Dwayne Johnson's blockbuster disappointment "Baywatch" scored the (dis)honor in the new category "A Movie So Rotten You Eventually Fell in Love With It."
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson may have missed out on Oscar gold for his film work in 2017, but that didn't stop him from proudly accepting an award on Sunday night. The "Jumanji" star took to Twitter to tout his victory at the annual Golden Raspberry Awards for his stellar work in the "Baywatch" film this past summer.
In his video, Johnson said he was proud of all his Hollywood pals for their Academy Award nominations -- "I'm pulling for you guys to bring home the gold" -- but was also excited with his own big win. "I too am bringing home the gold tonight," he said. "No not an Oscar, maybe one day, but a Razzie!"
He was especially proud because "Baywatch" so (un)impressed the Razzie judges that it defied existing categorization. "The movie was so bad, they actually had to create a new category; I'm not kidding," Johnson said. "That category, the new category, is 'A Movie So Rotten You Eventually Fell in Love With It.' Which means the shit sandwich you have been eating is so bad that you eventually started to like it."
It’s the #Oscars and Hollywood’s biggest night!— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) March 4, 2018
So let me go ahead and take this “L” right on the chin for Baywatch.

Johnson totally acknowledged that "Baywatch" wasn't the best film in his catalog, and he was humble in owning up to it, saying, "Look, we made 'Baywatch' with the best intentions and it didn't work out like that, but I humbly and graciously accept my Razzie and I thank you critics, thank you fans."
With that kind of grace in winning an award for something terrible, we can't wait to see the speech he delivers should he ever score that coveted Oscar.
