— Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson did not win an Academy Award on Sunday night, but he was still excited to bring home a different kind of “honor.”
The pro wrestler-turned-movie star went on Twitter to share that news that he won a Golden Raspberry Award, Metro reported. “Razzies” are awarded to the worst movies of the year in Hollywood, and “Baywatch” -- which starred Johnson -- won dubious honors.
“Here’s the cool thing,” Johnson said in a video he posted on Twitter. “The movie was so bad, they actually had to create a new category, I’m not kidding, that category, the new category is A Movie So Rotten You Eventually Fell in Love With It.”
Johnson thanked his critics and fans for the award.
“Look, we made ‘Baywatch’ with the best intentions, and it didn’t work out like that, but I humbly and graciously accept my Razzie and I thank you critics and thank you fans,” Johnson said in his video.
“Baywatch” also starred Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario and Kelly Rohrbach. David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson, who starred in the original television series that ran from 1989 to 2001, had cameo roles.
It’s the #Oscars and Hollywood’s biggest night!— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) March 4, 2018
So let me go ahead and take this “L” right on the chin for Baywatch.
Win some, lose some.. but hey, that’s the way love goes. @RazzieAwards #Baywatch💩🥪 #AndTheWinnerLosesOn pic.twitter.com/2ICyzfVHSV

— Actor Robert De Niro, a vocal Trump opponent, dropped two of F-bombs on live television at the Tony Awards in June.
His profanity-laced tirade about President Donald Trump was received by a standing ovation from the audience at the Tony Awards.
» TRENDING: Robert De Niro blasts Trump in bleeped comments
“I’m gonna say one thing: f—- Trump!” he said, waving his two fists in the air. “It’s no longer down with Trump, it’s f—- Trump!”
De Niro has criticized Trump multiple times, including during opening nights at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival in April. De Niro isn’t the first celebrity to insult a president. Here are five other times celebrities feuded with Trump:
1. Bette Midler
Bette Midler has also been vocal about her dislike of Trump in the past. The two celebrities have traded insults on Twitter.
I never liked @BetteMidler's persona or singing and haven't heard her name in years.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 28, 2012
60 Shades of Stupidity: Ten extra points for the terrible dye job someone talked him into. http://t.co/UjTteuv2— Bette Midler (@BetteMidler) October 26, 2012
2. Meryl Streep
The actress called out Trump during a speech at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards, highlighting the time he made fun of a disabled reporter. Trump responded on Twitter.
Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn't know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 9, 2017
Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time, I never "mocked" a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him.......— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 9, 2017
"groveling" when he totally changed a 16 year old story that he had written in order to make me look bad. Just more very dishonest media!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 9, 2017
3. Martha Stewart
In an open letter, Trump called Stewart “terrible” and said “she “lacked the mood, temperament, and just about everything else a show needs for success.” She had her own spinoff show of The Apprentice, which Trump said was less successful than his own. She called his comments “mean-spirited.”
After Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z performed at a Hillary Clinton political rally, Trump critiqued their singing. “The language is so bad. As they were singing? Singing, right? Talking? Was it talking or singing? I don’t know. But the language – by both – but the language was so bad, that many of the people left. By the time Hillary got up, there was nobody there,” Trump said.
In 2011, Rihanna cancelled a performance at Trump charity event due to illness. When she was seen the day after the charity event at the NBA All-Star game, Trump said her cancellation was insulting. “But for Rihanna to go to the All-Star Game and perform after she told us she was sick, that is just a lack of respect,” he said.

— It’s been 14 years since the Parr family was on the big screen as “The Incredibles,” and it seems like fans have been waiting for the sequel as “Incredibles 2” crushed box office records, taking in an estimated $180 million in its opening domestic weekend, CNN reported.
But the film is now coming with a warning for those who suffer from epilepsy or other conditions, USAToday reported.
There is a segment of the movie that shows bright flashing lights used by the villain Screenslaver, USAToday reported.
There were warnings on social media from theater goers after last week’s premiere of “Incredibles 2” alerting fans with epilepsy, migraines or chronic illness that the mind control scenes could trigger seizures.
HEALTH ALERT I haven’t seen this mentioned in a lot of places, but the new Incredibles 2 movie (#incredibles2) is filled with tons of strobe/flashing lights that can cause issues for people with epilepsy, migraines, and chronic illness. This thread is spoiler free— Veronica Lewis (@veron4ica) June 15, 2018
The Epilepsy Foundation also issued a warning.
On Friday, Walt Disney Pictures took it a step further, requesting that theaters showing the film warn viewers about the scene, USAToday reported.
A theater supervisor for a Los Angeles AMC theater location told USAToday he has never had an alert like that before from a studio.
