If I had to pick one from each of the 5 divisions of the list, I'd say:

Underworld: Awakening and Total Recall [remake] for Kate Beckinsale 

One For the Money for Katherine Heigl 

Atlas Shrugged Part II for Samantha Mathis 

House at the End of the Street for Jennifer Lawrence 

Parental Guidance for Bette Midler 
 
However, I'd be reluctant to RAZZ the last two -- Jennifer Lawrence just got good with Winter's Bone and The Hunger Games. House at the End of the Street was shot in 2010 and shelved for 2 years, and that's the only reason that she'd ever made a bad performance back to back with either Winter's Bone or The Hunger Games. If House at the End of the Street and Step Up Revolution (the least of 4 evils, so why didn't Step Up get a RAZZIE thread in 2006?) are the two most likely newcomers to the history of RAZZIE finalists, then we should probably stick to veterans this year.
 
And Parental Guidance and The Guilt Trip I'm on the fence about until I know for sure how bad they are.
 
I'm hoping Wanderlust doesn't get RAZZed, because it had a 60-something RT rating. 
 
But I just thought I'd ask one more time: Back on May 4, when A Little Bit of Heaven got released, why didn't it get an official thread or even a member-started forum if The Larch really thinks it's a front-runner for the finals?

Jennifer Lopez definitely belongs on this list. The story-lines in WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EEXPECTING were running parallel, so I wouldn't consider her supporting. Here's a http://www.rottentomatoes.com/celebrity/jennifer_lopez/ - LINK ...

Her fake "acting," using a high pitched/whiny voice, was super unpleasant to watch!

To mbh: Honestly, I think we should save What to Expect When You're Expecting for Worst Ensemble Cast.
 
Before the Worst Supporting Actress topic even begins, I'd just like to say "Forget about nominating Lincoln (91% approval rating, 87% pro critic review average)."
 
On topic: Is there any chance that either Madea's Witness Protection for Tyler Perry as Madea, One For the Money for Katherine Heigl can beat Kristen Stewart? I doubt Gone for Amanda Seyfried or Resident Evil: Retribution for Milla Jovovich stand any chance against Stewart, sadly. But PLEASE, whatever you do, don't include Snow White and the Huntsman!

Snow White is voted rotten, so what's your problem? Stewart's acting sucked and made the movie even worse. I thought I saw some development in the first Breaking Dawn, but if she sucks again in Breaking Dawn 2, the nomination for both will be well deserved.

I'd nominate the What to Expect cast for Worst Esemble anyway. Lopez is just exceptionally bad, way worse than Banks. I'd like to see that pointed out.

To nominate Lawrence doesn't make sense. She's on a good way.

Okay, why is Jennifer Aniston still on the radar? Wanderlust is actually one of her better films, and there are much worse performances than that, and DO NOT bring up that "but it bombed at the box-office" crap. It's a Wonderful Life bombed at the box office. That doesn't mean it sucked, FOR PETE'S SAKE!!!

Sorry about that. Anyways, for those listed, I would have to say: 

Tyler Perry, Kristen Stewart (FOR BOTH Snow White and Twilight), Katherine Heigl, Jennifer Lawrence and either Diane Keaton or Amanada Seyfried for the last spot.

The winner will be not so easy to predict. I would say Katherine Heigl, and I'm sticking to it -- but I would not be surprised if Kristen won, especially considering the scandal she was involved in.

Same problem that a frequent poster here (can't remember if it's you) had with nominating The Three Stooges: above 35%, let alone above 45%, approval rating at Rotten Tomatoes.
Hopefully not very many acting nominations go to good or average films beyond this then. Just how few totally bad, widely-panned-by-critics films do you want as finalists?
I, on the other hand, want as wide a selection of bad films to be nominated as possible, but as long as the Worst Actress nomination isn't a joint nod between multiple actresses (I'm looking at you, oiram!), J-Lo and the Ensemble cast will suffice... as long as it's not at the cost of One For the Money dodging any nominations!
As I said, we don't have a good selection of newcomer actresses to choose from. I think two of them should be from the "almost beens."

