Two sequels, “Transformers: The Last Knight” and “Fifty Shades Darker,” lead the nominations for the 38th annual Razzie Awards with nine and eight bids respectively, followed by “The Mummy” with seven. These kudos, honoring the worst of moviemaking, will be handed out by the Golden Raspberry Foundation on March 3 (one day before the Oscars) in a virtual ceremony.
The Razzies front-runner for Worst Picture is “The Emoji Movie,” which would be the first animated film to “win” that award. We are predicting that Tom Cruise (“The Mummy”) and Jennifer Lawrence (“Mother!”) will be cited for their bad acting in starring roles while Russell Crowe and Kim Basinger will be similarly singled out for their ham-fisted performances in featured turns in “The Mummy” and “Fifty Shades Darker.”
See the full list of 2018 contenders below and then watch those rascals at the Razzies make merry with all these potential “winners” on their YouTube channel here.
