Is "Transformers: Age of Extinction" the Worst Movie of 2014? See Full List of Razzie Nominations! Who Gets Redeemed?

16 January 2015 1:36 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

The Academy just announced the best in cinema of 2014 and now, here comes the Razzie saluting the worst! Michael Bay's "Transformers: Age of Extinction" receives the most nominations, all seven of them including Worst Picture and Screenplay! But somehow, Mark Wahlberg escaped the wrath of Razzie! And I thought he was horrible in the movie!

But this year, the Razzie introduces a new award. Maybe to show the softer side of Razzie! The new category is called the Redeemer Award which highlights previous Razzie regulars who redeemed themselves. My favorite is Ben Affleck who went from "Gigli" to "Argo" to "Gone Girl."

Winners of the 35th Golden Raspberry Award will be revealed on February 21st, the night before the Oscars!

Here's your complete list of Razzie nominees:

Worst Picture

"Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas"

"Left Behind"

"The Legend of Hercules"

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles"

"Transformers: Age of Extinction"

Worst Actor

Kirk Cameron, »

Razzies: 2015 Golden Raspberry Award nominations announced

14 January 2015 11:41 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With many of Hollywood’s finest busy on the awards season circuit, it wouldn’t be the same without the end of year Razzie nominations, which looks at those films that didn’t set the world alight in 2014.

It’s perhaps no surprise that it’s Michael Bay’s fourth Transformers film, Age of Extinction, that leads the way with seven Razzie nominations, including Worst Picture despite its worldwide box-office gross of over $1 billion. Bay himself is nominated for Worst Director, as well as Worst Screenplay.

Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas and The Legend of Hercules are just behind Transformers with six nominations, and join Nicholas Cage’s Left Behind and another Michael Bay production, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, in the Worst Picture category.

It’s also been another bad year for Cameron Diaz, who had three films underwhelm this year, and is nominated for Worst Actress for Sex Tape and The Other Woman, »

Die Hard: ranking the movies in order of quality

14 January 2015 10:55 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

You know what the best Die Hard is. You know what the worst is. But where do the others sit in the Die Hard league table?

A quick preamble. Over the course of the coming weeks and months, we're going to be exploring many of our favourite movie franchises, and ranking the films in order. Mainly because it gives us a further chance to talk about many of our favourite films.

Inevitably, the ordering in these cases isn't always going to come as a surprise - we go into this with the first and last place in most of these lists immediately obvious - but it's interesting to see how the movies stand in the context of each other. Police Academy week in particular should be a hoot.

When it comes to ranking the Die Hard films then, the battle is really between Die Hards 2 and 3 for second place. But »

The Nominations for the Worst Movies of 2014 Are In!

14 January 2015 9:21 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation has announced the nominations for the 35th annual Razzie Awards. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Legend of Hercules, and Transformers 4: Age of Ex-stink-Tion are leading the nominations for worst movies of the year. The only name I don't think belongs on this list of nominations is Mel Gibson for his role in The Expendables 3, because he was freakin' awesome in that!

You can check out the full announcement below, followed by the nominations list. Look it over and let us know if you agree with what they claim is the worst of 2014.

Hollywood was not happy with box office returns for 2014, their lowest-grossing year in recent history. Despite a handful of high-grossing hits, there were way more major misses — movies based on recycled premises and re-worked concepts that were already tired a decade or more ago, the cinematic equivalent of re-treaded tires. »

2015 Razzie Nominations Unveiled; Transformers And Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Among The (Dis)honorees

14 January 2015 8:32 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s awards season, and though most of the buzz right now is devoted to which titles stand a fighting chance of being included in tomorrow’s Oscar nominations, the 35th annual Golden Raspberry Awards, known as the Razzies, are here with their nominees to remind us that even that the most loathsome crap of the cinematic crop may be handled some trophies of their own next month.

