Two Failed NewAgers: Our Great Idea For A Film Collaboration! (Either That Or Just Get 'Em Both Outta Here Before They Kill The Movie Industry)

M. Night Shyamalan is the most NewAge of all the NewAge directors, so you know NewAge and art don't mix when it's come to this:
M. Night Shyamalan may have received best director and screenplay Oscar nominations for the 1999 best picture nominee "The Sixth Sense," but more recently his films are being nominated for the Golden Raspberry -- Razzie -- Awards. His 2010 misfire, "The Last Airbender," makes him a threepeat offender in the Razzie world after 2006's "The Lady in the Water" and 2008's "The Happening."

His 3-D version of the popular animated TV series scored nine Razzie nominations Monday morning, including worst picture, director, remake, screenplay, worst screen couple/worst ensemble and a new Razzie category, worst eye-gouging misuse of 3-D.
Jesus - the guy even won in a whole new category! When are they just going to kick this loser to the curb?

The other NewAge name that stands out in the "Razzie" competition (and also in multiple categories) is Jennifer Aniston - nominated first and foremost as "Worst Actress" - A distinction that, obviously, neither consulting Ken Wilber, or increasing her number of yoga sessions (both of which probably take away from studying her craft) can help with.

Oh well. As artists, and anti-cultists, we're rooting for Shyamalan and Aniston - BIG TIME! The "winners" will be announced on Monday.
