Those walking, talking piles of poop who proudly claimed “we’re No. 2!” in “The Emoji Movie” were named the winners (or should we say, the losers?) of the Worst Picture of 2017 in the 38th annual Golden Raspberry Awards, aka the Razzies.

“Leading this year’s list of movie-misfires is the emoticon-based, talking poop opus,” the Razzies said in a statement, adding that the panned film came in a year when “Hollywood’s recycled trash heap attained an all-time high” and saw a “toxic-level lack of originality.”

Voting Razzie members (1,009 film buffs, entertainment journalists and other strongly opinionated movie goers from 49 states and 25 foreign countries) cast their ballots online, selecting five final contenders in nine categories.

Worst actor of the year went to someone who’s been nominated lots of times but never won, “proving practice does make a perfect Razzie recipient,” the announcement said. The winner/loser: Tom Cruise for his role in “The Mummy.”

Leading “actress” went to Tyler Perry for his tenth appearance as Medea, this time in “BOO! 2: A Medea Halloween.” Supporting awards were “won” by Kim Basinger for “Fifty Shades Darker” and Mel Gibson for “Daddy Home 2,” a performance which the London Guardian called “a grinning death’s head of unfunniness.”
