Glamour! Elegance! The sweet smell of self-congratulation! None will be present at the 34th annual Razzie Awards, a proudly low-budget event dedicated to dishonoring the previous year’s worst movies. (Actually, make that “no-budget”; have you seen the Razzies’ website? It looks like a Geocities page from 1996.)
There are several strong contenders in this year’s Razzies race, from father-and-son team Will and Jaden Smith to perennial “winner” Adam Sandler and Golden Raspberry Award Foundation favorite Sylvester Stallone, who snagged a record-breaking 31st nomination for his work in three 2013 films. (Note: It is not hard to become a member of the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation. In fact, all you need is $40.)
Which of them will walk away with a $4.79 gold-spray-painted trophy come Saturday? The true answer is probably none; Razzie winners hardly ever show up to collect their prizes. (There are, of course, exceptions to every rule.) Even so, these awards are getting handed out — and here are EW’s official picks for which movies deserve each one, as well as which movies will probably end up on top. As it were.
Grown Ups 2
The Lone Ranger
A Madea Christmas

From Beyoncé’s scorching opener to a Queen Latifah-led mass marriage ceremony to Taylor Swift and Yoko Ono’s gloriously awkward dancing, Sunday night’s Grammy Awards telecast was stuffed with memorable moments. Unfortunately, to see them all, you had to sit through a ceremony that just kept going and going and going, even long after it reached its scheduled end time of 11:30 p.m. ET. Wouldn’t it be nice to get a quick distillation of the night’s biggest bits — without all that unnecessary in-between stuff?
Your wish is our command!
Several sleepy stars are already reacting to today’s big news — their Golden Globe nominations. See statements from celebs including Matthew McConaughey, Kerry Washington, and Amy Adams below; we’ll update this post as more pour in.
Matthew McConaughey (Best Actor, Drama, for Dallas Buyers Club): “I’m excited and honored that the HFPA has recognized my performance in Dallas Buyers Club. Ron Woodroof was a revolutionary for the human spirit, and I was blessed to tell his story. I’m looking forward to spending the evening at the Golden Globes on January 12th.”
Kerry Washington (Best Actress in a TV series, Drama, for Scandal): “I’m enormously grateful to the Hollywood Foreign Press for this honor. It’s humbling to be nominated alongside such talented and hard-working women whose work inspires me.”
Amy Adams (Best Actress, Comedy or Musical, for American Hustle): “I am so honored that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has recognized my work alongside such brilliant actresses. Also a huge congrats to the amazing writers, directors, and casts of American Hustle and Her for their nominations. Truly a day for gratitude.”
Russell Brand might have received his final prize at the British GQ Men of the Year Awards.
The comedian got into hot water with the magazine by making a Nazi joke about the show’s sponsor, Hugo Boss, during the event earlier this month. Now, he’s written a column for the U.K.’s Guardian newspaper, defending his comments and calling out the absurdity of awards shows in general.
Brand, who was on hand to receive the night’s Oracle award and was reportedly banned from the afterparty following his acceptance, explains what led up to him making the Boss joke.
