The Razzie awards – which celebrate the worst of cinema – have announced their nominations…
If you were a regular cinema goer in 2013, you will know that it truly was a mixed year; GRAVITY, NEBRASKA and PHILOMENA were standouts on the good side, but all know that this was the year that brought us MOVIE 43 and GROWN UPS 2.
Speaking of GROWN UPS 2, the film won an incredible nine nominations at the Razzies, with MOVIE 43 and AFTER EARTH following close behind with five nominations each. There were a surprising amount of former Oscar honourees in this year’s nominations, with Naomi Watts and Halle Berry btoh nominated for their poerformances in two films. Perhaps Selena Gomez was judged too harshly though; she’s been in worse and Johnny Depp wasn’t necessarily bad, he was just playing the same character… Again. This is Depp’s first Razzie nomination.
