M. Night Shyamalan (Perennial RAZZIE nominee & “winner,” director of The Visit)
Will Smith (For following up After Earth with Concussion)
Sylvester Stallone (All-Time RAZZIE Champ, award contender forCreed)

Wow. Some prophetic internet dudes are no doubt laughing at all those Fantastic Four nominations. I mean, some of us thought that movie would be terrible but who knew it would be this level bad? Adam Sandler is quickly becoming the Meryl Streep of the Razzies. My personal favorite nomination? Adam Sandler and any pair of shoes.

Also, how about Eddie Redmayne going from from Oscar winner to Razzie contender after that weird performance in Jupiter Ascending? That was the first movie I saw in 2015 and I’m proud to say I still watch film.

It’s not all negative, either. Last year Ben Affleck won the Razzie redeemer award and rightfully so. I’ll gladly place bets on Sylvester Stallone or M. Night Shyamalan for this year. The winner of overall worst film in 2015 was Saving Christmas. Hard to top that, but something tells me I’m not the only who almost gave up on life entirely after viewing the Paul Blart 2 trailer for the 2,000th time while trying to watch actual movies at the theater. I think I was about two viewings away from total loss of mental and physical control.

Here’s to giving bad movies the recognition they deserve, GeekNation. Disagree with anything in the list? Who’s your vote for redeemer of the year?

    So, I’ve only seen one film on all of these lists and it was Fifty Shades Of Grey… which is why I disagree with the inclusion of Sam Taylor-Johnson in the list. While the film overall was whatever, her direction was the only thing that made it even remotely watchable. Say what you will about the rest of the film, but it was shot beautifully.
