We all know of the Golden Raspberries and the prestigious honor of being called terrible and the worst.

Now, we have the Soily Awards!

The Soily Awards not only highlight the worst of the worst of 2011's cinematic dump, but they also highlight the movies that thought were incredibly pretentious and pompous.

The Sollies were created by Movieline and will be given out on March 23rd. So who are the lucky nominees?!

We'll give you a hint: It does not look good for Russell Brand, Taylor Lautner, and Transfomers.

CLICK the jump to check out the full list of nominees and the award description below!

  1. 1

    Why isn't 'Melancholia' in there? The most pretentious piece of shit movie in 2011.



  2. 2

    How does Glenn Close get nominated for worst actress for the same film she got nominated for Best Actress at the OSCARS with? These awards immediately lost any credibility with that alone…



  3. 3

    what a disgusting names. At least rasberry is cute and you can look over they are being jerks but this is just rude.
