In the Madea movie he appears in wig, dress and body padding as his wise-cracking, gun-toting alter ego.
The Razzies also nominated Perry for worst director for “Good Deeds” and “Madea’s Witness Protection” and Perry and “his drag getup” for worst screen couple. Ouch. The Razzies really don’t like him, do they? (In case there’s any doubt, note how the Razzies site repeatedly refers to “Madea’s Witless Protection.”)
The Razzies, which release their picks just before the annual Oscar nods come out, are satirical awards meant to “dishonor” what the outfit’s nominating committee believes are the worst films and worst performances of the year. Here’s a link to their entire list of nominees.
In other Atlanta-centric Razzies news, Jennifer Lopez and Brooklyn Decker each earned worst supporting actress nominations for their roles in “What To Expect When You’re Expecting,” which was filmed in and set in Atlanta.
Also earning a worst screen couple nomination was “any combination of two cast members from ‘Jersey Shore,’” from “The Three Stooges,” which was filmed here but not set here. The “Jersey Shore” crew shows up toward the end of the movie, playing themselves but not paired off in any way. Looks like the Razzie folks were just having fun by throwing in Snooki an’nem.
