My Razzie Predictions 2012

The Razzies, the awards show that honors the worst on the big screen, will announce its winners on Sunday, April 1.  So I’ll be naming the films which I think I should win the dishonor (that’s not a compliment).

Now let me just say I didn’t see any of these films (except for Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which I was asked by a friend to see), so I’m looking at the movies’ trailers, reviews, and reputations of the actors and directors.

May the worst man win!

Worst Picture:

Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star

Jack & Jill

New Year’s Eve

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1

Every one of these films was critically derailed.  As bad as Jack and Jill looks, Bucky Larson seemed even stupider (both films has Adam Sandler, who starred in and wrote Jack and Jill and also wrote Bucky Larson).  But I’m putting my money that Jack and Jill will win the prize.

Worst Actor:

Russell Brand, Arthur

Nicolas Cage, Drive Angry 3-D, Season Of The Witch, and Trespass

Taylor Lautner, Abduction and Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I

Adam Sandler, Jack & Jill and Just Go With It

Nick Swardson, Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star

Looking at the nominees, you have Russell Brand, the terrible British comedian no one really finds funny, the former great actor Nicholas Cage, the lifeless Taylor Lautner, and unfunny comic pals Adam Sandler and Nick Swardson.  Sandler is perhaps the worst actor in Hollywood (with the possible exception of Rob Schneider), and this award suits his dishonor.  Plus, in every movie he’s in, he plays a rich guy, which really annoys me.

Worst Actress:

Martin Lawrence (As ‘Momma’), Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son

Sarah Palin (As ‘Herself’), Sarah Palin: The Undefeated
Sarah

Jessica Parker, I Don’t Know How She Does It and New Year’s Eve

Adam Sandler (As ‘Jill’), Jack & Jill

Kristen Stewart, Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I

The Razzies often get political (such as when George Bush was nominated for Fahrenheit 9/11), so this explains why Palin is on the list. Though he’s actually not an actress, the award undoubtedly has to go to Adam Sandler.

Worst Supporting Actress:

Katie Holmes, Jack & Jill

Brandon T. Jackson (As “Charmaine”), Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son

Nicole Kidman, Just Go With It

David Spade (As “Monica”), Jack & Jill

The Underwear Model (Aka Rosie Huntington-Whiteley), Transformers: Dark Of The Moon

Michael Bay tried to find a lifeless actress who guys would drool for after Megan Fox left the Transformers series.  He found the right person.

Worst Supporting Actor:

Patrick Dempsey, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon

James Franco, Your Highness

Ken Jeong, Big Momma’s #3, Hangover Part 2, Transformers #3 and Zookeeper

Al Pacino (As ‘Al Pacino’), Jack & Jill

Nick Swardson, Jack & Jill and Just Go With It

Swardson is a terrible actor, but since it’s likely a Jack and Jill sweep, Al Pacino will win.

Worst Screen Ensemble:

The Entire Cast of Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star

The Entire Cast of Jack & Jill

The Entire Cast of New Year’s Eve

The Entire Cast of Transformers: Dark Of The Moon

The Entire Cast of Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I

Jack and Jill has some of my least favorite actors (Adam Sandler, Nick Swardson, Rob Schneider, David Spade), but New Year’s Eve will probably win for its big celebrity cast, though it was almost as atrocious-looking.

Worst Director:

Michael Bay, Transformers: Dark Of The Moon

Tom Brady, Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star

Bill Condon, Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I

Dennis Dugan, Jack & Jill and Just Go With It

Garry Marshall, New Year’s Eve

The usual Sandler director, Dennis Dugan, deserves to win for the atrocious films he made this year.

Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel

Arthur

Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star (Rip-Off of Boogie Nights and A Star Is Born)

The Hangover Part 2 (Both a sequel and a remake!)

Jack & Jill (Remake/Rip-Off of Ed Woods’ Glen or Glenda)

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I

Well, these contain most of the same Worst Picture nominees.  But I guess the Razzies will give Breaking Dawn the worst prize. 
Oh yeah, Adam Sandler figured a way to make Ed Wood look good too.

Worst Screen Couple:

Nicolas Cage & Anyone Sharing the Screen with Him in Any of His Three 2011 Movie

Shia Lebeouf & The Underwear Model (Aka Rosie Huntington-Whiteley), Transformers #3

Adam Sandler & EITHER Jennifer Aniston OR Brooklyn Decker, Just Go With It

Adam Sandler & EITHER Katies Holmes, Al Pacino OR Adam Sandler, Jack & Jill

Kristen Stewart & EITHER Taylor Lautner OR Robert Pattinson, Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part I

Jack and Jill all the way!

Worst Screenplay:

Bucky Larson: Born To Be A Star, Written by Adam Sandler, Allen Covert and Nick Swardson

Jack & Jill, Screenplay by Steve Koren & Adam Sandler, Story by Ben Zook

New Year’s Eve, Written by Katherine Fugate

Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, Written by Ehren Kruger

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I, Screenplay by Melissa Rosenberg, from the novel by Stephenie Meyer

Bucky Larson probably has the stupidest plot here, but Jack and Jill has the worst premise.  Sandler has it coming either way.
