The 2018 Razzie Nominations

Well, it's that time of year again, folks! The list of 2018 Razzie nominations has been released. Transformers: The Last Knight leads the pack with 9 nominations and Fifty Shades Darker is not far behind with 8 nominations. While most of the movies make sense, we're looking at you Emoji Movie, there are a couple of head-scratchers on the list. Mother!, for examplereceived multiple nominations and even one for Worst Director?!? I understand that the film provided strong reactions on either side of the spectrum, but I'm not quite sure if a polarizing film necessarily deserves to join the ranks of I Know Who Killed Me. Overall it appears as though it was a pretty light year in terms of bad movies. There are certainly no heavy-hitters like Jack & Jill, which still holds the title of most Razzies at 10. 

The "winners" will be announced March 3rd, just before the Oscars.

What do you think? When I look at this list I see a lot of meh movies, but nothing as brilliantly bad as The Room, Birdemic, or anything Neil Breen. I get it though, the Razzies are more of a way of poking fun at the entertainment industry, but I can't help but want a little more bad movie in my list of bad movies. As a lover of truly bad movies, I'd like to know, what was the worst movie you saw last year?

 Neil Breen, you'll always be the King.
