As stars toast the year’s greatest tonight at the Academy Awards, let’s remember the real winners here—the constant flow of stinkers churned out by the Hollywood machine. Hey, there can be a sense of honor in being the worst.

Unsurprisingly, Fifty Shades of Grey took home top honors at Saturday night’s 2016 Razzie Awards, which are devoted to rewarding Hollywood's biggest turds in the cinema punch bowl.

The BDSM drama tailor-made for silently frustrated suburban soccer moms cleaned up last night, taking home five Golden Razzies: Worst Picture, Worst Screenplay, Worst Actor (Jamie Dornan), Worst Actress (Dakota Johnson), and Worst Screen Combo (Dornan and Johnson). However, Fifty Shades did have to share the Worst Picture trophy with the misbegotten box-office bomb that was the ill-advised reboot of Fantastic Four.

Poor Dakota Johnson, daughter of Don, put herself through the wringer for her role in Grey: getting completely naked, acting out prolonged spanking scenes with stiff dialogue, and biting her lips so many times even Kristen Stewart would wince. But the film killed at the box office, and Dakota is following up with some stronger work better suited for her talent.

She was not the only winning loser Saturday night. Even last year’s Academy Award-winner Eddie Redmayne, who is again nominated this year for his sublime work in The Danish Girl, was given the Razzie stamp of disapproval. You win some; you lose some.
