Awards season typically makes a big show of honoring the year’s absolute best in film and television, but it also brings with it the Razzie Awards, which call out the year’s most abysmal movies and performances.
Leading the pack this year: “Grown Ups 2″ the ridiculous “comedy” sequel about four childhood friends who are—you guessed it—kinda all grown up. The movie stars Adam Sandler (also known as the Razzie king, thanks to his flicks scoring noms pretty much every year), Kevin James, Chris Rock and David Spade.
The movie managed to nab a whopping eight Razzie nominations, including worst picture, worst sequel, worst ensemble, worst screenplay, worst lead actor for Sandler, worst supporting actor for Taylor Lautner, worst supporting actress for Salma Hayek and worst director for Dennis Dugan.
Other worst picture nominees: Disney’s Wild West romp “The Lone Ranger” starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, Tyler Perry’s“A Madea Christmas,” “Movie 43” featuring Kate Winslet, Richard Gere, Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry, and Will and Jaden Smith‘s sci-fi flick “After Earth” (which the Razzie site humorously quipped is “set on “Planet Nepotism.”)
A few actors were lucky enough to score their first-ever Razzie nods this year including past Oscar nominees Depp and Naomi Watts for her panned portrayal of Princess Diana in “Diana,” as well as young Hollywood members Jaden Smith and Selena Gomez for “Getaway.”
The nominees will be “honored” in Hollywood on March 1, the night before the Oscars.
