The Razzies nominations were announced on Wednesday, and it’s a four-way tie for who was given top “honors,” with six nominations apiece going to Fifty Shades of Grey, Paul Blart Mall Cop 2, Jupiter Ascending and Pixels. All four stinkers were nominated in the Worst Picture category.
Fifty Shades of Grey stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson could also go home with several Golden Raspberries, with the pair nominated in the Worst Actor, Worst Actress, and Worst Screen Combo categories. Jupiter Ascending stars Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis are up for Worst Actor and Worst Actress respectively.
Kevin James has the most individual nominations at four after receiving Razzie nods for two movies this year. James was noted for his on-screen and behind-the-scenes work for Paul Blart Mall Cop 2, with nominations for Worst Actor, Worst Screenplay, and Worst Screen Combo for his Segway and glued-on moustache. He was also nominated for Worst Supporting Actor for Pixels.
Eddie Redmayne and Julianne Moore, who won Best Actor and Best Actress at last year’s Academy Awards, are up for Razzies this year. Moore’s nominated for Worst Supporting Actress for Seventh Son, while Redmayne is up for a Worst Supporting Actor for Jupiter Ascending.
