Even The Mummy got some hate

It’s a time honored tradition to celebrate the worst movies cinema has on the eve of Oscar nominations.

There were plenty of rotten movies to celebrate in 2017, and the Razzie Awards are a reminder of just how often we suffered. Unlike The Post, Call Me by Your Name or Lady Bird, which made us recall upon some of cinema’s finest moments; The Emoji Movie and Transformers: The Last Knight made us hang our heads in shame for those involved.

Much like the Oscars, the Razzies have clear frontrunners. The Emoji Movie, Transformers: The Last Knight and Fifty Shades Darker are the clear favorites to take home the most awards for being absolutely terrible. Transformers: The Last Knight leads the nomination pool with nine nominees, including Worst Picture, Worst Director and Worst Actor for Mark Wahlberg. Sony’s terrifying movie about personalized emoji, The Emoji Movie, also received its fair share of nominations. The film earned nominations for Worst Picture and Worst Screenplay.

The full list of nominees can be read below. The Razzies will be announced on March 3, the day after the Oscars.
