It’s that time of the year again to identify the “Worst of the Worst” in the movie business. The not so prestigious Golden Raspberry (Razzie) awards have really outdone themselves with a couple of surprises on the list of nominees this year. Johnny Depp, Naomi Watts, Jaden Smith and Will Smith are among the surprise nominees, Razzie regulars Adam Sandler, Halle Berry and Sylvester Stallone are also back for another year of shame.

Adam Sandler’s “Grown Ups 2” leads the nomination list with 8 nods. “Machete Kills”, “Tyler Perry’s Temptation”, “After Earth”, “Movie 43” and “The Lone Ranger” are among the most nominated movies to receive Razzie awards.

The Razzies will be handed out a night before the Oscars ceremony on March 2. The not so prestigious award-show is raising funds via Indiegogo.com “to put on a high-end show this year and pave the way for the first ever RAZZIE Awards Broadcast in 2015.”
