The Razzie Awards: ready to honor the best of the worst. And this year's contenders are primed to make their stab at notoriety immortality. The 2018 nominations for the tongue-in-cheek awards fest have been announced, and they include a hodgepodge of genre fare that have fired up their fair share of chatter. 

Transformers: The Last Knight leads the pack with nine nominations. It's joined by The Mummy and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales among films that have scored multiple nods, with The Mummy and Transformers up for Worst Picture. The former (starring Tom Cruise and directed by Star Trek scribe Alex Kurtzman) is an especially noteworthy clunker, as it was meant to kickstart Universal's Dark Universe but ended up nipping those plans in the bud with its abysmal reception.

Meanwhile, Javier Bardem and Anthony Hopkins scored twofer nominations each for Worst Supporting Actor — Bardem for his performances in Dead Men Tell No Tales and Mother!, and Hopkins for The Last Knight and Collide

The 38th Annual Razzie Awards will take place on March 3, the night before the 90th Academy Awards are held. 

The Razzie folks revealed the nominees in a hilarious, old school-inspired educational video on handling hazardous materials — check it out, along with the nominees:
