Recycled Toxic Razzie® Waste Dominates 38th Annual Golden Raspberry “Winners”
Emoji Movie, Tom Cruise, Tyler Perry and
Fifty Shades Darker Take Top $4.97 Trophies
Hollywood’s recycled trash heap attained an all-time high in 2017, and this toxic-level lack of originality was blatantly obvious once “winners” were selected for this year’s 38th Annual Golden Raspberry (Razzie®) Awards.
Leading this year’s list of movie-misfires is the emoticon-based, talking poop opus The Emoji Movie, the first animated feature ever to win Worst Picture. Emoji also took Screenplay, Director and Screen Combo (Any Two Obnoxious Emojis). The $4.97 trophies for “acting” went to Tom Cruise as Worst Actor for his widely-panned remake of The Mummy, Tyler Perry as Worst Actress for his 10th appearance as his popular drag character Medea in BOO 2 :A Medea Halloween, former Oscar winner Kim Basinger as Supporting Actress in Fifty Shades Darker, and Mel Gibson as Worst Supporting Actor for his “comic” turn in Daddy’s Home 2. A complete list of this year’s “winners” is included with this press release, and is also available at razzies.com.
Voting Razzie Members (over 1,000 from every US State except Montana and 26 foreign countries) cast their ballots online, selecting the very worst in nine categories. A new category, The Razzie Contender So Rotten You Loved It, was conceived in partnership with Rotten Tomatoes and voted on their site. Tens of thousands of votes were cast, and the overwhelming choice was Baywatch. The video announcing “Winners” of this year’s tackiest Tinsel Town trophy (linked above) will be released at 12:01am/PST, Saturday, March 3 – the now traditional day before the 90th Annual Giving Out of the Little Gold Naked Men.
