Which loser films will win at least one prize this year: the Razzie Award for worst of 2013?
Could one of last year’s champs – Adam Sandler – return to defend his crown with “Grown Ups 2“? The Johnny Depp bomb “The Lone Ranger” certainly will be high on some voters’ lists. And the original Planet Hollywood trio of aging heroes — Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, and Bruce Willis — have a load of movies to consider.
In their 33-year history, the Razzies have honored a wide variety of films for Worst Picture: comedies like “The Love Guru” and “Jack and Jill,” sci-fi epics like “Battlefield Earth” and “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” hits like “Wild Wild West,” and notorious bombs like “Gigli” and “The Last Airbender.”
In recent years, the Razzie for Worst Actor has favored the stars of unsuccessful comedies, including Mike Myers (“The Love Guru”), Eddie Murphy (“Norbit”), Ashton Kutcher (“Killers” and “Valentine’s Day”), and the Wayans Brothers (“Little Man”).
Previous winners of Worst Actress have ranged from tabloid targets like Lindsay Lohan (“I Know Who Killed Me”) and Paris Hilton (“The Hottie and the Nottie”), to singers trying their hand at acting like Mariah Carey (“Glitter”), the Spice Girls (“Spice World”), and multiple winner Madonna.
Last year, the final installment in the “Twilight” series — Breaking Dawn: Part 2″ won seven of its 11 bids: Worst Picture, Worst Actress (Kristen Stewart), Worst Supporting Actor (Taylor Lautner), Worst Ensemble, Worst Director (Bill Condon), Worst Remake/Rip-Off/Sequel, and Worst Onscreen Couple (Lautner and Mackenzie Foy).
Not to be outdone, Razzie regular Sandler was chosen as Worst Actor for “That’s My Boy,” which also received Worst Screenplay. The year before, Sandler’s movie “Jack and Jill” swept the Razzies with 10 awards. And singing superstar Rihanna won Worst Supporting Actress for “Battleship.”
