'Grown Ups 2' leads this year's Razzie nominations

Posted by · 9:31 am · January 15th, 2014

“Grown Ups 2” is the clear “winner” of this year’s Razzie nominations, although the voters saved plenty of vitriol for summer flops “The Lone Ranger” and “After Earth,” and the star-studded comedy anthology “Movie 43.”

“Grown Ups'” eight nominations include worst picture, sequel, screenplay, lead actor (Adam Sandler), supporting actor (Taylor Lautner), supporting actress (Salma Hayek), ensemble (which also includes Kevin James, Chris Rock and David Spade), and director (Dennis Dugan). The latter will face, among others, Tyler Perry and “The 13 People Who Directed “Movie 43.'”

The nominations also single out such annual punching bags as M. Night Shyamalan, Lindsay Lohan, Halle Berry, and Sylvester Stallone, plus pop stars-turned-movies stars like Lady Gaga (“Machete Kills”) and Chris Brown (“Battle of the Year”).

“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2” took home last year’s Razzie for Worst Picture.
