Razzie Awards Call Out Kevin Spacey in Hilarious ‘In Memoriam’ Segment

This weekend, The Razzie Awards produced an “In Memoriam” video as part of their 38th annual Golden Raspberry Awards, which recognizes the worst of the worst of the year in film.

Usually, awards shows air an “In Memoriam” segment to eulogize the industry’s power players who passed away during the year. But the Razzies, in true Razzie form, the decided to commemorate the sexual predators whose careers are now dead. Among those in montage is Kevin Spacey, who was accused of sexual harassment by multiple men, including actor Anthony Rapp, a minor at the time of the alleged incident.

The segment featured Harvey Weinstein prominently, but also highlighted Bill Cosby, James Franco, Casey Affleck, Steven Seagal, Donald Trump, Woody Allen, and Louis C.K. “Very sorry,” the video said, “but we won’t be missing youor your kind.”

Spacey was also called out at IFC’s 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards for his poor public apology. Co-host Nick Kroll joked, “I don’t remember doing this, but I know I was drunk when I did it. Also, in a Keyser Soze-like twist, I’m coming out of the closet. So, to sum it up, I’m connecting being gay with assaulting a minor. And now to let the congratulations notes roll in.’”

After allegations against Spacey came to light, he was fired as the lead and Executive Producer of Netflix’s flagship drama, House of Cards, in November. He was also fired from the upcoming film, Gore, and his scenes were subsequently removed from Ridley Scott’s Oscar-nominatedAll The Money In The World.

On Sunday, a new House of Cards teaser aired during the Academy Awards, featuring Robin Wright as the terse and tough Claire Underwood. The clip from the final season depicted Claire in the Oval Office quipping, “We’re just getting started.”
