2014 Golden Raspberry Award Nominees

Razzie Awards 2014 Nominees

Every year the top movies are paraded through a series of award shows, being recognized at the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild Awards and, most notably, the Academy Awards. However, there’s one award show that’s bold enough to go in the entirely opposite direction. An award show that focuses on not the best movies and performances of the year, but the worst.

The 34th Golden Raspberry Awards, better known as the Razzies, take place just a day before the Oscars and probably won’t be quite as star studded. Leading the way this year is Grown  Ups 2 with 9 nominations. Sharing second place are After Earth, A Madea Christmas, and Movie 43 with 6 nominations each.

So who’ll win the dubious distinction of Worst Picture of 2013? We’ll just have to see on March 1st.
