Golden Raspberries (Razzies)

Golden raspberries are for the worst films
Also known as The Razzies. They're the 'alternative' film awards which everyone dreads as they give out prizes for the 'worst' everything!

The first Razzies were held in 1980 and were so small they took place in someone's living room! Now they're much bigger and most people enjoy them.

They give out awards for things like worst film, worst on-screen couple and worst sequel.

Past winners include Battlefield Earth, Howard the Duck and Wild Wild West. And poor old celebs like Madonna have been honoured with a Razzie for their acting, er, skills.

The trophy's suitably tacky too. It's a plastic raspberry sitting on top of a film can, and is worth about 2.50.
