The Razzies 2018: ‘Transformers’, ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ And 'The Mummy’ Lead Nominations

They're the awards nobody wants to win.

With the 2018 awards season well underway, there’s one shortlist no self-respecting actor wants to end up on… yep this year’s Razzie nominations have been announced.

The annual Golden Raspberry Awards honour the very worst Hollywood had to offer in the previous 12 months, well, according to the organisers at least.

Worst actor nominee Mark Walhberg in Worst Picture nominee 'Transformers: The Last Knight'.

‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ leads the way with nine nominations including Worst Actor, for Mark Wahlberg, Worst Director, for Michael Bay, and Worst Picture, despite taking $605.4m at the box office and ending up the third biggest movie of last year.

It’s not the first time a film from the ‘Transformers’ franchise has been nominated, receiving a worst picture nomination for every instalment except the first.

‘Fifty Shades Darker’ ($381.1m at the box office) isn’t far behind with eight nominations, including Worst Actor and Actress for its leads, Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson.

Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are both nominated for Razzies for 'Fifty Shades Darker'.

‘The Mummy’ ($409.2m at the box office) has seven nominations, including one for Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel.

All three principal actors of the revival of the 1930s monster pic also get a nod (or should that be shake of the head?), Tom Cruise for Worst Actor, and Russell Crowe and Sofia Boutella for Worst Supporting Actor and Actress.

The organisers mocked Hollywood’s reliance on franchises last year, noting that 87 of the top-earning 100 films of 2017 were “sequels, remakes or rip-offs”.

This year’s ceremony will take place on Saturday 3 March, a day before the Oscars, where winners will receive the “tackiest Tinsel Town trophies”.
