Transformers: Age of Extinction Receives 7 Razzie Nominations

To no surprise, Transformers: Age of Extinction received the most Razzie Nominations today with seven. The Razzie Awards acts as an anti-Oscar that "awards" the worst major theatrical releases of the year. For the franchise the first Transformers film avoided nominations but Revenge of the Fallen received 7 noms and "won" 3 while Dark of the Moon received 8 noms but "won" none.

The "winners" will be announced the day before the Oscars on Saturday, February 21. I wonder if Michael Bay will provide another Razzie "Math Equation" like he did with DOTM. A defense that came down to "lots of money was made so there." Redemption can come tomorrow as the Oscar Nomination ceremony will be held in the morning. Age of Extinction has a chance to get nominations in the technical categories including for sound, editing and visual effects. Below are the categories that Age of Extinction was nominated in.

  1. I am going to pretend I'm surprised

  2. me too because transformers is the most advanced in terms of VFX e.t.c . Something is going so wrong with this duo michael Bay and Ehren Krueger maybe 2 others to dominate oscars except Box Office of course every time ;)

  3. Until now Transformers dominated box office and the people with bad critisism . The future transformers films that will be all excellent what we are going to expect ? to go again top five even top 3 ? I am sick about critics and bad comments they want to shoot out Bay so be it but Ehren too . We will see the next director then ;)

  4. congratulations , well deserved
