The Best of the Worst: The 2016 Razzie Awards Nominations

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Fantastic Four 2015

The Golden Globe Awards kicked off the awards season for 2016, which means all eyes are now pointed toward the next major movie awards ceremony. No, not the Oscars®, but the considerably less prestigious (but no less entertaining) Razzies®. This year’s crop of films determined to be the worst of the year are filled with big budget flops like Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four and lowest-common-denominator comedies like Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2. Repeat offenders Katherine Heigl and Adam Sandler remain contenders for their abysmal performances in Pixels and Home Sweet Hell. Check out the full list of potential winners (or is that losers?) below. The Razzies® will be announced the night before the Oscars® in an intentionally tacky ceremonies scheduled for 8pm/PST on Saturday, February 27.
