The Oscars are behind us (and left us pleasantly shocked) but now comes the award no one really wants to win. Usually, the Razzies, which are given to the worst performances of the year, are handed out a day before the Oscars but this year they have settled for announcing the nominees.
The film with the most nominations this year is Cats. The adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical gathered nine nominations, among them three acting nods for Judi Dench, James Corden, and Rebel Wilson. It also received two nominations in the worst screen combo category for “any two half-feline/half-human hairballs” for “Jason Derulo & his CGI-neutered bulge.”
Other “leading” movies included Rambo: Last Blood – the latest sequel to the Sylvester Stallone’s film franchise, which got eight nominations. A Madea Family Funeral got eight nods too. The Hellboy reboot received four nominations, including Worst Screenplay and Worst Actor for David Harbour. The Haunting of Sharon Tate didn’t fare well as Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood — the other movie to deal with the Manson murders this year — and got four nominations including Worst Actress for Hillary Duff. The Fanatic – a thriller starring John Travolta and directed by Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst got four nominations as well.
