Jennifer Lawrence nominated for Worst Actress

Jennifer Lawrence nominated for Worst Actress

The Transformers: The Last Knight team woke up to bad news that no one in the film industry would ever want to hear. Meanwhile, both Josh Duhamel and Anthony Hopkins picked up Worst Supporting Actor nominations and Laura Haddock earned a Worst Supporting Actress nomination. The nominations come at the most inopportune time for Wahlberg as he is still facing backlash for his "divo" antics while he re-filmed several scenes for All the Money in the World. While mother! managed to escape the dreaded Worst Picture category, Lawrence, Javier Bardem, and Aronofksy were all singled out for their categories (in Aronofsky's case, it's for directing, not writing, even if it might have been his pen and not his lens that lead to so much of the divisiveness surrounding the film).

The big ticket nominees were just announced for the 38th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards, revealing which movies and actors are being honored with the dubious distinction of being awful.

The nominations for the 2018 Razzie Awards were announced Sunday in a video placed on the Razzie's YouTube channel.

More news: Mertens keeps Napoli top of Serie A

Universal Pictures' latest reboot of the horror classic, The Mummy, received seven nominations.

The film, released last summer, is named in the worst picture, worst screen combo, worst screenplay and worst remake, ripoff or sequel categories. Handsome but stupid film Valerian was also spared (much to the delight of Cara Delevingne, we're sure), and, perhaps most interestingly of all, the Razzies didn't make the choice to stick it to Harvey Weinstein by nominating Tulip Fever. Tyler Perry is also nominated for his performance as Madea in Boo 2! Jennifer Lawrence finds herself with an unwanted nomination. The award organization also "honored" Bardem for his work in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. The Razzies did double down on their decidedly meh joke from previous year - nominating Tyler Perry for playing Madea again - so perhaps they were simply out of ideas for this category?

The nominees for Best Actress also have more distinctions for Fifty Shades Darker with Dakota Johnson in consideration, alongside Katherine Heigl for Unforgettable, Emma Watson for The Circle, Jennifer Lawrence for mother!
