The Cats CGI-filled musical adaption of the hit Broadway sensation of the same name took home six awards, the most of any film, including Worst Picture and Worst Director for Tom Hooper. Other awards included Worst Supporting Actor (James Corden), Worst Supporting Actress (Rebel Wilson), Worst Screen Combo, and Worst Screenplay.
Hooper’s recent win places him in an exclusive group of people who have both won an Oscar and a Razzie. The director previously took home Best Director at the Academy Awards in 2011 for The King’s Speech.
The Razzies were originally expected to happen last Saturday night at Hollywood’s Barnsdall Gallery Theatre, but the event was canceled due to health and safety concerns.
The awards instead took place on the web, announcing the winners via a YouTube video in a mini-ceremony dubbed “The Lock-Down Edition.”
In the video announcement, Razzie organizers pointed out that a “very big show” was planned, including “an opening numbers, parodies, sketches, roving Razzie reporters, Miss Goldenberries, a stage hand, presenters including Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, and winners willing to own their bad.”
In addition to Cats, Rambo: Last Blood also took home several awards, winning Worst Remake, Worst Ripoff or Sequel, and Worst Reckless Disregard for Human Life and Public Property.
John Travolta was named the worst actor for two separate projects, The Fanatic and Trading Paint, while the Worst Actress award was given to Hilary Duff for her role in The Haunting of Sharon Tate.
Finally, Eddie Murphy won the Razzie Redeemer award for his Netflix flick Dolemite Is My Name.
