Hollywood's worst movies and performances are about to be honored on TV. Comedy Dynamics is bringing The Razzies to TV for the first time in its nearly 40-year history. The parody awards show enjoys taking aim at the worst of the worst and nobody is safe. For instance, Donald Trump dominated this year's awards, taking home the Worst Actor award for his work on Death of a Nation and Fahrenheit 11/9 as himself. Holmes & Watson was also a big winner this year. The show will be able to be seen by anyone who gets the Comedy Dynamics channel.
The Razzie Awards were co-founded by UCLA film students and entertainment veterans John J. B. Wilson and Mo Murphy. The annual ceremony takes place in Los Angeles one day before the Academy Awards ceremony. The annual event has been making fun of the stuffier awards shows for decades and they're almost always a good time, with some of the actors and actresses on hand to receive their spray painted award for their worst performance or directing. Donald Trump sadly was not on hand this year to sweep the show.
Comedy Dynamics was founded by Brian Volk-Weiss and is a part of the Nacelle company. This is a great paring for The Razzie Awards since Comedy Dynamics is one of the largest independent comedy production and distribution companies with production credits including, Netflix's Kevin Hart's Guide to Black History and The Toys That Made Us. Contact your local cable or satellite provider to see if you have access to the Comedy Dynamics channel to ensure you're able to watch The Razzie Awards when the time comes early next year.
Since Comedy Dynamics will be televising The Razzie Awards, it is expected that some of the stars and other talent being honored might attend. While the award ceremony is all in good fun, some people in the entertainment industry aren't into receiving awards that downplay their talents on the big screen. With that being said, Tom Green (Worst Actor/Worst Director), Halle Berry (Worst Actress), Sandra Bullock (Worst Actress), Michael Ferris, J. D. Shapiro (Worst Screenplay), and Paul Verhoeven (Worst Director) have all attended the ceremony over the years, proving they have a good sense of humor about what they do.
Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst Actor, Worst Actress, Worst Supporting Actor, Worst Supporting Actress, Worst Screenplay, Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel, Worst Screen Combo, and The Razzie Redeemer Award are all of the current awards that are still given out each year at The Razzie Awards. As for some current movies that could be included, that's anyone's guess, but the latest Child's Play remake, Dark Phoenix, Verotika, and others may already be in the running. We'll just have to keep an eye out when the nominations are announced. Deadline was the first to report The Razzie Award news.
