The Golden Raspberry Awards – which must have, at one point, been an enjoyable thing to someone, somewhere – are back, and the organization has once again chosen the most obvious and frankly boring choice for its top prize. Director Tom Hooper‘s Cats was the big “winner” of the night, taking home a total of six Razzies, including the Worst Picture of the year prize. Eddie Murphy also won a Razzie – but his win was actually a positive thing. Read on for the full list of winners below.Razzie Awards 2020 Winners

The Razzie Redeemer Award seems strangely out of character for this awards show because of how it honors positivity instead of wallowing in the cinematic muck of each year, but since Murphy didn’t earn an Oscar nomination for his work in Dolemite, I’m...
In the raging seas of Peak TV, when more than 530 scripted comedies and dramas aired last year, the Hulu series Shrill was a pleasant surprise. Saturday Night Live star Aidy Bryant brought a relatable, messy energy to her role as Annie, an overweight writer who embraces her appearance and whose creativity begins to spark when she publishes an essay against her boss’s will. The second season is coming to Hulu in just a few days, and the latest trailer shows how Annie is dealing trying to take control of her life, both personally and professionally. Check it out below.Shrill Season 2 Trailer
This trailer makes it seem like Annie’s roommate Fran Lolly Adefope is getting a bit more to do this season, which I’m all for; the season one conflicts between Fran and Annie mostly centered on Annie’s loser boyfriend Ryan Luka Jones, so I’m glad to see Fran as the focal point of a storyline involving her own family instead of just becoming a sounding board for Annie’s evolving issues.
On the comedy front, there’s nothing here that made me laugh out loud – but there weren’t too many of those moments in season one, either. I’d say Shrill is more of a dramedy than a straight-up comedy, with Annie’s interactions with her job, family played by Julia Sweeney and Daniel Stern, and romantic partners serving as the pillars which hold the series up. The first season is an easy watch: it doesn’t demand too much of your time, and it presents some relatable conundrums for people in their 30s. Plus, it touches on issues that you don’t often see addressed head-on in TV shows like this. The first season left me feeling excited about the show’s future – now we just have to see if the show can build on its potential or if it hits a sophomore slump.
Here’s the show’s official synopsis:
From Executive Producers Lorne Michaels and Elizabeth Banks comes the second season of Shrill, a comedy series starring Aidy Bryant Saturday Night Live as Annie, a young woman who wants to change her life — but at what cost? Having found a new sense of self confidence and control, Annie finds that the life she’s been chasing with Ryan, her friends, her family and her own career aren’t quite what she imagined. She’s got the confidence. Now what is she going to do with it?

Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Series: I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson
Where You Can Stream It: Netflix
The Pitch: Former Saturday Night Live featured player and Comedy Central’s Detroiters creator and co-star Tim Robinson teams up with fellow SNL writer and his Detroiters co-creator Zack Kanin to deliver a series of offbeat comedy sketches mostly featuring characters that need to desperately leave, would be wise to leave, or are being implored to leave a variety of awkward, confrontational and goofy situations.
Why It’s Essential Viewing: Saturday Night Live is still largely considered the gold standard for sketch comedy, even if you always hear someone saying that the current cast isn’t as funny as the previous generation, which has happened with every new roster of players since the beginning of the show. But that doesn’t mean SNL is the only place to find great sketch comedy. In fact, sometimes the style of the series doesn’t lend itself well to certain comedians’ sensibilities. Such is the case with Tim Robinson. But that’s not always a bad thing.
During his single-season tenure as a featured player of Saturday Night Live, Tim Robinson appeared in a handful of memorable sketches but never really found firm footing as a cast member. But what you might not know is that Robinson stayed on the show as a writer for another three years afterwards. That’s because he’s truly a great sketch comedy writer, and I Think You Should Leave shows the comedy of Tim Robinson at its absolute best.
I Think You Should Leave basically feels like a collection of pre-recorded “10-to-1” sketches from SNL, the kind of weird sketches that were put in the timeslot that was typically 10 minutes left until the show ended at 1:00 A.M., around the time people started tuning out. These sketches are typically much weirder and riskier than the rest of the SNL sketch line-up, and when they land, the payoff can be massive. And most of the sketches in I Think You Should Leave are gut-bustingly hilarious.
Tim Robinson is a master at overdoing it, but in a truly commendable and hilarious fashion. Whether it’s peak awkwardness, unnecessary rage, being severely inconvenienced by something trivial, unconvincingly trying to avoid being blamed for driving a car through a shop front, or getting wildly specific about legal advice, Robinson proves to be a master sketch comedian with a unique comedic perspective. But he’s not the only one who gets to have fun.
