Perry was up for the same recognition for “Boo! A Madea Halloween” in 2017. That movie also earned him a worst-combo nomination for “Tyler Perry & That Same Old Worn Out Wig” and a worst director Razzie nomination as well.
Perry didn’t win any of the categories, though. That year, Dinesh D’Souza and Bruce Schooley won worst director for “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party.” Rebekah Turner was named worst actress for her role as Clinton in that movie. Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill were deemed worst duo for “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
It seems like the Razzies really seem to want Perry to win an award this year. He’s also up for worst remake, rip-off or sequel and, once again, worst combo. The parameters have been widened in the latter category to include “Tyler Perry & Either The Ratty Old Dress or Worn Out Wig.”
Perry isn’t in bad company. Jennifer Lawrence is nominated for worst actress for her part in “Mother!” and Tom Cruise is among the nominees for worst actor for “The Mummy.”

In a video message on Facebook, Perry is also standing up for his friend, megachurch pastor and televangelist Joel Osteen of Lakewood Church in Houston. In fact, Tyler said he plans to give the first $250,000 to Osteen’s church to help buy supplies.
Osteen was heavily criticized after reports that he didn’t immediately open the church as a shelter for people fleeing rising storm waters.
Perry and Lakewood Church officials said there were safety concerns at the church, which used to be an NBA arena, during and immediately after the hurricane.
Perry, who has family in Houston, said he recently spoke with Osteen and called Joel and Victoria Osteen “amazing people. There's no way they would lock people out of the church and not let people in for shelter.”
Earlier this week, Osteen spoke with on “Good Morning America” and other media outlets in an attempt to do damage control, calling reports “totally not true.”
He said the church was serving as a collection point for supplies and a shelter for Houston residents. Lakewood Church is partnering with Samaritan’s Purse andWorld Relief to offer aid.
Perry, who also had family in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina, said he wanted to find the right charity to support. In the past, he said he had donated “millions and millions” of dollars only to discover later that the money was not getting to the people.
This time, he’s looking for “boots on the ground” groups and individuals who know what the needs are and how best to help.
