"Fifty Shades of Grey" and "Pixels" were among the nominations this week for the Golden Raspberry Awards, nicknamed the Razzies, a tongue-in-cheek set of awards for the worst films from 2015. Despite being panned by critics, many of the nominations were box office successes, but critical opinion still matters to a film's success, say industry experts.
Universal's "Fifty Shades of Grey" has grossed more than $570 million worldwide according to Box Office Mojo, despite receiving positive reviews from just 25 percent of critics on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. Meanwhile Sony's "Pixels" has made more than $244 million worldwide with only 17 percent positive critical opinion. Both have been nominated for Worst Picture and Worst Screenplay by the Razzies.
