Rtl today – Most appalling film award: Rudy Giuliani wins two Razzie nominations for “Borat”
Rudy Giuliani didn’t even know he was appearing in “Borat After Moviefilm,” but that didn’t stop him from landing two acting nominations – Ironical Razzies.
The annual list of the most gruesome films of the year is the only awards show that no Hollywood star wants to be in, but Donald Trump’s lawyer Giuliani landed two spots in the nominations on Friday.
The sequel to the satirical film about a fictional Kazakh journalist saw Giuliani trapped in a fake “interview” in a hotel room with Borat’s attractive and flirtatious young girl, played by Maria Bakalova.
The scene ended with Giuliani seemingly in his pants, oblivious to the hidden cameras, though he later insisted he tucked his shirt in.
Giuliani is in the running for Worst Supporting Actor and Worst Screen Combo with Bulgarian actress Bakalova, who was nominated for a Golden Globe and is expected to be recognized at the Oscars for her role.
Glenn Close, who donned makeup to play the chain-smoking Appalachian matriarch “Mamaw,” in Netflix’s “Hillbilly Elegy,” is also riding on good and bad prices.
Close was nominated for the Globes and is being considered a contender for the Oscar nominations to be unveiled on Monday, but won a Razzie nod for Worst Supporting Actress.
Robert Downey Jr.’s remake of “Dolittle”, which was critically criticized, and Netflix’s Polish erotic drama “365 Days,” each won six nods.
The year 2020 itself will be awarded a “Special Governor’s Trophy” for “The Worst Calendar Year Ever”.
Officially known as the Golden Raspberry Awards, the Razzies are handed out the day before the Oscars, serving as a mockery of Tinseltown’s self-congratulatory pageantry the following night.
The Razzies were first awarded in 1981 at a Los Angeles salon, the brainchild of UCLA film graduates and industry veterans, who chose the raspberry as a symbol of derision.
