Donald Trump And Helen Mirren Were Both Nominated For Razzie Awards, What?

January 21, 2019 / Posted by:

Well, well, well – here’s one big award Lady Gaga won’t be taking home this year (besides the Oscar). The Razzie nominations are here, and there’s nary a nod to A Star Is Born, Green Book, or Bohemian Rhapsody, all movies more worthy of scorn (according TO ME) than any of the 5 that a got a Worst Movie nomination. And the acting category is a real mind-bender with Donald and Melania Trump each being nominated for playing themselves in Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9. Trump was even nominated a second time in Dinesh D’Souza’s Death of A Nation, also for playing himself. I mean, sure. But what are we really doing here?

The only Razzie decision that really made me feel good was Gotti sweeping the nods for Worst Picture, Worst Actor (John Travolta as Gotti), Worst Supporting Actress (Kelly Preston as Victoria Gotti), and Worst Director (Kevin Connolly aka E from Entourage). That shit’s funny. But turning the time honored tradition of trolling Adam Sandler into a political statement by including Donald and therefore making me think about him is just SAD!

Other egregious mistakes made by the Razzies nominating committee include not nominating Bryan Singer for Worst Director even though he was objectively THE WORST and got himself fired for it, and having the entire gall to include DAME HELEN MIRREN on this list as Worst Actress for Winchester, a movie I never even heard of before. How very dare they. Here’s a list of some of the other nominees (via The Hollywood Reporter).
