MUMBAI: The Raspberry Awards, better known as the Razzies, since the last 33 years have worked as the flipside of the Academy Awards. While the latter recognises the good work done in Hollywood, the former rips apart those who were not up to the mark.
This time around when Razzies announced the nominations, Adam Sandler's Grown Ups 2 led the charts. The film is up for nine Razzie awards this year that includes Worst Picture, Worst Screenplay and Worst Actor for Sandler and Worst Ensemble Cast.
Apparently, it isn’t the first time for the actor to be nominated in the Razzies. His movie Jack and Jill created history by collecting 10 awards in 2011.
However, coming to the others, actor Johnny Depp who till now has had a fairly good reviews in his kitty for his work, has made an opening at the Razzies for his performance in The Lone Ranger this time.
Sci-fi movie After Earth starring Will Smith and his son Jaden has been nominated in six categories, so is Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas and Movie 43.
Scary Movie 5, Runner Runner and The Host are other films to have been nominated.
