PARTING SHOT

It’s awards season over in the US. While many actors dream of winning an academy award, there’s one gong they’d rather not receive and that’s the Razzie – a competition which hands out prizes for Worst Movie/Worst Actor etc.

The Razzies’ crosshairs were squarely on Holmes & Watson this year.

It nabbed not only the Worst Picture award but also a Worst Supporting Actor prize for John C Reilly, a Worst Actor nomination for Will Ferrell, a Worst Screen Combo for the two of them (for “trashing two of literature’s most beloved characters”), a Worst Director award for Etan Cohen, and a Worst Remake, Ripoff or Sequel prize for the film.

Not ideal.
