Lindsay Lohan, Johnny Depp, Will Smith & More “Honored” With Razzie Nominations For Year’s Worst Films

Lindsay Lohan, Johnny Depp, Will Smith & More "Honored" With Razzie Nominations For Year's Worst Films

With Hollywood set to unveil the Oscar nominations tomorrow morning—the same day as the Sundance Film Festival kicks off—the folks at the Razzies are doing their annual thing of thumbing their nose at the industry by unveiling their nominations of the year’s worst. And big shock here is really how tame most of their targets are this year.
Mostly focusing on big budget bombs, or movies that people have already acknowledged are pretty fucking terrible, 2014 sees the organization pin their crosshairs on the likes of Lindsay Lohan (“The Canyons,” InAPPropriate Comedy,” “Scary Movie 5“), Johnny Depp (“The Lone Ranger“), Will Smith (“After Earth“) and more. The usually reliable Naomi Watts gets rightfully called out for her dreadful performance in “Diana,” while Adam Sandler makes his usual appearance on here too, with “Grown Ups 2” getting its fair share of nods. We wish the Razzies wouldn’t’ve made some bolder, more provocative choices (seriously, how easy of a target is “The Counselor“?) but that’s not really their thing.
Find out who “won” on Saturday, March 1st. Full nominees below.

Are you kidding me? I actually just got on here to recommend Exodus: Gods and Kings, that crap was waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay worse than The Lone Ranger! People seem to forget: it’s called the ENTERTAINMENT business! And I was very entertained by The Lone Ranger, Johnny Depp’s comic prowess as Tonto, and all the action sequences! I went and saw Exodus: Gods and Kings last night in 3D and I want my $$$ back!! BOOOOO-RING!!!! I am serious, it was TERRIBLE! And I am not saying that because it’s a Bible movie, Noah was awesome! Of course, Exodus: Gods and Kings isn’t going to end up on this list because Ridley Scott directed it. People, stay away from that boring and uninspiring movie, even if you have the chance to watch it for free, it’s 150 minutes of your life you won’t get back! Freddie Got Fingered was waaaaaaaaay more entertaining than boring-ass Exodus. Seriously


Will Smith is just a terrible actor and now his offspring are entering the circle of terrible actors. Once I saw the trailer for the movie it looked like a joke. Both of the Smiths are equally horrible. Shaymalan made one great movie and he might be trying too hard which is why his films are garbage.

I went to see Jobs and Ashton Kutcher should stick to Kelso roles that suit him better. If this guy ever wins an Oscar hell will be frozen over. Johnny Depp has become a crappy actor. I can't say he was ever a good actor but his whole career is a joke. Anything that Tyler Perry is affiliated with should automatically get a Razzie. That guy should be kicked out pf Hollywood and never be let to produce any more films.


I'm glad Lindsey Lohan is nominated for worst actress she can't act at all what a wasted of everybody watching her messing up, the drug addict can't act at all.

Aaron Saltzer

Tyler Perry's an actor regardless of the character he plays.


Gotta laugh at the Smiths on Planet Nepotism!


I really don't understand why The Lone Ranger is considered bad. I didn't see it for a while because of all the negative reviews but when I finally did go see it I was surprised! I thought it was a well done film. The acting was good and I loved the direction. I feel like people were thrown off by the darker and more violent tone then the original show offered.


The Lone Ranger really doesn't deserve to be nominated for a Razzie.
