Don’t fret, Jennifer Aniston and all Razzies contenders. Just because you’re on the Razzies short list to receive nominations doesn’t mean you’re completely out of luck at the Oscars. Just ask Sandra Bullock, who in 2009 won the Oscar for Best Actress (“The Blind Side”) and the Razzie for Worst Actress (“All About Steve”) in the same weekend.
And just last year, Disney flop “The Lone Ranger” found itself in a similar situation in terms of its awards trajectory, as it was nominated by both kudos. So, we wanna know: Which of this year’s Razzies contenders have the best chance of finding redemption at the Oscars?
She’s on the Razzies short list as Worst Actress for “Horrible Bosses 2,” but Aniston is also one of the five frontrunners predicted to be nominated at the Oscars as Best Actress for “Cake.” Wouldn’t it be great if she won both kudos in the same year, like Bullock? Talk about a potentially humbling experience for this ex-“Friend”-turned-movie-star.
It’s on the Razzies short list as Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel, Worst Screenplay, Worst Screen Combo (the Rock Monsters) and Worst Director (Darren Aronofsky). But according to our Oscar odds, “Noah” could very well get the last laugh this year in the following races: Best Song (“Mercy Is”), Best Score, Best Production Design and Best Makeup and Hairstyling.
“Transformers: Age of Extinction“
It’s on the Razzies short list a bunch of times: Worst Picture, Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel, Worst Screenplay, Worst Screen Combo (Any Two Robots, Actors or Robotic Actors), Worst Director (Michael Bay), Worst Supporting Actor (Kelsey Grammer, T.J. Miller) and Worst Supporting Actress (Sophie Miles, Nicola Peltz). But be prepared for an Oscar onslaught from the latest in the robot franchise, where nominations could include Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing, Best Visual Effects and Best Song (“Battle Cry”).
“Exodus: Gods and Kings“
It’s on the Razzies short list as Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel, however, watch out for this Bible epic in the Oscar races for Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, Best Production Design and Best Score.
He’s on the Razzies short list as Worst Actor and Worst Screen Combo for “Transcendence,” but Depp is also a contender to receive an Oscar nod as Best Supporting Actor for the musical-comedy “Into the Woods.” Could magic strike twice for Depp? Don’t forget, last year his “The Lone Ranger” “won” the Razzie for Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel, but it lost both of its Oscar bids (Best Visual Effects and Best Makeup and Hairstyling).
Razzies voting ends on Jan. 10. Nominations will be unveiled on January 14 — one day before Oscar bids are announced.
