Awards News: 30th Annual Golden Raspberry (Razzie) Awards

On Saturday night, the day before the Oscars, the The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation presented their anti-Oscar awards known as Razzies.  The Worst Picture award went to Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which also took Worst Director for Michael Bay's work.  Both "wins" were highly deserved. Sandra Bullock took the Worst Actress prize for her performance in All About Steve and if she wins the Academy Award for Best Actress for The Blind Side as many expect, she will become the first person in history to win a Razzie and Oscar in the same year. She received an additional award for Worst Screen Couple, which she shared with co-star Bradley Cooper.

To her credit, she showed up to accept her awards as she had promised.  She was very good-natured and joked with the voters who had assembled in the Hollywood theatre. "Thank you for ruining my career with a very bad decision," she said. "I think that this is an extraordinary award, and I didn't realize that in Hollywood that all you had to do was say you'll show up and then you'd get it. If I had known that, I would have said I was appearing at the Oscars a long time ago." She went on to give her performance in the movie a very spirited defence.  She had with her a copy of the script and a cartload of hundreds of DVDs of All About Steve.  You can see her acceptance speech online
