Anti-gay Kirk Cameron and his ego up for Razzie award

Former Growing Pains actor and anti-gay activist Kirk Cameron is nominated for a Razzie ‘award’.

The 80s sitcom star turned religious mouthpiece is up for three accolades: Worst Picture for Saving Christmas, Worst Actor for the same film, and Worst Screen Combo where he and his ego have been nominated together.

Cameron has previously described homosexuality as ‘unnatural’, ‘detrimental’, and ‘ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization’.

Saving Christmas was Cameron’s attempt to ‘put the Christ’ back into the holiday. It was universally panned by critics, with New York Times’ Ben Kenigsberg describing his acting as ‘sounding so forced you half-expect the camera to pull back to reveal hostage takers’.

Described as the ‘Anti Oscars’, The Golden Raspberry awards or Razzies are awards given in recognition of the worst movies made.

Some of the nominations this include Transformers: Age of Distinction, which has racked up the highest number of nominations.

This year a new category has been introduced which will allow previous Razzie winners to rewarded, making up for past box office flops.

The Redeemer award nominees include Ben Affleck for Argo and Gone Girl, Jennifer Aniston for Cake, Mike Myers for Supermensch, Keanu Reeves for John Wick and Kristen Stewart for Camp X-Ray.
