Creator of the Golden Raspberry Awards
Head of the Golden Raspberry Awards Foundation
Why he might be annoying
His name sounds way too generic.
He admitted that he was so obsessed with the Oscars, he would play hooky in school to sit in the bleachers for the red carpet arrivals (which sounds ironic for someone who now constantly mocks the awards).
The idea for the Razzies was first conceived as a pot luck dinner party held on the same evening as the Academy Awards.
Many people in the cinematic world despise him for 'publicly humiliation' as a result of the awards.
Eventually he moved 'Razzie night' to the night before the Oscar presentation so that the awards would get more press time.
The Razzie website credits him as 'Ye Head Raspberry.'
Why he might not be annoying
He graduated UCLA.
Ironically, he has worked for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to help with promotion for the Oscars.
He is also a sponsor for Film Independent's Spirit Awards and the Los Angeles Film Festival.
In honor of the 25th anniversary of the awards, he wrote a book chronicling the awards history and including his list of the '100 Worst Movies Ever Made.'
