So The Golden Raspberries 2009 have been announced, but can any of the nominations possibly live up to the former glories (?) of previous winners.
While few celebs bother to turn up to collect their “honours”, we thought we’d take a look at some good sports and notable moments from the awards’ history. Because why should the golden baldie get all the fun?
1. Paul Verhoeven becomes the first “winner” to appear
Paul Verhoeven has directed some great films, like Robocop and Black Book. But he also made Showgirls. So it only seemed fair that when he scooped Worst Director and Worst Film for the glitzy Vegas cheese-fest, he made Razzie history by actually turning up at the ceremony to claim his prizes.
2. Brian Helgeland’s double shot
It’s not every filmmaker who can simultaneously win an Oscar and a Razzie, but Brian Helgeland managed it, winning the Academy gong for L.A Confidential and the Razzie for The Postman. While he didn’t attend the ceremony, he did ask to get the Raspberry and it was presented to him at his office on the Warners lot.
