Excellent movies and actors have to be celebrated – the reason for the Oscars – but mediocre movies and actors have to be called out so they can sit up and stretch themselves to attain their full potential. This is where the Razzie Awards come in.

Before the list of Oscars nominees came out, the Golden Raspberry Award as usual released its annual list of shame-shame nominees for savagely bad movies and bad actors of the year.

In a mock event that highlights the films and performances that have stood out for all the wrong reasons and disappointed the act of film-making in Hollywood last year, the major nominee is Transformers with nine nominations across a number of categories, including worst director, worst screenplay and worst feature. The others worst movies are BaywatchThe Emoji MovieThe Mummy and Fifty Shades Darker. The Mummy leads overall with a sweeping nomination in almost all the category. Its star Tom Cruise is called out as the worst actor of the year, alongside Mark Wahlberg, Javier Bardem and surprisingly Anthony Hopkins.

Also shockingly enough is Katherine Heigl, Dakota Johnson, Jennifer Lawrence, Tyler Perry and Emma Watson snagged up the names in the running for worst actress.

The winners will be announced March 3, the day before the Oscars, but you can check out the full list below.
