Bullock, ‘Transformers’ capture Razzies

LOS ANGELES — "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" was picked as last year’s worst picture at Saturday’s Razzies, and Sandra Bullock won worst actress for "All About Steve," on the eve of her expected Academy Awards triumph for another film.

Voters at the Razzies, which poke fun at the Oscars by giving out prizes for Hollywood’s critical misfires, chose Bullock for her romantic comedy flop. "All About Steve" came and quickly vanished at theaters in between her 2009 hits, "The Proposal" and "The Blind Side," the latter expected to win Bullock the best actress Oscar today.

If Bullock takes best actress for "The Blind Side," she will be the first person ever to win an Oscar and a Razzie over the same weekend.

"She’s in the unprecedented position, Saturday she’s the worst, and the very next night, she’s back on her feet, and she’s the best," said Razzies founder John Wilson. "We certainly don’t wish her ill at that other awards show."

Throughout awards season, Bullock has been good-natured about it, joking about the Razzies attention she has gotten along with the Oscar esteem.

Bullock and "All About Steve" co-star Bradley Cooper also shared the Razzie for worst screen couple.

The "Transformers" sequel won two other Razzies: worst director for Michael Bay and worst screenplay for Ehren Kruger, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman.

Bay and his team probably will not lose any sleep over it, though. Though reviled by critics, "Transformers" took in $402.1 million domestically, No. 2 on the 2009 box office chart behind "Avatar."

The worst actor Razzie went to siblings Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas for "Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience."

The Jonas’ pal Miley Cyrus, star of "Hannah Montana: The Movie," lost the worst actress category to Bullock. But her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, was named worst supporting actor for the big-screen "Hannah Montana."

Sienna Miller received the worst supporting actress Razzie for the action tale "G.I. Joe."

Will Ferrell’s action comedy flop "Land of the Lost" had come in tied with "Transformers" for the Razzies lead with seven nominations, but it was nearly shut out in every category.

Once ballots had been counted from the roughly 650 Razzies voters, "Land of the Lost" was tied for the group’s worst remake, rip-off or sequel prize. Razzies founder Wilson, who votes last, gave the tie-breaking vote to "Land of the Lost."

Razzie voters also made worst-of-the-decade picks, with John Travolta’s science-fiction debacle "Battlefield Earth" winning worst picture.

Paris Hilton was chosen as the decade’s worst actress.

Eddie Murphy, a 2009 Razzie nominee for "Imagine That," was named the decade’s worst actor.

A new Las Vegas city ordinance would carry the same penalties for people convicted of domestic violence as Nevada state law, but would eliminate the requirement for convicts to give up their firearms in order to avoid holding jury trials for each offense.
