Not even Fifty Shades Darker could pull off a win against the disastrous animated film, The Emoji Movie. The 38th Annual Razzie Awards were announced on Saturday, March 3, 2018, taking place the day prior to the Oscars and honoring the worst feature films and performances of 2017.

This year’s Razzies went all in on The Emoji Movie, naming the critically panned film Worst Picture and awarding it Worst Director (Anthony Leondis) and Worst Screenplay awards. The Emoji Movie picked up a total of four Razzies, with Fifty Shades Darker following with two. The Mummy, Baywatch, and Daddy’s Home 2 each were (dis)honored with one Razzie win.

Sony Pictures Animation’s The Emoji Movie explored the world of emojis inside our smartphones. The 2017 animated comedy featured the voices of T.J. Miller, James Corden, Anna Faris, Steven Wright, and Patrick Stewart. Surprisingly, the comedy which registered a 9% rotten score on Rotten Tomatoes made $217 million worldwide during its theatrical run.
