'Grown Ups 2,' 'After Earth' Lead The 2014 Razzie Award Nominations

It's the day before the Oscar nominations, which means one thing for sure: The Razzie Award nominations, which aim to be the essential opposite of the Oscars in (dis)honoring the year's worst in film.

Razzie regular Adam Sandler is aiming for his third worst actor prize in a row this year, this time for "Grown Ups 2," which led the pack with 8 nominees overall.  It is joined in the Worst Picture category by "After Earth," "The Lone Ranger," "A Madea Christmas" and "Movie 43."

Lindsay Lohan had the most individual nominations (with 3), though there will definitely be a few that argue her work in "The Canyons" doesn't quite belong here.

"Winners" of this year’s Razzies will be announced March 1, which is the day before the Academy Awards.

    Can't we please add Inside Llewyn Davis to the list? Realize some critics and Coen brothers fans are loving it but it was self-indulgent, depressing and boring...How many people can relate to the story or want to spend two hours sharing an angry artistic failure's trials...This should have been shown to family and friends at a living room party.


    good acting doesn't make up for "no reason to make this movie"

    Yeah, and tell those idiots from the Cannes Jury they can ram that Grand Prix up their asses. Same goes for the douchebags on rottentomatoes giving it a 94% and metacritic giving them a 92 or anybody else for that matter, who thinks this movie is a genuine masterpiece about the struggles of creativity and one of The Coens' finest movies. You are all wrong. This piece of crap belongs right here next to "Movie 43" and M. Night Shyamalan.
