Which Sci-Fi Movie Swept The Razzie Awards?

Chronicles of Riddick
Plan 9 From Outer Space
Battlefield Earth
Where Did The "Music" Astronauts Heard On The Dark Side Of The Moon Come From?

Answer: Battlefield Earth

The Razzies are a mock-award given out at the same time as the Oscars; they serve as a sort of anti-Oscar with categories like Worst Director, Worst Actor, and so on. For the 21st annual Razzie Awards in 2001, a single movie swept the award show. Jon Travolta’s Battlefield Earth adaptation won the Razzie for Worst Picture, Actor, Screen Couple, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Director, and Screenplay.

The award for Worst Screen Couple had to sting the most, as it was awarded not just to a single pairing but to “Battlefield Earth – John Travolta and Anyone Sharing the Screen with Him.”
