Fifty Shades of Grey ties up five Razzies


Fifty Shades of Grey may have been largely overlooked in the Oscar nominations, but it was a big winner at this year’s Razzies.

The awkward adaptation of author EL James’s erotic novel nabbed five prizes at the Golden Raspberry awards, including a share of the year’s worst film award with the superhero flop Fantastic Four.

Jamie Dornan picked up the worst actor award and his co-star Dakota Johnson took worst actress. The pair also pinned down the worst screen combo award. Fifty Shades also won worst screenplay.

Despite failing to impress the critics, Sam Taylor-Johnson’s film, which cost $40m to make, has taken more than $570m at the box office globally. It was Universal’s highest-grossing R–rated film globally, and also the UK’s highest-grossing 18-rated movie.
