Some movies, such as Fifty Shades of Grey, are so bad, they deserve recognition. At least, that's the verdict of the committee for the Raspberry Awards.

More commonly known as the "RAZZIES," the show calls out supreme underachievement in Hollywood for categories such as "worst film" and "worst actor." The naughty romantic movie, which came out last February, received five of the top honors at the award show.

The awards ceremony comes the eve before the 2016 Oscar ceremony, and many past Oscar winners can be found on the RAZZIES list. That's because, the site explains, the award show is meant to encourage acclaimed actors and filmmakers to own up to their worst works.

"The $4.97 gold spray-painted Razzie Award is handed out to otherwise great talent who should know better than to associate their name with sub-par projects," reads the awards' Twitter bio.

Last year they even began a category for past RAZZIES winners and nominees who had seen the error of their ways, dubbed "The Redeemer Award."

The nominees for the RAZZIES were determined by voting from paying members of its committee.

To make the nominations announcement in January, the organization released a unique video that gave another humorous twist to the already half-serious proceedings. In it, an experiment "test subject" is forced to listen to the nominees in a way that, for a film-lover, seems to amount to torture.
