Transformers: The Last Knight might just take home all the awards…

At the Razzies, at least.

That’s right – The Golden Raspberry Awards has announced its full list of nominations… and it looks as though Transformers: The Last Knight is leading the charge.

Transformers: The Last Knight is the fifth, and so far lowest-grossing, instalment in the Transformers franchise… and at this year’s Razzies, it’s up for Worst Picture, Worst Actor, Worst Supporting Actor (for both Anthony Hopkins and Josh Duhamel), Worst Supporting Actress, Worst Screen Combo (for Any Combination of Two Humans, Two Robots or Two Explosions), Worst Remake, Rip-Off, or Sequel, Worst Director, and Worst Screenplay.

James Franco Accused Of Sexual Misconduct

In fact, the only category it didn’t land a nomination was Worst Actress.

Elsewhere, The Mummy has bagged 7 nominations, including Tom Cruise for Worst Actor.

And I can’t help thinking this is the closest Universal’s Monsters will be getting to any real trophies anytime soon.

The Golden Raspberry Awards (also known as the Razzies) celebrate the worst movies of the year, and are often awarded the night before the Oscars. And this year, the nominations come just a day before the official Oscar nominations, too.

Unsurprisingly, the recent Baywatch movie has also landed itself a couple of Razzie nominations, and Emma Watson has found herself up for Worst Actress for the critically-panned The Circle.

The Emoji Movie also bagged four nominations, and Fifty Shades Darker is up for the rather amazing Worst Screen Combo, for “Any Combination of Two Characters, Two Sex Toys or Two Sexual Positions.”


Which movies will run away with the Razzies?

I can’t help thinking Transformers: The Last Knight is a sure bet.

And at least Michael Bay can go out with a bang.
