Razzie Nominations 2016: ‘Fifty Shades,’ ‘Jupiter Ascending’ and more

As you may know, the prestigious Academy Award nominees will be announced tomorrow. So as always, The Golden Raspberry Awards (the Razzies) have announced their nominations for cinema’s worst contributions of 2015.

Some of the titles that made the list were Fifty Shades of Grey (no surprise there), Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, Pixels and Jupiter Ascending. All of these films tied for the most nominations, scoring 6 nominations each.

Fifty Shades, which follows the strange story of a steamy romance between a literature student and a tormented billionaire, was nominated for worse picture, worst screen combo, worst actress, worst actor, worst screenplay and worst director. OUCH.

Along with the most-nominated titles, Fantastic Four received a nod for worst picture.

This year we saw some of Hollywood’s best land on the list of worsts. Eddie Redmayne, who won an Oscar for best actor in a leading role last year, received a Razzie nomination for worst supporting actor for his work in Jupiter Ascending. He was joined by Julianne Moore (for Seventh Son) and Gwyneth Paltrow and Johnny Depp (for Mortdecai).

The Razzies are pretty much the opposite of the Oscars. The winners even receive a spray-painted trophy worth practically nothing, unlike the sought-after gold statue Oscar winners receive.

However, the ceremony does contain one “good” award. It has the Razzie Redeemer Award, which honors previous nominees and winners who have since made up for their bad performances, according to PEOPLE.

This year, Will Smith, Sylvester Stallone and Elizabeth Banks were nominated.

The 36th annual Razzie winners will be announced the night before the Academy Awards take place, Feb. 27.
