Razzies, basically the opposite of the Oscars, were handed out this weekend as well as the Oscars, and the “worst of the year” in Hollywood was named. The award winners – or, more appropriately stated, the losers – selected by online Razzies voters, were named on Saturday, according to the New York Daily News on Monday.
Jaden Smith was named worst actor for his starring role in “After Earth,” a movie in which he appeared with his father Will Smith – who incidentally was named worst supporting actor for his performance in the movie. As a duo, the two were named the worst screen combo as well.
“After Earth” and Movie 43” both tied for the most Razzies by getting three awards each. “Movie 43,” however, beat out “After Earth” as the worst movie of 2013. “After Earth” was a sci-fi flick while “Movie 43” is difficult to describe. Basically, it is an attempt at comedy via an anthology. “Movie 43” featured many stars including Richard Gere, Kate Winslet and Halle Berry. Besides being named worst picture, it also won worst director and worst screenplay. Incidentally, “Movie 43” had 13 directors and 19 screenwriters.
Other negative awards went to Tyler Perry for worst actress for “A Madea Christmas.” Kim Kardashian got the worst supporting actress for “Tyler Perry’s Temptation.”
Quite surprisingly, “Grown-Ups 2” and Adam Sandler didn’t win any awards. Even though the Sandler film was nominated 8 times, he escaped the event without even one Razzie award.
Saturday night’s event was the 34th annual Razzies presentation which occurred at a conference center near the Dolby Theater where the Oscar awards – for Hollywood’s bests – were handed out on Sunday.
