Commonly, the recognitions or awards that are given to actors, directors or movies are to reward and recognize the excellent work done, however not everyone obtains them with the same intention.
The Razzie Awards are given only to the most unpleasant and disappointing proyects in the film industry, they are exclusive to movies that have been highly criticized for lack of quality in their production, whether at the level of script, acting, or direction.
These are 3 movies awarded as the worst in history:
‘50 Shades of Grey‘: This production released in 2015 and starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson was classified as boring, and lacked chemistry between the characters, which is why this film adaptation received multiple Razzie awards.
‘Transformers: Age of Extinction‘: It was released in 2014 and the main actors were Mark Wahlberg and Nicola Peltz, although it was a total success at the box office, it was criticized for its confusing and unoriginal plot, and unnecessarily long, between The Razzie Awards it received ‘Worst Director’ and ‘Worst Movie of the Year’.
‘Emoji: The Movie‘: This animated film aimed at children was released in 2017, although it was a film for kids, it was considered a “nonsense” story, causing it to take home the Razzie Award for ‘Worst Animated Film’.
