The 2018 nominees for the mock awards show were unveiled yesterday, a day before the Academy Awards nominations. 

This year, 'Baywatch,' 'The Emoji Movie,' 'Fifty Shades Darker,' 'The Mummy,' and 'Transformers: The Last Knight' received nominations as worst picture for the 38th annual Golden Raspberry Awards.

Here's our take on the best and worst movies (and TV shows) of 2017: 

'Fifty Shades Darker' and the fifth 'Transformers' movie, called 'Transformers XVII: The Last Knight' in the announcement, led the pack both with eight nominations, each with a nomination in every category bar one - worst actress for 'Transformers', worst supporting actor for 'Fifty Shades'.

'The Mummy' followed closely behind with seven nominations including worst actor and supporting actor for Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe. 

Jennifer Lawrence was nominated for worst actress for 'Mother!' with Darren Aronofsky and Javier Bardem adding to the film's total with worst director and actor nods.  

The nominations were released with this video titled "how to protect humanity from toxic waste." 

"Welcome to the 38th Razzie Nominees," the announcement says. "Simply defined, Razzie hazardous waste is material with properties that make it dangerous or capable of having a harmful effect on human health or the environment."

Winners will be announced on March 3, the day before the Oscars ceremony.

Other actors on the list include Tom Cruise for 'The Mummy,' Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan for 'Fifty Shades Darker,' Emma Watson for 'The Circle,' and Tyler Perry for 'Boo 2! A Madea Halloween' (in the worst actress category).
