'Fifty Shades of Grey' picked up three prizes at the Razzie Awards 2016, a ceremony which recognises the worst in film performances.

The erotic drama lead the way at the tongue-in-cheek annual ceremony - which recognises the worst performances in film - with stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson picking up Worst Actor and Worst Actress respectively, as well as Worst Screen Combo.

The adaptation of E.L. James' fantasy novel also scooped Worst Screenplay and tied for Worst Picture with 'Fantastic Four'.

The comic book remake also picked up Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel and its helmsman Josh Trank was named Worst Director.

While Eddie Redmayne is nominated for Best Actor at tonight's (28.02.16) Oscars - the same prize he picked up last year - it seems not everyone is impressed with his acting talents, as his turn in 'Jupiter Ascending' saw him named Worst Supporting Actor, while Kaley Cuoco picked up the Worst Supporting Actress prize.

On a more positive note, 'Creed' actor Sylvester Stallone won the Razzie Redeemer Award, which is awarded to stars who have gone from past winners at the ceremony to career success.

Winners of the Razzies - which are also known as the Golden Raspberry awards - are voted for online by around 900 members of the Razzies committee, and anyone can sign up to vote, with memberships starting at $40.
