It’s been nearly three decades since past Razzie Award winner Donald Trump competed at Hollywood’s kudos for Worst of the Year, but now he has two new chances for more glory. When Razzie nominations were announced today, Trump landed bids for Worst Actor and Worst Screen Combo alongside “his self-perpetuating pettiness,” according to Razzies chief John Wilson. Trump’s real-life partner Melania nabbed a nomination for Worst Supporting Actress. Both are honored for portraying themselves in Dinesh D’Souza‘s “Death of a Nation” and Michael Moore‘s “Fahrenheit 11/9.”
In the battle over Worst Actor of the Year, Trump competes against Johnny Depp (voice in “Sherlock Gnomes”), Will Ferrell (“Holmes & Watson”), John Travolta (“Gotti”) and Bruce Willis (“Death Wish”).
Melania’s rivals are Kellyanne Conway (“Fahrenheit 11/9”), Marcia Gay Harden (“Fifty Shades Freed”), Kelly Preston (“Gotti”) and Jaz Sinclair (“Slender Man”).
In 1991, Donald Trump won Worst Supporting Actor for “Ghosts Can’t Do It,” but lost a second award. Worst New Star went to Sofia Coppola after her widely ridiculed performance in her dad’s “The Godfather: Part III.”