That wasn't me about the Stooges movie, but we're getting there, since I want Vergara up for Worst Supporting Actress.
I totally see your point in punishing as many movies as possible. But this is my chance to give a f**k You to the actors I don't want to watch because their acting sucks. I don't care how mediocre received a movie is.

My contenders:
-B. Lively in SAVAGES.
-K. Heigl in OFTM.
-K. Hudson in ALBOH (maybe).
-K. Stewart in SWATH (of course that I'll wait to see BREAKING DAWN PART 2).
-Taylor Schilling in THE LUCKY ONE.

My front-runners:
-A. Seyfried in GONE.
-M. Jovovich in RE5.

I'm curious about this. Not because the movie got only mixed reviews, but because I don't remember critics nor members of this forum saying bad (or good) things about her performance.

I know its reviews are below average, but it's not like that doesn't mean "bad". Also, your sentence sounds like it's good. In fact, you sound like you want to defend it even more than LINCOLN.

Stewart had a lot of non-twihards defenders of her acting in the TWILIGHT saga (me included), while she had no defenders of her acting in SWATH. So of course she has to be considered for both movies.

There have been cases of people being nominated for shallow reasons. If this one does happen, it won't be the dumbest. Think about it. She got involved with the director, which caused a conflict of interests, and that's probably why he directed her badly.

To HeadRAZZ: If nothing else beyond what I've already said regarding 2012's worst actresses, just take Wanderlust off the table!
 
To mbh and Vits: I take it you care mostly-to-solely about the people in the roles, critics be damned?
 
To oiram: Am I to understand that you think ANYTHING, gimmick or otherwise, that the nomination finals have done in the past is totally infallible as long as HeadRAZZ doesn't reject doing it again?
 
To everyone involved with the RAZZIES: I know half of our anticipated-for-the-wrong-reasons films got surprising good reviews this year, but if every category had 3 nominations for critically panned films, and 2 for good or average films, I'd conclude that this wasn't about the worst films the cinema industry has to offer anymore. Of course, provided all the 2013 RAZZIE bait doesn't get exonerated like what happened this past year, I'll walk back this claim.

EDIT: You know what, there was one award I didn't like in the past: from 1998, Worst Movie Trends of the Year. Reason was that it wasn't nominating movies in particular, just really boring words. Seriousy, who would receive that award if anyone showed up?

In which universe have Lopez or Stewart been praised for their respective roles? As for the case of Tatum in Magic Mike, there was one critic praising his acting, and I have no idea where that guy had his eyes. Tatum's acting sucks, and yes, I don't take that critic seriously, and I don't care about the movie, since it's about the worst actor and my opinion.

This is crazy speculation, but you mean if Sanders sensed easy prey and was going for a tight butt, he might have courted her? Could be. Or blinded by something that we don't see. Still, that is a weird reason. I'd rather think she's pretty much "un-directable". After all, how many times can a director repeat "more emotion. more emotion! more emotion please"....

You would be right if that was the case, but it isn't. Despite our feedback in these forum polls, only few of the movies you defend (SWATH, JOHN CARTER, etc.) have a real shot at getting nominated.

It's kind of sleeping with your teacher and then getting good grades despite not studying. But it's just speculation, you don't have to listen to me. And even if that was the case, I'm not saying Sanders should get all the blame; she still deserves it.

To SchumacherH8ter: I think Kate Beckinsale should be nominated for Total Recall [remake] and Underworld: Awakening instead of Contraband and Awakening. But upon re-reading your post, seeing the film is a strict pre-requisite for you.
 
To mbh: You don't care AT ALL about the rest of the film just as long as one performance brings it all down? But that's the problem!!! That single-issue voting is part of the reason that Michael Bay's The Island, Elektra, A Sound of Thunder, plus a (beep)ton of other films dodged the RAZZIES for 2005 alone. Instead, Kicking and Screaming for Will Ferrell and War of the Worlds [remake] for Tom Cruise robbed them all! I'm not even talking about the other 11 of the past 12 years, but there've been plenty of RAZZIE contenders that have dodged RAZZIE nominations just so good films could get nominated for that one bad performance under that blasted "Like the movie, hate the act" parameter!
 
