As is tradition in Hollywood, the day before the announcement for the 2016 Academy Awards nominations, which celebrates the industry’s best, the Razzies revealed their list for the worst of the worst.
Although Fifty Shades of Grey scored big at the box office, that hasn’t stopped it from leading the pack with two other films for Razzie nominations this year. Fifty Shades of Grey, Jupiter Ascending and Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 each got six nominations in total.
The book turned film received nods for Worst Picture, Worst Actor (Jamie Dornan), Worst Actress (Dakota Johnson), Worst Screen Combo (Dornan and Johnson), Worst Director, and Worst Screenplay. The three films are then joined by Fantastic Four and Pixels in the Worst Picture category. It is also interesting to see Oscar winner, and award frontrunner Eddie Redmayne receiving a nomination for Worst Supporting Actor in Jupiter Ascending.
Meanwhile, the Razzies make sure to reflect one bad movie does not mean a bad career and once again included the Razzie Redeemer Award for those who had a successful year and this years contenders include Elizabeth Banks who won a Razzie for Movie 47, but has had multiple hit movies in 2015, and Sylvester Stallone who is an “All-Time Razzie Champ,” but has already won a Golden Globe for Creed.
