Razzie 'Worst Film' 2018 Nominations Are an Oscar-Studded Affair

According to the organisers, 87 of the top-earning 100 films a year ago were "sequels, remakes or rip-offs".

Nominations are out for the 38th annual Razzie Awards, honoring the worst that Hollywood has to offer filmgoers, and animated filmmaking was recognized in a big way this year.

Among the nods for worst picture were "Baywatch", "The Emoji Movie", "The Mummy", "Transformers: The Last Knight" and "Fifty Shades Darker".

Wahlberg is a worst actor nominee for his work in both, "Daddy's Home 2" and "Transformers: The Last Knight".

Perhaps the most memorable category is worst screen combo, where Transformers XVII is nominated for "any combination of two humans, two robots or two explosions".

Coming in second for most nominations, with eight out of 10, is "Fifty Shades Darker", the second installment of the "Fifty Shades" franchise.

Previous Oscar nominees Tom Cruise and Jonny Depp also received worst actor nominations, along with Jamie Dornan. "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" won the Razzie for Worst Picture in 2009.

Razzie winners will be announced on March 3, the day before the Oscars ceremony.

Despite lacklustre reviews, the 5th film in the series earned a healthy $605 million at the worldwide box office in 2017.
