List Rules Vote up the 2016 Razzie nominees who you think actually did a fine job and shouldn't have been nominated

Okay, these 2016 Razzie nominees were actually pretty bad, but certainly not the absolute worst of the year! Sure these cheesy, gimmicky, ill-advised films and acting performances were notably bad but were they really bad enough to earn a Razzie Award nomination? Let's just say it's easy to be a critic.

We can all agree that Fifty Shades of Grey was a bomb, but it did have a few bright points - specifically in the acting from Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan. Yet both were among the many, many Razzie nominations for the film. Meanwhile, other really, really, really ridiculously bad films were overlooked. Jem and the Holograms, The Ridiculous 6 and Taken 3, we're talking about you.

Equally as puzzling is why Adam Sandler and Any Pair of Shoes from The Cobbler and Johnny Depp and His Glued-On Moustache from Mortdecai were nominated for Worst Screen Combo. Sandler and Depp may have earned the nominations but how can you blame innocent shoes and moustaches? That's almost as egregious as nominating M. Night Shyamalan for the Razzie Redeemer Award. While this is actually praise for finally making a great movie, in this case The Visit, one could argue that The Visit was overlooked as a Razzie nomination in itself.

Which movies, performances, directors or screen combos were the absolute worst this year and which of these 2016 Razzie Awards nominees deserve a bit more love? Share your thoughts below by voting up those who were not that bad and voting down those that were well deserving of the Razz.
