Razzies Relocate to April Fools’ Day

If you were eagerly awaiting tomorrow night’s announcement of the Razzies nominations, you’re about to be disappointed.

The organizers of the infamous award show spoof have decided to take full advantage of the 2012 calendar and have rescheduled both their nomination and prize ceremonies.

Traditionally, the Razzie nominations, dishonouring the worst achievements in film, have been announced the night before the Oscar nominations, with the award ceremony being held the night before the Oscar’s ceremony.

But when John Wilson and Mo Murphy, the co-owners of the Razzies, flipped through the calendar and saw that April 1st landed on a Sunday this year, they couldn’t pass up the opportunity to bestow “Tinsel Town’s Tackiest Trophy” on April Fools’ Day.

No surprise to anyone, Adam Sander tops the list of potential nominees. But with involvement in ‘Jack and Jill’, ‘Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star’ and ‘Just Go With It’, this could be the year Sandler snatches the record for most Razzie nominations in a single year from Eddie Murphy.

So, be patient and update your calendar! This year the nominations for the Razzies will be announced on Feb. 25, the eve of the Oscar ceremony. The winners will be announced on Sunday April 1.
