With its nominations for Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst Screen Combo, and Worst Screenplay, The Emoji Movie became the first full-length animated motion picture to receive nominations for those specific categories at the Golden Raspberry Awards and to win all of these awards. A new award was also created, sponsored by Rotten Tomatoes, for "The Razzie Nominee So Rotten You Loved It", where the website readers voted for their favorite film which they thought was unfairly nominated, which was won by Baywatch. One of the film's stars, Dwayne Johnson, accepted the prize, albeit not in person.

Andy Griffith

The show also starred child actor Ron Howard (then known as Ronny Howard), who played Taylor's only child, Opie Taylor. It was an immediate hit. Griffith never received a writing credit for the show, but he worked on the development of every script. Knotts was frequently lauded and won multiple Emmy Awards for his comedic performances (as did Frances Bavier in 1967), while Griffith was never nominated for an Emmy Award during the show's run. In 1967, Griffith was under contract with CBS to do one more season of the show. However, he decided to quit the show to pursue a movie career and other projects.

Shirley Jones

She was reunited with Ron Howard (who had played her brother in The Music Man) in The Courtship of Eddie's Father (1963). Jones landed the role of a lady who fell in love with the professor in Fluffy (1965). In 1970, after turning down the role of Carol Brady on The Brady Bunch, a role that ultimately went to her best friend, Florence Henderson, Jones was the producers' first choice to audition for the lead role of Shirley Partridge in The Partridge Family, an ABC musical sitcom based loosely on the real-life musical family The Cowsills. The series focused on a young widowed mother whose five children form a pop rock group after the entire family painted its signature bus to travel.

Andy TaylorSheriff Andy TaylorAndy Taylor (''The Andy Griffith Show'')
Andy is active in the community. He serves on the town council, sings in the civic choir, judges a beauty contest, and acts in a Founders Day pageant. One error here in Andy's community service is his being both the elected sheriff and a town councilmember; under North Carolina law he could not do both. He often serves on social committees, attends community functions like dances, plays with the town band, and participates in organizing high school reunions. He attends church, helps select the church's new organ, and serves on the church's finance committee.

Henry Winkler

Fair Dinkum, Inc.Winkler
Marshall sought to cast a hunky, blonde, Italian model-type male in the role of Fonzie, intended as a stupid foil to the real star, Ron Howard. However, when Winkler interpreted the role in auditions, Marshall immediately snapped him up. According to Winkler, "The Fonz was everybody I wasn't. He was everybody I wanted to be." Winkler's character, though remaining very much a rough-hewn outsider, gradually became the focus of the show as time passed (in particular after the departure of Ron Howard). Initially, ABC executives did not want to see the Fonz wearing leather, thinking the character would appear to be a criminal.

Eat My Dust!

Eat My Dust
is a 1976 action film from New World Pictures starring Ron Howard. Ron Howard had written a comedy with his father called Tis the Season and raised half the budget from Australia. He met with Roger Corman and agreed to star in the film provided the producer agreed to co-finance Tis the Season. Corman was not enthusiastic about the comedy but said if Howard appeared in Eat My Dust he would let the actor develop a second film which Howard would direct as well as star. This was Grand Theft Auto (1977). Charles Griffith directed the movie which was shot in four weeks, although Howard's scenes were done in only ten days.
