“The Emoji Movie” Leads the 38th Razzies with Four “Awards” (Video)

As usual, the 2017 Golden Raspberry Awards aka “The Razzies” were handed out the day before the Oscars, and possibly for the first time ever, an animated movie led the “winners” as Sony’s The Emoji Movie received four Razzies.

Razzie voters really hated the movie, giving it the top award of “Worst Picture” as well as Razzies for director Tony Leondis, Worst Screen Combo and Worst Screenplay. I’m sure that if they had a prize for “Worst Idea for a Movie” it would have won that as well, because no one who didn’t work for Sony thought an “emoji movie” was a good idea, even though it managed to gross over $200 million worldwide.

Universal Pictures received three Razzies, one for Tom Cruise’s performance in The Mummy and two for last year’s Fifty Shades Darker, including Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel and a Supporting Actress “prize” for Kim Basinger. It was Cruise’s fifth nomination and second win, previously sharing a Razzie with Brad Pitt for their performances in Interview with a Vampire.

The Razzies’ favorite target Tyler Perry converted his thirteenth nomination into his second “win,” receiving the Razzie for Worst Actress for his cross-dressing portrayal of Madea in Boo 2! A Madea Halloween after losing in the category last year for Boo! Perry’s previous win was in the same category, also for playing Madea in A Madea Christmas. We can probably expect Perry’s next Madea portrayal to be nominated for a Razzie again.

Michael Bay’s Transformers: The Last Knight was snubbed despite receiving nine Razzie nominations, the most of any movie in the running.
