Dwayne Johnson was clearly amused by the new category for a Razzie for 'Baywatch,' the Special Rotten Tomatoes Award: The Razzie Nominee So Bad You Loved It!
Films about King Kong have a chequered history – for every great Ray Harryhausen stop-motion battle, there’s a cheesy cash-in featuring the mega-monkey’s offspring. Kong survives the fall from the Empire State Building, is fitted with an artificial heart – yes, really – then falls in love with a Lady Kong and has a kid with her.
It’s the day before the Oscars, and that can only mean one thing: the 2017 Golden Raspberry Award ‘winners’ have been announced. The critically mauled DC movie took home four Razzies in total: Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel, Worst Supporting Actor for Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Worst Screenplay for Chris Terrio and David Goyer (the former having won an Oscar in 2012 for ‘Argo’), and Worst Screen Combo for the two leading men Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill.
One day before Hollywood honors the best films of 2016 by unveiling the Oscar nominations, the Razzies have revealed its contenders for the year’s worst.
Yes, the annual Golden Raspberry Awards, AKA the Razzies - a sarcastic response to the Oscars, ‘celebrating’ the worst films of the year - were hosted in Hollywood last night, and two major films dominated the evening. The title of worst film was jointly awarded to erotic blockbuster ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ and botched superhero reboot ‘Fantastic Four,’ and the bulk of the awards were carved up between the two of them. ‘Fifty Shades’ actors Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson were named Worst Actor and Worst Actress respectively, whilst Worst Director was given to ‘Fantastic Four’s Josh Trank.
