The Razzies, aka the Golden Raspberry Awards, have been sticking it to Hollywood for the past 40 years, with the annual ceremony acting as the Anti-Oscars as gongs are given for the worst instances of filmmaking over the past 12 months. Typically, the Razzies take easy shots at infamous stinkers that everyone hated — Cats cleaned the table in 2019, for example. Sometimes the Razzies takes a different route, though, and throws shade at a widely acclaimed movie. 1980’s first-ever ceremony, for instance, handed Stanley Kubrick the Worst Director nomination for The Shining.

Looking back at the history of the Razzies in an interview with Vulture, co-founders J.B. Wilson and Maureen Murphy admitted that they do regret nominating The Shining, but not for Kubrick. Murphy revealed that, in retrospect, she regrets that Shelley Duvall was nominated for Worst Actress for the 1980 horror film, given the revelations that have since come out about Duvall’s mistreatment on set at the hands of the director.
