Robert DeNiro is (trying to be) THE COMEDIAN

Vheid
Seeing that this movie already has a 26% on Rotten Tomatoes (from its film festival premiere) and seeing that DeNiro will probably get another Razzie nomination for The War With Grandpa next year, i thought there was enough reason to start this dicussion-page. Eventhough i can only see DeNiro maybe getting a nomination for it (and then only combined with that Grandpa War-movie)...

And the consensus reads: "It boasts an incredibly talented cast, but they're put to poor use in an aimless rom-com whose handful of memorable moments never add up to a compelling story."

Danny DeVito is in this movie. If he gets nominated for Supporting this year, it will fulfill an official tradition that Mr. DeVito gets nominated in that category once every decade.
Akiva Goldsman: The writer partially responsible for this year's triple threat of The Dark Tower, Rings, and, worst of all, Transformers: The Last Knight. I'll be shocked if all three screenplays do not make the ballots.

The decade is not over yet...

The reason why i dont see it getting more nominations is because its a small/limited release with bad but not awful reviews released very early in the year... We clearly have a lot more worse high profile shit still to come this year...
