AFT Awards: Worst Movie of the Year

This is the twenty-fifth category of the 3rd Annual AFT Film Awards to be announced. The AFT Awards are my own personal choices for the best in film of each year and the best in television of each season. The AFT Film Awards include the traditional Oscar categories and a number of additional specific honors, or dishonors in this case. Nominees are pictured in the order I’ve ranked them. Click here to see previous years of this category. I'm proud to announce that I have seen none of the Razzie Award nominees from this year, but there are still a few films I loathed from 2009.


The winner:
Bruno was heinous, crude, offensive, shocking, and in no way good. It was especially difficult to bear after the success of “Borat” and its blatant failure to reproduce that same creativity.

Other nominees:
Observe and Report was despicable, unfunny, crude, and off-putting if you managed to stay awake. The Ugly Truth took two good actors and gave them nothing to work with save for the same recycled jokes that weren’t anywhere near as unhinged or perverse as they should have been. The Girlfriend Experience was a terrible exercise in artistic filmmaking which got so wrapped up in its portrait of a porn star that it disregarded story and sequence altogether. Whiteout featured so many things that didn’t make sense which made being trapped in Antarctica the least of its characters’ considerable problems.

Anne Fletcher is going to be directing the sequel to Enchanted. I really hope it doesn't turn into anything like The Proposal.
