Currently the President of the United States, Donald Trump is best known for his reality television franchise “The Apprentice” and “Celebrity Apprentice”. But like a former President of the United States, that was not Trump’s only television appearance.
In 1991 he became an award winning actor for his cameo appearance in “Ghosts Can’s Do It”. For that performance Trump was presented with the Golden Raspberry Award for the Worst Supporting Actor. The annual Razzies, as they are called, are presented on the night before the annual Academy awards not for the best in Hollywood but for being the worst in Hollywood. Trump was not the only “winner” in the film; it also won Worst Picture, Worst Director, and Worst Actress.
Razzie founders John Wilson and Mo Murphy are never sure exactly who will show up for the annual awards presentations but Trump has never picked up his Golden Raspberry trophy.
Speaking on the issue Wilson and Murphy said, “we have it proudly displayed on the mantle at our Los Angeles headquarters. Hoping Trump will pick it up soon before it all falls to pieces. We’d like to get it out of here and place it with its rightful owner, in the office where he currently displays a very sad performance to a frightened world audience.”
When asked in an interview how they came up with Trump as the winner, they responded with, “Trump’s role in ‘Ghosts Can’t Do It’ was basically a cameo, playing himself. But even with as little screen time as he had, his performance came across as boastful, full of hot air.”
Trump has appeared on other programs mostly as himself including “The Jeffersons”, “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York”, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”, “The Little Rascals”, “The Nanny”, “NightMan”, “Spin City”, “Sabrina, the Teenage Ship”, “Sex and the City”, “Zoolander”, and “Monk”.
