Adam Sandler's 'Grown Ups 2' tops Razzie 2014 nominations

  • youtube

If one of the movies that you went to see last year hasn't been nominated for a Golden Globe, Oscar or Critics Choice awards, you can be sure that it ended up on Razzie Award’s infamous hit list.

The Razzies - in case you don’t know - are the anti-Oscars. The awards are given to the worst movies and performances of the year.

Back on the list and with the most nominations – again - is Adam Sandler (he swept up a record breaking 10 awards for ‘Jack and Jill’) and this year seems to a be a repeat for the American actor with his movie “Grown Ups 2” which is up for eight of the dubious nominations, including worst picture, sequel, ensemble, screenplay and of course, worst actor.

The demented comedy sequel about four childhood friends also got nominations for worst director (Dennis Dugan), supporting actress (Salma Hayek) and supporting actor (Taylor Lautner).

Coming in at a close second, but with six nominations each for a Golden Raspberry Award was Will Smith and Jaden Smith's 'After Earth', Tyler Perry's 'A Madea Christmas' and the star-studded 'Movie 43'.

Superstars Johnny Depp for the 'Lone Ranger' and Naomi Watts got their first ever nominations.

Watts was nominated for both 'Diana' and 'Movie 43' and she’ll be competing against Halle Berry who landed a worst actress nomination for two films, 'The Call' and 'Movie 43'.

Sylvester Stallone got his 31st Razzie nomination as worst actor for all three of his 2013 movies, Bullet To The Head, Escape Plan and Grudge Match.

Votes were received from 750 Golden Raspberry Award Foundation members, and worst screen combo was voted on by 62,000 RottenTomatoes.com participants.

The Razzie winners will be announced on March 1, the eve of the Oscars.
