The nominations for the 39th annual Razzie Awards have been announced. The awards show "honors" the worst films of 2018.
This year's nominees for worst picture, as opposed to the Oscars' best picture, include Gotti, The Happytime Murders, Robin Hood, Winchester and the "comedy whose own ads admit it 'doesn't have a clue,'" the Razzies said in its announcement, Holmes & Watson.
Nominees for worst acting include John Travolta for Gotti, Melissa McCarthy for The Happytime Murders and Life of the Party, Bruce Willis for Death Wish and Jennifer Garner for Peppermint. The "best-known Razzie repeat offender" Donald Trump is also nominated for his appearances through archival footage in the documentaries Death of a Nation and Fahrenheit 11/9.
The 2019 Razzie Awards nominations were announced Sunday via a video on the Razzies Awards YouTube channel. The 39th annual Razzie Awards will take place Feb. 23, the night before the 91st Academy Awards.
Meanwhile, on Jan. 28, the Razzie revealed the five contenders for the Razzie Redeemer Award, given to a performer or studio "who redeemed themselves from Razzie-favorites to critic’s picks. We hope we might have had a tinge of influence in their progression."
The nominees are Melissa McCarthy (nominated for both an Oscar and two Razzies this year), Tyler Perry, director Peter Farrelly, the Transformers franchise and Sony Animation Studio. The winner be be selected by a public vote for the first time via the Razzies' website. "Usually the Razzie Organizers choose the winner for this particular category, but the choices were so intriguing we wanted to open it up to public voting," organizers said in a release. Past recipients include Ben Affleck, Mel Gibson and Sylvester Stallone.
