The Razzies, Hollywood’s parody award show that honors the worst content created in the last year, has presented MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell with two awards.
Lindell won Worst Actor for his role in his own self-produced film, “Absolute Proof.” He has called the film a “documentary,” despite the fact that it’s laden with disinformation about the 2020 presidential election.
The movie, two hours long, has been banned from YouTube and ran on conservative outlets that have also peddled election-related conspiracies theories such as OAN.
The premise behind “Absolute Proof” is that former President Donald Trump lost the 2020 election to now-President Joe Biden because of interference from Chinese cyberattackers.
“Now for a narcoleptic coma-inducing performance by a male lead that put our entire voting body to sleep — with or without a pillow,” said the voiceover announcing the Worst Actor award. “The Razzie for Worst Actor goes to Mike Lindell, the pillow guy, by a landslide for ‘Absolute Proof.'”
The movie also won Worst Picture award.
“The Razzie winner for Worst Picture of 2020 is Absolute Proof. Oh boy, here come the demands for a recount,” the voiceover said after announcing “Absolute Proof” the winner.
Outside the movie, Lindell for months has continued to viciously peddle disinformation around the 2020 election results. In the days and weeks after the Capitol riot, Lindell publicly questioned whether the insurrectionists were members of Antifa, despite the rioters being identified and known as Trump supporters.
Lindell is an ardent Trump supporter.
