This year Sandra Bullock could very well win an Oscar for best actress for “The Blind Side” and a Razzie for worst actress in “All About Steve.”
That’s one of the interesting story angles following the announcement of the 2009 Razzie nominations today. The Razzies recognize Hollywood’s worst movies and performances. The Golden Raspberry Foundation releases its list of Razzie nominees the day before the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announces its Oscar nominations.
The organizers of the Razzies missed a golden opportunity to nominate 10 movies for worst picture of 2009. The Oscars are expanding the best picture nominees from five to 10 movies this year. But instead the Razzies dishonored just five movies this year, as usual.
This year’s nominees for worst picture are “All About Steve,” “G.J. Joe: The Rise of Cobra,” “Land of the Lost,” “Old Dogs” and “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.”
All great choices, but my pick is “Old Dogs” starring John Travolta and Robin Williams, because it can’t hide behind special effects like most of the other nominees.
