The winners of the 2015 Golden Raspberry Awards, known as the Razzies, were announced Sunday, naming Kirk Cameron in four different categories.

Best known for his role on the sitcom "Growing Pains," Cameron has since appeared in films such as "Left Behind," "Fireproof," and most recently, "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas." The actor's latest role in the Christmas film earned him a Razzie for Worst Screen Combo, Worst Screenplay, Worst Actor and Worst Picture.

It comes as no surprise that "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas" was among 2015's Razzie Awards top winners; the film scored a 1.9 out of 10 on and was widely panned by critics. The film was intended to "put the Christ back in Christmas" with Cameron schooling audiences on new ideas about where Christmas traditions originated. Presenting never-before-heard "facts" about both the Bible and historical events, "Saving Christmas" offers explanations for iconic Christmastime accouterments including the Christmas tree, Santa Claus and the nativity. At the time of its release in Nov., Cameron encouraged his fans to improve the rating.

"Help me storm the gates of Rotten Tomatoes," the evangelical minister wrote on Facebook in a caption of a photo of him holding two tomatoes with "Fresh" and "Rating" written on each.

"All of you who love Saving Christmas – go rate it at Rotten Tomatoes right now and send the message to all the critics that WE decide what movies we want our families see," Cameron added. "If 2,000 of you (out of almost 2 million on this page) take a minute to rate Saving Christmas, it will give the film a huge boost and more will see it as a result! Thank you for all your help and support in putting the joy of Christ back in Christmas!"

Notwithstanding, on Monday, Cameron did not acknowledge his Razzie Awards; instead posting a message on Facebook directing his fans to the Bible.

"Paying attention to the little words in the Bible opens up for us big worlds of thought and theology and practice and living," the actor wrote.