To Vits: When I mentioned caring about the people instead of the movies, I was talking about the "Like the movie, hate the act" parameter. Take Mamma Mia! for example. Pierce Brosnan's nomination for those one or two lines of ear-grinding singing (example of "hate the act") led to a film that more than half of the viewers liked ("Like the movie") stealing a nomination from Bangkok Dangerous, Babylon AD, Superhero Movie, and dozens of other films in the 2008 RAZZIES.
 
I think the "like the movie, hate the act" parameter waters down everything, but that must be my tendency to judge individual films as a whole, on a case-by-case basis, whereas everyone else seems to care more about the people playing the roles and stuff.

Again, I understand what you're saying. I personally was completely happy with the results last year. You want as many awards as possible spread out, and I'm fine with that as well. But I am not going to betray my beliefs -- I'm going by whose acting was so bad that I never ever want to see this person acting again. Kristen Stewart is one of the most boring actresses ever to have disgraced the silver screen. If her acting is actually entertaining in Breaking Dawn 2, her nomination for that is off my list. In Snow White she sucked, and I will not nominate another actress, whose performance I did not loathe as much, instead, only because  some other movie overall had worse reviews. If in the end my vote gets buried, so be it. In this category it IS about the acting, and not about the movie!

GTA, let me put this way: At the past Oscars, a bunch of average to bad movies were nominated, but people only complained about EXTREMELY LOUD because it got a Best Picture nomination. They didn't even complain about Max Von Sydow's nomination because he didn't fully have to do with the R.T. and Metacritic scores.

So, according to your logic, bad movies do deserve a nomination as long as it's a technical category? And the same with good movies in the Razzies (which don't have technical categories)? If that's so, the following didn't deserve their Oscar nominations and/or wins:
-Meryl Streep, THE IRON LADY.
-Glenn Close and Janet McTeerALBERT NOBBS.
-Javier BardemBIUTIFUL.
-Sandra Bullock, THE BLIND SIDE.
-Stanley Tucci, THE LOVELY BONES.
-Penélope Cruz, NINE.
-Kate Winslet, THE READER.
-Angelina Jolie, CHANGELING.
-Cate BlanchettELIZABETH: THE GOLDEN AGE.
-Adriana Barraza and Rinko Kikuchi, BABEL.
-Judi Dench, MRS. HENDERSON PRESENTS.
-Charlize Theron and Frances McDormand, NORTH COUNTRY.
-Clive Owen and Natalie Portman, CLOSER.
-Ken Watanabe, THE LAST SAMURAI.
-Diane Lane, UNFAITHFUL.
Do you see the problem? This people deserve recognition for their own individual work. The same applies to the Razzies. I don't think anyone regrets that Best Picture nominee THE GODFATHER PART III won 2 acting Razzies.

Kate Beckinsale in "Contraband", "Total Recall", and "Underworld: Awakening" 

Miley Cyrus in "LOL" and "So Undercover" 

Viola Davis in "Won't Back Down" 

Ashley Greene in "The Apparition" 

Katherine Heigl in "One for the Money" 

Kate Hudson in "A Little Bit of Heaven" 

Milla Jovovich in "Resident Evil: Retribution" 

Queen Latifah in "Joyful Noise" 

Rachael McAdams in "The Vow" 

Dolly Parton in "Joyful Noise" 

Taylor Schilling in "The Lucky One" 

Kyra Sedgwick in "The Possession" 

Amanda Seyfried in "Gone"  

Kristen Stewart in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2" 

Reese Witherspoon in "This Means War"

For the record: 1) Maggie Gyllenhaal was far WORSE than Viola Davis in Won't Back Down and deserves to be on the ballot, 2) Dolly Parton's (awful) role in Joyful Noise was Supporting, and 3) ENOUGH with nominating multiple people for ONE spot (esp. since J. Lo was light years worse that the rest of the Expecting cast); that's become as tiresome as nominating men who dress in drag in the Worst Actress category Thumbs Down...

FYC: WORST Acting Performances of 2014 include: Johnny Depp (X2), Kevin Costner (X3), Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Seth MacFartlane, Sandler (X3), Rob Reiner, Dan Aykroyd (X2), and YES Diane Keaton!

