Once again, I've given up on the Oscars just before the big three... frankly, because I doubt there will be any surprises - and yes, IMDb has just informed me that Natalie Portman won for Black Swan. Not that she didn't deserve it - because she was astounding in that movie. But it's all become so predictable. Where are the surprising upsets? Ann Hathaway and James Franco were sure pretty hosts, but they weren't very exciting. Oh look - James came out dressed as Marilyn. Soooo funny!

The awards I really care about were given out last night, anyway. The Golden Raspberry Awards, or The Razzies, were awarded last night in a ceremony attended by bad movie lovers and no celebs, unlike last year when Sandra Bullock showed up to accept her award or the year Halle Berry graciously accepted for Catwoman. I imagine this year's winners were either too embarrassed by (and rightfully so) or completely oblivious to, their nominations. If it's the latter, that's a shame, because they probably think their work was pretty good (or at least, acceptable). Of course, I loves me some bad movies, but I have to admit that the Razzie winners this year were all pretty unwatchable.

And those winners were:

Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel: Sex and the City 2

Worst Screenplay: M. Knight Shyamalan for The Last Airbender

Worst Screen Couple/Screen Ensemble: The entire cast of Sex and the City 2

Worst Eye-Gouging Misuse of 3D (new this year): The Last Airbender

Worst Supporting Actress: Jessica Alba for The Killer Inside Me; Little Fockers; Machete and  
                                             Valentine's Day.

Worst Supporting Actor: Jackson Rathbone (grandson of the immortal Basil) for The Last Airbender &  
                                         The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

Worst Actress: A 4-Way Tie! Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon for
                         Sex and the City 2.

Worst Actor: Ashton Kutcher for Killers and Valentine's Day.

Worst Director: M. Knight Shyamalon for The Last Airbender.

Worst Picture:

So there you have it, the worst of the worst in American films for 2010. I do hope you clicked all the links. They're all different and some of them (I think) are rather amusing. And while I've just learned that The King's Speech has won for Best Picture, I'm much happier knowing that The Last Airbender won for Worst.

More, anon.
