Golden Raspberry Award

A Golden Raspberry Award, or Razzie for short, is an award presented in recognition of the worst in film. Founded by American copywriter and publicist John J. B. Wilson in 1981, the annual Razzie Awards ceremony in Los Angeles precedes the corresponding Academy Awards ceremony by one day. The term raspberry in the name is used in its irreverent sense, as in "blowing a raspberry". The awards themselves typically cost $4.97 each, in the form of a "golfball-sized raspberry" which sits atop a Super 8 mm film reel, the whole of which is spray-painted gold.

The first Golden Raspberry Awards ceremony was held on March 31, 1981, at John J. B. Wilson's living room alcove in Los Angeles to honour the worst in film of the 1980 film season. The 32nd ceremony was held at Magicopolis in Santa Monica on April 1, 2012. The nominations were announced on February 25, 2012.

    The award of a pure gold medal for poetry would flatter the recipient unduly: no poem ever attains such carat purity.

    O polished perturbation! golden care!
    That keep’st the ports of slumber open wide
    To many a watchful night.
