First awarded 1981
The award usually takes the form of a plastic raspberry and roll of film spray-painted gold and mounted on a plastic base — nominally valued at US$4.89.
Nomination and selection are performed by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation (G.R.A.F.), an indiscriminate group of voters who pay between $25 and $250 a year for membership. The Foundation is currently made up of approximately 750 members.
The Official Categories of the Razzies are:
Worst Supporting Actor
Worst Supporting Actress
Worst Screen Couple (awarded since 1994)
Worst Prequel or Sequel
Worst Remake or Rip-off
(the above two are relatively new; originally the award was "Worst Remake or Sequel")
Worst New Star (This category is now rarely awarded.)
Worst Original Song (This category is now rarely awarded.)
Other types of awards
Worst Career Achievement Award
This award has been given only five times, in 1981, 1983, 1985, 1987, and 2009 to Ronald Reagan, Linda Blair, Irwin Allen, "Bruce the Rubber Shark" from Jaws and director Uwe Boll who received his for his achievement as "Germany's answer to Ed Wood".
This is a special award given by Razzie Award Governor John Wilson to an individual whose achievements are not covered by the Razzie's other categories. It was awarded in 2003 to Travis Payne for "Distinguished Under-Achievement in Choreography" in the film From Justin to Kelly.
Stars who have accepted the award
Many actors, directors, and producers have been awarded a Golden Raspberry. In a few cases, some of the winners have accepted their award in person, although only three have done so at the award ceremony itself - Paul Verhoeven, Tom Green and Halle Berry.
1987: 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 arranged for the Fox network to reproduce the Razzies in gold and Italian marble, at a cost of $27,500, and accepted them on The Late Show.
1992: 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.
1995: Director Paul Verhoeven became the first winner to actually show up at the Razzie ceremony, when he personally accepted his award for Worst Director for the film Showgirls. He also accepted the Worst Picture Award for the movie.
1997: Screenwriter Brian Helgeland became the first person to win a Razzie and an Oscar in the same year. He won the Best Adapted Screenplay Academy Award for L.A. Confidential and the Razzie for Worst Screenplay for Kevin Costner's The Postman. He did not attend the Razzie ceremony, but wanted to have the Razzie to display it next to his Oscar to remind him of "the quixotic nature" of Hollywood. He was later officially presented his Razzie at his offices on the Warner Bros.
1999: Wild Wild West earned five Razzies (including Worst Picture) that year. Robert Conrad, who starred in the 1960s The Wild Wild West television series and despised the film version, accepted three of the five Razzies.
2000: Although he didn't officially accept the award, Barry Pepper stated (after the fact) that had he known he was going to win the 2000 Razzie Award for Worst Supporting Actor (which he did win, for Battlefield Earth).
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 any more than anyone else here... dear God, I want to say that. I don't think it would be true, though." He turned up in a white Cadillac and brought his own length of red carpet. Green's speech included a never-ending piece of music played on the harmonica, and he was eventually dragged off stage.
2003: 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.
2004: Halle Berry accepted her Razzie for Worst Actress for the film Catwoman. She gave a speech, similar to when she won the 2002 Best Actress Academy Award for Monster's Ball, carrying her Oscar in one hand and her Razzie in the other.While onstage, she called the film a "piece of shit, god-awful movie", which met laughter and applause. Shortly afterwards, 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.
2008: Kim Kardashian was nominated for Worst Supporting Actress in 2009 for her performance in Disaster Movie. She mentioned being nominated in her personal blog and rather than being insulted, she took it in stride and said that "It's an honor just being nominated!"
The only two actors to be nominated for an Oscar and Razzie for the same performance are James Coco for Only When I Laugh in 1982 and Amy Irving for Yentl in 1984. Neither won either award.
Jack Nicholson was nominated for Worst Actor (for both Hoffa and Man Trouble) in 1992. That same year, he was also nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the Oscars for A Few Good Men.
Uma Thurman was nominated for Worst Actress (for Even Cowgirls Get the Blues) in 1994. That same year, she was also nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars for Pulp Fiction.
Daryl Hannah won the Razzie for Worst Supporting Actress for her role in Wall Street in 1987. Her co-star Michael Douglas, meanwhile, won the Oscar for Best Actor for his role in that film.
Tom Cruise starred in the Worst Picture winner Cocktail and co-starred in the Best Picture Oscar winner Rain Man in 1988.
