In under 48 hours, this year’s Oscars will be announced. Before that, there are some other gongs to be handed out with the 39th annual Golden Raspberry Awards having been announced celebrating the worst in cinema for the year.
“Holmes & Watson,” the Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly-led comedy savaged by the critics, walked away with the top prize of ‘Worst Picture,’ beating out the likes of “Gotti,” “Winchester,” “Robin Hood” and “The Happytime Murders” for the honor.
The film also took three other awards including ‘Worst Remake, Ripoff or Sequel,’ a ‘Worst Director’ for Etan Coen, and ‘Worst Supporting Actor’ for John C. Reilly.
Donald Trump was a double winner, taking ‘Worst Actor’ for “Death of a Nation” and “Fahrenheit 11/9” along with ‘Worst Screen Combo’ for ‘Donald J. Trump and his self-perpetuating pettiness’ for the same films. Kellyanne Conway as herself won for ‘Worst Supporting Actress’ for “Fahrenheit 11/9”.
Melissa McCarthy won ‘Worst Actress’ for her “The Happytime Murders” and “Life of the Party” work, while “Fifty Shades Freed” took the ‘Worst Screenplay’.
The Razzies come ahead of the 2019 Oscars which will be awarded Sunday, February 24th on ABC.
