Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Accepts Razzie Award For 'Baywatch' With Pride

Close

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson accepts his Golden Raspberry award, also known as the Razzie, with grace and composure for his recent film Baywatch.

Critics scored Baywatch rather poorly with 18 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and an overall rating of 5.6 in IMDB. The film won The Razzie Nominee So Rotten You Loved It, a new category created exclusively to accommodate Baywatch's qualifications.

Following the news of his movie receiving the Razzie award, The Rock posted a video congratulating fellow recipients and thanking his fans.

"It's Oscar Sunday, I'm super pumped and very proud of my buddies who are nominated. I'm pulling for you guys to bring home the gold," said The Rock.

The Rock also explained the reason Baywatch was listed as one of the worst movies this year.

"We made Baywatch with the best of intentions. It didn't work out like that, but I humbly and graciously accept my Razzie. And I thank you critics, and I thank you fans," said the 45-year-old The Mummy star.

2018 League of Razzies

While Baywatch was given a separate category for being so rotten that fans eventually loved it, other films have grabbed respective spots. The Emoji Movie  bagged the most number of Razzie awards this year, namely worst picture, worst screenplay, worst screen combo, and worst director for Tony Leondis.

With a production budget of $50 million, Emoji Movie earned $24.5 million on the opening weekend, and a total of $217.2 million on all domestic and foreign cinemas combined, according to Box Office Mojo.

Next on the list is Fifty Shades Freed, the last sequel of the E.L. James' film adaptation. Despite earning $345.9 million worldwide, the third installment of the Fifty Shades trilogy grabbed the second spot in the Razzies, with worst supporting actress award for Kim Basinger and worst sequel.

Meanwhile, Mel Gibson won the worst supporting actor for his portrayal of a rebellious father in Daddy's Home 2. Tyler Perry, who played a female role in Boo! A Madea Holloween received the worst actress award.

Rampage Rescheduled

In other news, Johnson's new motion picture Rampage is moved to another release date following the new schedule for Avengers: Infinity War. Warner Bros announced on Monday that the video game adaptation will be shown on April 13 from the original April 20.

Rampage's film adaptation features the story of three creatures, namely gorilla, crocodile, and wolf that wreak havoc in a city and the man who is bound to save the planet.
