Squish! Donald and Melania Trump get pelted with Razzie Award nominations!
It’s been nearly three decades since past Razzie Award winner Donald Trump competed at Hollywood’s kudos for Worst of the Year, but now he has two new chances for more glory. When Razzie nominations were announced today, Trump landed bids for Worst Actor and Worst Screen Combo alongside “his self-perpetuating pettiness,” according to Razzies chief John Wilson. Trump’s real-life partner Melania nabbed a nomination for Worst Supporting Actress. Both are honored for portraying themselves in Dinesh D’Souza‘s “Death of a Nation” and Michael Moore‘s “Fahrenheit 11/9.”

In the battle over Worst Actor of the Year, Trump competes against Johnny Depp (voice in “Sherlock Gnomes”), Will Ferrell (“Holmes & Watson”), John Travolta (“Gotti”) and Bruce Willis (“Death Wish”).

Melania’s rivals are Kellyanne Conway (“Fahrenheit 11/9”), Marcia Gay Harden (“Fifty Shades Freed”), Kelly Preston (“Gotti”) and Jaz Sinclair (“Slender Man”).

Razzie Nominations Announced: Donald Trump Cited Multiple Times

With the Academy Award nominations being announced tomorrow, here’s something a little lighter as a momentary distraction. The Golden Raspberry Awards, also known as the Razzies, have announced their annual nominees. This “worst of” nominations list attempts to shine a light on the films and performances that were the opposite of high quality in a given year. For 2018, they’re at it again, with a new political wrinkle. This isn’t something to pay much attention to, but on the eve of the Oscars nominations, something silly like this is a change of pace, at least. Consider it an appetizer of sorts before the main course in the morning. This year, the Razzies were led by Gotti, which was “honored” with six nominations. Also taking in a half dozen nods was The Happytime Murders. In the top category of Worst Picture, those two movies were joined by Holmes and Watson,

Razzie Awards Nominate ‘Gotti,’ ‘Holmes & Watson,’ Donald Trump & More As Worst Film Industry Had To Offer Last Year

It would appear that the Razzie Awards had its fair share of terrible films to choose from last year. And as the nominees showcase, this year’s Razzies seems to be going across all genres and even venturing into the political realm to highlight the very worst that Hollywood had to offer last year.

Leading the way are films like “Gotti,” “The HappyTime Murders,” and “Death of a Nation,” as well as the non-actor President Donald J.

‘Holmes & Watson’ and ‘Gotti’ Lead 2019 Razzie Nominations for Worst Picture
If their dismal reviews wasn’t punishment enough, for the 39th year, the Razzie Awards seek to recognize the achievements of the worst movies of the year. And for 2019’s crop of nominees, John Travolta’s “Gotti” and Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly’s “Holmes & Watson” both received the “honor” of being nominated for Worst Picture of 2018.

Melissa McCarthy might be nominated for an Oscar on Tuesday morning, but on Monday morning, she scored a nomination for Worst Actress for both “The Happytime Murders” and “Life of the Party,” and the former also landed among the five Worst Picture nominees. The box office bomb “Robin Hood” and Helen Mirren’s “Winchester” rounded out the nominees.

Even the first family found a way into the nominees, with Donald Trump and Melania Trump both getting nominated for portraying themselves in the documentary “Fahrenheit 11/9” from Michael Moore. And unlike the Oscars,

Razzie Awards Nominations Are Out: Four Movies “Lead” In Best Of Worst Race
Gotti, The Happytime Murders, Holmes & Watson and Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary Death of a Nation tied for the most nominations for the Razzie Awards, the annual generally mean-spirited anti-Oscar list of the year’s worst movies.

Nominations in a total of 10 categories were unveiled Monday, with even Donald Trump (for his screen time in both Death of a Nation and Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9) and Kellyanne Conway (Fahrenheit 11/9) earning mentions.

The Worst Picture race this year features Gotti, The Happytime Murders and Holmes & Watson (all of which had six noms to lead the way with Nation), as well as Robin Hood and Winchester. Last year, The Emoji Movie “won” the category.

Celebrating John C. Reilly's Best Movie Roles

Mark Harrison Jan 11, 2019

We look at the eclectic career of one of Hollywood's most beloved character actors, John C. Reilly.

This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

As an actor, John C. Reilly is exceptionally difficult to pin down. The Academy Award-nominated actor has worked with filmmakers ranging from Paul Thomas Anderson to Judd Apatow. Currently in awards contention again for his turn as Oliver Hardy in Stan & Ollie, he’s always been brilliant at both comedic and dramatic roles.

Going at least as far back as Will Ferrell and Jack Black’s "A Comedian At The Oscars" number at the 2007 Academy Awards, Reilly’s formidable range has long been celebrated. How do we know that real actors can do both comedy and drama? John C. Reilly, that’s how. After all, he “chose to be in both Boogie and Talladega Nights!”

