  1. This is so funny and sounds like a lot of fun! Hopefully the Razzie trophy will have a place next to the Oscars and Golden Globe awards some of these actors have received. Being nominated and receiving a Razzie is a good thing!!

  2. It is amazing that they are able to narrow it down to only 5 per category.
