Movie 43 and After Earth were the big “winners” at the Razzies last night, with each film taking home three trophies from the awards ceremony that “honors” the worst movies of 2013.

Movie 43, which featured Hugh Jackman, Dennis Quaid, Kate Winslet, Seth MacFarlane, Chris Pratt, Emma Stone and many more big Hollywood stars in various short films being pitched to studios by a washed-up producer, took home the award for Worst Picture, Worst Screenplay and Worst Director — or directors, as the film had 13. After Earth, the science fiction film directed by M. Night Shyamalan that starred Will and Jaden Smith, took home the awards for Worst Lead Actor, Worst Supporting Actor and Worst Screen Combo for the father-son duo.

Tyler Perry won his eighth Razzie for Worst Actress for A Madea Christmas, where he once again performed in drag, while Kim Kardashian took the Worst Supporting Actress statue for her role in Tyler Perry’s Temptation. Disney’s big tax write-off The Lone Ranger took home the award for Worst Remake/Rip-Off or Sequel.

The 34th annual Razzie Awards were presented in Los Angeles last night in an hour-long ceremony. You can visit their website to see the complete list of nominees, if you’re looking for a list of what not to watch on Netflix tonight.

    After Earth was on Starz and out of curiosity I watched about ten minutes of it. And that’s all I could stomach of it. It really is that bad of a movie. It’s borderline child abuse putting Jaden Smith in front of a camera when he clearly has no talent for it. His father is just setting him up for failure and ridicule.

    I can’t help thinking that people who make these Razzies are sadder than the people who receive them. After all, the people who made them actually have made something, even if it was not done well, while these Razzie people do nothing creative beyond finding ways to mock other people’s creative efforts.
    It’s just that, when I see something I did not like, I just stop watching it and talking about it and do things I actually enjoy doing. But, these people, along with a large number of internet trolls, just need to go on and on about how much they hate something, causing me to suspect that, deep in their hearts, they love this stuff, and negative bile is the only way they can express that love.
