50 Shades of Grey Leads The Razzies Nominations

Hollywood’s shadiest honor, The Razzies announced their nominations for the worst films of the year, just a day ahead of the Academy Award noms.

Leading the race to the bottom is 50 Shades of Grey; the wet dream that turned into a cold fish received six nominations, including Worst Picture, Worst Actor for Jamie Dornan and Worst Actress for Dakota Johnson, whose mother Melanie Griffith is a multiple Razzie nominee and one-time “winner.”anigif_mobile_8f1d9e0ebd51f60c1ab4dcb95343f4e2-0

Julianne Moore and Eddie Redmayne, who both took home Oscars last year, thought no one would remember Seventh Son and Jupiter Ascending, the turkeys that proceeded their Oscar grabs. Well, The Golden Raspberries haven’t forgotten, serving them Worst Supporting Actress and Supporting Actor noms for their contributions to those “films.”redmayne-1425670530

Redmayne is an Oscar nominee this year for his role in The Danish Girl; so how’s that for a balancing act. His Jupiter Ascending co-star Channing Tatum also received a Razzie nom as Worst Actor in the film. I really hope one of them wins because it’s always great whenever someone shows up to accept their Razzie—as good sports Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock and Ben Affleck (all Oscar-winners, by the way) have done in the past.
