Glitter is a drama film starring Mariah Carey, produced by 20th Century Fox and Columbia Pictures and released in 2001. It centers on the life and times of a struggling singer from the early club music scene. Largely panned by critics and audiences alike, it performed poorly in theatres after it was labelled a vanity project and being an almost autobiographical account of Carey's life. The film received five nominations (and one win: Carey, for "Worst Actress") at the 2001 Golden Raspberry Awards, and has been considered one of the worst films ever made.
