39th Golden Raspberry Awards

Trump, McCarthy, and Reilly-all losers of the Razzies

I skipped a lot of these stinkers, but I’ve sat through some pretty bad ones. No, really, really bad ones. Let’s see how many of my picks are the winners or losers, in this case.

Worst Picture: “Holmes and Watson”

CJ’s Choice: “The Happytime Murders”

Worst Director: Ethan Cohen for “Holmes and Watson”

CJ’s Choice: Brian Henson for “The Happytime Murders”

Worst Actor: Donald Trump in “Fahrenheit 11/9” and “Death of a Nation”

CJ’s Choice: Donald Trump in “Fahrenheit 11/9” and “Death of a Nation”

I saw neither of them.

Worst Actress: Melissa McCarthy in “The Happytime Murders” and “Life of the Party”

CJ’s Choice: Melissa McCarthy in “The Happytime Murders” and “Life of the Party”

Worst Supporting Actor: John C. Reilly in “Holmes and Watson”

CJ’s Choice: Justice Smith in “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”

To me, he was part of the stupid choices, which in his case, was to stare at the dinosaur that’s about to attack him. The filmmakers have to make these things look so dramatic, before their characters climb up ladders or run. Stupids.

Worst Supporting Actress: Kellyanne Conway in “Fahrenheit 11/9”

CJ’s Choice: Melania Trump in “Fahrenheit 11/9”

These two have something in common.

Worst On-Screen Combo: Donald Trump and his self-perpetuating pettiness in “Fahrenheit 11/9” and “Death of a Nation”

CJ’s Choice: Any two actors or puppets in “The Happytime Murders”

Worst Rip-Off, Remake, Prequel, or Sequel: “Holmes and Watson”

CJ’s Choice: “Holmes and Watson”

And I skipped it.

Worst Screenplay: “Fifty Shades of Grey”

CJ’s Choice: “The Happytime Murders”

You can’t just assume that cursing, smoking, drinking, and nasty puppets are enough to make the movie a laugh riot. And about the humans, I want to assure you: it’s not “The Heat.”

Forging Ahead: Melissa McCarthy is Lee Israel in Can You Ever Forgive Me?

The Razzie Redeemer Award: Melissa McCarthy in “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”

CJ’s Choice: Sony Pictures Animation for “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse”

I always complained that this animation company never opened their minds to the many possibilities of animation, which is why I skipped “Hotel Transylvania 3” and “The Emoji Movie,” but they finally made a masterpiece.

Barry L. Bumstead Award: “Billionaire Boys”

The results: 3 of my guesses were right.
