It's that time of the year again, folks. Yes, it's time to celebrate the worst in film! The professional movie trolls have spoken and the nominees of the Golden Raspberry Awards are in. And, while some aren't exactly shockers (Adam Sandler has to win awards somehow, right?), others have caused a few raised eyebrows.

Just kidding.

Anyone who's seen Sam Taylor-Wood's adaptation of E.L. James's 50 Shades of Grey would (see: should) agree that it's pretty far from Oscar worthy material, but the Razzie's have just placed the saucy cinematic on par with Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2. Ouch. That's gotta hurt.

Nominated in a grand total of six categories; Worst Picture, Worst Actress, Worst Actor, Worst Screen Combo, Worst Director, and Worst Screenplay, 50 Shades is only three trophies short of winning every single category, like Sandler's Jack and Jill did back in 2012.

Channing Tatum's 
Jupiter Ascending also bagged six, closely followed by Pixels and Fantastic Four, which received five nominations, including Worst Screenplay for their adaptation of the Marvel comic by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.

The Razzie nominations are announced to their unfortunate, and hopefully good humored, recipients one day before the eagerly awaited Oscar Nominations. And, as Sandra Bullock proved in 2009, good humor goes a long way. That year she became the first actress ever to receive a Razzie and an Academy Award in the same year.

Watch her hilarious Razzie acceptance speech for 'All About Steve':
