The Razzies , the Oscars for bad films, is under some heat. Gawker recently accused the group for only picking big named movies to get publicity. Others accused them of picking winners based on if the star of the film will come on or not (that was me privately to my friends).
But founder and Head Raspberry John Wilson shoots down those vicious rumors.
He does admit that he was approached by a publicist to rig the votes so the client would win. Hear the shocking response. John admits to swaying the voters by letting them know that the celeb will show if he/she wins. But he would never just fixed the votes. No hanging Chads here.
The Razzies have been getting some back lash, but let’s put in perspective, it’s a competition for the worst movie.

Listen to older shows.
Dan Kois talks his obsession with the Razzies.
Last year I interviewed the Razzies founder John Wilson about the history of the awards.
Former Grantland.com writer obsessed with the Razzies & Nicko returns to insult – on this special show. Since he was a small child, Dan Kois wanted to go to the Razzies. He wanted to see great men and women get awards for terrible movies and films. All year he’s been covering the bad movie beat in Grantland. Dan gets on the horn to talk to us. Dan talks front-runners, the overlooked and what should be the over looked.
Then Nicko stops by to insult and run. I’ve been getting a lot of requests to have her back on the show. We tried to do a live episode, but I couldn’t figure out how to make the thingie work. So it’s a hilarious self-indulgent 23 minutes of Nicko insulting me. It’s part one of our chat. Part 2-4 (all short) will arrive shortly. People asked for it, so I’m trying to leave in the whole conversation. She’s a hilarious.
Take a second and post the episode to your twitter, facebook, digg or whatever you got. Everything counts. All make a big difference. Have a Happy New Year!
Former Grantland writer Andy Greenwald makes it easy to choose the first losers of the 2011 Fall line up. Adam Spiegelman (“Proudly Resents”) and Andy discuss the new show and his unique approach. Go to Grantland.com to fill out your own Fall TV Cancellation Fantasy League ballot. Hurry up, I have a feeling that Monday’s “Playboy Club” may be its last. The show looks like “Showgirls” meets “Mad Men” meets “Burlesque.”
CHECK OUT SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR “RINGER” BOAT SCENE.
Next week we should have a normal movie episode. Maybe with Nicko.
Wait… before you go… I just thought of this joke… the new CBS sitcom should be called “2 broke Girls and one cup!” That’s mine f’ers!
