And not just audiences, who have given us a tremendous response, we have also got a whole lot of awards for it! Now in its 8th season, we’re certain Slappies will be bigger, better and even more fun!
This year, the categories for Slappies 8 are - Worst Film, Worst Actor, Worst Actress, Worst Song, Worst Debut, Worst Director, Worst Dialogue, Worst Supporting Actor, Worst Jodi, and Lifetime Achievement for Worst Song.
