Donald Trump bags Razzie's ' Worst Actor' nomination for appearing as himself
Donald Trump can now add Razzie nominee to his list of credentials. He was recently recognized by the award-giving body for his worst performance of himself in not just one but two films.
Coinciding with the release of this year’s Oscar nominations, the Golden Raspberry Awards, also known as the Razzie’s has released its nominees which include President Donald Trump.
The notorious award-giving body which recognizes the worst films and performances every year nominated Trump for worst actor in his portrayal of himself in the documentaries, “Death of a Nation” and “Fahrenheit 11/9.” He was also nominated for worst screen combo for portraying himself and "his self-perpetuating pettiness" in the two films.
Trump would be impressed to know he’ll be competing with A-list stars John Travolta for “Gotti,” Johnny Depp for “Sherlock Holmes,” Will Ferrell for “Holmes and Watson,” and Bruce Willis for “Death Wish.”

THE ACADEMY'S CONTROVERSIAL HOST
