The Golden Raspberry Awards, known as the Razzies, announced their winners Saturday, awarding the best of the worst in film. As usual, the Razzies tend to go for the obvious and repetitive, and sometimes blame the performers when it isn’t their fault. This year they got rather political. And there’s a bit of a surprise here with Melissa McCarthy being called out for two terrible movies, when tomorrow night she’s up for an Oscar for an excellent one.
