The Razzie Awards—also known as the Golden Raspberry Awards—have been running since 1980 and serve as a spoof of the prestigious Academy Awards, which aims to highlight the worst movies of the year.

John Wilson, the founder of the Razzies, told the BBC: "It’s an old Hollywood traditional that somebody who is a star tries to make members of their family a star, and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t."

Meanwhile, the Worst Picture prize was awarded to Movie 43, which stars Kate Winslet, Hugh Jackman, and Halle Berry; while The Lone Ranger, starring Johnny Depp, was crowned the Worst Remake Sequel.
