Latest 'Transformers' movie leads the pack in 'Razzie' award nominations

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - "Transformers XVII: The Last Knight" led the pack Monday as nominations were announced for the 38th annual Golden Raspberry Awards, which mock the year's biggest "movie misfires."

The fifth "Transformers" film got nine mentions. It's in the running for "worst picture," as are the multi-nomination recipients "Fifty Shades Darker" with eight, "The Mummy" with seven, and "Baywatch" and "The Emoji Movie," with four apiece.

Several performers were "recognized" for two performances in one category, including Mark Wahlberg, who's up for "worst actor" for "Daddy's Home 2" and "Transformers XVII"; Javier Bardem, nominated in the "worst supporting actor" category for "Mother!" and "Pirates of The Carribean: Dead Men Tell No Tales"; and Anthony Hopkins, who joins Bardem in that category for "Collide" and "Transformers XVII."

"Hollywood recycling reached an all-time high in 2017," organizers said in a statement accompanying the list of nominations, which are always unveiled a day before the Academy Award nominations. "Of the 100 biggest- grossing films released last year, at least 87 were either sequels, remakes or outright rip-offs of previous product."

The "winner" will be announced on March 3, the day before the Oscars ceremony.

Voting Razzie members include 1,009 film buffs, entertainment journalists and other movie-goers from 49 states and 25 foreign countries who cast ballots online, selecting five contenders in nine categories, according to the statement.
