The Wrap Saturday, 23 February 2019
‘Holmes & Watson,’ Melissa McCarthy and Donald Trump Win Razzie Awards for Worst of 2018“Holmes & Watson,” the Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly buddy comedy, “won” the Worst Picture award at the 39th Annual Razzie Awards.

The film also picked up the Golden Raspberry, or the “$4.97 Trophy,” in three other categories, including John C. Reilly for Worst Supporting Actor, Etan Cohen for Worst Director and the prize for Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel.

President Donald Trump won a pair of awards from the Razzies for his likeness appearing in two documentaries, Michael Moore’s “Fahrenheit 11/9” and “Death of a Nation” from Dinesh D’Souza, including Worst Actor and Worst Screen Combo, paired with his “self-perpetuating pettiness.” Kellyanne Conway won the prize for Worst Supporting Actress for “Fahrenheit 11/9.”

Melissa McCarthy, who is nominated for an Oscar for “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” won Worst Actress from the Razzies. She won for appearing in both “Life of the Party” and “The Happytime Murders” in 2018, but the group also gave her the Razzie Redeemer Award for her “more complex role” in “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” which is unprecedented for the Razzies.

In past years, the Razzies have held a mini-ceremony for the winners, and Sandra Bullock once accepted her Razzie for “All About Steve” in the same year she won her Oscar for “The Blind Side.”

Finally, “Fifty Shades Freed,” the final film in the trilogy based on E.L. James’s novels, won Worst Screenplay for its writer Niall Leonard.
