6 Actors Who Have Won Both Oscars And Razzies

As long as we're on the subject of Razzies, here's a nifty little piece from Mental Floss.

"The day before the Academy Awards are given out, there’s another awards ceremony to hand out a not-so-prestigious statue: the Golden Raspberry, given out to the worst stuff Hollywood has thrown our way in the previous year. Occasionally, the Razzie and Oscar worlds collide when some of the best thespians in the world star in very bad movies. In the case of Sandra Bullock, those worlds collided on the very same weekend. The other actors received the awards years or even decades apart from one another. Here’s the small list of double 'winners'.”

KEVIN COSTNER

Costner is one of the all-time Razzie greats with three wins and seven nominations.

Oscar: Dances with Wolves (Best Director, 1990)

Razzie: Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991); Wyatt Earp (1994); The Postman (1997) (Worst Actor for each)



LIZA MINNELLI

Oscar: Cabaret (Best Actress, 1972)

Razzie: Arthur 2 and Rent-a-Cop (combined Worst Actress award, 1988)


ROBERTO BENIGNI

Oscar: Life Is Beautiful (Best Actor, 1999)

Razzie: Pinocchio (Worst Actor, 2002)


HALLE BERRY

Oscar: Monster's Ball (Best Actress, 2002)

Razzie: Catwoman (Worst Actress, 2002)

Berry accepted her Razzie in person because, she said, her mother always taught her that if you can’t be a good loser, you can’t be a good winner.


SANDRA BULLOCK

Oscar: The Blind Side (Best Actress, 2010)

Razzie: All About Steve (Worst Actress, 2010)

Upon hearing that she was nominated for a Worst Actress Razzie for All About Steve in 2010, Bullock promised to accept in person if she was unlucky enough to win. She won, of course, and actually left a charity event she was at to go pick up her award, even providing the DVD for everyone in the audience. The sting of Sandra’s Golden Raspberry win was pretty fleeting, though—less than 24 hours later, she accepted a Best Actress Oscar for The Blind Side


LAURENCE OLIVIER

Oscar: Hamlet (Best Actor, 1948)

Razzie: The Jazz Singer (Worst Supporting Actor, 1980)

Razzie Award Winners Of The Day

News: Man Who Bought 34th Anniversary Reissue Of Fleetwood Mac's 'Rumours' Feeling Like Real Idiot After Passing Display For 35th Anniversary Edition

Man Who Bought 34th Anniversary Reissue Of Fleetwood Mac's 'Rumours' Feeling Like Real Idiot After Passing Display For 35th Anniversary Edition

ENID, OK—Longtime Fleetwood Mac fan Michael Gastin reportedly felt like a complete moron this week after walking by a retail display for the 35th anniversary remastered CD box set of the band’s celebrated 1977 album
Rumours, released less than a year after he purchased the Rumours 34th anniversary edition. 


“Goddamn it, I can’t believe I wasted my money on the 34th anniversary reissue when I could have just waited a little longer and gotten an awesome 35th anniversary re-release,” the embarrassed fan said after observing that the deluxe 35th anniversary edition of the album features an expanded booklet with photographs, essays, and interviews about the making of Rumours not included in the commemorative booklet packaged with the 34th anniversary deluxe box set. 

“And look at this thing—it’s huge! It’s like twice as big as the 32nd and 33rd anniversary editions combined.” 

At press time, Gastin had reportedly opted to purchase the album due to its inclusion of an early jam session that reportedly sheds light on the little-documented tensions between band members Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham.
