With awards season now in high gear, perhaps no nods are more feared in Hollywood than the Razzie Awards!

The Razzie are presented by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation to honor the year's particularly stinky failures in the cinematic arts. (A raspberry is a sound like a fart made by audience members at a sporting event or performance to signal displeasure.)

The awards are now in their 29th year.  The official website of the Razzies notes that while the economy took a downturn in 2008, "so did the quality of Hollywood movie-making."

To prove the point, here are this year's main Razzie nominations:

  • Al Pacino, 88 Minutes and Righteous Kill
  • Eddie Murphy, Meet Dave
  • Larry the Cable Guy, Witless Protection
  • Mark Wahlberg, The Happening and Max Payne

UPDATE:

Hopefully Mike Myers and Paris Hilton share Kim Kardashian's sense of humor about their flicks being singled out.

"I'm having a really good laugh over the fact that I've been nominated for a Razzie this year," Kardashian, 28, wrote on her official site today.

In a nod to her fellow nominees, Kim cheekily added, "There is steep competition in my 'worst supporting actress' category, I have to admit, including my fantastic costar Carmen Electra (you go girl!), Leelee Sobieski (what a surprise!), Jenny McCarthy (really?) and Paris Hilton (who could technically sweep this year's awards with a whopping three nominations!)."
