Grown Ups 2 leads the Razzies
Adam Sandler’s movie Grown Ups 2 has the most nominations at this year’s Golden Raspberry Awards.
The comedy about four childhood friends starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock and David Spade leads the Razzies line-up with eight nominations.
These included worst picture, sequel, ensemble, screenplay, lead actor for Adam, supporting actor for Taylor Lautner, supporting actress for Salma Hayek and director for Dennis Dugan.
Adam is no stranger to the Razzies, which launched in 1980 as a spoof of Hollywood’s awards season.
He won the worst actor trophy last year for That’s My Boy, and his cross-dressing comedy Jack and Jill made Razzie history in 2012 with a record ten awards, with Adam winning both the worst actor and actress prizes.
The worst picture nominees this year are The Lone Ranger starring Johnny Depp, Tyler Perry’s holiday comedy A Madea Christmas, After Earth starring Will and Jaden Smith and comedy anthology Movie 43 featuring some of Hollywood’s finest including Kate Winslet, Richard Gere, Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry.
After Earth, A Madea Christmas and Movie 43 are tied with six nods each.
The shortlist comes a day before the Oscar nominations and the Razzies will similarly be handed out a night before the Academy Awards ceremony on March 2.
Winners generally fail to show up – although Halle Berry and Sandra Bullock have collected their gold spray-painted prizes in person.
