The Golden Raspberry Awards, affectionately known as the Razzies, are always bestowed the night before the Academy Awards. This year’s award ceremony was held last night at Ignited Spaces in Hollywood. The Worst Picture Razzie went to Movie 43, a star-studded flop that also won the awards for Worst Director and Worst Screenplay. Movie 43 had 13 directors and 19 writers. That’s a lot of statuettes.
Tying with 43, and also "winning" 3 gold spray-painted trophies, was the Will and Jaden Smith sci-fi fiasco After Earth. Dad Will Smith took Worst Supporting Actor, son Jaden was named Worst Lead Actor, and the combination of father & son, described in the ceremony as being "stranded on Planet Nepotism", took the award for Worst Screen Combo.
Rounding out the names read when the envelopes were torn were: Tyler Perry (in drag) as Worst Actress for his 8th time playing the cross-dressing character in A Madea Christmas; Kim Kardashian in Tyler Perry's Temptation as Worst Supporting Actress; and the year's biggest box office bomb, a $250 million "reboot" of The Lone Ranger (on which Disney took a $200 million tax write off) which was chosen as Worst Remake/Rip-Off or Sequel.
The winners and all the nominees can be found at the Razzies official website.
