Like the Razzies, we here at GOPClownShow do the Golden Elephant Turd Award every year to spread the values of Mock and Scorn around in what we like to call the Republican Razzies!
In keeping with the GOPPER tradition of plagiarism, here is an explanation from Wikipedia without quotes:
The Golden Raspberry Awards, called the Razzies for short, is an annual award ceremony held in Los Angeles to recognize the worst in film. Founded by American copywriter and publicist John J.B. Wilson in 1981, the event precedes the corresponding Academy Award ceremony by one day. The term raspberry in the name is used in its irreverent sense, as in “blowing a raspberry”. The awards themselves typically cost US$4.79 each, in the form of a “golfball-sized raspberry” which sits atop a Super 8 mm film reel; the whole of which is spray-painted gold.
Blowing a raspberry or strawberry or making a Bronx cheer is to make a noise signifying derision (and/or silliness), made by sticking out the tongue between the lips and blowing to make a sound reminiscent of flatulence (not to be confused with John McCain grunting).

Worst Actress Ever (worse than JLo in Gigli and Madonna in Swept Away because there is simply NO redeeming factor here): Bristol Palin in Secret Lives. A consolation prize goes to the editor and director, for staying on the other actress for as long as possible without making it appear that Bristol’s voice was floating disconnected from any human. Had they used an animated ghost, it would have been more believable than this performance. Poor Bristol. At least she has Levi back now. Here ya’ go, but don’t say I didn’t warn ya’ first– this is what the drinks are for.
