'Cats' Is The Razzies "Worst Picture" At The 2020 Golden Raspberry Awards
Cats swept most of the major categories at the 2020 Golden Raspberry Awards. The ceremony was cancelled due to concerns about the coronavirus, but the Razzies still announced the winners in a new YouTube video. See the winners here.
The 2020 Golden Raspberry Awards were scheduled to take place on March 14. But due to the coronavirus outbreak, the award show instead chose to upload a YouTube video that announces their 2020 winners. The "Razzies" are the annual awards for the worst in film. Though the Razzies may seem like a mean-spirited event, many award nominees attend the ceremony each year and do so in good fun.

Cats movie: Officially the worst in film of 2019
Cats was widely panned following its release in 2019. But it attracted press and fascination for its inconsistencies and many odd creative decisions. Now, the team behind the film can move on after a long year of attention for the wrong reasons. But the adaptation of the popular stage musical will live on as a Razzie Worst Picture winner.
