Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction had led the field with seven nominations
A faith-based comedy about the true meaning of Christmas was the big winner at the annual Razzie Awards.
Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas won four awards, including worst picture and worst actor, at Saturday night’s 35th Golden Raspberry Awards ceremony.
The tongue-in-cheek show, which celebrates movie-making mediocrity, took place a short walk from the venue for Sunday’s Academy Awards.
Razzie winners, who rarely turn up, get a $4.79 gold-spray-painted trophy.
Saving Christmas won worst picture, worst actor, worst screenplay and worst screen combo – for former Growing Pains star Kirk Cameron “and his ego”.
“This is a vanity project that Kirk Cameron put together”, Razzie founder John Wilson told BBC Radio 5 live after the ceremony.
“It’s about on the level of a super 8 movie from when I was a kid. It has no cinematic value at all.”
The worst supporting actress prize went to Megan Fox for the reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
