“Gotti,” John Travolta and Kelly Preston Lead Razzie Award Nominees, Also Donald Trump, Melania Trump, Kellyanne Conway

Share

The Razzie Awards broke with tradition this year and nominated three real people who were in documentaries: Donald Trump, Melania Trump, and Kellyanne Conway. The latter two compete in Worst Supporting Actress.

“Gotti” led the nominations with Worst Picture, Worst Actor and Supporting Actress– married couple John Travolta and Kelly Preston. They are favored to win.

I do feel they left out Lars von Trier’s ultra violent “The House That Jack Built” from Worst Picture. That’s a snub. And the Louis C.K. movie “I Love You, Daddy” would have been nominated in all categories had it been released. A missed opportunity!
