Film - The Razzies Lock-Down Edition

With the world heading for lock-down, we all want to find great films to watch. The Golden Raspberry winners have been announced so you know what NOT to look for!...

Press Release

On March 14th, the Razzies had planned a really humongous show – complete with an opening parody number, sketches, “Celebrity Presenters” and The Whole Balla Wax – eventually to be beamed out to the entire world. But due to unforeseen circumstances – otherwise known as the Corona-Virus – they instead brought the public a bit more intimate video, suitable for viewing by any audience currently in lock-down mode.

Volunteering to be the caboose on the 2020 Awards Season trophy train, The Golden Raspberry Awards have just revealed their 40th Annual Razzies “winners” in a video version speaking to the current worldwide health crisis we're all dealing with.

Topping the “winners” list was 2019’s most nominated title, Cats, which ended up with six awards in its litterbox: Worst Picture, Supporting Actor (James Corden) and Supporting Actress (Rebel Wilson) Screen Combo (Any Two Half-Feline/Half Human Hairballs) Worst Screenplay and Worst Director (Tom Hooper), The only other multiple Razzie “winner” was Rambo: Last Blood, which beat up the competition to grab Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel and a special category brought back for 2019, Worst reckless Disregard for Human Life and Public Property. Top acting ACK-olades went to John Travolta in two critically filleted films, THE FANATIC and TRADING PAINT (which scored a literal “Zero” approval rating at Rotten Tomatoes) as Worst Actor, and Hilary Duff in the graphically violent (and dramatically specious) Haunting of Sharon Tate for Worst Actress. This year’s Razzie Redeemer statuette (honoring a past Razzie recipient who’s gone on to do better work) went to Eddie Murphy for Dolemite Is My Name.

But you can see all that in the video...
