Actors and Actresses Who Have Won a Golden Raspberry

Since 1981, the Golden Raspberry, often known as the Razzies, has been presented to the “worst” in each category, including Worst Film, Worst Screenplay, and Worst Actor. In 2022, the Razzies will celebrate its 42nd anniversary, and some of the nominees for Worst Actor may come as a surprise to viewers.

1. Bruce Willis

Bruce Willis

Willis was recognized for the first time in the history of the Golden Raspberry Awards with a category titled “Worst Performance by Bruce Willis in a 2021 Film.” Midnight in the Switch grass, American Siege, Apex, Cosmic Sin, Deadlock, Fortress, Out of Death, and Survive the Game were the films in this category.

In seven of these films, Willis portrayed a person of authority, such as an FBI agent, former military leader, retired CIA official, or police officer. However, in the film Deadlock, Willis played Ron Whitlock, a criminal mastermind. As the Razzies are scheduled to announce their winners on March 26, 2022, one of Willis’s parts is certain to win.

2. Amy Adams

Amy Adams portrayed Anna Fox, a woman suffering from agoraphobia or the fear of leaving her house, in The Woman in The Window. Jane Russell (Julianne Moore), who had newly moved in across the street, was introduced to her. Anna’s flat on the second floor afforded her a clear view of her neighbors, where she witnessed the murder of Jane by her husband.

Alistair (Gary Oldman) stated that his wife, Jane, is still alive, therefore nobody believed the murder truly occurred. This time, Jennifer Jason Leigh introduced herself as Jane. Anna was determined to demonstrate that she was not hallucinating the event. The Woman In The Window attempted to imitate The Rear Window’s cinematic approaches (1954). For her performance, Adams was nominated for Worst Actress.

3. Sandra Bullock

For her performance in the film All About Steve, one of Hollywood’s most beloved actresses personally accepted the prizes for Worst Actress and Worst Screen Couple. The following evening, she won the Oscar for Best Actress for her performance in The Blind Side.

4. Halle Berry

For her performance in Catwoman, the A-list actress accepted the award for Worst Actress. She memorably accepted her trophy at the 25th Golden Raspberry Awards while carrying the Oscar she had just won for her role in Monster’s Ball.

5. Al Pacino

Al Pacino is undeniably a terrific performer, as evidenced by his eight nominations for an Oscar and his win for Best Actor in the 1993 film Scent of a Woman. However, based on the roles he has played in recent years, it is possible to argue that the renowned actor’s best acting days are behind him.

In 2012, Pacino was awarded the Razzies for Worst Supporting Actor and Worst Screen Couple for his agonizing performance in Jack and Jill, an Adam Sandler flop in which he portrayed himself. To give you a sense of just how terrible the film is, Jack and Jill is the only film in the history of the Razzies to win every single award presented that evening. Yikes.

6. Nicole Kidman

As one of the most accomplished actors of her generation, Nicole Kidman’s many nominations for the Academy Award for Best Actress come as no surprise. Although she eventually won the Academy Award for her performance as Virginia Woolf in The Hours, she has made a few duds over her career. The 2005 film adaptation of the 1960s television series Bewitched was particularly terrible and earned her and co-star Will Ferrell a Razzie for Worst Screen Couple.

7. Kevin Costner

When Kevin Costner won the Best Director and Best Picture Oscars for his film Dances with Wolves, he reached the pinnacle of his career and was able to select virtually any Hollywood project he desired. Unfortunately, the majority of his subsequent films were Razzie favorites. In 1992, despite the film’s commercial success, he earned the Razzie for Worst Actor for Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. In 1995, he got the Razzie for Worst Remake or Sequel for Wyatt Earp. The following year, he won the Razzie for Worst Actor, Worst Director, and Worst Picture for The Postman. Costner was nominated for Worst Actor of the Century, but lost to Sylvester Stallone, who has been a Razzie favorite for virtually his entire career. Perhaps this year’s Oscar nomination and probable victory for Stallone’s Creed can help change this attitude.

8. Laurence Olivier

You’re undoubtedly wondering how one of the most esteemed actors in history could get a Razzie. In fact, Laurence Olivier won both Razzie awards for which he was nominated. The first was for Worst Supporting Actor for his role in the 1981 film The Jazz Singer, which was an unpopular version of the iconic Al Jolson film and the first film to incorporate synced dialogue. His second Razzie, for Worst Actor, was awarded just one year later for his performance in the critically panned film Inchon.

At the time, Inchon was considered one of the worst commercial failures in Hollywood history, with a production budget of $46 million and a gross of only $5 million. Olivier’s now-famous reaction to the question of why he consented to star in a film with such a poorly written script was “Money, dear son.” I’m like a vintage wine. You must consume me soon before I get sour.”

Nonetheless, a few Razzies did little to tarnish the actor’s famous career, which included five Emmys, three Golden Globes, three BAFTAs, two honorary Academy Awards, and one Best Actor Oscar for his 1949 performance as Hamlet.

9. Mel Gibson

Hacksaw Ridge directed by Mel Gibson earned him the Razzie Redeemer Award in 2017 for his directing efforts. The actor was nominated for the Oscar for Best Director for the same film and won two Oscars (Best Picture and Best Director) for Braveheart in 1996. Unfortunately, he won the Razzie Award for worst supporting actor for his performance in Daddy’s Home 2 in 2018.

10. Leonardo DiCaprio

In 1998’s The Man in the Iron Mask, Leonardo DiCaprio portrayed both King Louis XIV of France and his imprisoned twin brother, for which he was awarded the Razzie for worst screen coupling. He did not win an Academy Award until 2016, though. In that year’s Razzie category, which also included Ben Affleck and Liv Tyler’s on-screen chemistry (or lack thereof) in Armageddon, his double-duty effort was noteworthy enough to edge out the competition.
