The Razzies — “Grown Ups 2” vs. “After Earth” vs. “Madea” Vs. “Lone Ranger”?

lone1Here are your Golden Raspberry (Razzie) nominations for the calendar year 2013.

As I have mentioned elsewhere, it was a banner year for not just good movies, but really bad ones as well.

I used to vote in this “contest,” but a couple of times it has seemed as if the crew in charge has been corrupted, c-opted or maybe just drunk as they consider the field of potential nominees. That year that Sandra Bullock showed up to accept, seeing as how she was about to win the Oscar for “Blind Side” and thus could be magnanimous (and show us she doesn’t take herself seriously) was kind of a shark jumping moment.

This year, the “34th Razzies?”  Pretty close to on the money. I doubt if Johnny Depp shows up to accept. Or Salma Hayek. Well, maybe Salma. Adam Sandler ought to be up for some sort of lifetime achievement honors. But maybe that’s just me
