‘Transformers,’ ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ lead Razzie nominations

For every “Lady Bird,” there’s a “Fifty Shades Darker.” For every Sam Rockwell in “Three Billboards,” there’s a Zac Efron in “Baywatch.”

And for those who’d rather soak in the schadenfreude that comes with watching terrible movies than tune in to the Oscars, there’s the Razzies.

The nominees for the 38th annual Gold Raspberry Awards — better known as “The Razzies” — were announced Monday, highlighting the very worst Tinsel Town had to offer in 2017.

Michael Bay’s “Transformers: The Last Night” earned the distinction (er, honor?) of scoring the most nominations with nine, including Worst Picture, Worst Actor and Worst Director.

Other notable nominees include “Fifty Shades Darker,” which scored eight nominations, and a nod for Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, for her turn in the controversial “mother!”

The lucky winners will be announced March 3, just one day before the Oscars hands out trophies of its own.
