As the race for the year’s most coveted trophies came to a close with this weekend’s Oscars ceremony, another much less prestigious awards competition was just getting started. Nominations have been announced for the 32nd Razzie Awards, handed out to the “worst achievements in film” each year.

Leading the 2012 list is Adam Sandler, whose involvement in Jack and Jill, Bucky Larson, and Just Go With It earned him a record-breaking eleven Razzie nominations. That’s more than twice as many as the previous record holder, Norbit star Eddie Murphy, received in 2007. Other standouts include Nicolas Cage, Ken Jeong, Sarah Palin, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I, and The Hangover Part II. Read the full list of nominees after the jump.

As you probably recall: Back in 2009, actress Megan Fox went public with her professional issues with Michael Bay, calling her Transformers director “a tyrant” and likening him to Napoleon and Adolf Hitler. Fox (unsurprisingly) caught heat for her comments, and though Bay made some attempts to smooth things over, the two continued sniping publicly and eventually parted ways. Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was brought in to replace Fox as Shia LaBeouf‘s even more improbably gorgeous love interest, Fox pursued other projects, and the story should have ended there.

Unfortunately, Fox, Bay, and LaBeouf all have a tendency toward what might politely be called outspokenness, and what might less charitably called a constitutional inability to shut the hell up — and so here we are, a year later, still reporting on this ridiculous story. Bay is attempting to set the story straight. Again. And this time, he’s bringing Steven Spielberg into it for some reason. Sigh. Read the latest chapter in this tiresome and apparently endless saga after the jump.

Transformers 3 Logo Officially Released

Last week we got our first peek at the logo for Michael Bay’s Transformers 3 , officially titled Transformers: Dark of the Moon, in a blurry screencapture from Entertainment Tonight’s set visit. Paramount Pictures have launched a placeholder website which gives us a better, higher resolution, at the film’s logo. Yes, that is the dark side of the moon reflected in the film’s title. I really think Paramount should just pony up the cash to buy the rights to “Dark Side of the Moon” as it sounds much better than “Dark of the Moon”. Hit the jump to see the full image.

Entertainment Tonight’s behind the scenes visit to the set of the third Transformers movie, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, is online. In a way it’s just like being there, because you’ll see the same set of explosions over and over again. Plus, because many of us complained about the characters in the last movie, this video piece is very concerned with telling us all about the characters’ relationships in the third film. Noted: be careful what we ask for. Read More »

Director Michael Bay and his Transformers movies just can’t catch a break. Who could forget when star Shia LaBeouf got badly injured making Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen? Or when a female extra was left with brain damage after an accident during filming of the third film in Chicago? (She recently filed a lawsuit against the production.) Well, the hits just keep on coming. Literally. Monday afternoon, a Washington D.C. police officer responding to an emergency call narrowly missed crashing into Optimus Prime before slamming into Bumblebee on the set of the Transformers: The Dark of the Moon and it was beautifully caught on tape by a local news team. We’ve got the video and details after the jump but there’s no word if the Decpticons were behind the accident. Read More »
