10 Worst Supporting Actress RAZZIE Nominees
Sometimes little girls don't always get to dream of being the bride. They have to settle for bridesmaid status and the same goes for actresses.
As the Golden Raspberry (RAZZIE) Awards celebrate its 35th Anniversary this year, these hard working supporting actresses have nothing to be ashamed of. They've either "won" or have been nominated multiple times over the last three and a half decades.
While some have been nominated as Worst Actress time and again, being in a supporting role should take some of the pressure off of the lead actors. Sometimes it's a thankless job, but someone has to do it.
This list is a compilation of how many times each actress was nominated in this category. They could have been nominated (or "won") in other categories, but these are the ones who have shined brighter than the Razzie trophy itself.
For a complete list of nominees and "winners" (there are no losers here) click on the link following the list.
10) Sofia Coppola (1990)
Having "won" two Razzie's for The Godfather III (Worst Supporting Actress and Worst New Star) Coppola would again find herself on the Worst Supporting Actress list for 1999's Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace.
Coppola has switched gears and won an Oscar in 2004 for Best Writing Original Screenplay and was also nominated the same year for Best Director and Best Picture all for Lost in Translation.
9) Amy Irving (1981)
Irving's first nomination (and "win") was for Honeysuckle Rose.
In 1984 she was nominated as Worst Supporting Actress for Yentl and nominated that same year for an Oscar. She's also been nominated for two Golden Globes and a Grammy, but everyone will always remember her as sympathetic Sue Snell from the original Carrie (and she reprised her role in The Rage: Carrie 2) and as Steven Spielberg's first wife.
8) Diana Scarwid (1982)
On March 31, 1981, when Razzie founder John Wilson was throwing his Oscar party (and the night the Razzie's were born) Scarwid was an Oscar nominee.
Three hundred and sixty three days later she would "win" the Razzie for Worst Supporting Actress in Mommie Dearest.
Scarwid would again be nominated in 1984 for Strange Invaders and in 1990 as Worst New Star of the Decade (for Mommie Dearest, Psycho III and Strange Invaders).
7) Paris Hilton (2006)
Nominated four times from 2006 to 2010, the hotel heiress has "won" in three of the categories she's been nominated in.
She's "won" Worst Supporting Actress twice (in 2006 for House of Wax and in 2008 for Repo! The Generic Opera). Other Razzie "wins" include Worst Screen Couple and Worst Actress for The Hottie & the Nottie (2008) and Worst Actress of the Decade in 2010.
6) Kelly Preston (2001)
Mrs. Travolta has been nominated twice for Worst Supporting Actress and "won" the dishonor for 2000s Battlefield Earth. Other nominations include 2004's Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat and 2010s Old Dogs. She has no other nominations to her credit.
5) Daryl Hannah (1988)
Everyone's favorite mermaid (before Ariel) had some pretty good credits up to 1987's Wall Street for which she "won" the Razzie for Worst Supporting Actress. Tied with Kelly Preston for one "win" and two nominations, Hannah gets this slot due to alphabetical order. Her previous nominations in this category are for High Spirits (1989) and Two Much (1997).
4) Sean Young (1992)
Young was very busy "winning" Worst Actress and Worst Supporting Actress Razzie's for 1991's A Kiss Before Dying. Her dual role in the film earned her the dishonors. She would be nominated again in this category two more times, along with being nominated twice as Worst Actress.
With seven nominations under her belt, the final nomination would also place her as Worst Screen Couple (with Tim Daly) for Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde.
3) Faye Dunaway (1994)
Sure Dunaway's won an Oscar, but if there's an Oscar "curse" then she's fallen under it.
Prior to accepting supporting roles, Dunaway was nominated four times in the Worst Actress category (with a "win" for Mommie Dearest). However, her first supporting role and "win" under the Worst Supporting Actress category was in 1993's The Temp. Since that "win" she has received two other nominations in this category.
2) Madonna (1990)
Up to this point in her career you had to ask yourself: does she want to be an actress or a singer?
This was the year she first received a Worst Supporting Actress nomination for Bloodhounds of Broadway and she would go on to "win" two Worst Supporting Actress Razzie's for 1995's Four Rooms and 2002's Die Another Day.
By the time she had been nominated in the supporting category she had already been dishonored in the Worst Actress category.
1) Carmen Electra (2005)
Electra has the distinct dishonor of having been the most nominated Worst Supporting Actress in the Razzie's 35 year history, yet has only "won" once.
Starting in 2005 for Starsky and Hutch, Electra has also been nominated for five consecutive years in a row. While she didn't "win" the first time at bat, she lost out in 2006 to Paris Hilton but was finally "bestowed" a $4.95 Razzie for her performances in the 2006 films Date Movie and Scary Movie 4 at the 2007 ceremony.
She would also lose again in 2008 and 2009.
