Burt Reynolds’ single Oscar nomination came from Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Boogie Nights.” However, this famous actor doesn’t have much positive to say about the movie, saying in an interview with Conan O’Brien that it just wasn’t his kind of film.
It took the producers approaching him for the role a total of eight times before he finally said yes. He didn’t win the Oscar, but he did get plenty of other hardware for his acting in this popcorn flick. He also had some criticism of director Paul Thomas Anderson, calling the work unoriginal. In fact, he seemed to have hated Anderson and flatly refused to work with him on “Magnolia.”
Viola Davis — “The Help”
“The Help” was met with critical acclaim, and Viola Davis got an Oscar nomination for her performance as a 1960s housemaid. However, recent events have prompted people to analyze the movie again, including Viola Davis herself.
The movie is certainly entertaining, but Davis feels that it didn't actually tell enough of the truth. It was showing what it was like for people living like the character she played, but it seems more like an academic lesson than something that was actually about the people.
Jessica Alba — “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer”
Jessica Alba appeared as Susan Storm, the invisible woman, in two films. While the first, “Fantastic Four,” was positive, she didn't enjoy the sequel as much. The bad taste in her mouth was, according to her, because it seemed like the director was just interested in her looking pretty – insulting, especially for an actress that was as capable as Alba.
In fact, the entire experience was so poor for Alba that she considered giving up acting for good after the film but decided to stick with it, going on to make much more, such as “The Eye.”
Sylvester Stallone — “Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot”
Stallone is famous for his role of Rocky the boxer and plenty of other great parts, but “Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot” is definitely not one of his better choices.
Plenty of other people agreed – he won a Golden Razzie for Worst Actor. He's gone on record saying that the film is maybe one of the worst films in the entire solar system, including productions from other planets.
Arnold Schwarzenegger — “Red Sonja”
The big muscle man who told everyone he would be back in the “Terminator” movies has been in lots of schlocky action flicks, but few of them are worse than “Red Sonja.”
Arnold had gone on record saying that it was the worst film he had ever made and that when he was a father of young children, he would threaten the tots with having to watch the movie if they misbehaved. Apparently, they didn't act up too much. The film was nominated for three Razzies and won one, which was Worst New Star, won by Brigitte Nielson.
