The Razzies Shift Their Awards To April Fool's Day
This makes sense: The Razzies have decided to move their annual awards ceremony to April Foolís Day.
"We want to try something different this year," Razzie founder John Wilson told the popular awards-tracking Web site GoldDerby.com. "It's like the year the Indie Spirits left the beach to go downtown. If it doesn't work out, we'll go back to the beach, so to speak, but this is a fun idea we've always wanted to do."
The Razzies used to center their humorous movie awards around the Oscars, announcing their nominations the day before the Academy revealed their nominations and handing out trophies the day before the official Oscar ceremony. This year, to reflect the date change, the Razzies will announce their nominations the day before the Oscars, with a ceremony held Feb. 25 at Magicopolis in Santa Monica.
GoldDerby polled awards experts on the likely frontrunner for this yearís Razzie award, and they wisely went with Adam Sandlerís Jack & Jill, which has the ridiculously popular comedian playing fraternal twins. Bank on Al Pacino earning more than one Razzie for his vile cameo as himself. I think itís also safe to say that the latest Twilight and Transformers sequels will do ďwellĒ at the Razzies, as their predecessors have blazed a trail of Ö um, failure? I donít know what to call it. I mean, an award is an award, and if Sandra Bullockís willing to stop by the Razzies to pick up her trophy for All About Steve, then we should treat them a little seriously. Right?
