"Movie 43," the commercially unsuccessful and critically lambasted anthology comedy featuring such stars as Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet and Halle Berry, "won" worst picture of 2013 Saturday night at the 34th Razzie Awards ceremony at Ignited Spaces in Hollywood. The tongue-in-cheek awards show, which "honors" the worst achievement in motion pictures, is always held the night before the Academy Awards. The comedy also won worst director for its 13 directors and worst screenplay for the 19 screenwriters on the project.

No matter what happens at the Academy Awards on Sunday night, lead actress nominee Sandra Bullock is a winner this weekend -- although not necessarily in the way aspiring young actors might dream of. Bullock, who drew raves for her performance in "The Blind Side," was honored twice Saturday for something very different at the 30th annual Razzie Awards, which tweak Hollywood in a good-natured way every Oscar weekend for the films it cranked out...

On the eve of Hollywood's biggest night, the Golden Raspberry Foundation picked Kevin Costner's box office bomb "The Postman" as the worst movie of 1997. Costner also took the Razzie Award for worst director and actor in "The Postman," and the movie got the group's Bronx cheer for worst screenplay. The film's entire song score got the worst song trophy.

With the Oscar nominations due out this morning, the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation took time Monday to remind us of some of the other films that were released in 2004. Leading the field for the group's 25th annual Razzie Awards -- saluting the worst films of the year -- were "Catwoman" with seven nominations and "Alexander" with six. Both are vying for the worst picture award along with "Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2," "Surviving Christmas" and "White Chicks." Winners will be announced Feb.

AS THE founder-creator of the Razzie Awards, I rarely think any film critic is being too harsh, but in the case of Kenneth Turan's overly vicious (and often off-the-mark) review of "Hancock," I find myself thinking just that ["Self-Destructive," July 1]. Although "Hancock" is hardly a perfect picture, it does feature three top-billed actors, all giving terrific performances. It has a plot that is anything but predictable. And it manages the enviable feat of being both laugh-out-loud funny and eye-mistingly moving.

"The Love Guru," after bombing at the box office last summer, had insult added to those injuries Saturday as the Mike Myers comedy was crowned worst film of 2008 at the Golden Raspberry Awards, the annual tongue-in-cheek event that plays counterpoint to the Oscars by celebrating the cheesiest of what Hollywood has to offer. But wouldn't you know it? Myers couldn't even reign supreme there without professional celebrity Paris Hilton shouldering in on the action. While Myers was (dis)

Mike Myers' comedy flop "The Love Guru" led the field Wednesday for the Razzies with seven nominations, among them worst picture and worst-acting slots for Myers, Jessica Alba, Verne Troyer and Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley. The other worst-picture contenders were "Disaster Movie" and "Meet the Spartans," Hollywood spoofs that shared a nomination for a "badly beaten dead horse of a concept"; the fright flick "The Happening"; Paris Hilton's romantic comedy bomb "The Hottie & the Nottie"; and the sword-and-sorcery fantasy "In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale."

Bad news at the movie box office in 2005 spelled good news for the 26th annual Razzie Awards: an abundance of candidates for consideration as the worst films and performances of the year. Leading the pack in the nominations being announced today: "Son of the Mask," the sequel (11 years later) to "The Mask" with Jim Carrey, but without Carrey.

'Tis the accolade season in Movieland, but where is the recognition for all the work that didn't make critics' top 10 lists for 2006 -- or even their top 50 lists?

Today, nominees for the worst films and performances of the year are announced, led by "Basic Instinct 2" and "Little Man," with seven nods among the 11 categories. "BloodRayne" was a runner-up with six citations.
