Razzies Pushes Back Its 2012 Worst Movies Awards to April Fool's Day


The 2012 Razzies Awards, which will be held to dis-honor Worst Achievements in Film for 2011, has been rescheduled to reveal its nominees on Oscars' eve and announce the winners on April 1.

The organizers of Golden Raspberry Awards a.k.a Razzies Awards have rescheduled the prize-giving ceremony for its twenty-third worst-movie awards show. While the winner announcement used to take place one night before the Academy Awards, it will be held on April Fool's Day this year.

In an announcement released on Sunday, January 22, Razzies founder John Wilson stated that the nominations will be revealed during a press conference at Magicopolis in Santa Monica on February 25, a day before the Oscars takes place. Meanwhile, the winners of this year's Tinsel Town's Tackiest trophies will all be announced on Sunday, April 1.

Wilson explained that Razzies organizers have long wanted to have the prize-giving show coincide with April Fool's Day. He additionally said that the new schedule will give a chance for the 600 Razzies voters some "additional time to see the dreck they will eventually nominate."

Founded by lifelong cine-maniac and cynic John Wilson, the Razzies are a "light-hearted parody of award shows in general and The Oscars in particular." It is said that this year's potential nominees include Adam Sandler, who is considered a top-pick for Worst Actress for his role as Jill in "Jack and Jill".

Taylor Lautner is rumored to be one of the potential contenders thanks to his role as Jacob in "The Twilight Saga's Breaking Dawn Part I", while Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is also said to be the potential worst actress nominee for her role as Carly in "Transformers: Dark of the Moon".
