Machine Gun Kelly ‘Wins’ Award For Worst Director

Published on:

It couldn’t have happened to two more deserving guys. 

The recipients of Hollywood’s least coveted awards, The Golden Raspberries, were announced earlier this weekend to much fanfare.

In one of the least surprising turns in cinematic history, the rapper turned pop-punk star Machine Gun Kelly and Mod Sun both took home the award for Worst Director at the 43rd annual event in recognition for their work in Good Mourning. The film surrounds celebrity London Clash (MGK, in one of his more creative turns of phrases) who believes that he just got dumped by the love of his life via text message.

It’s a brilliant setup and serves as the ideal vehicle for the profound meditation on grief, loss, acceptance, and healing that only true visionaries like Machine Gun Kelly and Mod Sun dare bring to this undeserving world. Just kidding! It’s terrible!

On Rotten Tomatoes, Good Mourning currently holds a perfect 0 percent approval rating with critic Natalia Keogan of Paste Magazine writing: “In the current barren wasteland that is the stoner comedy landscape, this laziness is nothing short of inexcusable.” After a screening for critics, YouTube’s Amanda the Jedi commented: “Thankfully I didn’t have to pay for the tickets to this downfall.”

Given the fact that Good Mourning was nominated in almost all categories, MGK and Mod Sun could have done much worse. The film dodged the humiliating victory of winning Worst Picture, Worst Actor (MGK), Worst Supporting Actor (Pete Davidson), Worst Screen Couple (MGK and Mod Sun), and Worst Screenplay.

Machine Gun Kelly wasn’t the only musician to take a hit at this year’s Razzies. Receiving five nominations for his show-stopping portrayal of the least threatening vampire since the Count first graced Sesame Street in Morbius, Thirty Seconds to Mars leader and everyone’s favorite Joker of all time Jared Leto won Worst Actor.
