Will Smith, Jaden Smith, Tyler Perry, Halle Berry Lead 2014 RAZZIE Nominations
9
After Earth

Making sure it doesn't get forgotten amid all the Golden Globes/Academy Awards chatter, the RAZZIE folks have unveiled their nominees - but not of the year's best; rather, of the year's worst in American cinema.

And, unlike the Oscars, and the Globes, black performers and films are well represented here - in almost every category! Will Smith, Jaden Smith, Tyler Perry (I think he's nominated every year), and Halle Berry (she's won at least once before) lead the pack.

For the first time in their history, the RAZZIES are also working to broadcast their ceremony this year, and have launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise about $35,000. To contribute to the campaign, and help fund the broadcast, click HERE.

Here's everything an the kitchen sink via press release:

Garnering their first ever RAZZIE nods are some of the silver screen’s most recognizable luminaries, including past Oscar nominees Johnny Depp and Naomi Watts as well as up-and-comers making crummy choices like Jaden Smith and Selena Gomez

The list also includes several “Repeat Offenders,” returning for more pie-in-the-face/light-hearted joshing from the only folks whose statuette no one wants to win. 

Going for a possible 3rd Worst Actor “win” in a row, Adam Sandler is back, alongside such RAZZIE stalwarts (and past “winners”) as Ashton Kutcher, Lindsay Lohan, Taylor Lautner, Tyler Perry and The Awl Time RAZZIE Cham-Peeen Sylvester Stallone, snagging a staggering 31st nomination for three 2013 dogs, BULLET TO THE HEAD, ESCAPE PLAN and GRUDGE MATCH.

Among this year’s five Worst Picture contenders are a real life father and son (Will and Jaden Smith) in a sci-fi epic set on “Planet Nepotism,” AFTER EARTH; Sandler’s latest summer-vacation-masquerading-as-a-movie, GROWN UPS #2; A shockingly star-studded cast in a major dud that came off as an X-rated rip-off of Love American Style, MOVIE 43: Tyler Perry’s 37th Man-in-a-Dress Drag-Fest A MADEA CHRISTMAS: and The Year’s Biggest B.O. Bust, Dizz-Knee’s flat-footed remake of THE LONE RANGER. A complete list of all nominees is included below.

For 8 of this year’s 9 RAZZIE categories, contenders were determined by seeking online votes from some 750 G.R.A.F. Members in 47 U.S. states and 13 foreign countries. Nominations for the 9th category, Worst Screen Combo, were determined by votes from nearly 62,000 users at the popular movie review website Rotten Tomatoes.com. “Winners” in all categories will be announced on the now traditional date of “Oscar Eve,” Saturday, March 1.
