It was a family affair at the annual Razzie Awards Saturday, when Will Smith and his teenage son Jaden were named the worst supporting actor and worst actor, respectively, for their performances in the sci-fli flop After Earth. The two also picked up the “award” for worst screen combo. The biggest Golden Raspberry statue of the night though went to Movie 43, the anthology comedy that features several famous names, including Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet and Halle Berry, which got the worst movie of the year award, reports the Los Angeles Times. The movie’s 13 directors also got the worst director award while its 19 screenwriters were apparently the worst writers of the movies over the past year.
Others to pick up awards in the tongue-in-cheek ceremony that always takes place the day before the Oscars, included Tyler Perry, who was named worst actress for his performance as Madea in A Madea Christmas while Kim Kardashian got her first Razzie for supporting actress for Tyler Perry’s Temptation. For its part, the Lone Ranger starring Johnny Depp got the award for the worst prequel, remake, rip-off or sequel. The full list of “winners” is available over at Entertainment Weekly.
