    Razzies Move to April Fool's Day - They spoof the Oscars

    The always fun Razzies are moving to April!

    Organizers of the Razzies have changed the schedule for their nominations and prize ceremonies. The spoof the Academy Awards and reward the year's worst films and are super duper fun.

    The Razzies used to announce their own contenders the night before the Oscar nominations, which are coming Tuesday. But things are a'changing.

    Razzies founder John Wilson announced that nominations this season will be released Feb. 25, the eve of the Oscar ceremony. Winners of the Razzies will be announced on April 1.

    Wilson says Razzies organizers have long wanted to have their awards coincide with April Fool's Day. It'll give 600 Razzies voters "additional time to see the dreck they will eventually nominate." What a good reason to bump things!

    Do you follow the Razzies?
