It is tradition. Every year, the Golden Raspberry Awards, better known as the Razzie Awards, award their raspberries to the best of the worst in Hollywood cinema. Quirky counter to the traditional Oscars, the nominations generally fall simultaneously with the official ceremony. But the sprinkler is often sprinkled and the Razzie Awards are often themselves mocked for criticizing the obvious or, conversely, for their absence of discernment. For example, at the first Razzie Awards in 1981, Stanley Kubrick was named in the Worst Director category for The Shining. In 1984, Brian de Palma was quoted in this same category for Scarface. In 2015, they tried their mea culpa by rewarding Ben Affleck – after criticizing him on numerous occasions – in the “Redemption” category for the films Gone Girl and Argo. But in addition to their errors of judgment, the Razzies sometimes create the controversy, as in 2022, when they announced the creation of a category entirely dedicated to Bruce Willis a few days before his family announced that the actor had aphasia and was ending his career. This year again, the Razzies have drawn the wrath of social networks after nominating 12-year-old Ryan Kiera Armstrong in the Worst Actress category for her performance in Firestarter.

In 2000, he nominated 10-year-old Jake Lloyd for the Worst Supporting Actor Razzie for his performance as a young Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Victim of harassment, the young actor will abandon the cinema following the release of the film. These nominations are established by the members of the Golden Raspberry Foundation. According to France Info, to join the foundation, all you have to do is pay 40 dollars or 500 dollars to become a life member. The members then do not have the obligation to have seen a film to name it.
