While many films strive to win an Academy Award, some don’t quite cut the mustard. However, those films have their own special awards, the Golden Raspberry’s, or as they are most commonly known the Razzies.
For the last 35 years, the Razzies have been given out to the worst films of the year, and this year’s list of finalists is full of epic cinema failures for the year of 2014. This year’s big winners (or losers) include Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Transformers: Age of Extinction, and I, Frankenstein.
This year’s best picture category is filled with quality contenders. The favorite is likely the Nicholas Cage Sci-fi film Left Behind, which deals with the mysterious events of a religious happening.
A potential dark horse could be The Legend of Hercules, whose main star Kelan Lutz proved he was indeed one of Hollywood’s worst up-and-coming actors.
Lutz is also on the short list for worst actor, which also includes Nicholas Cage (Left Behind) and Johhny Depp (Transcendence). However, don’t rule out Arnold Schwarzenegger, as his role in the film Sabotage was on par with his less than stellar performance in Jingle All The Way.
