It’s that time of the year where actors and movie are being awarded for stand out performances. For some, the definition of “stand out” may not be in a positive light. While the Oscars are awarding the top performances, the Golden Raspberry Awards, or Razzies, cover the other end of the spectrum. With the 2019 Razzie Awards nominations officially out, let’s look at those with performances that were just outstandingly awful.
The 39th Annual Golden Raspberry Award Nominees
Every year since 1980, the Golden Raspberry Awards have been given out to the worst in film. With Worst Picture, Actor, Actress, Director, and Screenplay being common every year, the Razzies also like to have special categories that further make fun of the films of the year. Below, is the complete list of nominations for the Razzies.

Last Word on the Razzie Award Nominations
With all the negativity that surrounded the film, I expect to Gotti to take home the most Razzies this year. As always, it will be fun to see who the “winners” are and if they are there to accept the award.
Like every year, the 39th Golden Raspberry Awards will take place on Saturday, February 23, 2019, one day before the Oscars. It will begin at 2 p.m. CT.
