Razzie outrages: 'Yogi Bear' and 'Jackass 3D' got snubbed!

Yogi bear razzie nominations newsYogi may be smarter than the average bear and his namesake flick beloved by moviegoers ($89 million at the U.S. box office), but "Yogi Bear" got skunked by the Razzies.

"Yogi Bear" was certainly worthy of the ridicule, according to some critics. USA Today blasted it, saying, "'Yogi Bear' is a big boo-boo," and the Chicago Tribune harrumphed, "'Yogi Bear' gives cheap hackwork a bad name. Which is a shame, because hackwork made this industry."

But "Yogi Bear" is among the many surprising omissions on the list of Razzie nominations. There are so many shockeroos ("Little Fockers" and "Jonah Hex" aren't up for worst picture! Where's "Jackass 3D"?) that we think it's best to break them down this way. Below is the short list of contenders sent to voters. Their choices for nominations are marked by bullets.
