 Nominations in for Razzies – Hollywood’s Worst

VOA News

The nominations are in for last year’s worst of Hollywood.

As is often the case, actor and comedian Adam Sandler is up for two more Razzies, adding to his long list of nominations for the tongue-in-cheek awards. He has been nominated five consecutive years.

Razzies are seen as a counterbalance to Hollywood’s Oscars and Golden Globes. Created in 1980, the awards celebrate tinseltown’s missteps.

Sandler was nominated twice for worst actor for his roles in «The Cobbler» and «Pixels.» Joining him are Johnny Depp in «Mortdecai»; Jamie Dornan in «Fifty Shades of Grey»; Kevin James in «Paul Blart Mall Cop 2»; and Channing Tatum in «Jupiter Ascending.»

Up for worst movie are «Fantastic Four,» »Fifty Shades of Grey», «Jupiter Ascending», «Paul Blart Mall Cop 2» and «Pixels.»

Worst actress nominees are Katherine Heigl for «Home Sweet Hell»; Dakota Johnson for «Fifty Shades of Grey»; Mila Kunis for «Jupiter Ascending»; Jennifer Lopez for «The Boy Next Door» and Gwyneth Paltrow for «Mortdecai.»

The Razzies are voted for by a committee of 900 members and the “winners” will be announced a day before the Oscars ceremony, on February 27.

Winners receive a gold, spray-painted trophy valued at less than $5.
