The Worst of 2009


As it is always customary and as it has been done for 30 years now, movies are not only awarded for the best performances and achievements but they are also awarded for the worst. Presenting the worst
Hollywood had to offer this year are the Golden Raspberry Awards. You may have heard of the Oscars, but have you ever heard of the Razzies. Yes, the Razzies are awarded not to the best, but to the
worst and this year is nothing out of the ordinary. The Razzies are awarded a day before the Oscars. Unfortunately we’ll never get to see the speeches by these worst actors, directors and producers.
Maybe we’ll get lucky on YouTube. Without further ado, here are the nominations for this year’s Raspberry Awards:
