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?).

Speed Racer, Disaster Movie and Meet the Spartans, The Day the Earth Stood Still, High School Musical 3, The Hottie & The Nottie, Dungeon Siege, The Love Guru, Postal, Rambo, The happening, Meet Dave, Witless Protection
