On the day that the Oscars are being handed out, the nominations for the 32nd Annual Golden Raspberry (RAZZIES) Awards have been announced. While the Oscars reward the best in the film industry, the Razzies acknowledge the worst that was film in 2011.

Adam Sandler has been nominated for a record 11 nominations (he has more than doubled Eddie Murphy’s old record!)- including Worst Actor, Worst Film and Worst Actress! This is all for Jack and Jill (again I ask what was Al Pacino thinking??!!). I wonder if, like Sandra Bullock and Halle Berry before him, he will turn up to the Razzies to collect the awards himself (with 11 nominations and such an atrocious film like Jack and Jill I am sure he will walk away with more than one award!).

“The RAZZIES® were created in 1980 as a logical antidote to Tinsel Town’s annual glut of self-congratulatory awards byJohn Wilson, author of THE OFFICIAL RAZZIE® MOVIE GUIDE and EVERYTHING I KNOW I LEARNED AT THE MOVIES. Nominees were determined by mailing ballots to 657 voters in 46 U.S. states and 17 foreign countries. “Winners” will be announced, appropriately, on Sunday, April 1 – April Fools’ Day.” (razzies.com)

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
