The Razzie Awards Quiz

While the Oscars are undoubtedly a large-scale global event that attracts a lot of attention, its stark opposite – the Razzies – has built up its following too over the years. What began in 1981 from someone’s living room alcove has now grown in size and shape, worthy of making headlines when the nominations are announced. The Golden Raspberry Awards, or better known as the ‘Razzies’, recognize the worst in cinema for the year gone by. They usually pick on the big movies and stars, no doubt benefiting from the coverage that those names will receive, and yet, not many would call their nominations harsh. The nominations are out for 2016 (from the list of movies released in 2015) and you can read them here. Fifty Shades of GreyPixels, Jupiter Ascending, and Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 lead the race with 6 nominations each. Last year’s Oscar winners, Eddie Redmayne and Juliane Moore are also not spared, with a nomination for their roles in Jupiter Ascending and Seventh Son respectively. The category of ‘Razzie Redeemer’, introduced last year for those who have got their act together again, includes the names of Elizabeth Banks, M. Night Shyamalan, Will Smith and Sylvester Stallone this year.
