Razzies Leader Pooh-Poohs the Soilies

It's on! Responding to yesterday's unveiling of the inaugural Movieline Soily Awards, an eagle-eyed commenter pointed out this brief note posted to the Golden Raspberry Awards official message board — a reply apparently from "Head RAZZberry" John Wilson himself:

"Many a RAZZIE® imitator has come and gone during the 32 years we've been doing our awards. And looking over their category names and choices, I've gotta say the so-called 'Soilys,' [sic] with their fixation on excremental terminology and their categories with names few American publications would even touch (let alone publish) look likelier to join the 'gone' list than make the brief roster of our 'competitors' who've stood the test of time..."

Wait — so is he saying that we're not going to get the Shit-the-Bed Award written up in USA Today? Who knew? Anyway, Wilson or his representative or whoever brings up a crucial element of the awards that we did omit: SOILIES® looks so much more dignified, no?

We also seem to have forgotten to charge folks to vote. Oops. Next year!

    Sounds like sour grapes raspberries to me.

  • Do bears have award presentations in the woods? Do
    bears walk the brown carpet? There are tons more bad
    movies than good, and to recognize this I believe there
    might as well another award. Recognition should be
    given, though, to the idiots who green-light projects,
    and actually fork over the dough. A Thousand Words.
    SOILY: two-ply.

    John Wilson's response sounds constipated.

    He's right, guys. The Raspberries suck and are a huge missed opportunity. There's an opening in the marketplace for someone who wants to do this thing right and shine a light on bad filmmaking.

    But the fecal stuff is alienating. A poor choice.

  • Authentic cycling jerseys are the same cycling jerseys that avid gamers wear over the games. Since hockey gis are longsleeved, and because the material utilised is high quality, authentic gis cost in excess of $100 in most outlets. Since most admirers only need 1 or 2 jerseys, they frequently consider the extra cost well worth what we receive in return.
