2008 Razzie Award Nominations for ‘Worst Movies’ Announced

MTV has scooped a list of the nominations for the 29th Annual Razzie awards (aka the Golden Raspberry Awards) for the most awesomely bad moments in movie-making — and this year’s list is full of egregious examples of awfulness.

It’s hard not to see agree that certain films (The, ahem, Love Guru) simply should never have been made; that some “actresses” are barely worth the designation (Paris, ahem, Hilton), and that many a recent prequel has completely “nuked the fridge” (Indiana Jones, what happened?).
