Some viewers might've thought Fifty Shades of Grey was steamy, but the team behind the Razzies wasn't so titillated. The flick has scooped six Golden Raspberry nominations, including all the good bits: worst film, actor, actress, director, screenplay, and screen combo, per the Hollywood Reporter. Also not so beloved by the Razzies was Kevin James, who nabbed four nods, including worst actor and supporting actor. More lowlights:

  • Worst picture nominees: Fantastic Four, Fifty Shades of Grey, Jupiter Ascending, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, and Pixels.

  • Worst actor: Johnny Depp for Mortdecai, Jamie Dornan for Fifty Shades of Grey, James for Paul Blart Mall Cop 2, Adam Sandler for The Cobbler and Pixels, and Channing Tatum for Jupiter Ascending.
  • Worst actress: Katherine Heigl for Home Sweet Hell, Dakota Johnson for Fifty Shades of Grey, Mila Kunis for Jupiter Ascending, Jennifer Lopez for The Boy Next Door, and Gwyneth Paltrow for Mortdecai.
  • The only award nominees might actually hope to win is the Razzie Redeemer Award, given to an "all-time Razzie champ" who turns things around, per Reuters. Fighting for this year's prize are Elizabeth Banks, M. Night Shyamalan, Will Smith, and Sylvester Stallone.
