Cats nearly sweeps 2020 Razzie Awards, John Travolta, Hilary Duff also winners(?)

Surprising absolutely no one, Cats triumphed, if you can call it triumph, at the 2020 Golden Raspberry Awards, better known as the Razzies, honoring the worst achievements in film for 2019.

Tom Hooper’s much-derided, CGI-filled musical adaptation of the Broadway smash took home the most awards with six, including Worst Picture, Worst Director for Hooper, and Worst Supporting Actor and Actress for stars James Corden and Rebel Wilson. Hooper’s win places him in the rarefied group of people who have won both an Oscar and a Razzie (Hooper took home Best Director in 2011 for The King’s Speech).

Much more surprising was the fact that the awards were given out at all. The 40th annual Razzies ceremony had been scheduled to take place on Saturday, March 14, but was among the many, many pop culture events canceled in light of the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. So the Razzies took to the web instead, announcing the winners via a snarky YouTube video in a mini-ceremony dubbed “The Lock-Down Edition.”

Among the non-feline “winners” were John Travolta, earning his second Worst Actor award for The Fanatic and Trading Paint (his first was for 2000’s Battlefield Earth and Lucky Numbers); Hilary Duff, named Worst Actress for her performance in last year’s other Sharon Tate movie; and Rambo: Last Blood, which won Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel and a new award, Worst Reckless Disregard for Human Life and Public Property. Eddie Murphy also earned the Razzie Redeemer Award, given to a past Razzie nominee or winner who has bounced back from a critical or commercial slump, for his performance in Dolemite Is My Name.