I'm not that against performances in drag being considered the opposite gender, mainly because I prefer judging performances without separating by gender. But it's nothing compared to conjoined nominations, which go against my previous point about individual performances. I just hope there won't any in the upcoming ballots.

I don't think average or bad films should be nominated for the OSCARs, period. Even the technical categories I'm wary of because even in this post-Y2K world, there's rarely a shortage of good films that could round out the categories without 5 or 6 films sweeping half of them. Unlike the RAZZIES, the OSCARs have no less than 4 other counterparts to honor what the OSCARs missed.

To my memory, films highlighted in orange have at least decent (minimum 12 or 13 out of 20) approval rating. I was fine with those.

By the way, which films that had average or good reviews besides Breaking Dawn Part 2 (unless we can manage to have it taken off the table) really stand much of a chance at being finalists for any awards? Put asterisks to the ones that stand a good chance at Worst Picture.

To Antilsu: Well, oiram said he simply didn't object to collective Worst Actor/Actress nominations. But if that post is any indication, you two actually LIKE them at the expense of Worst Ensemble Cast!

REAL STEEL changes from 59 (rotten) to 60 (fresh) almost daily -- So should its Best Effects nomination be annulled during the days it scores 59? And TRANSFORMERS 3 got 3 Oscar nominations, while DRIVE got 1. Does that mean it's better? Numbers aren't that important.

As for the '05 nominations (which a lot of people complain about), I think you're wrong.
You say that if Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, Hayden Christensen and Will Ferrell hadn't been nominated it would've given more space to movies like THE ISLAND and A SOUND OF THUNDER. But: 

-Ferrell would've still been nominated for BEWITCHED (the main reason for his nomination). 

-Ewan McGregor was never even in consideration. 

-Edward Burns made it to the Nominating Ballot, but I don't remember him being the 6th most voted or anything. 

-The other Worst Supp. Actress nod would've most likely gone to Traylor Howard, and SON OF THE MASK was already nominated.

-I was actually thankful that the Razzies finally acknowledged the STAR WARS prequels' good reception by not putting it up for Worst Picture. But Christensen still deserved to win!

Here's my list of suggestions for Worst Actress (so far): 

1) Katherine Heigl, One For the Money. She was just annoying from start to finish. It's bad enough the movie sucks. 

2) Kristen Stewart, Snow White and the Huntsman and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn- Part II. Stewart continues with her expressionless "acting."

3) Brooklyn Decker, What to Expect When You're Expecting. Wooden acting for most of the movie. 

4) Jennifer Lopez, What to Expect When You're Expecting. Some musicians shouldn't act...Jennifer Lopez is one of them. 

5) Kathryn McCormick, Step Up: Revolution. Putting so much focus on dancing is not an excuse for dull acting. After all, in a movie an actor is supposed to act

Directed by Michael Bay and M. Night Shyamalan comes...a movie guaranteed to win Razzies!

Decker for WHAT TO EXPECT and not for BATTLESHIP? Or do you think her acting was so bad in both movies that she deserves double recognition as Worst Leading and Supp. Actress?

Head Razz, if I had to pick my five nominees right now they would be: 

1) Samantha Mathis for ATLAS SHAGGED PART 2 because she sucked even worse than... 

2) Taylor Schilling, who should have been nominated for ATLAS SHAGGED PART 1, but who was equally inept in THE LUCKY ONE 

3) Katherine Heigl who really deserves the Tacky Trophy for ONE FOR THE MONEY 

4) Kate Beckinsdale for TOTAL WEE WEE CALL, and... 

5) Maggie Gyllenhaal for WON'T BACK DOWN, a bald face propaganda piece that slams the school system where I grew up. This one especially boils my blood: An anti-union film made by union members!  

Frankly, if you haven't seen ATLAS SHAGGED, Part 2, do try to catch it and see just how AWFUL Mathis is -- she should win in an Electoral College landslide! 

PS--HEAD RAZZ, PLEASE CONSIDER PUTTING 2016: OBAMA'S AMERICA ON THE NOMINATING BALLOT FOR WORST PICTURE!
