Razzies: Kirk Cameron Leads Anti-Oscars; Ben Affleck Wins Inaugural Redeemer Nod

The 35th annual Golden Raspberry Awards were handed out Saturday evening, satirizing “the Worst Achievements in Film for 2014.” Falling one day before the Academy Awards, the anti-Oscars were led by Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas with four prizes including Worst Picture and Worst Actor. Going in, Transformers: Age Of Extinction had the most nominations with seven, but Michael Bay’s billion-dollar box office blockbuster settled for just two — Worst Director and Worst Supporting Actor.

In a sign the Razzies may be softening after 35 years (or just in a bid to remain relevant), the group opened up a new category, the Razzie Redeemer, which acknowledges “that past nominees and ‘winners’ can (and often do) go on to far far better things.” The inaugural class included Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Mike Myers, Keanu Reeves and (newly-minted César winner) Kristen Stewart. Affleck won the honor on Saturday night, the org says, for going from being a Razzie winner in Gigli, to becoming a 2012 Best Picture Oscar winner for Argo and for his role in this year’s Gone Girl. The full list of Razzie winners is below:
