LOS ANGELES (AP) — Will and Jaden Smith have something they can bond over. They were both awarded Razzies for “After Earth.”

Jaden was selected as worst actor for his role in the sci-fi flop about a father and son stranded on an untamed earth, while the elder Smith was chosen as worst supporting actor at Saturday’s Golden Raspberry Awards, which lampoons Hollywood’s awards season on the eve of the Oscars. The duo was also selected as worst screen combo by online voters.

“After Earth” tied with “Movie 43″ for the most prizes. The raunchy comedy earned Razzies for worst picture, screenplay and director.

Tyler Perry as feisty alter-ego Madea was picked as worst actress for “A Madea Christmas.”

Kim Kardashian was designated worst supporting actress for her role in “Tyler Perry’s Temptation.”
