Cats, Rambo and Tyler Perry lead the Razzie nominations 5

We’ve just seen the winners of the Oscars, the collection of the best of the best for the year. It was a winners list which saw a foreign language film win Best Picture for the first time and featured a deserving group of professionals with hardly any award winner that you could complain about.   

However, those aren’t the only movies that people end up talking about, as along with all these great films that came out last year are a collection of turkeys that we are all trying to forget even existed. And doing their best to ensure these horrible films are remembered for prosperity we have the Razzie awards. The awards show that remembers the worst films of the year has long since descended into a bit of a farce and lacks any form of credibility but remains fun as it can often prove to be quite scathing in the way it recognised some lesser moments of the year’s big films. This year Tyler Perry, John Travolta, Sylvester Stallone and the entirety of Cats are coming in for a bit of ridicule:

Cats, Rambo and Tyler Perry lead the Razzie nominations 8

Unsurprisingly, the disaster that was Cats came out with the most nominations of the year being nominated in practically every category except for Worst Actor and Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel. Though it could easily have found itself in those categories too. A Madea Family Funeral also received many nominations, mostly thanks to Tyler Perry with Rambo: Last Blood also nominated throughout. For Perry and Stallone though, it’s just a continuation of a trend which has seen them nominated far too many times.

There are probably worse movies than these, but none that were as high profile. So, while the rest of the world is remembering the best films of the year why not discuss the most disappointing instead. What as your worst movie of 2019?
