Oscars shmoscars: Transformers 2 'wins' worst-movie Razzie

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was the big "winner"—not at the Oscars, which are handed out tonight—but at the Razzies, otherwise known as the 30th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards, which recognize the worst movies of the year.

The Transformers sequel copped Razzies for worst picture of 2009 and two other awards.

The Razzies are handed out every year on the eve of the Oscars to poke fun at the worst movies and movie performances of the year.

Transformers also snagged Razzies for Michael Bay as worst director and Ehren Kruger, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman for worst screenplay.

Transformers actually tied Land of the Lost, with seven nominations each. Astonishingly, Land was nearly shut out in every category.

But the 650 Razzie voters also managed to tie in their votes for worst prequel, remake, rip-off or sequel, and Razzie founder John Wilson cast the tie-breaking vote to throw the win to Land of the Lost. "It really did stink, and, I thought, well, it ought to get something, because it is a very bad movie," Wilson said.

The other sci-fi award went to Sienna Miller, who nabbed worst supporting actress for her performance in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.

In a special awards category, the Razzies "honored" Battlefield Earth as worst picture of the decade, Eddie Murphy (The Adventures of Pluto Nash) as worst actor of the decade and Paris Hilton (House of Wax) as worst actress of the decade.
