Golden Raspberry Awards Award presented in recognition of the worst in film

The Golden Raspberry Awards is a parody award where they honor a booby prize to a film and the actors for embarrassing cinematic performances as part of ridicule. Co-founded by UCLA film graduates and film industry veterans John J. B. Wilson and Mo Murphy, the annual Razzie Awards ceremony in Los Angeles precedes the corresponding Academy Awards ceremony by one day. The term raspberry in the name is used in its irreverent sense, as in "blowing a raspberry". The awards themselves are in the form of a "golf ball-sized raspberry" atop a Super 8 mm film reel, all spray painted gold.
