razzieawards2015

The prestigious Golden Raspberry Awards have  unveiled their nominations for the 37th annual awards ceremony. Leading the nominations are Zoolander 2 , and Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice with 9 and 8 noms respectively. See the full list below :

 

 

WORST PICTURE
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Dirty Grandpa
Gods of Egypt
Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party
Independence Day: Resurgence
Zoolander No. 2

BSS pick : A though one. Im guessing it will be between Gods of Egypt , and Zoolander 2. Too close to call. But perhaps Proyas outburst towards critics will push his film to the very top ( bottom )

WORST ACTOR
Ben Affleck / Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Gerard Butler / Gods of Egypt & London Has Fallen
Henry Cavill / Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Robert de Niro / Dirty Grandpa
Dinesh D’Souza [as Himself] Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party
Ben Stiller / Zoolander No. 2

BSS pick : Im thinking Gerard Butler should take this one for Gods and London has fallen. Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck do not belong on the list at all imo.

WORST ACTRESS
Megan Fox / Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
Tyler Perry / BOO! A Madea Halloween
Julia Roberts / Mother’s Day
Becky Turner [as Hillary Clinton] Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party
Naomi Watts / Divergent Series: Allegiant & Shut-In
Shailene Woodley / Divergent Series: Allegiant

BSS pick : It’s a little funny that they nominate Tyler Perry here, but he is not gonna win. For my money it should have been Chloe Moretz for The Fifth Wave , but since that movie has somehow escaped the gaze of the Razzies Im going with Naomi Watts, who should have known better.

WORST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Julianne Hough / Dirty Grandpa
Kate Hudson / Mother’s Day
Aubrey Plaza / Dirty Grandpa
Jane Seymour / Fifty Shades of Black
Sela Ward / Independence Day: Resurgence
Kristen Wiig / Zoolander No. 2

BSS pick: I have no real reasoning to go by here, and I really don´t care much either. I´ll just take a guess and say Aubrey Plaza for Dirty Grandpa. But it seems weird that the Razzies choose to give Amy Adams a break here. By the same logic that puts Affleck up as worst male actor for BvS, surely Amy Adams should be nominated here as well. As could Gal Gadot, but she will be heavily featured next year.

WORST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Nicolas Cage / Snowden
Johnny Depp / Alice Through the Looking Glass
Will Ferrell / Zoolander No. 2
Jesse Eisenberg / Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Jared Leto / Suicide Squad
Owen Wilson / Zoolander No. 2

BSS pick : Jesse Eisenberg. No question about it.

WORST SCREEN COMBO
Ben Affleck & Henry Cavill / Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Any 2 Egyptian Gods or Mortals / Gods of Egypt
Johnny Depp & Wardrobe / Alice Through the Looking Glass
The Entire Cast of Once Respected Actors / Collateral Beauty
Tyler Perry & That Same Old Worn Out Wig / BOO! A Madea Halloween
Ben Stiller & Owen Wilson / Zoolander No. 2

BSS pick : If the entire cast of Collateral Beauty gets the nod, then why isn’t it nominated in the other categories ? Im gonna go with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson.

WORST DIRECTOR
Dinesh D’Souza and Bruce Schooley / Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party
Roland Emmerich / Independence Day: Resurgence
Tyler Perry / BOO! A Madea Halloween
Alex Proyas / Gods of Egypt
Zack Snyder / Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Ben Stiller / Zoolander No. 2

BSS pick : I am surprised that they threw Tyler Perry into the mix here. For my money its between Alex Proyas and Hack Snyder. Hack should take this one home , but like I mentioned earlier, Proyas and his ludicrous attack on critics might just earn him the win. Hack will surely be up for more Razzies in the years to come.

WORST PREQUEL, REMAKE, RIP-OFF or SEQUEL
Alice Through the Looking Glass
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice: Dawn of Justice
Fifty Shades of Black
Independence Day: Resurgence
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
Zoolander No. 2

BSS pick : Zoolander No 2 or Fifty Shades of Black

WORST SCREENPLAY
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Dirty Grandpa
Gods of Egypt
Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party
Independence Day: Resurgence
Suicide Squad

BSS pick : How is Zoolander 2 not nominated here ? And Suicide Squad makes it as its only nomination ? Weird.  Im going with Gods of Egypt on this one.

 

So the noteworthy omission here is the gawd awful Fifth Wave movie, which easily could have been nominated in every category imo. I see that they have ditched the Razzie Redeemer Award this year which I think is pretty sad.

Although I think Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill should not be nominated in the actor categories, I can sort of understand why they got the nom. BvS should have been a slam dunk. It’s a premise which should not have been possible to fuck up, but Hack Snyder and his hatred of the source material managed to do just that. Completely fuck it up.And its the bitter disappointment from  DC fans which caused the most outrage towards the film. But why then Amy Adams and Larry Fishburne was shown “mercy” is at the very least questionable.

The 37th Razzies will announce the winners on February 25th , the night before the Academy Awards.

Who are your picks in the different categories ? Are there other movies you think should have been nominated ?
