Donald Trump Nominated for Razzie Award For Worst Performance in a Leading Role

Donald Trump has been nominated for two Golden Raspberry Awards for his “performances” in two documentaries this year.

The Golden Raspberries, also known as the Razzie Awards, is an annual award show celebrating the year's worst on-screen talent, performances and films. Donald Trump has been announced as a nominee for worst actor for his roles as himself in Dinesh D'Souza's Death of a Nation  and Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 11/9, as well as Worst Screen Combo alongside his “Self Perpetuating Pettiness” for the same two movies.

Trump is up against Johnny Depp, Will Ferrell, John Travolta, and Bruce Willis on the worst actor category for their roles in Sherlock Gnomes, Holmes & Watson, Gotti and Death Wish respectively.

The president will be hoping to add to his Razzie award for Worst Supporting Actor which he won in 1991 for his cameo role in Ghosts Can’t Do It when the winners of the 39th annual Razzie Awards are announced on February 23.

Elsewhere, First Lady Melania Trump is also recognized in the worst supporting actress category for the role of herself in Fahrenheit 11/9. President Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway is also nominated as herself in the same category after also appearing in Moore’s documentary.

Overall, Kevin Connolly’s movie Gotti about the notorious New York crime boss John Gotti, the Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly comedy Holmes & Watson, D’Souza’s conservative documentary Death of a Nation and the Melissa McCarthy puppet-based comedy The Happytime Murders lead the way in teams of nominations, all with six each.
