Date: 22nd January 2019
John Travolta, Will Ferrell and Melissa McCarthy are just a few of the famous people nominated for the 2019 Razzie Awards.
John Travolta's "Gotti" and Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly's "Holmes & Watson" both received the "honor" of being nominated for Worst Picture of 2018.
Melissa McCarthy might be nominated for an Oscar on Tuesday morning, but on Monday morning, she scored a nomination for Worst Actress for both "The Happytime Murders" and "Life of the Party", and the former also landed among the five Worst Picture nominees. The box office bomb "Robin Hood" and Helen Mirren's "Winchester" rounded out the nominees.
Leading the pack when it comes to the 2019 Razzie nominations is the mobster biopic Gotti, starring Travolta as the titular crime boss. Gotti famously earned a rare 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and sank like a stone at the box office.
Gotti earned nominations for Worst Picture, Worst Actor (Travolta), Worst Supporting Actress (Kelly Preston), Worst Screen Combo (Travolta and Preston), Worst Director, and Worst Screenplay. Interestingly, despite the controversy surrounding Depp's casting in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the Oscar-nominee is actually being nominated for his voice work in the animated movie Sherlock Gnomes.
