Razzies Include Some Not-So-Surprising Nominations

By: Amanda Crum - January 15, 2014

2013 was a year full of bad movies, at least according to the nomination list for the Razzies, awards given to the worst picture and actors annually.

The list for this year’s awards includes some unsurprising titles, including “The Lone Ranger” and “Grown Ups 2″. While there were high hopes for the former–which starred Johnny Depp as Tonto and Armie Hammer as the hero–the film was a box office flop and got some pretty scathing reviews. As for “Grown Ups 2″, the film was heavily panned by critics even though the first one actually did pretty well at the box office. Star Adam Sandler was named the number one overpaid actor of 2013 after Forbes Magazine said that for every dollar Sandler made, he pulled in just $3.40 at the box office.

There are a couple of names on the list that you might not see coming, however, including Naomi Watts for “Diana”. Check out the full list of noms below.
