The star-studded but critically panned big-screen musical “Cats” finally emerged as a “winner,” earning a leading six Golden Raspberry Awards, which recognize the worst in cinema from the past year.
The film won the Razzie Award for worst picture, while also picking up “prizes” for worst supporting actress and actor — Rebel Wilson and James Corden — worst director for Tom Hooper, worst screenplay for Hooper and Lee Hall, and worst screen combo for “any two half-feline/half-human hairballs.”
The Razzie Awards were originally scheduled to be announced last Saturday at the Barnsdall Theatre, but the ceremony had to be canceled due to coronavirus concerns.
Instead, the Golden Raspberry Foundation announced the recipients via a YouTube video and online release.
Hilary Duff was named worst actress for “The Haunting of Sharon Tate,” while John Travolta won the prize for worst actor for “The Fanatic” and “Trading Paint.”
Sylvester Stallone’s “Rambo: Last Blood” collected two Razzies, for “worst remake, rip-off or sequel” and for “worst reckless disregard for human life and public property.”
On the positive side of the awards, Eddie Murphy received the Razzie Redeemer Award for his acclaimed work in “Dolemite is My Name.” Murphy is a multiple-Razzie winner.
