Encyclopedia > Golden Raspberry

The Golden Raspberries or Razzies were created by John Wilson in 1980, intended to complement the Academy Awards by dishonoring the worst acting, screenwriting, songwriting, directing, and films that the film industry had to offer. Current awards are voted upon by the membership of the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation. Traditionally, "nominations" are announced one day before the Motion Picture Academy announces its Oscar nominations, and the "awards" are presented one day before the Oscar ceremony.

The term "raspberry" is used in its irreverent sense, as in "Bronx cheer."

Many quite distinguished actors, directors and producers have received the recognition of a Golden Raspberry.
