Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas was the big winner at this year’s Razzie Awards.
The faith-based comedy about the true meaning of Christmas won four awards, including worst picture and worst actor, at the 35th Golden Raspberry Awards ceremony on February 21.
The Razzies, which celebrates movie-making mediocrity, took place a short walk from the venue for tonight’s Oscars.
Razzie winners, who rarely turn up, get a $4.79 gold-spray-painted trophy.
Saving Christmas won worst picture, worst actor, worst screenplay and worst screen combo – for Kirk Cameron “and his ego”.
The movie is also only one of two films last year to score a zero rating on the review aggregation site
The tag line on its film poster is “Put Christ back in Christmas”.
Cameron Diaz was named worst actress for two comedies
The Other Woman and Sex Tape.
The worst supporting actress prize went to Megan Fox for the reboot of
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Transformers: Age of Extinction had led the field with seven nominations, but won only worst director and worst supporting actor for Kelsey Grammer. Annie was named the worst remake, rip-off or sequel.
A new category – the Razzie Redeemer award – was introduced this year to reward a former Razzies target who has done good work in the past 12 months.
Ben Affleck was saluted in an online public vote for going from the much-panned
Gigli to Oscar-winning Argo and Oscar-nominated Gone Girl.
The actor’s award was announced by real-life nun and veteran film critic Sister Rose Pacatte.
Rose Pacatte told the audience:
“We Catholic nuns are all about redemption.”
The regular awards are chosen by 757 voting members in the US and abroad.
For the first time, the paying public was able to attend the irreverent ceremony – held this year at Hollywood’s Montalban theatre.
