It goes without saying, but the Rock is the coolest dude on the planet. On March 4th, he finally got his gold, no not an Oscar but a Razzie.
On March 4th, the Rock posted a video on his Instagram announcing that his movie Baywatch had won the Razzie award for “The Razzie Nominee So Rotten You Loved It.” Everyone has those movies that you know are terrible, but for some reason, you can’t help but love them. Looks like the prestigious Razzies have finally decided to acknowledge this particular sect of movies by introducing this brand new award for 2018.
The Razzies are the annual awards given to the worst movies of the year, as well acting performances and screenplays. Baywatch went up against The Emoji Movie, Fifty Shades Darker, The Mummy and Transformers: The Last Knight in its category. Looks like, despite people’s reactions to it, Baywatch eventually grew on people. The Rock knows how to make blockbuster films better than anyone, and while they may not always be the best-reviewed movies, they always seem to crush at the box office.
While actors and actresses may not always be thrilled to receive a Razzie, the Rock took the news in stride saying: “Look we made Baywatch with the best intentions and it didn’t work out like that, but I humbly and graciously accept my Razzie and I thank you critics and thank you fans.” How can you possibly dislike a dude who accepts an award for a bad movie like that?
Everyone went into Baywatch knowing that it wasn’t going to be a hit with the critics. They were aiming for something like the 21 Jump Street revival that everyone loved, but clearly, this one fell short.
