Happy to say I've seen none of these. I've heard how vile Fantastic Four was so I can't say I'm surprised about all those nominations nor your expecting it to "win?" its various categories.

I've never understood how Paltrow could be the daughter of the brilliant Blythe Danner and be so devoid of both talent and personality so it's no shock to not only see her in the list but have you predict her receiving this dubious honor.

Hey, Joel, I've not seen any of the nominated films either - but I've read their bad reviews. As for Paltrow, I do like her as an actress, but I still think she has a good chance of winning a Razzie. And I've always adored the divine Ms. Danner, who received great reviews last year for her performance in I'll See You in My Dreams.
