(CBS SF/AP) – The Razzies announcement comes ahead of Thursday’s Oscar nominations. Winners for the 34th annual Razzies will be announced March 1, the night before the 86th annual Academy Awards. While far less star-studded than other award shows, past winners like Berry and Sandra Bullock have sometimes shown up in person to claim their gold spray-painted prizes.
Alice@97.3’s morning show Sarah & Vinnie vocally starred as radio hosts in the film “Flight” starring Denzel Washington. Vinnie Hasson asked if they were nominated for their work on the film. “Did we get one for Flight? I thought our work was pretty good…” proclaims Vinnie. Lucky for both them, their work was passed. Inside Alice’s “Looking Glass,” watch as the morning duo talk about this year’s nominations:
“Grown Ups 2” is making the most noise at this year’s Golden Raspberry Awards. The silly comedy sequel about four childhood friends starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock and David Spade led the Razzie lineup Tuesday with eight nominations, including worst picture, sequel, ensemble, screenplay, lead actor for Sandler, supporting actor for Taylor Lautner, supporting actress for Salma Hayek and director for Dennis Dugan.
Sandler is no a stranger to the Razzies, which launched in 1980 as a spoof of Hollywood’s awards season. He won the worst actor trophy last year for the man-child comedy “That’s My Boy,” and his 2011 cross-dressing comedy “Jack and Jill” made Razzie history the year before with a record 10 awards, with Sandler winning both the worst actor and actress prizes. Forbes, meanwhile, recently named Sandler Hollywood’s most overpaid actor.
This year’s other worst-picture nominees are the Wild West romp “The Lone Ranger” starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, Tyler Perry’s holiday comedy “A Madea Christmas,” sci-fi coming-of-age story “After Earth” starring Will and Jaden Smith, and comedy anthology “Movie 43” featuring the likes of Kate Winslet, Richard Gere, Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry. The past year had quite a few major films tank at the box office.
“After Earth,” “A Madea Christmas” and “Movie 43” are tied with six nods each. In addition to worst picture, screenplay and ensemble nominations, they’re also in worst actor, actress and supporting actor slots for Will and Jaden Smith of “After Earth,” Perry and Larry the Cable Guy of “A Madea Christmas,” and Berry and Naomi Watts of “Movie 43.”
