    It was tacked on along with Bratz and other films, but still Transformers is Going to the Razzies!

    You know, no disrespect to him, but I can see it. I wondered what he was doing in this movie... for someone so hyped up during and after the production, his role was so phoned in and awkward. Maybe even cartoony.

    Like the scene when he's walking down the hallway about "Thats our first priority, thats our only priority" or when he is talking about getting the radio's from the archives, and was a little too excited.

    He was OK, but I swear to God I think Megan Fox appeared more natural in her scenes. No joke. She felt like a real person reacting and interacting, Voight felt like when Al Pacino plays a bad impression of himself in every movie he's in :p

    Dude, he totally deserves one for Bratz. Transformers, not so much.

    Those first two nominations don't make any sense. I thought that Bloom & James were among the "stars" of those movies, not "supporting actors."

    Anyway, I liked Mr. Voight in Transformers. I hope Eddie Murphy gets the nod. He deserves some sort of lifetime underachivement award. I remember when he used to be funny....

    Wow! Is that a first--being nominated for the same award FOUR TIMES! John Voight is getting all sorts of love, isn't he?

    Sarcasm aside, I have to agree with the poster above who felt the award wasn't deserving of his performance in Transformers. Why isn't Tyrese or Josh on that list?!

    LOL. Not really the point I was making. Bratz was a HORRIBLE movie. I've only seen as much of it as I have because I have friends with older kids. It'll make your eyes bleed.

    I think it's unfair. It would make more sense to me for them to say "most under used supporting actor" since he wasn't given too much of a role. But he's a very good actor and a veteran one.

    4 roles = 4 times the chances of winning. Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking the man as he's done a lot of good stuff. Yet, his rolls over the past year have seemed canned to me. It's too bad. I hope he has a good sense of humor about this if he wins.

    man I was a fella of John Voight's acting tenure, I'd show up to the ceremony and accept all smiles and waves.

    Because I could still stand up and say "I made millions doing X film" so I still have more money than you :)

    There is -no- greater glory than attending and accepting your own Razzie.

    So let me get this straight, he's accepting an award for being the "Worst" actor in '07? Thats pretty bad. I thought he was good in Transformers and I hope he comes back for the next one. If it were me I would tell them what they could do with there award. :ev:

    Haven't seen the other flicks but in no way should he be up for a bad acting award for Transformers. If you ever have a chance to flip through the History of the Razzies Book do it. There are some no brainers, but I really don't agree with their picks for the most part. They like to pick the films that the most people saw so they get the most press. They are more interested in getting their name out on CNN than really picking the worst actors :rolleyes:

    Didn't think he was that bad in Transformers. Then again, I haven't watched any of the other movies he is being nominated for.
