Transformers: The Last Knight is once again set to steal the show at the Golden Raspberry Awards.
The fifth installment of Hasbro's highly lucrative Transformers film series has been nominated for nine nominations this year. That puts the movie ahead of the likes of Fifty Shades Darker, The Mummy, Baywatch, and The Emoji Movie in total nominations.
The Last Knight is up for Worst Picture, Worst Actor (Mark Wahlberg), Worst Supporting Actor (Josh Duhamel and Anthony Hopkins), Worst Supporting Actress (Laura Haddock), Worst Screen Combo ("Any combination of two humans, two robots or two explosions"), Worst Sequel, Worst Director (Michael Bay) and Worst Screenplay.
The Transformers franchise has a special history with the Razzies. In 2015, Age of Extinction was nominated for seven awards. Dark of the Moon was nominated for 8 awards in 2012, Revenge of the Fallen won three awards, including Worst Picture, in 2010, and the original film was nominated for one.
Released on June 21, 2017, Transformers: The Last Knight ultimately made over $605 million against a budget that was estimated to hover around $250 million, making it the least successful film of the franchise. The winners and losers of the 38th Golden Raspberry Awards will be announced on March 3.
