Kim Kardashian Takes Home Her First Razzie AwardBy: Amanda Crum - March 3, 2014
Kim Kardashian has been a fixture on the reality scene for several years now, but she’s shown an interest in acting as well, and her fans don’t seem to be buying it.
The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star earned her first Razzie Award this week as Worst Supporting Actress in Tyler Perry’s “Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor”. Perry says he’s proud of Kardashian for her take on the role, which centered on a self-involved, critical businesswoman.
“I wrote this role, Ava, which is perfect for her – a small role that she delivered, she completely, 100% delivered, and she’s hysterical. She takes every beat and every moment, and I was proud of the work she did in the movie,” Perry said.
Critics had a field day with Kardashian’s performance, calling her nasal and unable to feign even the smallest emotion onscreen.
“Let’s just say that the question of whether the celebrity gossip maven can act is answered within 60 seconds of her cold absence of any feeling performance,” wrote Joel D. Amos at Moviefanatic.com.
The reality star and her mom recently made headlines after they were invited to the Vienna Opera Ball and were approached by a fan in blackface who ran up to them and started doing Kanye West impressions. Chris Stephan said later that he meant no offense and apologized on his Facebook page.
“I am very sorry that this whole situation went badly and was completely misunderstood. I am myself an Arab, born in Austria! Under no circumstance did I want to come across as racist with this action and again apologize to everyone who felt offended,” he wrote.
