Just before the announcement of the Oscar nominations, the nominees for the 36th Annual Razzies have been revealed. The award organized by The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation focuses on the worst movies per year. So, the list of nominations for the awards is certainly interesting.
The contenders for Worst Picture of the Year are all big-budget movies that can hardly come up with a reason for their poor quality. Names nominated for the 36th annual Razzies Best Actor category include stars like Johnny Depp and previous Oscar winners like Julianne Moore, Gwyneth Paltrow and Eddie Redmayne. So yes, the list of nominations is something you cannot afford to miss.
“Fifty Shades of Grey” and “Fantastic 4” are the two most prominent contenders for Worst Picture. We can bet equally on either of them to win the prize in the 36th annual Razzies.
The contenders as well as winners under each of the Razzie categories are determined through online votes per year. This year, around 900 members from 47 states of the U.S. and 21 foreign nations have voted to choose the nominees. They will be voting for the winners, too. The recipient of the Razzie Redeemer Award will be decided by votes given by Rotten Tomatoes users.
The Razzies were established in 1980, and 2016 will be their 36th year. The awards have generated great enthusiasm among the audience, and the popularity of the Razzies has increased steadily so far. The names of the “winners” of the 36th annual Razzies will be disclosed on February 27, which is also the night before the Oscars. Check out the list of Razzie nominees on their official website.
