Assistant producer Debra Alban and I are off to the Razzies in a couple hours.
My money's on "Basic Instinct 2"
for worst picture, though you can't rule out "Lady in the Water."
The former was merely trying to be a decent thriller; the latter was infused with M. Night Shyamalan's self-importance. That's gotta count for something.
There's something wonderful about a cheeky awards ceremony honoring bad movies -- and the Razzies, which have remained deliberately amateurish, do a fine job. All the hand-wringing that surrounds the Oscars is nonexistent. The only point is to have a good laugh.
I look forward to laughing -- a lot.
(Want more laughs at the expense of bad films? See if you can find copies of the Medved brothers' "The 50 Worst Films of All Time" and/or "The Golden Turkey Awards.")
