NEW YORK (REUTERS) - The Adam Sandler comedy Grown Ups 2 dominated the Razzie Awards on Wednesday with eight nominations, including worst picture and actor in the annual mock awards handed out for cinematic ignobility.

Will Smith's After Earth, a futuristic post-apocalyptic tale of a father and his son, was not far behind with six nods for the anti-Oscars that were created as an antidote to Hollywood's annual awards season.

The Razzie winners will be announced on Mar 1, the eve of the Academy Awards, Hollywood's biggest awards fest.

Tyler Perry's comedy A Madea Christmas also earned six nominations for the Golden Raspberry statuette, along with Movie 43, a series of interconnected short films about a washed-up producer.
