“Grown Ups 2″ is up for eight “Razzies”

The most entertaining annual “awards” are the Razzies – the nickname for the Golden Raspberry Awards which “honor” the worst films and performances of the past year.

As the nominations for this dubious accolade were announced Wednesday, it was Adam Sandler’s “Grown Ups 2” that led the pack.The film — dissed by virtually every critic on the globe — is up for eight Razzies, including Worst Picture, Worst Lead Actor (Sandler), Worst Screenplay and Worst Supporting Actress (Salma Hayek).

Three other stinkers — “After Earth,” “A Madea Christmas” and “Movie 43” each have six nominations.

First-time nominees include Johnny Depp (for “The Lone Ranger”), Naomi Watts (for BOTH “Diana” and “Movie 43”) and Selena Gomez (for “Getaway”).

Sylvester Stallone was really targeted by the Razzie voters — being nominated for Worst Actor for THREE films — “Bullet to the Head,” “Escape Plan” and “Grudge Match.”

The Razzies will be presented in Los Angeles on March 1 — the day before the Academy Awards.
