Mother!, Fifty Shades Darker Among 2018 Razzie Nominations

Mother!

Mother! — a movie about climate change and the environment, also the Bible, and maybe even about fracking, Moana, and dating Darren Aronofsky — looked like a serious Oscar contender for approximately seven perfect seconds this summer. Now the Aronofsky epic is in the running for a less prestigious award: the Razzies. Transformers: The Last Knight and (the unfairly maligned) Fifty Shades Darker led the Razzie nominations, but Mother! had a strong showing, scoring noms for Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, and Scarf King™ Aronofsky. The Razzies will be handed out on March 3, the day before the Oscars.

There are a few other hidden gems among this year’s Razzie crop: Tom Cruise (The Mummy) and Zac Efron (Baywatch) are jockeying for Worst Actor. (Also, Cruise once taught Efron how to ride a motorcycle, so there’s that.) Javier Bardem and Mark Wahlberg both have the distinct honor of repping a pair of movies in their acting categories. And despite her outstanding work in Unforgettable, Katherine Heigl is among the Worst Actress nominees, which also include Dakota Johnson, JLaw, Emma Watson, and … Tyler Perry.
