Awards Watch: Razzie Nominations

On the day before the best films of the year are honored with Academy Award nominations, it's time to look at the opposite end of the spectrum with the Golden Raspberry Award nominees for the worst movies of 2008.

Six cinematic stinkers are in the running for "Worst Picture" — Disaster Movie, The Happening, The Hottie and the Nottie, In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, The Love Guru and Meet the Spartans — while such not-so-notable names as Paris Hilton, Larry the Cable Guy and Kim Kardashian are among those "honored" in the "acting" categories.

However, it seems that the big "winner" is "director" Uwe Boll. His 2008 trifecta of tripe — In the Name of the King, 1968: Tunnel Rats and Postal — not only netted the awful "auteur" multiple mentions, he will also receive a special award created just for him: "Worst Career Achievement".

The 29th Annual Razzie Awards will be handed out Oscar Eve, February 21, in an "intentionally tacky ceremony" in (where else) Hollywood. See the comment section below for a quick look at all the nominees.
