‘The Interview,’ ‘Sex Tape,’ Make Razzies Shortlist

As the film business gears up to honor the best films of the year at the Academy Awards, the worst are getting recognized, too.

The shortlist for the Razzies, which names the worst films of the year, has been obtained by awards site Gold Derby, listing some of the biggest grossers of the year, like “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” and others that didn’t do so well. The shortlist isn’t a concrete list of the nominations — rather, it’s a preview of the contenders for the dubious honor.

Seth McFarlene’s “A Million Ways to Die” looks like it could be the frontrunner for the awards, popping up eight times. “Sex Tape,” which garnered mostly negative reviews, is listed six times. Seth Rogen and James Franco are both on the list for worst actor for “The Interview,” as well as worst onscreen duo.

Others who pop up several times include Kirk Cameron’s “Saving Christmas,” Darren Aronofsky’s biblical epic “Noah” and Nicolas Cage starrer “Left Behind.”

Voting for the awards end Jan. 10, and nominations will be announced Jan. 14. See the full list in the style it was obtained (which includes some commentary and jokes on movie title names) below.
