The 2011 Razzie Awards: It's Sad When Even the Razzies Sell Out

Like the Golden Globes’ annual nominations for the undeserving but popular (Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Burlesque in 2010), the Razzies have become less about celebrating the absolute worst that cinema has to offer and more about awarding the worst-of awards to whomever might be the biggest gossip fodder of any given year. There were a lot of seriously bad films and performances in 2010, and the winners below are certainly among them. But they’re not the absolute worst. But, then, who pays attention to Skyline? And Kristen Bell (When in Rome) just doesn’t have the gossip-blog driven power of Jessica Alba. So, instead of awarding the truly worst of the worst, the Razzies simply pile on the Sex and the City bandwagon of hate. It’s become like the MTV Movie Awards: Recognizing the most popular instead of the worst.

Here are your losers.
