Razzie Award for Worst Actress is an award presented at the annual Golden Raspberry Awards to the worst actress of the previous year. Male actors performing in drag are eligible, as it is intended as a humorous award.[1]

The following is a list of recipients and nominees of that award, along with the films for which they were nominated.

The category of "actress" has expanded to include the subjects of documentary films.[2]

To date, two nominations have been rescinded. On March 31, 2022, the Golden Raspberry committee decided to rescind Shelley Duvall's nomination for her performance in The Shining, stating that it was recently brought to their attention that the performance was impacted by the intense treatment she received from director Stanley Kubrick and that they didn't wish to punish victims.[3] On January 24, 2023, a day after announcing the nominees for the 43rd Golden Raspberry Awards, the Razzies decided to rescind their nomination for Ryan Kiera Armstrong after facing immense backlash for what was publicly perceived as cruel, given the fact that Armstrong was a minor at the time of the nomination.[4][5]
