    Razzie infamously known for many strange (or undeserved) wins and nominations. Here’s my pick:

    Rebekah Turner and Mikaela Kranz, Worst Actress win for Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party

    2016 was the year where the Razzie goes full political. Awarding this shit Worst Picture and Director were deserving, but some random actress got recognized for a 1 minute performance (also we only see her back and silhoutte from the distance (Rebekah Turner) and some closeup of the actress playing Hillary) doesn’t make any sense.

    Glenn Close,Worst Supporting Actress NodHillbilly Elegy

    Majority of people agree that the movie was trash and director, screenplay nod were very deserving. But nominating the best part of the movie is too much. Glenn Close gives a fine performance, far from Razzie worthy (2020 is packed with horrible supp. Actress performances, and they choose her only to get a headline).

    Faye Dunaway, Worst Actress win, Mommie Dearest

    The best performance that ever winning a Razzie. A monumental and fully committed masterclass of what to do and shouldn’t do in acting. This performance deserved an Oscar because I don’t really remembers any lines or dialogue from Oscar Best Actress winners from the 80s, but this performance is still holds up to this day and people still celebrated and quoting it. Who remembers ‘You are my knight in a shining armor’ or any of Sally Field’s line in Places In The Heart apart from her ‘really like me’ speeches. Faye Dunaway SHOULD HAVE WON HER SECOND OSCAR FOR THIS, Barbara please…!

    The fact that Shelley Duvall was nominated for a Razzie for her amazing performance in The Shining still annoys me.

    They nominated Kubrick too, would you believe.

    Shelley Duvall was (intentionally) grating and annoying in The Shining so maybe that was why. Doesn’t mean she was bad, far from it.

    The Razzies have often had a weird thing against acclaimed horror movies, though in some cases their reputation grew later on. Examples include the ‘worst score’ nomination for The Thing (ridiculous), the worst picture nom and actress win for The Blair Witch Project (she was fine?!) and of course the recent nominations for mother!.

    i think Kubrick’s Worst Director nomination is more an ‘award’ for his infamously on-set difficulties and perfectionism.

    imagine gives all you had, get abused by directors and keep repeating the same frickin scene over and over again, and then some random awards nominating you for Worst Actress.

    When I was a lot younger (in the 90s), I felt like more people loved to bash on Shelley Duvall as being irritatingly bad in THE SHINING. It seemed sort of like a general consensus that I kept finding online and among anyone I heard discuss it.

    It wasn’t until I saw the film as a young teenager and I began learning more about the behind the scenes stories that I realized that Duvall was basically directed to be in that state.

    It also helped to see her performances in other films and you could tell she was a really good character actress, particularly 3 WOMEN.

    It has made me happy in the last 15 years or so to see Duvall’s performance be more positively re-evaluated.

    This is certainly a Razzie nomination that was undeserved, to say the least.

    And Kubrick, despite his treatment of Duvall, was certainly an example of them loving to namecheck a big name filmmaker.

    Even though I liked mother! personally, I understand why it got a Razzie nomination. What I don’t understand is why Jennifer Lawrence got a nomination?! She was great!

    FYC:

    Best Screenplay: Never Rarely Sometimes Always (Eliza Hitman)
    Best Actress: Sidney Flanigan ("Never Rarely Sometimes Always")

    Lawrence in Mother!, Duvall in The Shining and Close in Hillbilly Elegy are all overkills.

    Megan Fox gave her best performance in Jennifer’s Body.

    Also, Paris Hilton was absolutely fun in House of Wax.

    Seyfried did nothing offensive in Pan.

    This year alone we had three stupid noms in Supporting Actress: Glenn Close, Kristen Wiig and Maggie Q. The first got nominated only for headlines and the Oscar buzz, while the other two only got in for like, I don’t even know tbh. They really seem to hate Maggie for some reason. She even got shortlisted in lead for another movie. She was literally the only watchable part of that Fantasy Shit. And Glenn and Wiig were literally the most acclaimed or one of the most praised aspects of their movies. Glennie getting nominated when the rest of the cast, most notably Adams and Basso, didn’t even make the shortlist is beyond ridiculous.

    Kristen Wiig’s performance was one of the only parts of Wonder Woman 1984 that I actually thought wasn’t a complete mess lol.

    Worst Director – Stanley Kubrick – The Shining

    Yeah….

    I listened to an interview with the Razzie founder for the anniversary last year and he was extremely defensive about this nomination when they brought up nominations that haven’t aged well. The Razzie guy also randomly brought up Brian De Palma’s Worst Director nomination for Scarface himself, and went on and on about how he couldn’t understand a word Pacino was saying(?) Pretty wack.
