The Razzie Awards will spread the wealth according to the combined predictions of Experts we’ve polled from top media outlets, Editors who cover awards year-round for Gold Derby, the Top 24 Users who got the highest scores predicting last year’s Razzie winners and hundreds of total Users who make up our largest and often savviest bloc of predictors.
Out of the nine categories we’re predicting, “Fantastic Four” will lead the way with three wins: Worst Picture, Worst Director (Josh Trank) and Worst Remake, Ripoff or Sequel. It also contends for Worst Screen Combo, which we’re not predicting this year.
“Fifty Shades of Grey” follows close behind with two predicted wins: Worst Actress (Dakota Johnson) and Worst Screenplay. Co-star Jamie Dornan is also nominated for Worst Actor, but is projected to lose that award to one of the Razzies’ favorite targets, Adam Sandler (“The Cobbler” and “Pixels“). However, Dornan and Johnson could also also win together as Worst Screen Combo.
The supporting awards will be won an pair of uncharacteristically prestigious performers, both of whom are also nominated for Oscar this year. Eddie Redmayne will take Worst Supporting Actor for “Jupiter Ascending“; he won an Oscar last year for “The Theory of Everything” and is nominated again this year for “The Danish Girl.”
And Rooney Mara is the frontrunner to win Worst Supporting Actress for playing a whitewashed Tiger Lily in “Pan” – the character is traditionally portrayed as Native American. But Mara contends for Oscar on Sunday night for her performance in “Carol.”
