'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Does Jennifer Aniston deserve Razzie nods?

What could Jennifer Aniston soon have in common with Halle Berry and Sandra Bullock? She could win a worst actress Razzie Award – or two!

Jen just got nominated for her roles in “The Bounty Hunter” and “The Switch.” What do you think? Does Jen deserve the Razzie(s)? Post your thoughts below!

Also, Oprah Winfrey reveals a shocking family secret today – she’s got a half-sister. Watching Oprah’s revelation with such candor and emotion was truly compelling. We’re asking on "Showbiz Tonight" today – should Oprah have gone public with this?

Other provocative stories we’ve got on the show…

"Showbiz" special report: Does winning a Golden Globe mean a better (or worse) chance of snagging an Oscar?

Plus, more advertisers bail on MTV’s “Skins.” Will the series, that some claim is child porn, be canceled?

And Brooke Anderson talks exclusively to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s younger sister – who’s creating big buzz at the Sundance Film Festival. (Who knew they had a younger sister?!)

    Aniston is a great actress. Just because the movies may not always be the greatest doesn't mean she didn't perform well in them. She didn't write the scripts...And more importantly, she seems like a really kind, genuine person.

    Very difficult acting in a comedy. It's a lot easier to act in the
    crazy – spy killer type roles. Film critic Mick LaSalle of the Sf Chronicle
    thinks she's a fine actress who get's too little recognition. JP

    Leave it to the aniston fans to drag angelina jolie's name while they're idol is mentioned in a bad light. Very classy aniston fans!

    Yes she deserves it. I think she is a terrible actress and if she hadn't been married to Brad Pitt she would never have gotten the roles that she has had.

    I think she is capable of so much more given the role just wish they would offer her better roles. The Bounty Hunter was a disappointment, the story was kind of lame, I don't think they took advantage of the chemistry between the two. Still I love her movies and will go see them. I also agree with siska on the why not pick on The Tourist it bombed and still got nominated for comedy, I don't think they inteded it to be a comedy and not even Johnny Depp could save it. Angelina gets paid good $$ and sometime she can't even deliver the goods and her movies still bomb. A lot of actresses have hits and misses and Rupert Everett he is just a sour puss he knew that by picking on Jen he would get press and he is not THAT great of an actor if he was he would have work don't blame it on anyone or use the "gay" card.

      I guess you didn't watch The Tourist...It's a different kind of acting from Johnny and Angelina, and it did not bombed! Look at the reviews from most who had watched. If you are not bias about the actress ... you would quite definitely enjoy the movie. It shows what both lead actors can bring into the acting arena – other than just being a pirate or a action heroine. Nice relaxing comedy with a twist! On the other hand Jennifer ...hmm.. she has been acting the same role over and over again, from television to the big screen. Ok the other is to expose herself on the magazines, and talks endlessly about the keep fit regime. Give her a couple of babies (if she can handle them) and see what happens ... maybe she would throw in 2-4 nannies. What else can i say ... !!?

      The Tourist, The tourist every actor and actress have a movie that didn't do so well, The Tourist made 26 million of it's opening week-end this pass week the number one movie made 20 million and it was a hit not a miss, the problem Angelina Jolie is a big box office draw and people expect her movie to always make tons of money. Jennifer Aniston makes bomb after bomb she is not a big screen actress, and I hope she gets her just deserts and take home her big fat razzie and leave big screen acting to the pros like Mr and Mrs Brad Pitt.

    I think she should attend it..and be cool about..its all about people opinion..I always like her acting..she can made me laugh and cry..(remember HJNIU and Marley and Me..even The switch)..thats way me and the rest of her fans still pay to see her movie..and even the haters still care about her..they keep looking and commented on her news..
    Are Razzie award pick the worst director too? because a bad or good movie base on the director mostly.(and storyline)..like how sandra can pick Oscar for blind side but got Razzie for All about Steve..
    BTW why keep pick on her...she never think herself as a oscar winning or serious actress..its her genre..and she is grateful to still working in the HW even when she is over 40...and.why not picking on The Tourist?? which both Oscar nominated director/actress in it.

    Jennifer Aniston is a very talented actress and people they give her a Razzie award for "The Switch", they have never seen this film. She and Jason Bateman and all the other actors were great...a wonderful touching and reflective movie.

    Jennifer deserves this award. Imagine that, for all these years of acting plus with acting coach in tow the only time she took a risk was by not wearing a mascara and that is called acting. They should give Jennifer a Razzie award for every movie she's in. Rupert E. was absolutely right for saying that Jennifer sucks in acting. Good luck Jen! hopefully you will win this one. Just imagine it that it's an Oscar.

    She's mediocre actor at best...and I don't think she is ugly...I just dont think she's pretty either...eh I guess not my cup of tea

    I don't think she deserves this award but she does need to choose new/different roles. At least will give her credit for trying somethin new. She does bring in the money for the studios though. I guess there's more people out there that will still go see her movies even if it's the same role. She looks awesome for her age!

    I think she can do better. She has many fans that will see whatever she makes so that is why the studios give her more parts. Follow the money.

    Aniston should win this one she just can't act and it's not the parts she get's . It's HER.

    Oh I don't think she's the worse; Jessica Alba or Kate Hudson should take this razzie prize.

    Why isn't anyone dogging out Gerald Butler or Jessica Alba who was nominated for 4 films? People cannot stand to see a modest looking, over forty women who is living her life the way she wants to and making plenty of money doing so.

    As long as she bring in the money she will continue to make movies. Somebody must like her movies, according to boxofficemojo she have brought in over 1.02 billion in revenue. Don't hate, in hollywood it's all about the dough.

    What a HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HACKtress jennifer aniston is! I totally agree with Rupert Everett and Joan Collins,...the Movie studios keep giving her movies ,though she's BORING, REDUNDANT, and has a face for TV!..

    I reeeally hope she wins this. Perhaps she's face reality, and put the movie-viewing public out of our misery!

      You mean, as opposed to someone whose acting was compared to a "embalmed mannequin"? Funny how "The Tourist", which was deemed as the worst film of the year wasn't voted as a razzie, even though both entertainers were said to have been sleeping through filming, and was panned as a comedy when it was supposed to be an action thriller.

    I agree with Kim. I absolutely love Jennifer in "Friends" however her movies are getting too predictable and yes her roles stink... She can do so much better. Perhaps she needs some time off the screen and then make a huge come back.

      She should shock everyone and do some intense drama or mystery. I'd love to see her in something like "No Country for Old Men". Or even better, a sci fi. I can see her being in "Sunshine".

    I loved her on friends, but I have to say.....her movies are unmemorable to say the least. She has the potential to be a good actress, but someone else needs to pick the roles for her.

    She should receive a lifetime Razzie award. Or better yet, just give her one each time her horrible movies open and save having to go through a ceremony.

    she should have been nominated a long time ago...and i strongly agree with Rupert Everett's opinion on her.

    Jennifer Aniston is a vain actress, one note and only takes on insipid roles. I agree with the British actor, Rupert Everett, why does she still get lead roles when all her movies are bombs, unwatchable bombs?

      So her movies as being in the top 5 of actresses making a profit for the studios means her movies are bombs? Sorry, but Box Office Mojo doesn't mean crap, it's how much money the movies makes back in returns that mean something but since you apparently don't know how to add, you wouldn't be aware of this.
