Razzie Nominations: ‘Transformers 4’ Leads Pack; Redeemer Award Added

Nominations for the 35th annual Razzie Awards, which satirize “the Worst Achievements in Film for 2014,” are out. Transformers: Age Of Extinction leads the field with seven; while Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas and The Legend Of Hercules are tied at six nods each.

As usual, the Razzie races were unveiled one day before the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announces its picks for the best achievements of the year in film. But are the Razzies softening at 35? A new category has been added this year for the Razzie Redeemer Award, which acknowledges “that past nominees and ‘winners’ can (and often do) go on to far far better things.” The inaugural class includes Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston and Kristen Stewart.

Elsewhere, along with Saving Christmas and billion-dollar box office hit Transformers 4, there are multiple mentions for A Million Ways To Die In The West, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Expendables 3. Perennial multiple nominee Adam Sandler only bagged one nod this year. Winners will be announced on the eve of the Oscars in February. Here’s the full list:
