Razzies Move To April Fools' Day
The Razzies -- the awards for the worst movies of the year -- will no longer piggy-back off Hollywood's awards season: The anti-Oscars are moving to April Fools' Day, Razzies founder John Wilson announced Sunday. Traditionally the group would have announced its nominees on Monday, on the eve of the Oscar nominations. Instead, they'll release a list of 2011's worst on February 25, the night before the Oscars are handed out. (Which is also traditionally when the Independent Spirit Awards are held.)
"Winners" will be announced April 1, although most don't usually show up to claim their Razzies, except for good sports like Halle Berry, who personally collected her 2004 Worst Actress Razzie for "Catwoman," as well as Sandra Bullock for "All About Steve" (the same year she won Best Actress for "The Blind Side").
A news release explained that the changes gives 600 Razzies voters "additional time to see the dreck they will eventually nominate." Sorry, guys, sounds like you'll have to see "Bucky Larson" after all.
