Tiny Times nominated for worst Chinese film

( ) Updated: 2015-03-10 12:19:15

Winning the box office and losing moviegoers' hearts seemed to be a common theme among the 10 films nominated for the "most disappointing film" award of the year, as all nominees grossed over 100 million yuan ($159,700) in 2014. In particular, The Monkey King raked in more than one billion yuan.

China's box office surged ahead by 36% to hit $4.82 billion (29.6 billion yuan) in 2014. China is now world's second largest film market, second only to the United States.

The founder of the awards, Cheng Qingsong, said the idea behind them is to encourage more feedback from movie fans.

All the nominees, which also include five directors, five actors and five actresses, were selected through an online voting process. The public will then vote to choose the country's worst films. The winners will be announced at a ceremony in Beijing on March 16.

Unlike the "Razzies", no winners of the Golden Broom Awards have claimed the award, a broom-shaped trophy, in person in the six years of the ceremony.

"We truly hope some high-profile winners can come and claim their awards," said Cheng. "If they can bow their heads and listen more to people’s opinions, maybe they can become the best the next year."
