‘Cats’ movie dominates Razzie Award, wins worst film, screenplay, director
On Monday the Razzie Awards for the worst movies of 2019 dominated the movie musical ‘Cats’ , winning six trophies including worst film, screenplay and director. The results capped a dismal performance for the large screen adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit stage show Cats.
Judi Dench, Taylor Swift and Idris Elba, who were the leading cast of the movie were costumed in digitally-produced fur, was ridiculed by critics and proved a box office flop, taking in only $70 million (£57.10 million).
The ironic Razzies, or Golden Raspberries award, were created in 1980 as an antidote to Hollywood’s awards season. Nominees were announced in February, each day before the Oscars, the very best honours within the film industry.
Razzie nominees and winners are voted for online by around 1,100 Razzie members from quite twenty-four countries, who check in online and pay a $40 membership fee. The six Razzie awards for Cats included supporting actor wins for James Corden and Rebel Wilson. Tom Hooper was named worst director.
