Megan Fox is no stranger to the Razzie Awards. The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation, which is now in its 35th year, honors the best of the worst films of the year and is often held the night before the Academy Awards. Fox has been nominated for Razzie Awards five times now, two of those for her work in the failed adaptation of the Jonah Hex comic book. Now, Fox was finally “honored” with the award for Worst Supporting Actress for last year’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Jonathan Liebesman-directed and Michael Bay-produced movie is also nominated for Worst Picture, and Worst Prequel, Remake, Ripoff or Sequel.
Other Razzie “winners” include Michael Bay, who won the award for Worst Director for Transformers: Age of Extinction. He previously won the same award for Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen. Actor Kirk Cameron and his film Kirk Cameron’ Saving Christmas also won the awards for Worst Actor, Worst Picture, Worst Screenplay, and Worst Screen Combo.

Ben Affleck, on the other hand, won the inaugural Razzie Redeemer Award. The award is given to actors who have redeemed themselves, which Affleck proved with his recent work including Argo and Gone Girl.
Despite performing well in the box office, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles proved to be a critical failure and is widely considered as one of the worst movies of 2014. In his review of the movie for The Telegraph, Robbie Collin wrote, “The script is equal parts pop-culture references, toilet humour and patience-sapping contrivance, while the director, Jonathan Liebesman, has yet to twig after making Wrath of the Titans two years ago that 3D visuals and jerky, quick-cut camerawork don’t mix.”
A sequel to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is currently in the works, and Megan Fox is set to return to reprise her role as April O’ Neil.
