Quelle horreur! 'The Shining' was not only snubbed, it was Razzed!

Now I'm really ticked off — we're talking Jack Nicholson kind of irked — that a classic like "The Shining" was not only snubbed in the Oscar best-picture race, but it was nominated for two 1980 Razzie Awards: worst actress (Shelley Duvall) and worst director (Stanley Kubrick!). Luckily, they "lost" to Brooke Shields ("The Blue Lagoon") and Robert Greenwald ("Xanadu"). Do you think that "Shining" deserved even to be considered for such a hatchet job?
