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)

  1. I love it when actors are good enough to pick up their Razzies.

  2. Laurence Olivier was in "The Jazz Singer"? And was bad?
