Trump attorney Giuliani twice in the race
In the supporting roles it can be Glenn Close (“Hillbilly Elegy”), Kristen Wiig (“Wonder Woman 1984”), Arnold Schwarzenegger (“Iron Mask”), Bruce Willis (“Hard Kill”) or Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Meet Giuliani. Giuliani was nominated in two categories for his appearance in the satire “Borat Anschluss Moviefilm”. The former New York mayor unwittingly took part in the film – he was lured into a hotel room and filmed by the creators under false pretenses.
The scene shows Giuliani in a compromising situation. He can be seen flirting with a young woman on a hotel bed who posed as a reporter. He seems to be putting his hand in his pants. Giuliani had described the scene as “pure fake” even before the film was released. On the online service Twitter, the 76-year-old wrote that he had just tucked his shirt into his pants and that at no point did he “behave inappropriately”. Together with Giuliani, the Bulgarian actress Maria Bakalova also beckons the “Golden Raspberry” for the “worst screen couple” in the satire.

The Razzie trophy for the worst screen couple could also go to Harrison Ford as a gold prospector in the adventure film “Call of the Wild” – together with the “totally fake” digitally created dog Buck, the award givers found. Because of the Corona crisis, there is also a special trophy for 2020 as the “worst calendar year ever”. A year ago, the jurors showered the critically panned film musical “Cats” with six shameful prizes.

Counterpart to glamorous Oscars
The “Razzies” were launched in 1980 by the film buff John Wilson as a counterpart to the glamorous Academy Awards. More than 1,100 members from the United States and two dozen other countries are said to be involved in the vote.
The nominees usually stay away from the joke show. Exceptions were made by “Catwoman” Halle Berry (2005) and Sandra Bullock, who personally picked up the ridiculous prize for “Crazy About Steve” in 2010.
The “winners” are traditionally announced on the day before the Oscar gala, which this year will take place on April 25th. On Monday, the Hollywood Film Academy will announce the Oscar nominations. (dpa / APA / TT.com)
