The 2004 film Catwoman received multiple dishonors at the 25th Golden Raspberry Awards, including Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst Actress and Worst Screenplay. Halle Berry accepted her award for Worst Actress. Holding her Academy Award for her performance in Monster’s Ball in one hand and her Golden Raspberry Award trophy in the other, Berry said to the audience at the ceremony, “Thank you so much. I never in my life thought I would be up here. She parodied her performance when she accepted her Academy Award, and thanked the film’s director and her manager, “He loves me so much that he convinces me to do projects even when he knows that it is shit.”Screenwriter Michael Ferris also accepted his award, and in his speech thanked the Golden Raspberry Foundation for boosting Catwoman’s DVD sales. Julie Newmar, who played Catwoman in the Batman TV series, received that film’s Worst Picture award, and was told that she was the “best Catwoman”.
After her Worst Actress nomination for All About Steve (2010), Sandra Bullock expressed interest in coming up to pick up her award. She eventually won, and showed up stating “I didn’t realize that, in Hollywood, all you had to do was say you’d show up, and then you’d get the award. If I’d known that, I would have said I was appearing at the Oscars a long time ago.” Bullock also brought DVD copies of All About Steve to the audience, declaring that the voters should watch the movie to see if she was really the worst performer, implying the Razzie voters cast ballots for her just to see if she appeared at the ceremony. Bullock also said that winning Worst Screen Couple – along with Bradley Cooper – showed the voters did not watch the movie, since All About Steve is about a stalker and “that doesn’t really set up the premise for a loving couple”. Bullock also said she was escaping from a charity dinner with Jeffrey Katzenberg for the awards, and had to get there as soon as possible, “because you know, it’s Jeffrey Katzenberg and he can basically prevent me from ever working again”. John Wilson declared that her performance “was much better than the one you’re about to see on the DVD”. The following night, Bullock won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in The Blind Side.
