Cast Your Vote for which RAZZIE NOMINEE should receive StinkyLulu's "Supporting Actress" treatment?

One of the more peculiar rituals of "Nomination Eve" comes when those odd folks over at THE RAZZIES announce their nominations of the "Worst" of 2009. Perhaps because I'm peculiar in my own way, I have developed what has become, since 2007, my own Oscar season Razzie ritual in which I will throw myself on the sword and give StinkyLulu's full Supporting Actress treatment to at least ONE of each year's Razzie Nominees. And YOU, lovely reader, get to choose WHICH performance it will be...

So cast your vote in the column at right and tell StinkyLulu which performance you think most deserves this extra bit of attention. (I've not seen any of the movies, so I'm surely in for a treat!)

I'm obsessed with Obsessed. Ali Larter will surely be a treat for you to experience.

Can I just, for a moment, say that it feel like a couple of cheap shots to single out Candice Bergen and Julie White -- two fine actresses who don't exactly have a surplus of amazing roles in Hollywood to choose from. Yes, they were both in abhorrent movies, but Bergen was no worse than anyone else in Bride Wars, and while I didn't see Transformers 2, White wasn't embarrassing herself in the first one. It just seems like an unnecessary low blow.

Anyway...I threw my vote to Sienna Miller but will happily and enthusiastically read your Ali Larter examination should that come to pass.

The Razzie's are mostly about cheap shots, unfortunately -- and they're especially hostile to mature women who might appear to have "lowered" themselves by appearing in a popcorn flick. It's a fanboy-driven snarkfest. (I joined last year and was somewhat appalled.) I wish it was a more legit celebration of the brilliance of badness, but for now it's what I got. (And without it I would never have had the opportunity to profile Julia Ormond in I KNOW WHO KILLED ME, a truly brilliant mess.)

Oh, trust me, I'm not criticizing you for writing about the Razzies. Just venting (and sticking up for my girl Julie).

I actually don't think Larter is that bad. Just given a thankless task.

She would make for an interesting write-up.

I weep for Julie White :(

Ali Larter gets the character utterly, utterly wrong.

Obsessed is ridiculously bad but I must admit the final 20 minutes are some of the most deliriously entertaining I've ever seen.

Also, technically, Larter is the lead and Beyonce is the supporting actress.

Yeah--the Julie White thing makes me sad, since I love her, and she's brilliant on stage, but I do know it's not your pick.

Kelly Preston would be my vote, since I don't really care that much about her.

I know we're not here to challenge the Razzie nominations, but I thought Sienna Miller's performance was the only remotely interesting one in G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra. And yes, I saw it in the theater on opening day because I cannot resist Channing Tatum jumproping with his shirt off. I'm only human. Rachel Nichols, on the other hand, was stiff as a board.

StinkyLulu said...

It's been my brief experience, Jakey, that such is often the case with the Razzie's. And she might (like Julie White) be a "coaster" in this year's Razzie contest, boosting the sum total of nominations for the films that truly elicited the Razzie-boy ire.

I just wish there were another body that actually called out the most fascinatingly weird and brilliantly bad performances each year...

Middento said...

Good God. These all look sooooooo awful...

On the topic of "fascinatingly weird and brilliantly bad", I think you would really enjoy the work of Mari Natsuki in the 2001 Japanese film "Shoujyo: An Adolescent".
