Razzie Award

Stars who have accepted the "honour"

Many quite distinguished actors, directors and producers have received the recognition of a Golden Raspberry. However, due to the insulting nature of the award, it is typically not accepted in person by its recipients. In fact, this has happened only a handful of times in the history of the awards:

  • 1988: Bill Cosby "won" three Razzie Awards for Worst Picture, Worst Actor and Worst Screenplay for Leonard Part 6, a botched spoof of spy flicks that Cosby himself had condemned on several talk shows. Cosby became the first person to personally accept his Razzies, which he did a few weeks after the actual ceremony on Fox's The Late Show. According to an interview with Cosby on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, Cosby had threatened to sue the Golden Raspberries if he didn't receive awards that were made of real gold. They complied, and he received 24-karat gold and Italian marble statues, at a cost of $27,000 - paid by the network.[citation needed] (The regular award consists of a fake raspberry atop a Super 8 film reel that's been spray-painted gold. The Golden Raspberry Awards Foundation estimates its value to be $4.97.[2])
  • 1993: Tom Selleck accepted his Razzie for Worst Supporting Actor for his performance as King Ferdinand of Spain in Christopher Columbus: The Discovery during an episode of The Chevy Chase Show.
  • 1996: Paul Verhoeven became the first to accept a Razzie in person at the awards ceremony when he accepted Worst Director for Showgirls.
  • 1998: Screenwriter Brian Helgeland became the first person to win a Razzie and an Oscar in the same year - in fact, on the same weekend. His Best Adapted Screenplay Academy Award was for L.A. Confidential, and it came the day after he "won" the Razzie for Worst Screenplay for Kevin Costner's The Postman. While Helgeland did not attend the Razzie ceremony, he did express a wish to get his dishonor and display it next to his Oscar to remind him of "the quixotic nature" of Hollywood. Soon after, he was indeed officially presented his Razzie at his offices on the Warner Bros. lot.
  • 2001: Tom Green accepted all five of his Razzie Awards, including Worst Picture, for Freddy Got Fingered. He declared "I want to say I didn't deserve this... dear god, I want to say that." He turned up in a white Cadillac, bringing his own length of cheap red carpet. Green's speech included a never-ending piece of music played on the harmonica, for which he eventually had to be dragged off stage by the organizers.
  • 2004: Ben Affleck, after winning Worst Actor for his work in Gigli, Daredevil and Paycheck, asked why he did not get his trophy. He was presented the Razzie live on Larry King Live a week later, which he promptly broke. The broken Razzie was sold on eBay for enough money to cover the hall rental for the next year's ceremonies.
  • 2005: Halle Berry surprised Hollywood by giving a mock breathless acceptance speech at the Razzie ceremony, clutching her Oscar (2002 Best Actress for Monster's Ball) in one hand and her Razzie in the other. Berry had won the award for worst actress for her performance in Catwoman, which also won in three other categories. Shortly after this incident, John Wilson released a statement to the press praising Halle Berry's other performances and stating that he looks forward to Berry giving other Oscar-worthy performances.

Criteria of nomination

Instead of judging on film quality, or lack thereof, Razzies are awarded largely based on hype. This is highlighted by several unexpected nominations and wins, such as George W. Bush being "awarded" worst actor in 2004 for appearing in the documentary Fahrenheit 9/11, despite not being an actor. In addition, the first two Star Wars prequels, both of which were considered by many as poor in comparison to the well-received original trilogy but still received "fresh" ratings from the website Rotten Tomatoes, were nominated for Worst Picture. The GRAF apparently addressed this in 2006, when it handed out four Razzies to Dirty Love, a film in which the official GRAF press release announcing the 2005 winners proclaimed as "...a little stinker that no one but [Razzie voters] even seem to know existed."
