Published On January 23, 2018 | By Joe Gordon | Awards, Film TV & Theatre, News

We’re well into the swing of awards season, but there is one gong that most artists dread winning rather than covet, and that is the famous Golden Raspberries, or Razzies, given out for the most incredibly pants films of the year just gone (motto “Own your bad”).
