The Razzie awards, designating the worst in cinema, take place every year just ahead of the Oscars


The annual 'Razzies' are held to honour the worst films of the past year and "The Emoji Movie" has been richly rewarded for 2017.

Sony Pictures children's film about talking emoticons earned four Golden Raspberries, including Worst Picture, Worst Director and Worst Screenplay.

In its 38th year, the Razzies serves as a tongue-in-cheek alternative to Sunday's Academy Awards.

They are chosen by more than 1,000 voting members from more than 26 countries, organisers say.

Other 'winners' include Tom Cruise, named Worst Actor for his leading role as a US Army sergeant who accidentally unleashes mayhem by disturbing an ancient grave in the much-maligned action reboot "The Mummy".

Tyler Perry, a perennial Razzie punching bag, took home the Worst Actress Raspberry for his popular drag character Madea in "Boo 2: A Medea Halloween".
