USA.- The Oscar awards They are the most prestigious award in the industry. Winning one can change an individual’s life, marking a turning point in his career or working as a recognition of his career as a whole. For their part, the Razzies they are quite the opposite, an award designed to “recognize” the worst in cinema.
Some actors are lucky enough to have been nominated for an Oscar; others have the misfortune to find themselves attacked by the Razzies. There are those who have Oscar and Razzie nominations on their resume. And then some received both nominations in the same year, like the ones you can see below:
The new millennium began chaotically for Christopher Walken. The actor gave one of his best performances in the biopic of Steven Spielberg from 2002 Catch Me If You Can, playing the deceitful Frank Abegnale Sr.. Wlaken’s work garnered rave reviews, winning awards SAG and BAFTA to the Best Supporting Actor and receiving a well-deserved Oscar nomination in the same category.
That same year, Walken co-starred in the box office flop The Country Bears, playing the main villain. The film received negative reviews, with critics finding it boring and meandering. Walken earned a Razzie nomination as Best Supporting Actor, although he did not win.
Alec Baldwin R.He received his first and only Academy Award nomination for his supporting role in the 2003 crime film The Cooler. The plot centers on Bernie Lootz, a “cooler” de Las Vegas cOuch bad luck brings misfortune to anxious gamblers. When Bernie’s love life changes and brings him happiness, his ruthless boss, shelly kaplow, seeks to end it abruptly. Baldwin’s portrayal of Kaplow was praised, earning him an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
Unfortunately, Baldwin’s other release in 2003, The Cat in the Hat, rreceived scathing reviews. Widely considered among the worst Dr. Seuss adaptations of all time, the film received numerous nominations at the 2004 Razzies, including for Worst Supporting Actor for Baldwin.
Sandra Bullock He has a rare distinction: He’s among the few people to win an Oscar and a Razzie in the same year, though not for the same role. Bullock won first for her performance in the 2009 sports drama The Blind Side, dwhere he played Leigh Anne Tuohy.
The Razzie came to her for her now infamous work in the 2009 sitcom All About Steve. For her role as a socially awkward woman stalking a cameraman, Bullock garnered scathing reviews, with many considering it the worst performance of her career. True to her honest and graceful persona, Bullock showed up at Razzie’s ceremony and accepted the award from her.
One year after winning his first Oscar for his work on The Theory of Everything, Eddie Redmayne returned tothe Dolby Theatre. The English actor competed at the 2016 ceremony for his lead role in the biopic The Danish Girl, Interpreting lily elbe, a Danish painter among the first recipients of gender-affirming surgery. Redmayne’s work hasn’t aged well, and the actor recently confessed that accepting the role was “a mistake.”
2016 was also the year he received his first Razzie nomination. Redmayne’s polarizing performance in Jupiter Ascending received negative reviews, and the actor won the Razzie forl Worst Supporting Actor. While Jupiter Ascending is far from perfect, giving him the win might have been too much.
In 2016, another acclaimed actor received Oscar and Razzie nominations. Rooney Mara delivered a career high in the dazzling romantic drama Carol of todd haynes. The actress received a Best Supporting Actress nomination, a clear case of Oscar fraud since Mara is a lead in the film, plain and simple. However, she lost the award to Alice Vikander, another case of category fraud.
Mara’s other release in 2015Joe Wright’s Bread, it was less successful. Mara faced money laundering accusations for accepting the role of Tiger Lily, and the film received scathing reviews from critics. While Mara shouldn’t have accepted the role, her performance wasn’t bad enough to warrant a Razzie nomination.
The always underrated Naomie Harris excels in the romantic drama of Barry Jenkins of 2016, Moonlight. As Chiron’s mother, Harris is brutal, delivering a harrowing portrait of cruelty and regret that earned her a well-deserved Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination.
Harris was also nominated at the 2016 Razzie Awards, though not individually. Instead, Harris received an ensemble nomination for the manipulative, formulaic drama of Will Smith Collateral Beauty. Harris’ nod came in the Worst Screen Combo category, where she competed against the film’s “entire cast of once respected actors.”
Adam McKay is one of the most divisive figures in Hollywood. Many appreciate its humor and tone, while others find it overrated and cheap. His 2018 film VICE fIt was one of the most polarizing movies of the year; however, it received eight nominations at the 2019 Oscars, including a Best Picture nomination and a Best Director nomination for McKay.
The prolific director and producer had another film in 2018, the vehicle of Will Ferrell, Holmes & Watson. The film drew overwhelmingly negative reviews and earned six Razzie nominations. As one of the producers at Holmes & Watson, McKay won the Razzie for Worst Picture.
2018 saw another Oscar-Razzie combo come to life. Melissa McCarthy won acclaim for his emotional and gritty performance in the black comedy biopic of Marielle Heller Can You Ever Forgive Me? For her portrayal of the writer Read Yisrael, McCarthy garnered the best reviews of her career, receiving an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.
However, McCarthy also drew an overwhelmingly negative reception for his other 2018 releases, the crime comedyI The Happytime Murders and comedy Life of the Party. The former earned six nominations at the 2019 Razzies, and McCarthy won Worst Actress for her work in both films.
Glenn Close has received eight Oscar nominations throughout his long and revered career. Her latest work came thanks to her supporting work on the divisive drama Ron Howard Hillbilly Elegy, An adaptation of the novel of the same name. The film polarized critics, though Close received mostly positive reviews, leading to an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress.
Close’s detractors also deemed her Razzie-worthy performance and nominated her in the Worst Supporting Actress category. Close is the third person to receive Oscar and Razzie nominations for the same performance; however, she did not win any of the awards.
