Jennifer Lawrence earns Razzie nom for her role in 'mother!'

Jennifer Lawrence earns Razzie nom for her role in 'mother!'

The other contenders for worst film are Baywatch, Fifty Shades Darker, The Mummy and The Emoji Movie.

What if the Oscars... but bad?

This year's awards won't likely be as controversial, however, as the vast majority of nominees are painfully obvious, easy targets. "A Madea Halloween" round out the nominations for the category.

The nominations for the 2018 Razzie Awards were announced Sunday in a video placed on the Razzie's YouTube channel.

"Transformers" received the most Razzie nominations, being named in nine of 10 categories, including worst picture, worst actor, worst supporting actor (Anthony Hopkins), worst supporting actress (Laura Haddock) worst remake rip-off or sequel, worst director (Michael Bay), and worst screenplay.

While it's no surprise to see lame duck franchises like Transformers and 50 Shades getting trashed by the Razzies, there is a shocker or two to be found in the Worst Actress category.

Apart from the biggest offenders, the Razzies showed little mercy for reboots like Baywatch and The Mummy, and for the ongoing shenanigans of Tyler Perry and Johnny Depp in roles they've played for over a decade.

Emma Watson, Katherine Heigl and Dakota Johnson will battle it out for worst actress too, for their roles in The Circle, Unforgettable and Fifty Shades Darker.

The winners at the 38th edition of the spoof awards will be announced on 3 March (18) - the night before the annual Academy Awards. But hey, it's all in good fun, right?
