The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation announced the ‘winners’ for the 34rd Annual Razzie Awards last night. You can check out the announcement below:
The results are in, the envelopes have been opened, and the “winners” of the 34th Awards have been unveiled in ceremonies held at Hollywood’s coolest new venue just down the street from Sunday night’s Oscars IgnitedSpaces. The hour long show handed out at least one statuette to four of the five Worst Picture nominees, but Adam Sandler and his unfunny follow up Grown Ups 2 went home empty-handed.
Taking three of the top awards was the star-studded, snicker-free sketch comedy Movie 43, which “won” for Worst Screenplay (written by at least 19 people), Worst Director (“credited” to 13 people), and Worst Picture. 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.
