    I actually think the Field and Lewis nods were somewhat deserved. I would, however, add…

    Cruising
    Heaven’s Gate
    Michael Caine and Nancy Allen, Dressed to Kill
    James Coco, Only When I Laugh
    Michael Douglas, Basic Instinct

    Didn’t know Danny DeVito had gotten that nomination. Sometimes (sometimes) I even think he would’ve made a fine Oscar nominee.

    I don’t remember much about the Razzies, but I do know that Dakota Johnson was nominated this year for 50 Shades, which is ridiculous as it was her performance that elevated the otherwise shitty material. The movie wasn’t even as bad as it was supposed to be.

    How come no one has mentioned Brian De Palma’s magnificent work Directing Scarface disgracefully getting a Razzie nomination and not a oh-so-snubbed OSCAR nomination?! ;(

    De Palma was nominated here for his brilliant work on Body Double too. Insane.

    And indeed, I also think DeVito is almost Oscar-calibur in Batman Returns. Such a sad, grotesque, completely convincing performance. He’s never been better.

    S.O.B. is a terrific mention too – the film is laugh-out-loud hilarious (and what a cast!), but it rubbed a lot of folks in Hollywood the wrong way at the time. Still, it nabbed Globe and WGA nods, so the Razzie recognition is awfully eyebrow-raising in hindsight.

    For me, it’s The Flintstones. It’s not that bad. I mean yes Rosie O’Donnell as Betty was very questionable, but John Goodman was a perfect Fred, and as a fun family film, I don’t mind putting it on once in a while. I love the production design, it looks exactly how I would think Bedrock would look if it was in live-action.

    Yea I think Dakota Johnson was clearly a case of the Razzie’s just wanting to make a point of shitting on 50 Shades of Grey. I mean the movie was terrible don’t get me wrong, but Johnson was the only good thing about and somehow managed to actually give a decent performance, so calling her the worst actress of the year was totally undeserved. I’ll give them worst couple though that was… I don’t know it was something.

    The oddest one has to be James Coco getting a worst supporting actor nomination for the same performance he got a best supporting actor Oscar nomination. (Only When I Laugh)

    Sadly, I’ve always suspected Coco was nominated simply because he portrayed a flamboyantly gay character – it’s really a sweet, funny, scene-stealing turn.

    Amy Irving was also Oscar/Razzie-nominated, though that’s more understandable, given how divisive Yentl was and the silliness of some of Irving’s dialogue. (For what it’s worth, I don’t think Irving was particularly Oscar or Razzie-worthy.)
