Starting with an Oscar Night ceremony so small it was actually staged in a living room alcove, The Golden Raspberry (RAZZIE®) Awards have since grown into what E! On-Line recently called "the foremost authority on all things that suck on the big screen." Annually presenting Dis-Honors for Worst Achievements in Film since 1980 in categories ranging from the obvious (Worst Picture, Actor, and Actress) to the obtuse (Worst Remake or Sequel and Worst Screen Couple) The RAZZIES® today receive television, radio, and newspaper coverage around the world. Their yearly bestowing of Tinsel Town's Tackiest Trophies is regularly covered by all three major worldwide newswire services (AP, UPI, and Reuters) CNN, major market TV network affiliates across the U.S. and on nationwide ABC, NBC, and CBS Network Radio news. They also receive print coverage in USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The Hollywood Reporter, Premiere, and People-on-Line Magazines. It has been estimated that the worldwide audience annually exposed to information about The RAZZIES® is over One Billion People.
