The “winners” of the 39th annual Razzies have been announced, and “Holmes & Watson” has the dubious honor of being named Worst Picture. Director Etan Cohen was also singled out for his work on the critically panned comedy, as was Worst Supporting Actor winner John C. Reilly; co-star Will Ferrell escaped the same fate, as Donald Trump (as himself in “Death of a Nation” and “Fahrenheit 11/9”) is the year’s Worst Actor.

Melissa McCarthy, who earned a Worst Actress prize for her work in “The Happytime Murders” and “Life of the Party,” has the chance to follow up that laurel with an Oscar tomorrow night for her performance in “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” Read the full list of winners below:
