Razzies 2014: 'Movie 43' Takes Worst Picture, Will & Jaden Smith Heavily Thrown Under Bus For 'After Earth'

It's game day. The Academy Awards ceremony obvious takes place this evening and so like clockwork, the ignominious folks that run the Razzies Awards have unveiled their list for the worst movies of the year. The biggest story this year is that the Razzie committee failed to award Adam Sandler anything. Odd given how much the organization seems to loath Sandler and all his comedies. And oh yes, “Grown Ups 2” was nominated in several worst categories, but the Razzies saw fit to see many other films are far more egregious in failure.

After Earth, Will Smith

It's game day. The Academy Awards ceremony obviously takes place this evening and so, like clockwork, the ignominious folks that run the Razzie Awards have unveiled their list for the worst movies of the year. The biggest story this year is that the Razzie committee failed to award Adam Sandler anything. Odd, given how much the organization seems to loathe Sandler's many comedies. And oh yes, “Grown Ups 2” was nominated in several worst categories, but the Razzies saw fit to declare many other films as far more egregious in failure.

Taking three of the top prizes at The 34th Annual Razzie Awards was the star-studded sketch comedy “Movie 43,” helmed by 13 different directors (among them Brett Ratner, The Farrelly Brothers, James Gunn and several actors like Elizabeth Banks) and 19 different screenwriters. A collection of comedy vignettes that neither critics nor audiences found largely funny, and the Razzies agreed, “gifting” it the prizes of Worst Picture, Worst Director(s), Worst Screenwriter(s).

The contempt the Razzies usually holds for Adam Sandler (or the “Twilight” films, which has mercifully ended) appears to have been transferred to the Smith family. M. Night Shyamalan’s science-fiction film “After Earth” impressed no one this year, and so tying "Movie 43" for the most amount of trophies was "After Earth," which was awarded with Worst Actor (Will Smith), Worst Supporting Actor (Jaden Smith) and Worst Onscreen Duo (father and son). Kanye West will surely have something to say about his fiancé Kim Kardashian winning Best Supporting Actress for her role in "Tyler Perry's Temptation." The Razzies is admittedly a dubious institution whose process is like shooting fish in a barrel and yet, like almost every year, it’s hard to argue with the awfulness of the films and their choices. Full “winners,” or losers if you like, below, plus a few clips.
