Another year, another Oscars ceremony sees the best filmmakers awarded for their astounding work, this year’s awards likely going to the likes of Three Billboards, The Shape of Water, and Dunkirk.

As always, days before the celebration, Hollywood’s most cynical awards are presented: the Razzies, given to what are deemed the worst movies produced the previous year.

This year’s Worst Picture award has gone to The Emoji Movie — the animated movie that saw Sir Patrick Stewart voice a poop Emoji and was deemed terrible by the majority of critics.

The Emoji Movie also picked up Worst Screen Combo for “Any Two Obnoxious Emojis”, Worst Director, and Worst screenplay.

The night’s other big ‘winner’ is Fifty Shades Freed. The latest sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey picked up Worst Remake, Sequel, or Spin-Off and Worst Supporting Actress for Kim Basinger.

Others to pick up awards are Tom Cruise for Worst Actor in The Mummy, Tyler Perry for Worst Actress in Boo! 2: A Madea Halloween, and Mel Gibson for Worst Supporting Actor in Daddy’s Home 2.

Meanwhile, the Oscars take place on Sunday (4 March), keep up with the latest on the awards here.
