The 2018 version of A Star Is Born exceeded all expectations and Lady Gaga’s performance is one of the best things about it. So to celebrate Gaga’s Award nominations and wins, the folk at BetWay have analysed both the Oscars and the Razzies to chart the performances of the artists who swapped stage for screen.

Below are a few facts and figures, plucked from the below infographic to help you paint the picture.

Seven artists have been nominated many times, including Will Smith who received Best Actor nods for Ali (2001) and Pursuit of Happyness (2006).



Cher was also nominated for Best Supporting Actress in Silkwood (1983)before winning Best Actress for her part in Moonstruck (1987).

Diana Ross earned a Best Actress nomination at the 1972 Oscars for playing Billie Holliday in Lady Sings the Blues.

Thirty-five musicians have received 55 Golden Raspberry nominations between them, with 10 of those winning 17 awards.

The worst offender on the list is Madonna, who has been nominated for eight Razzies – four more than anyone else – and has won five.

Jazz musician Ahmed Best is the only musician to win a Razzie on their acting debut, having picked up the Worst Supporting Actor award for voicing Jar Jar Binks in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace (1999).

Vanilla Ice was nominated for Worst Actor in Cool As Ice (1991) – a film that was later disowned by its own director – which is one of four rom-coms.

The remaining nomination was for Kris Kristofferson as Worst Actor in 1981 western Heaven’s Gate.

Mariah Carey, who won Worst Actress for her role as aspiring singer Billie Frank in Glitter (2001), which was named as one of the 100 Most Enjoyably Bad Movies Ever Made in the Official Razzie Movie Guide.
