‘The Emoji Movie’ poised to make Razzie Award history as the first animated Worst Picture, according to our predictions

Will “The Emoji Movie” make history at the Razzie Awards? Its creators probably hope not, but according to our predictions it’s the front-runner to win Worst Picture with leading odds of 8/15. That would make it the first animated film ever to win the top prize at these awards, which single out the poorest films and performances of the year. Are we right, or will it escape the Razzies relatively unscathed?

Our racetrack odds are based on the combined forecasts of more than 1,100 Gold Derby users who have entered their picks in our predictions center thus far. That includes Expert journalists we’ve polled from top media outlets, our Editors who cover awards year-round for Gold Derby, the Top 24 Users who got the highest scores predicting last year’s Razzie winners, and the All-Star Top 24 who got the highest scores when you combine the last two years’ Razzie predictions.

But not everyone agrees about which film is out front. In fact, our five Experts are split four ways. Thelma Adams (Gold Derby) and Joyce Eng (Gold Derby) agree with the consensus that “The Emoji Movie” will win, but Edward Douglas (The Tracking Board) is betting on “The Mummy,” Tariq Khan (Fox News) thinks it will be “Baywatch” and Peter Travers (Rolling Stone) is predicting “Transformers: The Last Knight.”

So it looks like a wide-open race, but “The Emoji Movie” is the consensus choice in our overall predictions for Worst Picture along with Worst Director and Worst Screenplay, which would make it the biggest winner on a night when we’re expecting Razzie voters to spread the wealth. Check out our complete predictions by film below.
