Jennifer Lopez among Razzies nominees for ‘Boy Next Door’

Jennifer Lopez’s return to the silver screen is getting some buzz this award season — but not of the kind she probably was hoping for.

The singer-turned-actress’ work on the thriller “Boy Next Door” has been nominated for the worst actress award for the 2016 Golden Raspberry Awards celebrating the worst in movies.

Lopez is joined by fellow nominees Katherine Heigl for her role “Home Sweet Hell”; Dakota Johnson for “Fifty Shades of Grey”; Mila Kunis for “Jupiter Ascending”; and Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow for “Mortdecai.”

"Fifty Shades of Grey" is all tied up with "Pixels," ''Jupiter Ascending" and "Paul Blart Mall Cop 2" for the most nominations

The films led the Razzies lineup Wednesday with six nods each, including worst picture and worst actor for Jamie Dornan in the sexy thriller "Fifty Shades of Grey," Kevin James in the comedy sequel "Paul Blart Mall Cop 2," Channing Tatum in the sci-fi film "Jupiter Ascending" and Adam Sandler in the video game mash-up "Pixels" and fantasy-comedy "The Cobbler."

The other worst picture nominee is the superhero flop "Fantastic Four," which is also up for worst remake, screen combo, director for Josh Trank and screenplay for Simon Kinberg, Jeremy Slater and Trank.

The announcement of the Razzies, which launched in 1980 as a spoof of Hollywood's awards season, comes ahead of Thursday's Oscar nominations.

The "winners" for the 36th annual Razzies will be announced Feb. 27, the night before the 88th annual Academy Awards. They will be selected by 900 voting members from 47 states in the United States and 21 foreign countries.

While far less star-studded than other award shows, past recipients such as Halle Berry and Sandra Bullock, have actually shown up in person to claim their gold spray-painted prizes.
