Razzie Awards: Sia's 'Music' Wins 3 as Rudy Giuliani Nabs Two for 'Borat' Cameo

Merrick Morton
The top prize of worst picture went to MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell's 'Absolute Proof' election-fraud film with the annual celebration of cinematic lowlights also giving a special honor to 2020 as "The Worst Calendar Year Ever!"

Just months after Sia's feature directorial debut Music shocked awards observers by landing two Golden Globe nominations, the poorly-reviewed film has secured the dubious distinction of topping the 2021 Razzie Awards, celebrating the worst in film.

Music, which ultimately didn't win anything at the Golden Globes, won three Razzie awards: worst actress (Kate Hudson), supporting actress (Maddie Ziegler) and worst director (Sia).

The film generated controversy months before its release as the musician chose to cast Maddie Ziegler as an autistic girl instead of an actor on the spectrum.

And while Glenn Close, who was nominated for both the supporting actress Razzie and Oscar for her role in Hillbilly Elegy, didn't win at the Razzies, another Oscar-nominated project did: Borat Subsequent Moviefilm.

The Sacha Baron Cohen-starring sequel, which is up for two Oscars, won two Razzie Awards, both for Rudy Giuliani's headline-making cameo.

The Razzie Awards got political with the prizes for worst actor and picture, recognizing MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell's role in his election-fraud film, Absolute Proof, which claimed there was an "unprecedented level of voter fraud" in the 2020 presidential election in which Joe Biden defeated incumbent Donald Trump.

Erotic Polish film 365 Days won worst screenplay and Robert Downey Jr. starrer Dolittle won worst remake, rip-off or sequel.

In addition to these awards, the Razzies made 2020's status as the "The Worst Calendar Year Ever!" official by giving last year a Governors' Award for its horrible achievements.
