Celluloid sewage

Nominations for the 2005 Razzies have been announced!

Since 1980, the Golden Raspberry Awards have been "saluting" the year's worst pictures, and 2005 really made the judges dance with glee, offering up such exquisite crap as Deuce Bigalow: European Gigalow, House of Wax, and the Why-God-Why? Dukes of Hazzard movie.

A new category this year goes beyond the silver screen to honor the "Most Tiresome Tabloid Targets." Yep, Tom 'n' Katie are on the ballot, as well as Britney, Bride of Britney, and Spawn of Britney.

On the Razzie site, you can see a video of the classy and gracious Halle Berry, who was the first celebrity to actually show up to accept her award (for worst actress in Catwoman).

This is the first year I've been blessed not to have wasted any of my increasingly scarce free time on any of the Raspberry nominees (I'm still seething over Daredevil). On the other hand, I haven't seen any of the Oscar nominees either, other than Batman Begins, which was nominated for Best Cinematography (go Wally Pfister!!).



I've seen 3 of the nominated movies this year. Of Brokeback Mountain, Crash, and Good Night and Good Luck, Crash is my favorite. Oh, I loved them all, but Crash is amazing. BTW, I make it a point never to see any movie that could be considered for a Razzie. So far so good.

I know one face I am sick of seeing, Paris Hilton. I do wish they'd stop covering her.

Yeah, I don't understand the appeal or why Hilton is supposed to be interesting. Sometimes hype is its own hype, y'know?
