2014 Razzie Awards Nominations Announced


Today, the infamous Razzie awards announced the nominations for the Worst of the Worst of 2013. The top nominees this year include "Movie 43", "Grown Ups 2", "A Madea Christmas" and "After Earth" with 6 nods each, and "The Lone Ranger" with five noms. Now, maybe I have poor taste in movies, but I really didn't think "The Lone Ranger" was Razzies material. Sure, maybe a Worst Screenplay nomination would have sufficed, but Worst Picture and Director ? Meanwhile, several really bad movies of 2013 got snubbed, if one could say so, including the undead-awful "R.I.P.D." and the moronic "Paranoia", not to mention at least one or two horror films released last year. Even "After Earth" didn't feel all that bad, especially compared to Shyamalan's "The Last Airbender". However, the director's bad reputation and the Smith family duo pairing probably doomed a movie that wasn't necessarily an earth-shattering stinker.

In the acting categories we find Lindsay Lohan, Naomi Watts, Selena Gomez, Halle Berry, Lady Gaga, Salma Hayek, Johnny Depp, Chris Brown, Adam Sandler, Tyler Perry, Ashton Kutcher and Sylvester Stallone. "The Hangover Part III" and "The Smurfs 2" are also on the list in the Worst Remake Rip-Off or Sequel category.
