Selena Gomez Up For Razzie Award: Worst Actress For ‘Getaway’

Selena's turn as a gun-toting, car-almost-jacking thrill-seeker on the big screen could earn her a major nomination! "I stood up and cheered!" raved absolutely no one who saw Selena Gomez and Ethan Hawke's 2013 film Getaway, so it's no surprise the action-thriller is on the short list for three Razzie Award nominations, which will be presented to the year's less-than-stellar cinematic works. But hey, a potential nomination is a potential nomination -- even if the category is "Worst Actress" -- so we'd like to take this time to congratulate our girl Selena on her prestigious recognition.

Selena Gomez’s Razzie Nomination: Why We’re Proud Of Her

Films are designed to move us, one way or another, and Getaway did just that. Selena’s film stirred enough emotion within the hearts and minds of the Razzies’ nominating committee that it chose to bestow this potential nomination upon her, and for that, we salute her.

As is tradition, the Razzie winners will be announced March 1, 2014 — the night before the Academy Awards — during a slightly-less-lavish ceremony in Hollywood.
