Before the best in Hollywood are honored at the Oscars, the spotlight is on some of the film industry’s most panned productions.
“Holmes & Watson,” Melissa McCarthy and even President Trump were among those who received dubious honors at the Razzie Awards, meant to commemorate the worst films and performances of the year.
The top, ahem, prize went to “Holmes & Watson” — the detective comedy starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly — as it was named worst picture during Friday night’s announcement.
The movie took home four awards in total, including Reilly receiving worst supporting actor and Etan Cohen being named worst director.
Trump, meanwhile, was named worst actor for appearing as himself in “Fahrenheit 11/9,” a Michael Moore-directed documentary covering the 2016 election and Trump’s time in office. The award for worst screen combo at the ceremony, meanwhile, was given to “Donald Trump & his self-perpetuating pettiness,” while Kellyanne Conway was named worst supporting actress for the same film.
McCarthy was awarded worst actress for her performances in two movies: “The Happytime Murders” and “Life of the Party.” She did, however, win the “redeemer award” for her praised performance in “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” — a role that earned her a Best Actress nomination st Sunday’s Academy Awards.
“Fifty Shades Freed,” meanwhile, won worst screenplay.
