2020 Razzies at Long Last

Razzie voters still can’t expunge their “Memory” of Cats judging by the way the film claimed half the 2020 Golden Raspberry awards when they were finally announced online today.

But there were enough raspberries left over for deserving actors in other movies – John Travolta won for both his work in The Fanatic and Trading Paint, and Hilary Duff won for her film The Haunting of Sharon Tate, in which she played the iconic ’60s starlet in a horror film.

  1. I am one of the few people to admit aloud I kind of… enjoyed Cats? Not without certain moments of WTF or eyerolling, but that exact description could be used for the Rise of Skywalker.

    And yet, I absolutely agree with both their picks for worst supporting actress and worst supporting actor, whose set pieces were some of the most WTF of all.

  2. Usually putting 586 fields in the bib records for the Razzie winners at work is a minor highlight of the season for me. (Hugo and Nebula winners, too.) But even if the system will let me log in from home, I’m on leave and want to be on leave. It’ll wait.

  3. I assume that “The Fanatic,” “Trading Paint,” and “The Haunting of Sharon Tate” bypassed theaters and went direct to streaming services. I don’t remember hearing of any of those movies before.

  4. Maybe somebody made the mistake of sending publicity screener copies to Razzie voters?