Christopher Walken and Alec Baldwin were both nominated for an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor and a Razzie for Worst Supporting Actor in the same year, although for different films. Walken was nominated for Best Supporting Actor in 2002 for Catch Me if You Can and Worst Supporting Actor for The Country Bears. Baldwin was nominated for Best Supporting Actor in 2003 for The Cooler and Worst Supporting Actor for The Cat in the Hat.
The actors to have won both a Razzie and an Oscar for acting are: Faye Dunaway, Marlon Brando, Charlton Heston, Laurence Olivier, Roberto Benigni, Halle Berry, and Liza Minnelli, as well as Nicole Kidman (worst screen couple with Will Ferrell for Bewitched in 2005) who won Best Actress for The Hours in 2002. In addition Sofia Coppola, Ben Affleck, Kevin Costner and Prince are also Oscar and Razzie winners, but only one of the two awards was in acting.
Filmmaker James Cameron won the Worst Screenplay Razzie in 1986 for his role in the writing of Rambo: First Blood Part II. He would later go on to win three Oscars for Titanic.
Songwriter Diane Warren earned both Razzie and Oscar nominations for the songs "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" from the movie Armageddon and "How Do I Live" from the movie Con Air; she didn't win either of the two awards.
Songwriters Leslie Bricusse & Henry Mancini earned both Razzie and Oscar nominations for the song, "Life in a Looking Glass" from the 1986 film That's Life!.
Rambo: First Blood Part II, Rocky III, Pearl Harbor, Norbit, Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, Batman Begins, and Superman Returns were all nominated for an Academy Award and a Razzie. Rambo lost at the Oscars in the category of Best Sound Effects Editing but won the Razzie for Worst Picture, Worst Actor and Worst Screenplay. Rocky III received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song and a Razzie nomination for Worst New Star. Pearl Harbor won an Oscar for Best Sound Effects Editing while getting shut out at the Razzies, and Norbit saw Eddie Murphy winning three of the four Acting Razzies (see Razzie Records below) while getting shut out at the Oscars. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith was nominated an Oscar for Best Achievement in Makeup, but won a Razzie for Worst Supporting Actor. Batman Begins was nominated an Oscar for Best Cinematography, but was nominated a Razzie for Worst Supporting Actress. Superman Returns was nominated an Oscar for Best Visual Effects, but was nominated a Razzie for Worst Supporting Actress.
Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan was nominated for Oscar in the categories of Best Director and Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen for his film The Sixth Sense in the year 2000 but was nominated for Razzie awards in the categories Worst Picture, Actor, Director and Screenplay for The Happening in the year 2009.
The 2003 film Gigli was the first and, so far, only film to win in the top five categories at the Razzies (Worst Picture, Actor, Actress, Director and Screenplay). This makes it the Razzie equivalent of 1934's It Happened One Night, which was the first film to win the Oscar grand slam (Best Picture, Actor, Actress, Director and Screenplay).
I Know Who Killed Me (2007) has received the most Razzie awards, at eight wins out of nine nominations (only lost at Worst Supporting Actress), in a single awards year. It is also the only movie to have an actress win the Worst Actress award twice: both of Lindsay Lohan's characters tied for the honor. This also ties the record for most Razzies won by a single film: Showgirls (1995) and Battlefield Earth (2000) each won seven Razzies in their respective eligibility years and then an eighth in later years (the former won Worst Movie of the Decade in 2000, the latter Worst Drama of Our First 25 Years in 2005).
Actor Sylvester Stallone has received 30 nominations and ten wins and is the actor with the largest number of nominations and wins. He was nominated for the Worst Actor award for nine consecutive years from 1984 to 1992, winning four times.
Former United States president George W. Bush, former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice are the only non-actors to have won Razzies for their appearances in the 2004 Michael Moore documentary Fahrenheit 9/11. Bush won Worst Actor and shared the Worst Screen Couple Award with Rice and "his pet goat", while Rumsfeld won Worst Supporting Actor. Rice lost to Britney Spears for Worst Supporting Actress.
Actor Ben Stiller was nominated for Worst Actor in 2004 for a record five titles in one year. Stiller was nominated for his work in Along Came Polly, Anchorman, Dodgeball, Envy and Starsky & Hutch.
Actor Eddie Murphy received a single-year record five nominations in 2007 for Norbit: three acting nominations (one for each character he played), one for Worst Couple (again, relating to his playing multiple characters) and one for Worst Screenplay. He went on to win all three acting nominations, becoming the first person ever to win a Razzie for both male and female performances in a single film.
