The 27th annual Golden Raspberry Awards, or Razzies, were held at the Ivar Theatre in Hollywood on February 24, 2007 to recognize the worst the movie industry had to offer in 2006.
The nominations were announced on January 22, 2007. Basic Instinct 2 (which was dubbed by the ceremony as "Basically, It Stinks, Too") and Little Man both received the most nominations with seven.
As has been the tradition, the nominations were announced one day prior to the Academy Awards nominations, with the award show scheduled one day prior to the Academy Awards ceremony.
In recent years, the organizers have added awards that are for a single year only. Last year's Most Tiresome Tabloid Targets category was replaced this year with Worst Excuse for Family Entertainment, which "salutes the dearth of quality G and PG-rated movie fare in 2006."
Also, this year the category Worst Remake or Sequel was split off into two separate categories: Worst Prequel or Sequel and Worst Remake or Rip-off.
For the first time, the awards program was broadcast over the Internet on MSNBC.com, via cell phone. In an experimental live webcast, (referred to as "The Cell-E-Cast"), the show was shot on a series of cell phones and transmitted live by NBC Media Productions.
