2016 Razzies Wins a Tie for Fantastic Four and Fifty Shades of Grey as Worst Pictures of the Year

Just as the Academy Awards is an event that celebrates the Best in Cinema for the year, many of you may already know that there's also an annual event that celebrates the worst in cinema, and that is the annual Golden Raspberry Awards (or simply called "The Razzies"). This year, the event was held February 27, 2016 which is a day before the Oscar night. The Worst Picture Award gets a tie, with "Fifty Shades of Grey" and "Fantastic Four" getting the title. "Fifty Shades of Grey" has the most nominations and the most won, winning the Worst Picture, Worst Actor (for Jamie Dornan) and Worst Actress (for Dakota Johnson). Eddie Redmayne won the Worst Supporting Award for "Jupiter Ascending" and Kaley Cuoco as Worst Supporting Actress for "Alvin & the Chipmunks: The Road Chip". [hit the jump to continue]

It is not only the worst in cinema that the Razzies award; they also have The Razzie Redeemer Award which is presented to a past Razzie Award nominee or winner who had crossed into more appreciated works in film.
