 GOLDEN TURKEY AWARD : Encyclopedia Entry
The Golden Turkey Awards is a 1980 book by film critic Michael Medved and his brother Harry Medved.
The book awards the fictional "Golden Turkey Awards" to films that the Medveds feel are poor in quality, along with directors and actors judged to have created a chronically inept body of work.
A notable exception is the selection of Richard Burton as the worst actor ever, notwithstanding his star status and seven Academy Award nominations for acting; the authors justified their choice by assessing the cumulative merit of his good performances as being far outweighed by the sheer number of bad performances.
