    I'm just happy that Stallone has been nominated again. 30 nominations is not nearly enough for him

    Trust me, Gigli is every bit as bad as you could imagine.

    Shame House of the Dead didn't pick up a few nominations.

    Haven't seen House of the Dead nor do I want to, but I have seen House of 1000 Corpses and crap did that blow chunks.

    I think Boat Trip ended up on more critic's Worst Of 2003 lists than Gigli did. I think it wasn't on Ebert's list, and Owen Glieberman (Entertainment Weekly) even went out of his way to knock a film (can't remember which) with a line like "if you think Gigli was the worst film of 2003, you'd be wrong."

    Oh, and I agree 100% with Clint about House of 1000 Corpses. It was the worst 2003 film I personally saw (though I'm open to the likely possibility that there were worse out there).

    Stalone was over the top, goofy and laughable in Spy Kids 3D. But, you know, that was pretty much the way the part was supposed to be played.. as goofy. Sometimes I disagree with the Razzies, guess this would be one of them.. I know SK3D is one flick my kids are dying to get on DVD [​IMG]

    Thanks for the list Chris. Wow, Ben Affleck not too popular is he? Is it J-Lo's fault I wonder or was he always regarded as a crap actor? Worse on-screen couple too, probably a lock.
    No real surprises in the list, well maybe Al Pacino, but I haven't seen Gigli.

    The Razzies are even dumber than the Oscars. Isn't the point of a counter-culture awards ceremony to actually have a unique perspective?

    WoW, what a contrast. Alec Baldwin is nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Supporting Actor category for The Cooler. Wouldn't it be great if he made history by winning both awards [​IMG]

    Why are people so hard on the Charlie's Angels sequel? I mean, did you see the first one? It's not like the sequel is any WORSE than the original. To call it the worst sequel somehow implies the first was any good.

    I agree. Though I didn't actually see it, there is no possible way the sequel could suck any worse than the first "Angels".

    What I wanna know is how in the world did McG escape a worst director nomination? He's a hack's hack, for crying out loud, the absolute litmus test for exceedingly bad taste, and somehow the Wachowski's snuck past him on nothing more than dashed expectations? C'mon, folks. The W's tripped over their own high aspirations, but McG is just plain awful, and awful in the most crass, vile and pandering way possible.

    The Razzies are not intended to be taken seriously. This may be done so that the members of the Rasberry Foundation will not be sued for defamation or be seen as mean-spirited.

    Yeah, it is. The first was actually fairly fun, but the second just mines the same territory with weaker results...

    You have a point there Mark, all of these films were rumoured to be shit even before they were released in theatres. The Razzies should have been a bit nasty, mean and questionable, not just stating the bleeding obvious.[​IMG]

    Wow. You know it must have been a truly terrible year when Boat Trip can't even get a nomination for Worst Picture.

    I know this is not meant to be taken seriously but it seems like in a lot of cases they just take the 5 worst movies and give nominations to anyone they can associate with them. For example, I saw Al Pacino and Christopher Walken nominated for worst supporting for Gigli. Two highly accomplished veteran actors. I did not see Gigli but it almost unanimously a horrible movie. But, did Pacino and Walken really give bad performances, or are they nominated just for being in the movie?
