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

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.

Tyler Perry took home a Razzie for Worst Actress in the film Boo 2! A Madea Halloween.

Oscar Winners Mel Gibson and Kim Basinger won the Worst Supporting Razzies for their performances in Daddy’s Home 2 and Fifty Shades Darker, respectively.

In a shocker, perennial Razzie favorite Michael Bay’s latest Transformers outing came up empty-handed, despite leading the pack with nine nominations.

This year, the Razzies also included an “In Memorium” tribute to those actors whose careers ended in 2017, a list that included Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, James Toback, and Louis C.K.

The very first Special Rotten Tomatoes Award, the result of an online poll with the website, was bestowed upon Baywatch for “The Razzie Nominee So Bad You Loved It!”
