The Razzies: Dishonoring the Worst of the Worst for 2018

The Golden Raspberry Award


Now that we know which movies are up for this years Academy Awards, aka “The Oscars,” it is time to take a look at the other end of the spectrum. The only thing sadder than the movies that made the list for the 2018 Golden Raspberry Awards, aka “The Razzies” is that most of them still made a lot of money, which means Hollywood will churn out more of the same in the coming year.

On top of the heap is Transformers XVII: The Last Knight coming in with a whopping nine nominations followed by Fifty Shades Darker with eight. (Ironically, the latter’s next installment comes to theater on Valentine’s Day) Universal’s start of its reboot of the studio’s iconic monsters film series, The Mummy, comes with seven nominations and lastly, Baywatch and The Emoji Movie both bring four nominations to the table.

How bad are these movies? It depends on who you ask, but if you ask Rotten Tomatoes, they’ll tell you that Baywatch ranked the highest with an 18% “rotten” score. Transformers and The Mummy both received 16%, Fifty Shades received 10%, and The Emoji Movie received the lowest at just 9%. But wait, there’s more! These are just the biggest “losers” of the year. There are plenty more where those came from.

The last few years, the official Razzies website has offered a list of contenders for the “Razzie Redemption Award,” but sadly, there is no mention of such award on the website this year.
