The Golden Raspberry Awards have become an annual Hollywood tradition.

For 38 years, the Razzies have celebrated the worst Hollywood has to offer.

On the Eve of the celebration for the cinema has had to offer, the Razzies were announced in Los Angeles and it should come as no surprise which stinkers managed to dominate the 36th annual edition of the awards.

The much-anticipated, poorly-received 50 Shades of Grey and the super-hero flop Fantastic Four cleaned up as both claimed several awards while also sharing the honour of being named the “Worst Picture” of 2016.

50 Shades stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson were named Worst Actor and Actress respectively, while also sharing the “Worst Screen Combo” honours.

Josh Trank, who directed the Fantastic Four, earned the Razzie as Worst Director while the movie also took home the honour of being the Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel 2015.

Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco managed to claim Worst Supporting Actress of the year for not one but two roles.

Her work in the Wedding Ringer along with her voicework in Alvin & The Chipmunks: Road Chip was recognized by the committee.

Eddie Redmayne, who has been nominated for an Oscar as Best Actor for his work in the Danish Girl, managed to impress the Razzie selection committee as well.

He was given the nod as worst supporting actor for his work in Jupiter Ascending.

The Razzies also take a moment to allow for some redemption with the Redeemer Award which recognizes a thespian whose work has revived a career.

This year Sylvester Stallone received the award for his supporting work in Creed. He had previously been named Worst Actor four times. (Rhinestone, 1984, Rambo: First Blood Part II, Rocky IV, 1985, Rambo III, 1988, Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot!, 1992.)

The Razzies were launched in 1980 as a spoof of Hollywood’s awards season. This year  they were selected by 943 voting members from 21 countries.
