There are several celebrities who are both Oscar AND Razzie winners, which is given for Worst Films/Performances of the year. Everyone has their good and bad days, just like celebrities have good and bad performances. No one is perfect, and there are some movies where even the best actor just can’t make the part work. These are the actors I decided to highlight for what are considered their best and worst performances of their careers.
Sandra Bullock earned her Worst Actress Razzie for her role as Mary Magdalene Horowitz in All About Steve on March 6, 2010. The next day, March 7, was the day she won her Best Actress Oscar for her role as Leigh Anne Tuohy in The Blind Side. Celebrities often get redemptions, but not that quickly!
Eddie Redmayne earned his Best Actor Oscar for his brilliant performance as the late physicist Dr. Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything on February 22, 2015. Five days later, on February 27, he received his Worst Supporting Actor Razzie for his role as Balem Abrasax in Jupiter Ascending.
Halle Berry was one of the top celebrities of the ’90s and early 2000s. Halle Berry earned her Best Actress Oscar for her role as Letitia Musgrove in Monster’s Ball on March 24, 2002; twenty years later, Halle Berry is still the first and only black woman to win Best Actress. Three years later on February 26, Berry received her Worst Actress Razzie for her role as Patience Phillips/Catwoman in Catwoman; she brought her Oscar to the Razzie Awards and on stage during her acceptance speech.
Kevin Kline earned his Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his performance as Otto West in the comedy A Fish Called Wanda on March 29, 1989. Many years later, on March 25, 2000, he received his Razzie for Worst Screen Couple for his role as Artemus Gordon in Wild Wild West (his co-recipient will be appearing on this list a little bit later).
Nicole Kidman earned her Best Actress Oscar for her role as Virginia Woolf in The Hours on March 23, 2003. Three years later on March 4, Kidman received her Razzie for Worst Screen Couple alongside Will Ferrel for her role as Isabel Bigelow/Samatha Stephens in Bewitched.
Will Smith earned her Worst Screen Couple Razzie alongside Kevin Kline for his role as James T. West in Wild Wild West on March 25, 2000. It took 22 years, three total Best Actor nominations, and one Oscar controversy (we already know what this is), but on March 27, Smith won his Best Actor Oscar for her role as Richard Williams in King Richard.
Kim Basinger earned her Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role as Lynn Bracken in L.A. Confidential on March 23, 1998. Almost twenty years later on March 3, Basinger received her Razzie for Worst Supporting Actress for her role as Elena Lincoln in Fifty Shades Darker.
Jared Leto is one of the most polarizing celebrities working today. He received his Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his performance as trans woman Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club on March 2, 2014. He received his Worst Supporting Actor Razzie this year on March 24 for his role as Paulo Gucci in House of Gucci. If I had to make a prediction, I would say he’s in the running next year for Worst Actor for Morbius; we’ll see what happens!
