The Razzies are coming!

With what is considered the most prestigious ceremony all over for another year, we come to the nominations of what might be the least prestigious awards we have. However calling them that is perhaps an insult to what is brilliant look at the blunders of the past year. Whilst The Oscars goes out of its way not to offend anyone by keeping Steve McQueen, his buddy Michael Fassbender and their sexual addiction at bay, The Razzies heads straight for where most people avoid: pissing Hollywood off. They get under the skin of the rich and famous of the silver screen as they have done since 1980.

For those of you unfamiliar with The Razzies, they are, in short, the anti Oscars. To give the ceremony it’s full title, The Golden Raspberry Awards, they celebrate the worst performances, films, directors and several other unfortunate contributions to the movie world of the past year.

When you take a look at the list below, you’ll notice the man of the hour is Adam Sandler, star of such gems such Jack and Jill and Just Go With It, co-starring Jennifer Aniston. These are the types of films Sandler has chosen to not only star in but produce and write these god awful insults which have earned him the most nominations in the history of the awards ceremonies, racking up an impressive eleven. Arguably, Sandler hasn’t done anything close to a decent film since 1996’s Happy Gilmore, (though I’m sure some of you will say argue that it was 1999’s Big Daddy) which saw him shine as the brilliantly funny and angry hockey player turned golfer. Since then, he has had non hit after non hit, working on films such as Click, Bucky Larson and You Don’t Mess with the Zohan. Well done to you Mr. Sandler, you deserve these prestigious accolades!

Others with a high nomination count they can’t possibly be proud of include Transformers: Dark of the Moon and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 including Worst Picture, Worst Actor and even Worst Screen Couple for both films. Ouch!
