The Golden Raspberry Awards (also known in short terms as Razzies and Razzie Awards) is a mock award in recognition of the worst in film. Co-founded by UCLA film graduates and film-industry veterans, John J. B. Wilson and Mo Murphy, the annual Razzie Awards ceremony in Los Angeles precedes the corresponding Academy Awards ceremony by one day. The term raspberry in the name is used in its irreverent sense, as in “blowing a raspberry“. The awards themselves are in the form of a “golf ball-sized raspberry” which sits atop a Super 8 mm film reel, the whole of which is spray painted gold.
The first Golden Raspberry Awards ceremony was held on March 31, 1981, at John J. B. Wilson‘s living-room alcove in Los Angeles, to honor the worst in film of the 1980 film season. The 38th ceremony will be held on March 3, 2018.

About the Geek vs podcast
Things are about to get weird when Tony, Casey, and Betty get together weekly to provide a “nerd’s eye view of pop culture.” These only children geeks have somehow managed not to kill each other, as they do battle with movies, television, and all things pop culture.
