Robert Downey Jr., Kate Hudson, and Anne Hathaway deemed among the worst performers of the year by Razzies
Last year might've been a massive stinker for the film industry in general, and in keeping with tradition, the 2021 Razzie Awards have added insult to injury.
The Golden Raspberry "awards" body unveiled its picks for the worst films and performances of the calendar year on Friday, trotting problematic titles like Sia's controversial autism-centered directorial debut Music and the Netflix drama 365 Days, which was heavily maligned for its depictions of sexual violence, into its Worst Picture category. Both 365 Days and Dolittle received the most number of overall nominations, with six each.
Also among the worst performances of the last year, the Razzies nominated A-list stars like Dolittle's Robert Downey, Jr., 2021 Golden Globe nominee Kate Hudson (Music), Katie Holmes (Brahms: The Boy II), and Anne Hathaway (The Last Thing He Wanted), while 39-time Razzie nominee Adam Sandler picked up another honor among the Worst Actor set for his performance in Hubie Halloween.
Supporting performers touted as the worst of the year include Glenn Close's likely Oscar-contending role in Hillbilly Elegy, Kristen Wiig's villainous turn as Cheetah in Wonder Woman 1984, and Rudy Giuliani as himself in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm. Giuliani also received a nomination for Worst Screen Combo alongside potential Academy Award nominee Maria Bakalova, though her nod can be chalked up to the creepiness of the film's headline-making, documentary-style scene that sees Giuliani seemingly sticking his hand down his pants while alone with the actress in a hotel room.
