Robert Downey Jr., Mike Lindell (the My Pillow guy) and perennial contender Adam Sandler are between the performing nominees for the 41st annual celebration of the worst motion pictures of the earlier year.
What was the worst film from the worst 12 months at any time?
The 41st annual Razzie Awards will hope to reply that grim dilemma soon after releasing its nominations that deal with the annus horribilis that was 2020.

Welsh singer Duffy, who experienced suffered a horrific expertise of remaining drugged, kidnapped and raped, said in an open letter to the streamer that the film “glamorizes the brutal reality of intercourse trafficking, kidnapping and rape.”
Sony’s The Fantasy Island “reimaging” scored five nominations, the uncommon misfire for Blumhouse buying up citations for worst film, worst supporting actress 2 times (Maggie Q and Lucy Hale), worst screenplay and worst remake.
