Out with the good (the Oscars)... in with the bad (the Razzies), celebrating, or is it shaming the worst of the year 2011, I give you the Razzie nominees announced this morning.

Big Mommas

Out with the good (the Oscars)... in with the bad (the Razzies), celebrating, or is it shaming the worst of the year 2011, I give you the Razzie nominees announced this morning. 

Of note, as the title of this post states, Martin Lawrence picked up a nom for Worst Actress for his performance in Big Mommas: Like Father Like Son

I'm surprised Tyler Perry as Madea isn't nominated for Madeas Big Happy Family

Here's an astounding stat worth sharing... if Madea was actually played by a real woman (instead of a man in drag), whoever played her would be one of the most bankable black actresses in Hollywood right now, if not actually THE most bankable. Funny right?
