Razzies 'honour' Will and Jaden Smith sci-flop After Earth

After Earth

Story by Jack Foley

WILL and Jaden Smith emerged as the main winners at the annual Razzie awards, picking up three prizes for their sci-fi flop After Earth.

Fifteen-year-old Jaden won the statuette for worst actor, while his famous dad won the supporting actor Razzie. The father-son pair were also voted worst screen combo.

However, they were spared the complete humiliation of securing the worst picture prize, which went instead to ensamble comedy Movie 43, an anthology who cast included – incredibly – Kate Winslet, Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry.

Tyler Perry (in drag) was named worst actress for A Madea Christmas, while Kim Kardashian was worst supporting actress for Tyler Perry’s Temptation.

Blockbuster flop The Lone Ranger, starring Johnny Depp as Tonto, was named worst remake or sequel.

For the first time in years, Adam Sandler went home empty-handed despite seeing his film sequel Grown Ups 2 nominated in eight categories.

Officially known as the Golden Raspberry Awards, the Razzies were created in 1980 “as the logical antidote to Tinsel Town’s annual glut of self-congratulatory awards”.

They take place on the eve of the Oscars and are just a short walk from the Academy Awards red carpet – although very few winners turn up to receive their prizes.
