That same weekend, Melissa McCarthy won a Razzie for the worst actress, she won an Oscar for Best Actress.
The razzies have been awarded by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation for 39 years, and McCarthy is a good company. Eleven other actors were simultaneously nominated as the best and the worst, including 1993 Jack Nicholson, Alec Baldwin 2004, Sandra Bullock 2010 and Eddie Redmayne 2016, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Only two have ever been nominated for the same role as best / worst: James Coco lost both his Razzie and Oscar nominations for his scenes in "Only When I Laugh" (1982), as did Amy Irving (1984) for "Yentl". McCarthy bought her Razzie for terrible performances as Connie Edwards in "The Happytime Murders," an adult puppet killer comedy, and Deanna in "Life of the Party" about a newly divorced mother who returns to college. Her Oscar nomination refers to her starring role in "Can You Ever Forgive Me," based on Lee Israel's life as a celebrity counterfeiter.
McCarthy also took a Razzie for this acting job, even though he was in the category "Salvation," which is a good sign for Sunday's Oscars.
Razzie winners, if you can call them that, receive golden raspberry statues for their lack of achievement.
Will Ferrell and John. C Reilly's "Holmes & Watson" brought the fruits for the worst picture and three more categories.
McCarthy beat Jennifer Garner in Peppermint, Amber Heard in London Fields, Helen Mirren in Winchester, and Amanda Seyfried in The Clapper, according to reports.
McCarthy received her first Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress in 201
