Cynthia Nixon is celebrating her 51st birthday today. She began working in television and film in her early teens, and had her first big film role in The Manhattan Project. Her subsequent film appearances have included The Pelican Brief, Little Manhattan, The Babysitters, and last year as the poet Emily Dickinson in A Quiet Passion. On television, she has played two First Ladies of the US, Eleanor Roosevelt and Nancy Reagan, and won an Emmy (her second) for Outstanding Guest Actress for an appearance on Law and Order: SVU.
However, Nixon is best known for the role that brought her three Emmy nominations and her first Emmy win, Miranda Hobbes on Sex and the City.
The Golden Raspberries started off as an informal joke. Something for a publicist and his friends to do after the Oscars had ended. Over time, it has become and enduring and irreverent tradition. In theory, The Razzies poke fun at the worst movies of the year. But like any awards ceremony, the Razzies frequently make the wrong call. We’re going back and looking at the history of the Golden Raspberry Awards one year at a time.
The thirty-third annual Razzies nominated the movies of 2012. Marvel’s The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises were the top movies of the year. Argo won Best Picture, but Best Director went to Ang Lee for Life of Pi. Daniel Day-Lewis and Jennifer Lawrence were named Best Actor and Best Actress. The Razzies had a little extra sparkle this year thanks to all the vampires.
