To date, there have been eleven instances where an actor/actress was nominated for an Oscar AND a Razzie in the same awards season. Out of those eleven only one, Sandra Bullock, managed to win the Oscar despite the Razzie nod. The remaining ten are:
- 1982: James Coco nominated for Best Supporting Actor AND Worst Supporting Actor for Only When I Laugh
- 1983: Amy Irving nominated for Best Supporting Actress AND Worst Supporting Actress for Yentl
- 1993: Jack Nicholson nominated for Best Supporting Actor for A Few Good Men; nominated for Worst Actor for Hoffa and Man Trouble
- 1995: Uma Thurman nominated for Best Supporting Actress for Pulp Fiction; nominated for Worst Actress for Even Cowgirls Get the Blues
- 2003: Christopher Walken nominated for Best Supporting Actor for Catch Me If You Can; nominated for Worst Supporting Actor for The Country Bears
- 2004: Alec Baldwin nominated for Best Supporting Actor for The Cooler; nominated for Worst Supporting Actor for The Cat in the Hat
- 2016: Rooney Mara nominated for Best Supporting Actress for Carol; nominated for Worst Supporting Actress for Pan
- 2016: Eddie Redmayne nominated for Best Actor for The Danish Girl; won Worst Supporting Actor for Jupiter Ascending
- 2019: Melissa McCarthy nominated for Best Actress for Can You Ever Forgive Me?; won Worst Actress for The Happytime Murders and Life of the Party
- 2021: Glenn Close nominated for Best Supporting Actress AND Worst Supporting Actress for Hillbilly Elegy
Out of those ten, how many do you think could’ve or would’ve won the Oscar had they not been nominated for a Razzie in the same awards season?December 29, 2022 at 10:12 pm #1205213620
None. It just wasn’t their time

I’ve only really been following the oscars since like 2011 so those are the only ones I can speak to, but I definitely remember there being SOME chatter that Eddie Redmayne might be able to pull a Tom Hanks and win two in a row. I wouldn’t quiet say he was derailed because he was never the frontrunner or anything, but there definitely was a moment when some people thought he might be able to do it, and after Jupiter Ascending came out he was mocked so roundly that it definitely helped shut down those murmurs quickly.
As far as the other ones I remember, Mara never really stood a chance for Carol anyway, and Pan was such a nonentity that I don’t think anyone even really talked about her Razzie nom. Same with McCarthy’s year, she never really stood a chance to win the oscar and no one really cared about her bad movies.
Close, I wouldn’t specifically say her razzie nom cost her anything, but more the fact that Hillbilly Elegy got bad enough reviews to be a razzie contender certainly did. Right after she got so close for The Wife I think if the movie had been even SLIGHTLY better received, she probably would’ve taken the win.
Murphy definitely MIGHT have lost anyway (Arkin was on his 3rd nomination, first in 40 years with no win, and LMS was a BP nominee) but Norbit probably did cost him the oscar.December 30, 2022 at 9:50 am #1205214252
Poor Eddie MurphyDecember 30, 2022 at 10:30 am #1205214296
Glenn is an ICON for getting that polarizing nomination with the role of Hillbilly Granny. And then dancing at the ceremony. Your faves could never.December 30, 2022 at 11:12 am #1205214361
No, because none of those people were actually in contention for the win.December 30, 2022 at 3:09 pm #1205214573
Aren’t the Razzies generally announced the day before or after Oscar nominations? I can’t see them having much influence…
Zar Amir Ebrahimi - Holy Spider (Best Actress)
Ana de Armas, Julianne Nicholson - Blonde (Best Actress, Supporting Actress)
Samantha Morton - She Said (Best Supporting Actress)
Kerry Condon - The Banshees of Inisherin (Best Supporting Actress)December 30, 2022 at 4:40 pm #1205214629
Only one of these – Walken – could truly be considered win-competitive, having won both industry precursors. But I very much doubt a concurrent Razzie nomination had anything to do with his loss.January 2, 2023 at 12:15 pm #1205218597
I forgot about Murphy and Jackman. I apologize for excluding them.January 2, 2023 at 4:34 pm #1205218792
Hugh Jackman is Great at Musicals. He has a Great Voice for Musicals. But Oscars don’t love musicals anymore. I suppose Hugh Jackman would have been more successful in the 1950s or 1960sNot now
