Robert Downey Jr., Mike Lindell (the My Pillow guy) and perennial contender Adam Sandler are

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. Topping the ignoble record is Universal’s universal bomb Dolittle, which scored 6 nominations, together with worst movie, worst remake, worst actor for Robert Downey Jr., worst director for Stephen Gaghan, worst screenplay and worst monitor combo for RDJ and his what-was-he-pondering Welsh accent.

Also notching 6 nominations was the Polish film 365 Days, a tawdry remake of the artistically questionable Fifty Shades of Grey. Barbara Bialowas and Tomasz Mandes’ erotic drama is a surprise contender as the Razzies tweaked their principles to account for the most incredible yr (that is, a significant absence of awful films finding a broad launch).

Mired in controversy, 365 Days faced a campaign to have it eliminated from Netflix. 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.

Sia’s directorial debut Songs, which was explained by The Hollywood Reporter’s reviewer as a “sentimental atrocity so cringe-inducing it need to come with an advisory warning for anyone with preexisting shoulder or back again accidents,” grabbed a astonishingly very low four nominations: worst movie, worst director, worst actor (Kate Hudson) and worst supporting actress (Maddie Ziegler).

Along with perennial Razzie contenders Adam Sandler and David Spade, Mike “The My Pillow Guy” Lindell scored a worst actor nomination for Absolute Evidence, the wingnut conspiratorial documentary he self-financed that statements the 2020 election was “stolen” from a few-time Razzie winner Donald Trump. The film is also between the contenders for worst film.
