Razzie Nominations 2016 – Fifty Shades of Grey leads with six

fiftyshadesofgrey18Tomorrow, the Academy will honor the year’s best in film. Today, the Razzies honored the worst. The 36th annual Golden Raspberry Award nominations were announced this morning and it’s a roster filled with a few surprise nods – as well as a few not-so-surprising ones.

The erotic drama Fifty Shades of Grey leads the pack with a total of six Razzie nominations, including Worst Picture, Worst Actor for Jamie Dornan, Worst Actress for Dakota Johnson, Worst Screenplay and Worst Director for Sam Taylor-Johnson. For a movie that is solely reliant on the chemistry between its two leads, the Worst Screen Combo nomination is sure to be the hardest pill to swallow.

But the BDSM screen gem isn’t alone in its awards glory – the animated feature Pixels is tied for six nominations, including the fifth Worst Actor nod in a row for Adam Sandler (a double nominee for his work in The Cobbler), Worst Supporting Actor for Kevin James (also nominated for Worst Actor in Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2), Worst Director and Worst Picture.

The Razzies switched it up a little this year; adding inanimate objects to its roster, nominating Razzie darling Adam Sandler for Worst Screen Combo alongside “any pair of shoes,” Kevin James alongside either his “Segway or glued-on mustache” and Mortdecai‘s Johnny Depp opposite his own “glued-on mustache.”

Last year’s Best Actor Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne can add a Razzie nominee to his impressive resumé, snagging a Worst Actor nod for his work in the sci-fi masterpiece and Worst Picture nominee Jupiter Ascending (also with six nominations).

The reboot of Fantastic Four and other six-time nominee Paul Blart are the final two films included among the Worst Picture nominees.

    The acting was atrocious. So was the writing. Grey deserves every razzie it gets.
