39th Golden Raspberry Nominations

The 39th Golden Raspberry Award Nominees have been announced! If you aren’t a bad movie fan, the Golden Raspberry Awards (commonly referred to as the Razzies) are the bizarro Oscars. The awards feature the worst of what film had to offer in the preceding year.

The biggest takeaway; Gotti, Holmes & Watson, and The Happytime Murders were probably the three worst major motion pictures of 2018. Each film earned six nominations. John Travolta, Johnny Depp, John C. Reilly (bad year to be a John) and Will Farrell are all nominated in two categories. Fifty Shades Freed’s Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan may have avoided the Worst Screen Combo nomination, but the film’s writing and direction have both captured the Razzcademy’s attention. One final note, I’d like to congratulate Melania Trump as she is the first First Lady to receive a Razzie nomination! Sadly, her husband cannot claim his nomination as a first, as Dubya was nominated in 2004 for Fahrenheit 9/11. I’m rooting for you, Melania. You’re the first Trump to achieve something that doesn’t alienate a large majority of the world’s population.

Without further ado, I’m proud to give you the full list of nominations for the 39th Golden Raspberry Awards!
