Film critic David Edelstein wonders on the Vulture blog why "Oscar bait" movies can't be nominated for Razzies, which are awarded to the worst performances and films in Hollywood. Calling for nominations for performances such as Meryl Streep's in August: Osage County and the presidents of Lee Daniels' The Butler, Edelstein says, "I know such nominations would royally piss some people off, but what's the point of the Razzies if not to give offense?"
