"Fifty Shades of Grey", "Jupiter Ascending" lead the Razzies


Date Posted: 14 January 2016


"Fifty Shades of Grey", "Pan", some of the Razzies contenders.

14 Jan – "Fifty Shade of Grey" and "Jupiter Ascending" are neck-to-neck in the Razzies race this year as both movies have been nominated in six categories each for the upcoming awards show.

The erotic rom com and the sci-fi action movie share the same nominations except one.

Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson's lack of chemistry earned the former movie a Worst Screen Combo nomination while Eddie Redmayne and his hoarse whisper earned the latter a Worst Supporting Actor nomination.

Both movies are also up for Worst Picture, Worst Actor, Worst Actress, Worst Director and Worse Screenplay.

Other notables nominees include Johnny Depp and "His Glued-On Moustache" ("Mortdecai"), nominated for Worst Screen Combo; Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily in "Pan", nominated for Worst Actress; and "Fantastic Four", nominated for Worst Remake.


"Jupiter Ascending" fails to impress despite its big budget.

Meanwhile, once again, the Razzie Redeemer Award will be given to one of the nominees or winners of past Razzies that have accomplished enough in movies to redeem themselves.

Potential winners this year are Elizabeth Banks ("Pitch Perfect 2"), M. Night Shyamalan ("The Visit"), Will Smith ("Concussion") and recent Golden Globe winner, Sylvester Stallone ("Creed").

The 36th Annual Razzie Awards takes place on 27 February, on the eve of the Oscars.
