With all the attention currently being lavished on the best films of 2014, you might almost forget that 2014 had some real stinkers, too. But as always, the Razzies are here to remind you.
The nominees for the 35th annual Golden Raspberry Awards have been announced. The list mostly consists of the usual easy targets — Transformers: Age of Exinction, Kirk Cameron, Adam Sandler — but there’s also a new category this year for former Razzie-worthy talents who’ve turned their lives around. Yes, the Razzies are actually, sincerely, celebrating the likes of Kristen Stewart and Keanu Reeves.

When you’re celebrating the worst of something, it’s impossible to get it right. Just like everyone’s favorite movies are subjective, so are the bad, but then there’s a whole other level missing. You go out to movies hoping for them to be good. Very few people seek out the really bad movies – at least not on initial release. So unless you see every single movie that comes out in a year, really, you’re just picking the worse movies you saw, not the worst movies period. Or even worse, the movies someone thinks are bad without watching them.
That’s just one of a hundred reasons The Razzies are so useless. Sure it’s funny in theory to crown the worst movies of the year, but the process by which they choose their short list of nominees is a total mystery. For example this year, Noah, a movie with a fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, is a possible nominee. If this was being serious, shouldn’t something like that be automatically be crossed off? Do they really hate a movie like The Interview or is it just included because it’s popular at the moment? Is that the same reason why seemingly every single possible actor mentioned is incredibly famous? There are a ton of questions raised, but very few answered, by the 2014 Razzie nominations short list which you can see below. Read More »

For the film industry, the first couple months of each year are basically one long marathon of high fives. In glitzy ceremony after glitzy ceremony, filmmakers congratulate themselves and each other for making such awesome movies. It can all feel like a bit much after a while, even for the most enthusiastic of awards season watchers.
That’s where the Golden Raspberry Awards come in. Since 1980, they’ve shoved past the year’s best movies to recognize the worst of the worst. Among this year’s contenders are 31-time(!) nominee Sylvester Stallone, past Oscar winners Johnny Depp and Naomi Watts. But the most celebrated of all is reigning Worst Actor champ Adam Sandler, whose Grown Ups 2 snagged an impressive eight nominations. Check out the full list of nominees after the jump.

We’ll be hearing arguments over which film really deserved the Best Picture Oscar for months, if not years, to come, but if the Razzie results are any indication there’s a firm consensus on which movie was the worst of 2012.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II swept this year’s proceedings, as seven out of their record-tying eleven nominations turned into wins. Keep in mind that that’s eleven nominations out of ten categories — that’s how bad Razzie voters thought this thing was. That’s My Boy and Battleship got a little love (hate?) as well. Hit the jump to read the winners.

Yes, you read the headline right. Bill Condon‘s The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II was nominated for every single Razzie category. 11 nominations in 10 categories. It’s by far the leader for the 33rd annual “award” show that commemorates the worst films released in the past year. The rest? You can basically imagine. Lots of hate for Battleship, That’s My Boy, The Oogieloves, Tyler Perry, Nicolas Cage – all the expected culprits. Check out the nominations below. Read More »

As the race for the year’s most coveted trophies came to a close with this weekend’s Oscars ceremony, another much less prestigious awards competition was just getting started. Nominations have been announced for the 32nd Razzie Awards, handed out to the “worst achievements in film” each year.
Leading the 2012 list is Adam Sandler, whose involvement in Jack and Jill, Bucky Larson, and Just Go With It earned him a record-breaking eleven Razzie nominations. That’s more than twice as many as the previous record holder, Norbit star Eddie Murphy, received in 2007. Other standouts include Nicolas Cage, Ken Jeong, Sarah Palin, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I, and The Hangover Part II. Read the full list of nominees after the jump.
