The Golden Globes officially kicked off awards season which is kind of like the Hollywood equivalent of football season, which culminates with the Academy Awards in March, basically the Hollywood Super Bowl… but with crappier musical numbers.  (Isn’t that ironic?)  34 years ago, The Golden Raspberry Awards began a tradition of taking place one day before the Academy Awards (also known as the Oscars), “honoring” the WORST movies of the year.  (A “Raspberry” is the official name of when you stick your tongue out and blow through your lips.)

This year the Will and Jaden Smith nepotism-fest ‘After Earth’ is one of the most nominated movies for the ‘Razzies’.  The Razzies started off as a small event, but in recent years has garnered more and more attention, with actual Hollywood stars like Ben Affleck, Halle Berry and Sandra Bullock actually showing up to accept their “awards.”  The Smiths face some heavy competition, however from Johnny Depp and his box office turkey ‘The Lone Ranger’.

The most obscure of these is ‘Movie 43’ which is on Netflix but if you haven’t seen it, DON’T!!!  I made it through maybe ten minutes, it’s THAT BAD!  And it stars like everyone in Hollywood, so you’d think someone somewhere would have noticed how horrible this was before it got made.  So the Smiths and Depp may be spared the dishonor just because of this one movie.

Do you agree?  Are there other movies/actors that you think were even worse?
