The smart actors who win Razzies actually go to them, in good spirit, to accept their awards. It is the 'any press is good press' concept. It makes fans appreciate their humility and will then laugh with rather than laugh at them. I remember when Sandra Bullock did this--she got a lot of positive press. People forget the bad movies and remember the good natured actor.
