Published Mar 03, 2018It's Oscar weekend, but there are also some far less auspicious film prizes being handed out — the 38th Golden Raspberry Awards, also known as the Razzies, which celebrate (or shame, depending on your perspective) the worst films of the year.
The awards were handed out today in Los Angeles, and The Emoji Movie took home Worst Picture (beating out Baywatch, Fifty Shades Darker, The Mummy and Transformers: The Last Knight). Emoji Movie director Tony Leondis also took home Worst Director. The award for Worst Screen Combo went to "any two obnoxious emojis" from the same film, and it also won Worst Screenplay. We're terribly sorry, Saudi Arabia.
As for the acting prizes, Tom Cruise was named Worst Actor for The Mummy (beating out Johnny Depp, Jamie Dornan, Zac Efron and Mark Wahlberg) and Tyler Perry took home Worst Actress for his gender-bending turn in Boo 2! A Madea Halloween (topping Katherine Heigl, Dakota Johnson, Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson).
Worst Supporting Actor was Mel Gibson in Daddy's Home 2 and Worst Supporting Actress was Kim Basinger in Fifty Shades Darker. The latter film also won Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel.
As for the backhanded yet complimentary category the Razzie Nominee So Rotten You Loved It, it went to Baywatch. Watch a video of the awards being announced below, plus an "In Memoriam" clip that mocks industry figures who have ruined their careers (namely Harvey Weinstein).
