Roll out the red carpet, strike your best pose and get your acceptance speech ready: It’s awards season!

For an actor, there’s no greater recognition for a performance than winning an Academy Award, which have celebrated the very best of film since 1929. For ones that have missed the mark, there’s the Golden Raspberry Awards, which have recognised the very worst of film since 1981.

Throughout the years, various pop stars have turned their attention to the silver screen - and neither gong has been off limits.

Indeed, for every Lady Gaga - nominated for this year's Best Actress Academy Award for her turn in A Star Is Born,there has been a Britney Spears, who was panned for her starring role in thecoming-of-age drama Crossroads almost 20 years ago.

So to celebrate Gaga’s nomination, our friends at Betway have analysed all the Oscars and the Razzies, in an attempt to chronicle the best and worstperformances of all those artists who swapped the stage for the screen.

The only eligibility criteria werethat they had a) to be known for their music before their acting and b) not beplaying themselves – apologies to Spice World fans. There has to be one of you out there!
