Jennifer Lawrence earns Razzie nom for her role in 'mother!'

According to the organisers, 87 of the top-earning 100 films a year ago were "sequels, remakes or rip-offs".

Transformers: The Last Knight and Fifty Shades Darker are the top contenders to be named worst movie of 2017 at the upcoming Golden Raspberry Awards.

Mocking Hollywood's reliance on franchises, the film is listed as "Transformers XVII" in the nominations.

It's a big change in fortunes for Lawrence who just six years ago won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role as Tiffany Maxwell in Silver Linings Playbook.

Perhaps the most memorable category is worst screen combo, where Transformers XVII is nominated for "any combination of two humans, two robots or two explosions".

Darren Aronofsky, the movie's director, is nominated as Worst Director.

Rounding out the Worst Picture nominations are The Mummy, Baywatch and The Emoji Movie.

WORST ACTRESS Katherine Heigl, Unforgettable Dakota Johnson, Fifty Shades Darker Jennifer Lawrence, mother!

Transformers is one of the most reviled franchises in Razzies' history, receiving a worst picture nomination for every instalment except the first. Obviously, it's not much of an honor to be declared as one of the worst in your field, as last year's big "winners" - Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Hillary's America: The Secret History of The Democratic Party - surely discovered.

The Razzies will take place on March 3, 2018, which is the day before the Oscars.
