Razzies nominations 2016: 50 Shades of Grey, Pixels lead pack of year's worst

Posted on

One day before Hollywood honors the best movies of 2015 with Academy Award nominations, the Razzies have singled out the industry’s worst.

Blockbuster hit Fifty Shades of Grey tied with three other films (Pixels, Jupiter Ascending, and Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2) for the most nominations at this year’s Razzie Awards with six in total. The erotic drama scored nods for Worst Picture, Worst Actor (Jamie Dornan), Worst Actress (Dakota Johnson), Worst Director (Sam Taylor-Johnson), Worst Screen Combo (Dornan and Johnson together), and Worst Screenplay. Fifty Shades and its fellow top contenders were joined in the Worst Picture category by Fantastic Four, which scored five total nominations.

Other nods of note: Oscar winners at last year’s Academy Awards ceremony, Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore, found themselves on the worst list for 2015 (Redmayne for his supporting role in Jupiter Ascending; Moore for hers in Seventh Son). Meanwhile, current Oscar contenders Johnny Depp (cited here for Mortdecai) and Rooney Mara (Pan) were also singled out by the Razzies for their 2015 work.

But even the Razzies offer a little bit of hope. The ceremony includes a so-called Razzie Redeemer Award, which honors past Razzie Award winners and nominees who rebounded in the past year. The 2016 list of contenders for that honor include Elizabeth Banks, M. Night Shyamalan, Will Smith, and Sylvester Stallone.
