Jamie Foxx, Ludacris Among 39th Annual Razzie Awards Nominees

“Winners” will be announced Feb. 23, the day before the Academy Awards

Razzie AwardThe Golden Raspberry Award Foundation announced its nominees for the 39th Annual Razzie Awards.

Leading the critically reviled charge this year, with six nominations each, are the John Travolta crime drama “Gotti,” Will Ferrell/John C. Reilly team-up “Holmes & Watson,” Dinesh D’Souza’s conservative-leaning “Death of a Nation” and the Melissa McCarthy comedy “The Happytime Murders.”

“Winners” will be announced Feb. 23, the day before the Academy Awards hands out its honors for cinema’s finest.

Jamie Foxx was nominated for worst supporting actor for his performance in “Robin Hood,” as well as Ludacris for his voice role in “Show Dogs” and Justice Smith for “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.” Jaz Sinclair was nominated for worst supporting actress for her role in Sylvain White’s horror film, “Slender Man.”

The Razzies were created in 1980 as the comical counterpoint to Tinsel Town’s annual glut of self congratulatory awards by John Wilson, author of The Official Razzie Movie Guide and Everything I Know I Learned At The Movies.
