'Transformers,' 'Fifty Shades Darker' Lead 2018 Razzie Nominations

'The Mummy,' 'Baywatch' and 'Mother!' also recognized among "worst achievements in film" in 2017

'Transformers: The Last Knight' and 'Fifty Shades Darker' were among the nominees at the Razzies, honoring 2017's worst films.

Transformers: The Last Knight, Fifty Shades Darker and The Mummy were among the nominees for the 38th annual Golden Raspberry Awards ("The Razzies"), which celebrates the "worst achievements in film."

The latest Transformers installment locked down an industry-leading nine nominations, including Worst Picture, Worst Screen Combo ("Any Combination of Two Humans, Two Robots or Two Explosions"), Worst Director (Michael Bay), Worst Screenplay and worst acting nods for four of the film's stars: Anthony Hopkins, Josh Duhamel, Laura Haddock and Mark Wahlberg, who was also nominated for Worst Actor for his work in Daddy's Home 2.

The Transformers series previously "won" the Razzie for Worst Picture in 2009 with Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Transformers: The Last Knight was also crowned Rolling Stone's Worst Film of 2017.

After Fifty Shades of Grey tied for Worst Picture in 2016, the sequel is now also nominated in that category, along with stars Dakota Johnson (Worst Actress) and Jamie Dornan (Worst Actor) – both winners in that category in 2016 – Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel, Worst Screenplay, Worst Director (James Foley), Worst Supporting Actress (Kim Basinger) and Worst Screen Combo ("Any Combination of Two Characters, Two Sex Toys or Two Sexual Positions").

The Mummy was similarly nominated in all the major categories, including Worst Picture, Worst Supporting Actor and Actress (Russell Crowe and Sofia Boutella, respectively) and Worst Actor for Tom Cruise, who is vying for his first Razzie following losses in 1988 for Cocktail and 2005 for War of the Worlds.

Baywatch and The Emoji Movie round out the Worst Picture category. The Razzies, a beacon of controversy, also nominated Jennifer Lawrence for Worst Actress for her role in Mother!, with director Darren Aronofsky also recognized for his work on that horror film. By contrast, Peter Travers gave the film three-and-a-half stars in his Rolling Stone review.

The Golden Raspberry Awards winners will be announced on March 3rd, one day before the Academy Awards. At the 2017 ceremony, the "documentary" Hillary's America won Worst Picture while Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice picked up four awards.
