Burlesque has been shortlisted for Razzie nominations in 5 categories – including worst actress for Christina Aguilera and worst supporting actress for Cher.
Often described as the anti-Oscars, the Golden Raspberry Awards – better known as Razzies – pay tribute to the year’s worst movies.
And Burlesque has been singled out as a clear frontrunner, despite respectable box office returns and a Golden Globe nomination for best film.
Xtina’s cinematic debut has been shortlisted for the following categories:
Worst Supporting Actor for Cam Gigandet
Worst Supporting Actress for Kristen Bell and Cher
Worst Actress for Christina Aguilera
Interestingly Burlesque hasn’t been shortlisted for worst film – perhaps a nod to the fact that people appear to genuinely enjoy the movie despite its shortcomings.
The following films were not so lucky:
The Bounty Hunter
Clash of the Titans
The Last Airbender
Sex and the City 2
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
The actual Razzie nominations are announced on January 24, while Burlesque is released in Australia on January 13.
