Before Jennifer Lawrence got anywhere near an Academy Award surface she can trip on or up, another, far more humiliating walk of shame faced the award “winners” at The Golden Raspberry Awards.
The Razzies honour the very worst in Hollywood filmmaking and this year the competition was stiff—so much so that two movies tied for the top award: Worst Movie of 2015. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves there are other important winners to acknowledge first.
Like Worst Actor.
Even though Adam Sandler had two separate movies, Pixels and The Cobbler, supporting the idea that he is this year’s worst actor (and a CV that indicates he may indeed be one of the most terrible stars to ever grace the screen), Jamie Dornan ended up taking the trophy for his turn in Fifty Shades of Grey. Look for that movie title again. It was one of this year’s Razzie faves.
As she readily demonstrated during the press tour for their movie, 2015’s Worst Actress really feels Dornan’s pain. She’s his co-star Dakota Johnson. Check out their sizzling chemistry:
Bet you knew they took home Worst Screen Combo without us having to tell you. It’s weird when the movie marketed as one of the sexiest ever made makes you want to become a never nude, no?
Supporting actors don’t escape the Razzies—their effort (or lack of it) is recognized, too. In a shocking upset Chevy Chase was robbed despite turning in performances in not one but two movies we wish we could Eternal Sunshine from our memories. Alas, voters passed over Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and the Vacation reboot for the embarrassment that was Eddie Redmayne’s involvement in Jupiter Ascending.
The Razzies’ Worst Supporting Actress selection however, is one we can get behind: it’s Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting for Alvin & The Chipmunks: Road Chip and The Wedding Ringer. Hands up if you saw either of those movies. Anyone? Hello?
The Razzies also hand out an award for worst remake. Seems a bit redundant but in case you were curious about who won this race to the bottom, it was Fantastic Four. The movie’s director Josh Trank was also honoured at the ceremony, beating out Tom Six, a filmmaker whose Human Centipede franchise has actually made the world a worse place.
And that brings us to the big winner. Or the film that took home the Razzies’ top award, anyway. So insert ironic drumroll here: the Worst Movie of 2015 was Fantastic Four… but it was also Fifty Shades of Grey!
In the eyes of the Golden Raspberry Academy, the two very different movies were tied for terribleness. A custody agreement for the statuette is still being worked out between the films’ production teams.
