The Angels – Hollywood stars tremble every year for fear of being nominated. For ex-politicians to receive the dreaded “Golden Raspberry” trophy for the worst films and actors of the year, however, is rather unusual.
He has now been given this dubious honor: The lawyer for former US President Donald Trump (74) and ex-Mayor of New York, Rudy Giuliani (76), is in two for his appearance in the satire “Borat Anschluss Moviefilm” Categories nominated.
The former New York mayor unwittingly took part in the film – he was lured into a hotel room and filmed by the creators under false pretenses.
The scene shows Giuliani in a compromising situation. He can be seen flirting with a young woman on a hotel bed who posed as a reporter. Apparently he puts his hand in his pants.
Giuliani had described the scene as “pure fake” even before the film was released. On the online service Twitter, the 76-year-old wrote that he had just tucked his shirt into his pants and that at no point did he “behave inappropriately”.
Together with Giuliani, who was also nominated in the category “worst supporting actor”, the Bulgarian actress Maria Bakalova beckons the “Golden Raspberry” for the “worst screen couple” in the satire.
The “Golden Raspberries” have been awarded since 1981 – as a declared counterpart to the Oscars, which are traditionally awarded one evening later in Hollywood. Donald Trump also already has two “raids” at home. The winners almost never appear in person to pick up the Schmäh trophy.
