Razzie 'favourite' Adam Sandler is up for yet another Worst Actor gong and newbies Selena Gomez and Lady Gaga earn their first nods
It's awards season, which means it is the time when the stars of Hollywood gather together to congratulate themselves on another successful year of moviemaking. It is also the period when some of Hollywood's more questionable tastes are exposed and then routinely mocked, thanks to the annual Golden Raspberry Awards.
All of the Grown Ups 2 cast are up for an award, but it is Sandler who earns the most recognition
An established 'favourite' with the Razzies committee, Adam Sandler is up for his 19th, 20th and 21st Razzie nomination and might make it three Worst Actor wins in a row, with his role in Grown Ups 2 up against Johnny Depp in The Lone Ranger, Ashton Kutcher in Jobs, Jaden Smith in After Earth and Sylvester Stallone for pretty much all of his movies from 2013; Bullet to the Head, Escape Plan, and Grudge Match.
Sandler's Grown Ups 2 leads the way in Razzie nominations, also being nominated for Worst Movie, Worst Supporting Actor for Taylor Lautner, Worst Supporting Actress for Salma Hayek, Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel, Worst Director for Dennis Dugan. Sandler earns two more nominations for his work on the screenplay with Tim Herlihy and Fred Wolf and for the rest of the cast, who all all nominated for Worst Screen Combo.
After Earth gets recognised considerably too, with Jaden Smith's Worst Actor nod being joined by nominations for Worst Picture, Worst Supporting Actor for Will Smith, Worst Screen Combo for the father and son team, Worst Director for M. Night Shyamalan and Worst Screenplay for Shyamalan, Gary Whitta and the elder Smith.
