Razzie Award Nominations Announced and They’re a Little Too Accurate About 2020
It really was the darkest of timelines.
The Razzie Awards nominations have dropped, and are we really surprised that 2020 was given the special honor of being “The Worst Calendar Year EVER!”? I’m not. 2020 deserves the award, just like many of the films and actors on this list do too, during the 41st Annual Golden Rasberry Awards. And while there’s a full list below, let’s break down the most notable nominations and who should win.
Worst Picture has notable titles like 365 Days (the ripoff of Fifty Shades of Grey but worse), Dolittle (one of Robert Downey’s Jr.’s first forays after being Tony Stark for years), Fantasy Island (a remake/”re-imagining” that fell flat on its face), and Sia’s Music (the biggest disaster of them all). Acting nominees for worst performances include Robert Downey Jr. for Dolittle, Adam Sandler for Hubie Halloween, Glenn Close for Hillbilly Elegy, and Maddie Ziegler for Music.
Standout worst performances also go to stars like Anne Hathaway and Katie Holmes. Both were nominated for two worst movie performances. Hathaway was nominated for The Last Thing He Wanted and Roald Dahl’s The Witches, and Holmes was nominated for Brahms: The Boy II and The Secret: Dare to Dream. Bruce Willis joins these actors with three nominations for Breach, Hard Kill, and Survive the Night.
And we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that some titles got more than one nomination. Tying off together with 6 Razzie nominations are 365 Days and Dolittle. Fantasy Island has five nominations, with two being from the worst supporting actress. Sia’s Music has four nominations, which are a surprise to no one, as well. Hillbilly Elegy, Hubie Halloween, and The Wrong Missy are tied, with three nominations each. And Absolute Proof finishes things off with two nominations.
The Official 41st Razzie Nominations Video is available at RazzieChannel. Razzie Members made up of 1,090 from all 50 U.S. States and over two dozen foreign countries, cast their ballots online. They will each select their five top contenders in nine categories from Worst Picture to Worst Screen Combo and Worst Director.
