The Razzies are generally awful but they always come through with the Worst Screen Couple category. Never more so than the second Blonde nomination here. pic.twitter.com/vLBjDRXyAQ

Razzies suck and are not worth giving any serious thought. Nowhere is their uselessness more clear than the annual Worst Screen Couple award, where the most creative minds of the Razzies attempt some gut-busting zingers. pic.twitter.com/FDQAaopaqP
