Grab your popcorn! Nominations are in for the 2014 Golden Raspberry Awards (Razzies)– the Dis-Honor Roll of The Film World — and Adam Sandler’s sequel stinker Grown Ups 2 and Will and Jaden Smith’s summer flop Back to Earth lead the pack.
The flims will be vying for the Worst Picture prize along with A Madea Christmas and Disney’s big budget disappointment The Lone Ranger — which garnered five nods, including Worst Actor for Oscar-nominated actor Johnny Depp. Speaking of bad actors: Sandler, a previous Razzie winner, is back again in the Worst Actor category.
Apparently, he isn’t alone. Razzies creator John Wilson says this year’s royal court “includes several ‘repeat offenders,’ returning for more pie-in-the face/light-hearted joshing from the only folks whose statuette no one wants to win.”
The Academy Awards spoof, which hands out annual prizes for the year’s worst in film, are chosen by 750 members and votes from 62,000 users of the film review website RottenTomatoes.com.
Razzie winners will be announced on March 1,
