‘TRANSFORMERS: Age of Extinction’ leads the 2015 Razzie Award nominations.
The science fiction action movie which stars Mark Wahlberg and Stanley Tucci has racked up seven nominations for the Golden Raspberry Awards, which celebrate the worst films from the past 12 months.
The movie – directed by Michael Bay – is up for Worst Picture, Worst Screenplay and Worst Director, as well as Worst Sequel, Worst Screen Combo and Worst Supporting Actress and Actor for stars Nicola Peltz and Kelsey Grammer.
Cameron Diaz has also been slammed in the nominations, being shortlisted for Worst Actress for ‘The Other Woman’ and Worst Supporting Actress for ‘Annie’, and Worst Screen Combo along with Jason Segel.
The star of ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West’, Seth MacFarlane, was the most criticised male, as he is up for Worst Actor, Worst Director, and Worst Screen Combo along with Charlize Theron.
Elsewhere on the list, ‘Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas’ and ‘The Legend of Hercules’ feature in the Worst Picture category, and received six nods in total, as do ‘Left Behind’ and ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’. However, an additional category added for the 2015 ceremony aims to celebrate previous Razzie winners who have gone on to perform admirably, with Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Mike Myers, Keanu Reeves and Kristen Stewart all up for the Redeemer Award.
The spoof ceremony – which has been held annually since 1981 – will take place on February 21, one evening before the Oscars. – BANG!
