The Razzies are Out and (Surprise!) Adam Sandler Is A Contender

‚ By 

Every year around Oscar time, another part of Hollywood honors the town’s least loved films with an awards show of its own. This past year was filled with some real stinkers like After Earth, Grown Ups 2 and the dismal Movie 43. All of them–and a whole lot more–got the dis-honors they deserved with nominations for this year’s Razzie Awards.

This year’s list of nominees includes a total of nine awards. In addition to the usual list of Worst Movie, Actor and Actress, Supporting Actor and Actress, Screenplay and Director categories, they also threw in some special nods for the past year’s Worst On-Screen Combo and Remake, Rip-off or Sequel. So it probably shouldn’t be a surprise that Adam Sandler and Grown Ups 2 were all over the nomination list. In fact, the film earned a nod in every single category except for Worst Actress.

Of course, Sandler wasn’t the only person who caught the Razzies’ attention. M. Night Shyamalan’s After Earth picked up six nominations for Worst Picture, Worst Actor (Jaden Smith) Worst Supporting Actor (Will Smith), Worst Director, Worst Screen Combo and Worst Screenplay. The summer movie season remake of The Lone Ranger picked up four nominations for Worst Picture, Actor (Johnny Depp), Director (Gore Verbinski) and Remake, Rip-off or Sequel. A Madea Christmas and Movie 43 rounded out the rest of the Worst Picture category with a total of five and six nominations respectively.

Here’s the full list of nominations–including notable names such as Ashton Kutcher for his performance in the disappointing Jobs, Razzie perennial favorite Sylvester Stallone for his work in Bullet to the Head, Escape Plan and Grudge Match, and  Lindsay Lohan picking up a Worst Actress nomination for the The Canyons. Lindsay also lands a Worst Supporting Actress nod for In-App-Propriate Comedy and Scary Movie 5, and a Worst On-Screen Duo nomination for Scary Movie 5 with  Charlie Sheen. You know, we’re going to admire some of Lindsay’s sexier work while you check out these noms…
