On the cusp of the all important Oscar nominations tomorrow morning, the nominations for the highly-influential (though for entirely different reasons) 36th annual Golden Raspberry Awards were announced this morning in Los Angeles. The “Razzies,” as they’re more commonly known, seek to honor (sarcastically) the worst movies of the year, and the 2016 race features a log-jam of frontrunners including a sci-fi opus, a mall cop comedy, an erotic drama based on Twilight fan fic, and the ubiquitous Adam Sandler entry. As usual, this year’s Razzie noms include previous Oscar winners, those currently in contention for Oscars, and those who just continually make bad decisions when choosing movies to make.

As per usual, the Razzies will handing out hardware and naming the Worst Picture, Worst Actor, Worst Actress, Worst Director, and so on in five other categories. The tenth category, the Razzie Redeemer Award, in which a past Razzie winner will be honored for their 2015 comeback to greatness, will be determined with a public vote of users at Rotten Tomatoes. Elizabeth Banks, M. Night Shyamalan, Will Smith and Sylvester Stallone will all slug it out for that one.

As for the primary intent of the Razzies, highlighting the worst of the year, it’s a four-way race between Jupiter Ascending, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, Pixels, and Fifty Shades of Grey, which are all tied for six nominations each. Coming in the second worst is everyone’s favorite comic book movie punching bag from 2015, Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four with five nominations. Alvin & The Chipmunks: Road Chip and Mortdecai got three nods each.

As for individual achievement, last year’s Best Actor Oscar-winner (and presumptive nominee this year for The Danish Girl) Eddie Redmayne got a Worst Supporting Actor Razzie nom for Jupiter Ascending, while last year’s Best Actress Oscar-winner Julianne Moore is up for Worst Supporting Actress for Seventh Son. Rooney Mara, widely expected to be Oscar-nominated tomorrow for her critically-acclaimed role in Carol, will compete against Moore thanks to her role in Pan.
