Fifty Shades Of Grey Receives Nominations For The Razzies

Fifty Shades of Grey has received nominations for the Razzies. The movie is in contention with other worst films of the year.

Fifty Shades of Grey also received nominations for worst picture, worst director, worst actor and worst actress in the six Razzies. Fifty shades of Grey, the film version of EL James' erotic novel detailing the sadomasochistic affair between student Anastasia Steele and billionaire Christian Grey, is also nominated for worst screenplay.

Next on the list is Jupiter Ascending, Pixels, and Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 with six nods each for the Golden Raspberry Awards, to be announced next month. Superhero film Fantastic Four, sci-fi adventure Jupiter Ascending, comedy Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 and Adam Sandler's video game film Pixels complete the line-up for worst picture. Its stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are cited for worst screen combo.

Sam Taylor-Johnson, nominated as worst director, has since pulled out of directing its planned two sequels. The next Fifty Shades film is due for release next year. Sandler is Razzie-nominated for a fifth consecutive year and could pick up awards for worst actor, for Pixels and The Cobbler, and worst screen combo, for "Adam Sandler and any pair of shoes" in the latter film.

Oscar-winner Gwyneth Paltrow gets a worst actress nod for comedy heist Mortdecai - with co-star Johnny Depp scoring two nominations, for worst actor and worst screen combo for his partnership with his glued-on moustache.

The awards  was launched in 1980 as a spoof of the Oscars. Nominees for the Razzies have been named the day before the Oscars shortlist is announced. The winners will be announced in Hollywood on 27 February - the day before the Oscars ceremony - having been voted for online by around 900 members of the Razzies committee.

Those "honoured" for the worst films of the past 12 months will win a gold spray-painted trophy worth $4.97 (£3.44) if they bother turning up - but unlike the Oscars, the winners usually stay away.
