35th Razzie Award Nominations highlight the worst of Hollywood

The annual list of Golden Raspberry Award nominations has been announced, offering a glimpse at what some consider the worst projects and performances to come out of Hollywood last year.

In a press release announcing this year’s list of “Razzie” nominees, The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation blamed the underperforming 2014 box office on Hollywood churning out “movies based on recycled premises and re-worked concepts that were already tired a decade or more ago,” calling them “the cinematic equivalent of re-treaded tires.”

“Those are the films The Golden Raspberry Awards have annually ‘saluted’ since 1980,” reads the announcement.

The usual 10 categories of Razzie Awards were joined by a new, 11th category this year: The Razzie Redeemer Award. The new award honors past Razzie recipients who have gone on to redeem themselves with critically praised projects or performances.

“Winners” of the 10 traditional awards are determined by Golden Raspberry Award foundation members, with the Razzie Redeemer recipient determined by online voting at review aggregator site RottenTomatoes.com. All of the award recipients will be announced at a ceremony held Saturday, February 21, at the Montalban Theatre in Hollywood, CA.
