'Fifty Shades Of Grey,' 'Pixels,' 'Jupiter Ascending,' And 'Fantastic Four' Top 2016 Razzie Awards Nominations

Tomorrow, the movie industry will honor the finest 2015 had to offer when the Oscar nominations are unveiled, but today comes an embarrassing look at the worst of the last 12 months. The organizers of the Razzie Awards have unveiled their choices of the year’s cinematic misfires, and it’s a pretty healthy selection of some true stinkers.

Fifty Shades of Grey,” “Pixels,” “Jupiter Ascending,” and “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2” all led the way with six nominations each, while superhero flop “Fantastic Four” earned five.

If fantastic four doesn’t run away with it in every category in which it was nominated then I have no faith in these awards


I believe they shoul expand the number of nominations each year since most the flick each year are more and more crap. "Pan" should be leading each and every nomination.


Stallone will win best comeback for sure. They guy is a razzie favorite but now might win the Oscar for Creed. He’s definitely the favorite in the redemption category.


Did these voters not see Stonewall? It was by far the worst film of 2015.

Oh, and a special Razzie for Eon pictures for ‘Absolute Worst Secret Plot Twist In A Movie’ (or ”Best Spoiler Alert In A Movie Title’).

Such a shame no room on the list for the repetitively smug Christoph Waltz & his fluffy white moggy.


No Child 44? I would have thought Aloha would be a shoe-in for this crowd.


I think it should be The Visit, not The Village
