Special Governors’ Award for The Worst Calendar Year EVER!:

*** end of rundown ***

Piercing Ken Thoughts: In looking over the list, I am almost relieved to be able to mention that I didn’t see almost all of these nominated films. I am well aware of the actors that participated in them but the only film I can claim to have seen is “Wonder Woman 1984” which is nominated for “Worst Sequel” and “Worst Supporting Actress”. As a long time fan of the superhero medium in comics and on film I will agree that “Wonder Woman 1984” was terrible and deserves to be in The Razzies for the year. The winners will be announced in late April and when we learn the winners from these losers you can be rest assured that I will post them all here for the readership. Closing up I wonder what you think of the nominations for The Razzies. Did you see something different that you felt was horrible as heck and should have been included? If so we ask that you chime in down below as that kind of stuff makes the post more interesting. That’s all I have for now, I will see you again soon so please stay safe out there.
