The past year's worst performances and films have been acknowledged in the 2019 Razzie Awards.

Two of the top gongs went to Donald Trump, for Worst Actor and Worst Screen Combo, for his "roles" in Fahrenheit 11/9 and Death of a Nation. He plays himself in both films.

The Worst Supporting Actress gong went to American pollster Kellyanne Conway, who also plays herself in Fahrenheit 11/9.

Melissa McCarthy, meanwhile, goes home with the prize for Worst Actress, for her role in The Happytime Murders and Life of the Party, in the same year she's nominated for an Oscar for her stellar performance in Can You Ever Forgive Me?. The Razzies haven't overlooked this latest gig, however, and also gave the actress the Redeemer Award for her "more complex role".

Billionaire Boys Club, starring disgraced actor Kevin Spacey, was given the Barry L Bumstead Award. The drama-thriller received a paltry $287 at box office in its first two days, according to The Hollywood Reporter. This potentially means just 31 people paid to see it, or, as the Razzies put it, they were "scammed" into seeing it.

The big winner (or loser) on the night was Holmes & Watson, the mystery / crime / comedy starring Will Ferrell and John C Reilly, which received four awards, including Worst Picture, Worst Director and Worst Supporting Actor.