The nominees for this year’s Razzies – the “winners” of which will be announced on February 21st, the night before the Oscars – are hardly surprising. Michael Bay has always been a favorite punching bag for the mock awards, and his Transformers: Age of Extinction is one of the most frequently mentioned nominees this year (the Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles also made the cut in a number of areas). The barely-remembered The Legend of Hercules shows up an awful lot as well, »

Blended and Transformers Lead the 2015 Razzie Nominations

14 January 2015 8:32 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

A big box office doesn't always mean a great film. Case in point: Transformers: Age of Extinction. Michael Bay's fourth film in the franchise is the fifth-highest-grossing movie of 2014 - and it also scored seven Golden Raspberry Award nominations. The Razzies honor the worst in film, so the fewer nominations a film gets, the better it must be. Sadly for the Adam Sandler-Drew Barrymore comedy Blended, it's all over the list too. Same goes for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Seth MacFarlane's A Million Ways to Die in the West. The full list of nominees is below, including one new category: Razzie's Redeemer Award. This one you do want; it's the filmmakers who have regained their street cred. Take a look, and stay tuned for the winners to be announced on Feb. 21, the night before the Oscars.

Razzie Nominations: ‘Transformers 4′ Leads Pack; Redeemer Award Added

14 January 2015 6:38 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Nominations for the 35th annual Razzie Awards, which satirize “the Worst Achievements in Film for 2014,” are out. Transformers: Age Of Extinction leads the field with seven; while Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas and The Legend Of Hercules are tied at six nods each.

As usual, the Razzie races were unveiled one day before the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announces its picks for the best achievements of the year in film. But are the Razzies softening at 35? A new category has been added this year for the Razzie Redeemer Award, which acknowledges “that past nominees and ‘winners’ can (and often do) go on to far far better things.” The inaugural class includes Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston and Kristen Stewart.

Elsewhere, along with Saving Christmas and billion-dollar box office hit Transformers 4, there are multiple mentions for A Million Ways To Die In The West, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles »

Transformers: Age Of Extinction Leads Golden Raspberry Nominations

14 January 2015 6:23 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It may have been the highest grossing film of last year but there is no love for Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age Of Extinction as it leads the Razzie nominations. The Razzies, or Golden Raspberry awards, is an awards ceremony with a difference; rather than applaud the best and brightest, rewards are given to those who have created the worst in cinema.

Bay has been campaigning for Oscar glory and may see today’s news as somewhat of a setback, but his bank account will have the last laugh given the incredible box office the film received. The fourth instalment in the franchise received seven nominations for Worst Picture, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Worst Rip-Off, Remake or Sequel, Worst Director, Worst Screenplay and Worst On-Screen Combo. Cameron Diaz also hasn’t faired so well with three of her films, The Other Woman, Annie and Sex Tape all picking up nominations. »

Razzie Nominations 2015: 'Transformers: Age of Extinction,' Kirk Cameron Movie Lead the Pack

14 January 2015 2:30 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The worst of the worst.

Yes, it's that time of year, where along with the best films of 2014, we honour the worst films of 2014. The Razzie nominations are out -- and they salute the worst movies and performances.

This year, "Transformers: Age of Extinction" is the worst offender with seven nominations, including worst picture and screenplay. "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas" and "The Legend of Hercules" each earned six nods, and stars like Seth MacFarlane, Cameron Diaz, Nicolas Cage, and Adam Sandler had their performances singled out.

A new category, the Redeemer Award, also honours past Razzie regulars on their recent work -- especially if they crawl out of the gutter into "real" award territory. (We're looking at you, Jennifer Aniston!)

Here's the full list of Razzie nominees:

Worst Picture

"Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas"

"Left Behind"

"The Legend of Hercules"

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles"

"Transformers: Age of Extinction"

Worst Actor

2015 Razzie Nominations: 'Transformers,' 'Blended,' 'Tmnt' Lead the Pack

13 January 2015 10:24 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The most important nominations of the awards season have been announced.

Transformers: Age of Extinction, Adam Sandler's Blended, and Kirk Cameron are the front-runners for this year's "prestigious" Golden Raspberry Awards!

