The Rock admits Georgia-filmed "Baywatch" was terrible


The "Baywatch" adaptation which filmed partly on the Georgia coast was so awful it was nominated for worst remake, rip-off or sequel (it was based on the old television serious) and worst screenplay. Zac Efron picked up a worst acting nomination for his role as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s lifeguard sidekick.

Other films "won" in those categories but the Razzies - think of them as the anti-Oscars - couldn't let "Baywatch" not leave empty handed. So a whole new category emerged: "The Razzie Nomination so Rotten You Loved It!"

The Rock took news of the "win" in stride. See his "acceptance speech" below but be warned there's one expletive in the clip. (If you saw "Baywatch," it's nothing you haven't heard before).

"We made 'Baywatch' with the best of intentions," he said. "It didn't work out, but I humbly and graciously accept my Razzie... Go 'Baywatch.' Thank you for my Razzie. Give it to me!"
