Will Smith and son win big at the Razzies Awards as worst actors
--- Razzies Dishonor Father-Son Team Will and Jaden Smith for 'After Earth'
This year's 34th Annual Razzie Awards — presented as is tradition on the night before the Oscars — didn't let Will and Jaden Smith by with a pass this year. Not in the least. Considered frontrunners for the dubious gold spray-painted trophies, the father-son team were the night's big "winners," sweeping the male acting categories for director M. Night Shyamalan's coming of age sci-fi tale "After Earth." Jaden was named Worst Actor, Will got Worst Supporting Actor, and together they shared the dishonor of Worst Screen Combo.
Like the sad Smiths, the raunchy ensemble comedy "Movie 43" got three awards. But Halle Berry, nominated twice in the Wost Actress category came away unscathed. The former Oscar (and Razzie) winner's chances may have been watered down due to a double nod — once for her role as a poodle-perm'd 9-1-1 dispatcher in the thriller "The Call," and again for her part in the much-reviled, star-studded spoof fest.
It's not the first time Will Smith was given the Razzie for Worst Screen Couple. He and Kevin Kline were given the distinction for 1999's "Wild Wild West," which was subsequently named Worst Picture of that year. As it happens, another big-budget flop based on a Western TV show also took a Razzie this year. Johnny Depp's notorious "The Lone Ranger" was declared the Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel.
Tyler Perry is the second man ever to win a Worst Actress Razzie for his latest turn as the bespectacled and biased elderly woman in "A Madea Christmas." The previous male winner of Worst Actress, Adam Sandler, and his sequel "Grown-Ups 2" came into the evening with the most nominations, but failed to garner even one Golden Raspberry Award. Though Sandler already has plenty, having swept the ceremony in 2011 for "Jack & Jill."
Kim Kardashian earned Worst Supporting Actress for her work in "Tyler Perry's Temptation," marking her first "win." She was nominated before in 2008 for her screen debut in "Disaster Movie" and "lost" to her famous frienemy Paris Hilton.
Sylvester Stallone, already battered and bruised by his record-breaking 31 Razzie nominations and a handful of wins, was passed over on Saturday night for his work in "Bullet to the Head," "Escape Plan" and "Grudge Match." (The Razzies even deemed him the Worst Actor of the '80s for roles including the "Rambo" series, "Cobra," and "Rocky IV".)
