Criticism

On January 31, 2019, the ceremony was accused of rigging the vote tallies for its nominees. For example, Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades Freed) and Kevin Spacey (Billionaire Boys Club) received enough votes for Worst Actor, but neither were included on the final nominee list.[4]

The ballot itself was also heavily criticized for overlook critically panned films[5] and the nomination and win of non-acting performances for documentary stock footage.[6]

Despite mix-to-poor reviews, the awards was criticized for nominating The Meg in the Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel as a rip-off of Steven Spielberg's film Jaws despite having nothing to do with the film besides having a shark as an antagonist.[7]