In addition to Stan & Ollie, you can

John C. Reilly Sees Laurel & Hardy as Biggest Influence on Comedy Duos

John C. Reilly Sees Laurel & Hardy as Biggest Influence on Comedy Duos
Many twenty-somethings today have never heard of Oliver Hardy and Stan Laurel. But they definitely know of Homer Simpson’s catchphrase “D’oh!,” which was inspired by a character in Laurel and Hardy films, and popular modern duos like Key and Peele. John C. Reilly, who played Hardy in Sony Classics’ comedy-drama “Stan & Ollie,” says contemporary comic duos owe everything to the iconic pair.

“From Abbott and Costello, Martin and Lewis, to Key and Peele, Mulaney and Kroll, all those guys owe something to Laurel and Hardy because they perfected that modern comedy duo act. And you can see echoes of their work in everything,” Reilly says. “Laurel and Hardy are the original contrast couple. They’re like salt and pepper, light and shadow, fat and skinny, Laurel and Hardy. They’re like yin and yang. There’s an eternal quality to them.”

Laurel and Hardy were known for their slapstick physical comedy,

Box Office: ‘Aquaman’ Swims to Third Straight Victory, Nears $1 Billion Globally
Leave it to Jason Momoa and his perfectly tousled man bun to dominate box office charts for the third straight weekend. “Aquaman” easily retained its No. 1 spot in North America, pulling in a solid $30 million for a domestic haul of $259 million.

The DC superhero adventure directed by James Wan has now crossed $940 million worldwide, making it Warner Bros. biggest comic-book title since “The Dark Knight Rises” amassed over $1 billion globally in 2012. If “Aquaman” continues at this pace, Arthur Curry could give Batman a run for his money. “Aquaman” generated another $56.2 million in foreign markets this weekend, bringing its international total to $681 million. The Atlantean blockbuster has already nabbed the distinction as DC’s highest-grossing title overseas, surpassing the record previously set by “The Dark Knight Rises” with $636 million.

With no new high-profile releases, “Aquaman” didn’t have much competition to maintain its reign in North America. The only newcomer was

Holmes & Watson Apparently Has Two Different Opening Scenes

One of the biggest bombs of 2018 was without a doubt Holmes & Watson. Though fans of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly were excited for the comic duo to team up once more for their third collaboration – following their great work in Talladega Nights and Step Brothers – the Sherlock Holmes spoof was trashed by vicious reviews from critics and found itself with lots of hate on social media from audiences.

Damning critical reviews and horrible reactions from viewers aside, though, what’s interesting about Holmes & Watson is that apparently, it has two different opening scenes. The one you likely saw features Holmes being bullied as a child and comforted by Watson, which kicks off their friendship. However, some users over on Reddit are reporting something totally different.

According to one individual, here’s what they saw in the opening minutes when they went to check out the film in theaters:

Holmes and Watson Opening Scene Mysteriously Changes, Is It the Mandela Effect?

Holmes & Watson continues to cause a stir online with a few people thinking that the Mandela Effect is happening in real time. Some social media users have reported seeing two different opening scenes for the controversial comedy, and now confusion is starting to spread. The movie has received mixed reactions at best and there have been reports of moviegoers walking out of the theater before the movie ends.

Aquaman” started off the new year swimmingly, dominating the domestic box office and clearing the $200 million mark in North America.

DC’s superhero tentpole collected $16.78 million on Tuesday, marking the fourth best New Year’s Day haul behind “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” ($34 million), “Avatar” ($25 million), and “Meet the Fockers” ($18 million).

Strong ticket sales signals good news for Warner Bros., who shelled out $200 million for “Aquaman” in anticipation that the Atlantean hero could steer their unwieldy comic-book universe into clearer waters.

Disney’s “Mary Poppins Returns” also reached a milestone, hitting $100 million at the domestic box office and $200 million globally.

Aquaman” capped off 2018 in style. DC’s superhero adventure will cross the $200 million mark at the domestic box office just a few hours after the ball dropped on the year. Its total now stands at $199.5 million.

Aquaman” — directed by James Wan and starring Jason Momoa — topped the charts in North America on New Year’s Eve, pulling in a healthy $10.1 million on Monday. The Atlantean adventurer’s hold on audiences is good news for Warner Bros., which has had mixed results with launching its interconnected series of DC movies. “Wonder Woman” was embraced by moviegoers and critics. From there the results have been a mixed bag. “Suicide Squad” and “Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice” did healthy business without being particularly beloved by the general public. That’s more than can be said for “Justice League,” a dud that ranked as a major miss both critically and commercially.
