Transformers sequel leads Razzies worst-of list

2015-01-14 08:40

Los Angeles – Transformers is rolling out with the most nominations at this year’s Golden Raspberry Awards.

The action sequel starring Mark Wahlberg alongside the morphing robots led the Razzie line-up yesterday with seven nominations, including worst picture, worst sequel, worst screenplay and worst screen combo.

Transformers: Age of Extinction is also up for worst director for Michael Bay, worst supporting actress for Nicola Peltz and worst supporting actor for Kelsey Grammer, who was also recognised for his supporting roles in The Expendables 3, Legends of Oz and Think Like a Man Too.

This year’s other worst picture nominees are Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas, Left Behind, The Legend of Hercules and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The faith-based comedy Saving Christmas and the Kellan Lutz action flick Legend of Hercules each follow Transformers with six nominations in such categories as worst director, worst screen combo and worst actor for Cameron and Lutz.

The contenders for the Razzies, which launched in 1980 as a spoof of Hollywood’s awards season, comes ahead of tomorrow’s Oscar nominations.

The winners for the 35th annual Razzies will be announced February 21, the night before the 87th annual Academy Awards. While far less star-studded than other award shows, past recipients including Halle Berry and Sandra Bullock have shown up in person to claim their gold spray-painted prizes.
