In case you don’t know about the Golden Raspberry Awards, they started in 1981 after famed publicist and copywriter John J.B. Wilson gathered his friends together to present made up awards on the night of the Academy Awards. After the event caught on with major news networks over the course of their first few years, the Razzies blew up into a remarkable event as a backlash to the worst of film and cinema of the past year.
The 2020 Golden Raspberry Awards marks 40 years of the event which will be airing on TV for the first time ever.
Today, the nominations are out and from some of the reactions revolving around certain movies this year, they aren’t surprising.
Cats is being nominated in nearly every category with Rambo: Last Blood coming in just short of most nominations.
