Every January, with the Oscars around the corner, when Hollywood’s power players are patting each other on the back for another year of hard-hitting entertainment, the Razzies swoop in to take the wind out of their sails by announcing nominations for the worst of Hollywood’s past year. The 34th annual Golden Raspberry Awards have announced the latest crop of “honorees,” and a few big music stars were targeted for their apparently subpar acting skills, including Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez and Chris Brown.
Gomez was nominated for Worst Actress for her role in Getaway and Gaga snagged a Worst Supporting Actress nod for her turn as La Chameleon in Machete Kills (Rihanna took home that prize for Battleship in 2013). Meanwhile, Breezy got a Worst Supporting Actor nom for his Battle Of The Year role. I have not seen any of these movies, so I can’t say whether these slights are justified. But they probably are.
Jaden Smith, Will Smith and Kim Kardashian were also singled out for their less-than-stellar film work last year.
