The 36th Razzie Award Winners

50 Shades Poster

Fifty Shades of Grey, the “romantic”phenomenon, led the pack with 5 Golden Raspberries.

On the eve of the Academy Awards, the awards for the 36th annual Golden Raspberry took place, awarding what was considered as the worst in cinema for 2015. Fifty Shades of Grey the adaption of the E.L. James Twilight fan fiction novel, was nominated for a total of 6 Golden Raspberries and ended up winning 5 awards.

Fox’s ill-fated Fantastic Four reboot won the second most Razzie awards, earning 3 out of 5 categories it was nominated for.

Amazingly enough, the judging panel couldn’t decide between Fantastic Four and Fifty Shades of Grey, so both pictures won the award for worst picture of the year.
