Last night saw the creme de la creme of Hollywood turn out in their best frocks to accept the highest accolades any cinematic authority can bestow. However, elsewhere in Los Angeles, another movie award ceremony was being held - although I use the word 'award' lightly.

Over the last 35 years, the Golden Raspberry Awards, known colloquially as the Razzies, have firmly established themselves as the premier anti-Oscars award event. Instead of handing out coveted golden statuettes for the best of the year's cinema, the Razzies instead bestow a $4.97 spray painted trophy to the worst of what the year had to offer.

Below are the complete winners (or losers depending on how you see it) for the 35th Golden Raspberry Awards.

This year, the Razzies also introduced a new award, the Razzie Redeemer Award. This slightly less terrible award is given to a former Razzie winner or nominee who has since proven themselves to actually be pretty good at their chosen craft.

The Razzie Redeemer Award - Ben Affleck, from Gigli to Argo and Gone Girl

  • WINNER: Ben Affleck -- from Gigli to Argo and Gone Girl
  • Jennifer Aniston -- from Razzie-nominee to Cake
  • Mike Myers -- from Love Guru to documentary Supermensch
  • Keanu Reeves -- from Razzie-nominee to John Wick
  • Kristen Stewart -- from Twilight to Camp X-Ray

As you can imagine, none of the 'winners' actually turned up to the event to claim their awards. This is probably a good thing for Kirk Cameron, since carrying home all of his trophies could have been quite a challenge.

What do you think about the Razzies? Are they a necessary check and balance for terrible cinema, or just a cynical and pretentious self-congratulatory exercise for movie critics?
