Tyler Perry Gets Nod For Worst Screenplay, Worst Supporting Actor By Razzie Awards

Tyler Perry Gets Nod For Worst Screenplay, Worst Supporting Actor By Razzie Awards


He’s made it abundantly clear that he’s always hated portraying his beloved Madea character, but Mabel Simmons has been quite the moneymaker for Tyler Perry. For two decades, Perry has dressed up as the crass-yet-wise grandmother both on stage and the silver screen, and soon, Madea will be no more as Perry has shared he’s done with her altogether.

Perry’s Madea films and plays have helped rake in hundreds of millions of dollars for the media mogul, aiding in the ability for Perry to open his personally funded Atlanta studio. Madea may be a hit at the box office, but the Razzies consider Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral to be one of the worst films of the past year.

The 2020 Golden Raspberry Award nominations have been announced, and unlike the Oscars where the best are hailed, the Razzies highlight what they believe are the worst of the worst in film. Perry’s latest Madea flick takes home the most nods with five mentions: Worst Actress as Madea, twice in Worst Supporting Actor for his portrayals of Joe and Uncle Heathrow, Worst Screen Combo, and Worst Screenplay.

The Razzies are usually held just a day ahead of the Oscars, but things changed this year. “Due to the Oscars’ accelerated 2020 calendar, which has stressed out the entire industry and is about to ruin the holidays for everyone, we here at the upper echelons of the Razzie Organization have decided to avoid anxiety and set our own schedule this year,” the Razzies wrote on its website.
