‘The Interview’ and Kirk Cameron make Razzies’ official short list

GOLD DERBY LEAKS THE RAZZIES BALLOT: Razzie Awards voting is now under way, which means the year’s worst films and performances have been whittled down to a short list full of lots of hate for “The Interview” and Kirk Cameron and his “Saving Christmas.”

Both flicks are among the 12 cited for Worst Picture, but voters are permitted to add a write-in choice while selecting five nominees per cateory. The Razzie ballot is very loosey-goosey. For example, in the category for Worst Screen Combo, voter options include “James Franco & EITHER Seth Rogen or Randall Park (Kim Jong Un) / THE INTERVIEW” and “Kirk Cameron and His Ego / Kirk Cameron’s SAVING CHRISTMAS.”

In addition, Cameron appears solo in the category for Worst Actor, while “Saving Christmas” is also cited in the races for Worst Supporting Actress (Brigette Cameron), Worst Director and Screenplay.

Also making the Worst Actor list: Franco and Rogen get separate mentions. So does Adam Sandler, but, strangely, his “Blended” isn’t up for Worst Picture. Perhaps that is the most shocking thing about the short list considering Sandler’s been on a Razzie roll lately, winning five in just the past few years (six total).

Seth MacFarlane‘s critically lambasted “A Million Ways to Die in the West” has the most mentions on the short list (eight), followed by six for “The Expendables 3” and five for “Saving Christmas,” “Sex Tape” and  “Transformers: Age of Extinction” (“Trannies”).
 
Voting ends on Jan. 10. Nominations will be unveiled on January 14 — one day before Oscar bids are announced.
