Worst Picture at the Razzie Awards is a close two-way race according to the combined predictions of Expert film journalists we’ve polled, 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.
Four experts are currently betting on the Razzies, and all of them agree the ill-fated superhero reboot “Fantastic Four” will take the prize, giving it overwhelming 1/10 odds: Matt Atchity (Rotten Tomatoes), Edward Douglas (Weekend Warrior), Tariq Khan (Fox News) and Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby).
However, the rest of our prediction groups are divided between “Fantastic Four” and the erotic romance “Fifty Shades of Grey,” which was a blockbuster hit despite being poorly received by critics. Three out of five editors – Chris Beachum, Rob Licuria and Sheehan – say “Fantastic” will claim the ignominious honor, while Marcus Dixon and I say it will be “Fifty Shades.”
Our Top 24 Users are also divided. Thirteen are predicting “Fantastic Four,” while nine others are backing “Fifty Shades.” The last two are going out on a limb for “Pixels,” Adam Sandler‘s critically drubbed sci-fi action comedy in which aliens attack Earth in the form of video games.
