LOS ANGELES – “Grown Ups 2” is making the most noise at this year’s Golden Raspberry Awards.
The silly comedy sequel about four childhood friends starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock and David Spade led the Razzie lineup Tuesday with eight nominations, including worst picture, sequel, ensemble, screenplay, lead actor for Sandler, supporting actor for Taylor Lautner, supporting actress for Salma Hayek and director for Dennis Dugan.
This year’s other worst-picture nominees are “The Lone Ranger” starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, Tyler Perry’s “A Madea Christmas,” “After Earth” starring Will and Jaden Smith and “Movie 43” featuring the likes of Kate Winslet, Richard Gere, Hugh Jackman and Halle Berry.
Winners for the 34th annual Razzies will be announced March 1. While far less star-studded than other award shows, past winners like Berry and Sandra Bullock have sometimes shown up in person to claim their gold spray-painted prizes.