News: Kim K. Wins Razzie For Worst Actress

The 35th annual Razzies, which recognize some of Hollywood's "Worst Achievements in Film," are going to be a tight race this year. Transformers: Age of Extinction leads with seven nominations, but the film is going up against some other truly hated entries such as The Legend of Hercules, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas.

Some of the more interesting nominations, however, come in the acting categories, where Blended star Adam Sandler and Tammy star Melissa McCarthy are both nominated for Worst Actor and Worst Actress respectively – despite having just won People's Choice Awards on Jan. 7.

Even more surprising is the Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel nomination for the musical Annie, which was also »

The 35th annual Golden Raspberry Awards (better known as the Razzies) nominations are out, and it was a not a good year for “Transformers,” which led the field with seven nominations.

Alien 3: the story ideas that never made it to the screen

12 January 2015 8:46 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

During its fraught production, Alien 3 went through dozens of drafts. We look at some of the story ideas that never made it to the screen...

When the credits rolled on 1986's Aliens, the inevitable question from many cinemagoers was, "What happens next?"

For 20th Century Fox, and writer-producers David Giler and Walter Hill, it took nearly six years to figure out an answer to that question. Certainly, when Aliens was in production, director James Cameron had some ideas about a sequel; he once spoke about the prospect of Ripley, Hicks and young Newt - a makeshift family thrown together by that film's events - meeting up again for a second sequel to Alien.

“I know that James Cameron had planned to have Hicks, Ripley and me in Alien 3, to have a family-type thing", Newt actress Carrie Henn said in 1995.

A year after Aliens came out, Cameron was unequivocal »

Top 10 Worst Films of 2014

6 January 2015 3:59 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Wall Street Journal reports “overall North American box-office receipts and attendance for 2014 declined more than 5% to $10.35 billion from $10.92 billion in 2013, according to box-office tracker Rentrak Corp. – the worst results since 2011.”

Kicking off 2015 with “Best of” lists and awards season on the minds of many Cinephiles, we offer our look back at the worst of 2014. Some awful, some horrendous, we were disappointed and flummoxed by some of the movies Tinseltown released into theaters (and on moviegoers) over the past 12 months.

As we shake our Wamg heads over the biggest letdowns, here we go with our Top 10 list of the Worst Films of 2014.

Dishonorable Mention: Horns

In Horns Daniel Radcliffe played a grieving young man who inexplicably grows horns from his forehead after the community he lives in finds him culpable for the death and murder of his girlfriend. Horns was a mishmash of genres that never quite fit together; crime drama, »

The Interview And A Million Ways To Die In The West Head Up The Razzies Worst Film Nominees

5 January 2015 1:55 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Five days into the new year and the movie awards season is in full swing. A chance to celebrate all of the cinematic gold bestowed upon us by filmmakers over the last 365 days, the majority of awards bodies veer towards the positive. The good, the great and the outstanding movie achievements. Of course, you can’t have yin without yang, and that customary glint of deviousness amidst the showers of compliments will soon be upon us, in the shape of the The Annual Golden Raspberry Awards.

Known informally as The Razzies, the achievements are dished out based on how bad the category nominees performed, and this year’s nominees have now been announced. Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways To Die In The West beat out its closest competitors for the esteemed honour of most nominations with a whopping eight altogether. Recent limelight comedy, The Interview, also snagged four nominations across three categories. »

‘The Interview,’ ‘Sex Tape,’ Make Razzies Shortlist

4 January 2015 12:08 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the film business gears up to honor the best films of the year at the Academy Awards, the worst are getting recognized, too.

The shortlist for the Razzies, which names the worst films of the year, has been obtained by awards site Gold Derby, listing some of the biggest grossers of the year, like “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” and others that didn’t do so well. The shortlist isn’t a concrete list of the nominations — rather, it’s a preview of the contenders for the dubious honor.

Seth McFarlene’s “A Million Ways to Die” looks like it could be the frontrunner for the awards, popping up eight times. “Sex Tape,” which garnered mostly negative reviews, is listed six times. Seth Rogen and James Franco are both on the list for worst actor for “The Interview,” as well as worst onscreen duo.
