Tom Cruise honored, Michael Bay snubbed at 38th Annual Razzie Awards

38TH Razzie Award Winners!

The Golden Raspberry Awards, the 38th annual gala honoring the worst performances in movies in 2017, were announced Saturday night. The Emoji Movie took home the Worst Picture award, the first animated film to achieve that dubious distinction. The movie also took home statues for Worst Screenplay, Worst Director, and Worst Screen Combo, nebulously given to “any two obnoxious emojis” from the film.

Tom “Running in movies since 1981” Cruise won the award for Worst Actor for his performance in The Mummy. It was the first Razzie for the veteran leading man, who was previously nominated for Cocktail and War of the Worlds.

Mission: Impossible 6

The fictional Ethan Hunt may be able to consistently pull off the impossible, but the actor who plays him, Tom Cruise, is only human.
