The 38th Razzie nominations have been announced

Where is Geostorm?!

Awards season continues this week with the nominations for the 38th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards. Contrary to every other award show of the year, seeing your name on the list isn’t particularly gratifying. The Razzies have come to represent the worst that Hollywood has offered up for the year through phoned in performances, unnecessary sequels, and poorly written scripts.

The usual troupe of nominees is here once again with the 50 Shades, and Transformers sequels picking up where they left off. Some newcomers are The Emoji Movie, and the dark universe destroying The Mummy. The big surprise for me is to see art-house darling Darren Aronofsky on this list. I know the response to mother! was very polarized but didn’t think it would undo all the previous work he has done. Then again I still have yet to see it so maybe I’ll agree after watching it. Another surprise is that longtime Razzie punchline Adam Sandler is not nominated at all for the second year in a row. Could he be in line for the Razzie Redeemer this year? Find out when the awards are announced on March 3.
