Please discuss… well… films that should’ve been nominated for Razzies, but weren’t.
Please keep in mind that this is for films released in 1980 or later. If you want to comment about films released in 1979 or earlier, comment on the “Pre-1980 Razzie choices” thread I created, because films released in 1979 or earlier couldn’t have been nominated for Razzies because the Razzies didn’t exist then.
Also keep in mind that you can discuss films that were nominated for Razzies, as long as you’re referring to a specific category that they weren’t nominated for.April 1, 2018 at 9:01 am #1202522479
Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever – The film with a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes was snubbed across the board! Should’ve been nominated for Worst Picture, Worst Actor (Antonio Banderas), Worst Actress (Lucy Liu), Worst Director, Worst Screenplay and Worst Screen Couple (Banderas and Liu)
The Master of Disguise – Only nomination it got was Worst Supporting Actress for Bo Derek’s cameo. It should’ve got more nominations for Worst Picture, Worst Actor (Dana Carvey), Worst Director and Worst Screenplay.
Rollerball – Only Rebecca Romijn got a nomination for this film! Should’ve also been nominated for Worst Picture, Worst Actor (Chris Klein), Worst Director (John McTiernan), Worst Supporting Actor (LL Cool J), Worst Screenplay and Worst Remake or Sequel.

How Dragonball Evolution and Super Mario Bros. got ZERO Razzie nominations will always be a mystery to me. Justin Chatwin especially deserved a Worst Actor nod as Goku in the former failed anime adaptation.April 2, 2018 at 9:11 am #1202522937
Hot Pursuit: How this film got zero nominations despite being one of the most loathed films of 2015 by both critics and audiences (I had it as my #1 worst film of that year) is appalling. Both Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara were awful. They had no chemistry, and the one scene where they pretend to be lesbians is one of the most cringeworthy and homophobic things I have ever seen.
Fist Fight: My #1 worst film of 2017. This is one of the absolute worst films I have ever seen in my life. It is the most offensive portrayal of a school I have ever seen. Both Charlie Day and Ice Cube are reduced to horrific racial stereotypes (wimpy white guy and angry black guy), and the fact that Jillian Bell as a counselor who openly talks about her desire to have sex with her male students is played off as comedy is just appalling. And don’t get me started on the talent show scene involving Charlie Day’s daughter. Children constantly dropping profanity is NOT funny!!! I will NEVER understand how audiences like the one in my theater found this funny. I admit raunchy comedies aren’t always my favorite, but even I can acknowledge the good ones. But this, I don’t understand how ANYONE can find this funny!!!!
Legends Of Oz: Dorothy’s Return: While this film did win its sole Razzie nomination for Kelsey Grammer (who also technically won for The Expendables 3, Transformers: Age Of Extinction and Think Like A Man Too) the fact that it got nominated for nothing else is appalling. It absolutely should have gotten nominations for Worst Picture, Worst Director, and Worst Sequel, because it tries to present itself as literally a direct sequel to The Wizard Of Oz. Also, Martin Short should have gotten a Worst Supporting Actor nomination. He was so miscast and annoying as The Jester that I consider him to be one of the worst movie villains of all time.
The Emoji Movie: While this film rightfully won all the awards it did at the Razzies, it was still missing some key categories, particularly the acting. T.J. Miller should have been nominated for Worst Actor as Gene, James Corden should have been nominated for Worst Supporting Actor as Hi-5 (he makes Jar-Jar Binks look like Albert Einstein!), and Maya Rudolph should have been nominated for Worst Supporting Actress as The Smiler Emoji (basically an animated version of Kellyanne Conway, who I cannot stand at all).

ant-man (2015)April 3, 2018 at 7:53 am #1202523507
R.I.P.D. somehow didn’t receive a single nomination. Should’ve been nominated across the board. That thing is utter trash.April 3, 2018 at 11:11 am #1202523614
1989’s Little MonstersApril 3, 2018 at 9:49 pm #1202523857
Norm of the North and Nine Lives were the two worst movies of 2016 and the Razzies nominated both movies zero times. That is what made me lose are credibility for the Razzies.
Also Stephen Lang should’ve won Worst Supporting Actor for Avatar.
FYC: Ready Player One. Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects, Original Score, Production Design, Director and BEST PICTURE (make it happen Oscars!!)
