Like Eddie Redmayne, Rooney Mara is nominated at both the Razzies and the Oscars this weekend. She earned academy raves for her performance in “Carol,” but her work as Tiger Lily in “Pan” was, well, panned. Now she’s the frontrunner to win Worst Supporting Actress 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.
Out of seven experts predicting the Razzies, six are betting on Mara, giving her 1/4 odds: Thelma Adams (Gold Derby), Matt Atchity (Rotten Tomatoes), Tariq Khan (Fox News), Tom O’Neil (Gold Derby), Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby) and Adnan Virk (ESPN).
Our editors are also split. Five out of six of us are predicting Mara: Marcus Dixon, Rob Licuria, O’Neil, Sheehan and myself. Chris Beachum is going out on a limb forecasting Julianne Moore (“Seventh Son“).
But our Top 24 Users disagree with the overall consensus. They’re split four ways, with nine of them actually predicting Kaley Cuoco (“Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip” and “The Wedding Ringer”). Eight others say it will be Mara, four pick Seyfried and one picks Moore.
None of our experts, editors or top users are predicting the last nominee in the category, Michelle Monaghan (“Pixels“). That’s surprising because while every actress in this category is a first-time nominee, only Monaghan is nominated for a film that is also up for Worst Picture, which may put her at greater risk of incurring the Razzies’ harsh judgment.
