By Hampus Eckerman: The Golden Turkey Awards. The Golden Raspberry Award. Awards given to the worst of the worst movies. So this will be The Worst Movie Golden Bracket.
This is about chosing the worst movie ever made. A bad movie is not a boring movie. It is a movie that creates feelings. Astonishment that the movie could ever be made. Fascination over who could create it. Anger over those who participated in it. Enthusiasm over the brilliance needed to make something so bad.
A truly bad movie is the kind where you continue to watch in the same way as at an oncoming train crash.

The bracket is done in the same way as previous movie brackets. These are the steps of the nomination phase before the brackets begin.
STEP 1: Nomination Phase
I have created a short list of movies considered to be the worst ever made. In the comment section, you will write movies you think should be added to the list. Also write if you want to nominate a movie already listed.
STEP 2: The Finalizing Phase
I will compile all movies mentioned in a separate post. There you will have the possibility to add your nominations to the movies listed (and only those listed at this stage).
STEP 3: The Final List
I will count all nominations and decide which movies has made into the brackets. The list will be published in a separate post. And after that the brackets will begin.
