Donald Trump receives three Razzie nominations
Donald Trump received a nomination for Worst Actor for his appearance in Michael Moore's documentary 'Fahrenheit 11/9' and Dinesh d'Souza's 'Death of a Nation'.
LONDON - The President of the United States has received three nods in Hollywood's 39th annual 'worst off' line-up, the Golden Raspberries.
Donald Trump received a nomination for Worst Actor for his appearance in Michael Moore's documentary Fahrenheit 11/9 and Dinesh d'Souza's Death of a Nation.
The US leader and his "self-perpetuating pettiness" also received a nod for Worst Screen Combo, while his wife Melania, was nominated for Worst Supporting Actress for playing herself in Fahrenheit 11/9.
However, the First Lady faces competition for the dubious award from Counselor to the President and former presidential campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, who also got the nod for appearing in Moore's documentary, alongside Marcia Gay Harden (Fifty Shades Freed),
Fahrenheit 11/9 featured Moore interviewing American citizens to get a sense of the social, economic and political impact of Trump's victory, while Death of a Nation - which has been shortlisted for Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel, as it's been branded a remake of Hillary's America - conducts an in-depth examination of fascism and white supremacy.
Also up for Worst Actor are Johnny Depp for his voice role in animated adventure Sherlock Gnomes, Will Ferrell as Detective Sherlock Holmes in the crime comedy Holmes & Watson, John Travolta for gangster biopic _Gotti _and Bruce Willis for his role as Dr. Paul Kersey in the crime drama Death Wish.
Puppet-noir comedy The Happytime Murders, _Gotti _and Holmes & Watson all got six nods each, and Happytime Murders also received a worst screen combo nomination for its actor-puppet interactions, "especially in those creepy sex scenes".
All three are shortlisted for Worst Picture, alongside Robin Hood and Winchester.
Depp's ex-wife Amber Heard was also nominated for Worst Actress for her performance in the London Fields adaptation, alongside the star of The Happytime Murders, Melissa McCarthy, Jennifer Garner for Peppermint, Dame Helen Mirren (Winchester) and Amanda Seyfried (The Clapper).
The Razzies take place in Los Angeles on February 23, the day before the Oscar winners are announced.
