Those reading my articles and those familiar with the unworthy moral ranking I tend to adopt as unique criteria will know very well my neat position concerning “The Beauty of the Ugly”: if it is arduous to make beautiful things, well, I believe that making ugly things (really really ugly, though) is even an independent form of Art.

The “ugliest Ugly”, that incredible Horror of failing everywhere, is hard to realize: often people achieve a partial “ugly”, like Susan Boyle (who had the requisites on an aesthetic point of with, but when she sings, she manages undoubtedly to create a form of “Beauty”) or, to be more updated and to cause – hopefully – debate, the movie Interstellar (whose script seems to achieve the goal of being ugly but that unfortunately reaches the aesthetic perfection). They are examples of “missed Ugly”, almost offensive towards the “incredible Ugly” that only few people manage to reach (almost always without the full willingness to realize something ugly).

Also this year, while movie-lovers and simple amateurs try to guess the winners of the Oscar Awards (I dare say that this time Wes Anderson and his Mr. Cumberbatch will be victorious. Just to be 100% sure, I allow myself to a second guess: Micheal Keaton), the anti-nominations for the anti-Oscar finally arrived: The Razzie Awards. It is a pity that only few followers were waiting for them!

What are the Razzie Awards?!?

Oh dear Lord… The Razzie Awards (true name, The Golden Raspberry Awards) have been attributed since 1981, and the ceremony as the goal to celebrate the worst actors, script-writers, composers, directors and movies of the year. The best of the worst, we could say. In 2013 Will Smith managed to win in many categories with the obscene, almost mentally offensive, After Heart, but this year the competition is much tougher. 2014 was in fact a gold season for the Cinema, with capital C, but – trust me – was at least equally prolific for the one with little c (extremely little, even written in Comic Sans, just to make things worse).

Officially the nominations will be released on January 14th, the day before the Oscar ones, but in reality we already know them, because the 10th the jury voted them, and the names have been leaked. We want here to congratulate with James Franco and Serg Rogen because they managed to produce (we had no doubt about that) the movie which is first for number of nominations (worst movie, worst couple and worst actor, James Franco). After that, let me list you all the names, excited and happy indeed. May the worst win!!!
