“The Emoji Movie” is the biggest winner at Razzies 2018
After 38 years, The Emoji Movie "made history" as the first work was awarded the worst movie. This is also the "big win" in the Gold Raspberry Awards this year when called four times of a total of 10 nominations. In addition to the "Worst Film" award, the film also "won" the "major" awards such as: Worst Director, Worst Screenplay and Worst Screen Combo.
"The Emoji Movie" debuted in the summer of 2017, revolving around live emoticons in Textopolis city on the phone, which received only 9% positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and was thought to lack ideas seriously.
Meanwhile, the Worst Actor Ward has belonged to actor Tom Cruise for his role in “The Mummy”. In the movie, Tom Cruise plays an American soldier who casually resurrects a mummy and must stop this ancient evil force. He had three Oscar nominations, but never once left with the Golden Statue. It was the second Razzie award in his career. Previously, in 1994, Tom Cruise shared with Brad Pitt the worst pair of screens for his role in the famous vampire film “Interview with the Vampire”.
Especially this year, the Worst Actress Award has awarded for an actor. It's Tyler Perry who pretends to be a girl in “Boo 2! A Madea Halloween”.
Historically, Faye Dunaway, Liza Minnelli, Halle Berry and Sandra Bullock have been the rare Oscar winners, having just won the Golden Raspberry Awards. This year, this list added Kim Basinger. The 64-year-old was named the worst supporting actress for her role in “The Fifty Shades Darker”.
Also right after the announcement of the Golden Raspberry Awards, the organizers also posted a short film called “In Memoriam” on the Internet. But if Oscar honors the movie industry for the past year, the Golden Raspberry Awards want to ridicule Hollywood names that have been accused of sex assault and abuse such as Harvey Weinstein, Steven Seagal, James Toback, Bill Cosby, Louis C.K., Kevin Spacey, James Franco, Casey Affleck, Russell Simmons, Danny Masterson, Woody Allen, Jeremy Piven and Brett Ratner.
