The Emoji Movie won big on Oscars weekend, though a smiley face is probably not the most apropos of emoticons.

The critically pummeled animated film with Patrick Stewart voicing the Poop Emoji was named worst picture at the 38th annual Razzies, the awards given out by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation to a slew of bad cinema the night before the Academy Awards. The Emoji Movie received four “honors” total, including worst director for Tony Leondis, worst screenplay and worst screen combo “for any two obnoxious emojis.”

The maligned beach reboot Baywatch won this year’s newest category, “The Razzie Contender So Rotten You Loved It,” which was voted on by Rotten Tomatoes users. And star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was all smiles about it on Instagram Sunday. “The movie was so bad they actually had to create another category,” he said in a video post. “I humbly and graciously accept my Razzie.”

Tom Cruise took worst actor for the maligned action-horror film The Mummy, while Tyler Perry won worst actress for his cross-dressing turn in Boo 2! A Madea Halloween. Worst supporting actor went to Mel Gibson for the comedy sequel Daddy’s Home 2, and Fifty Shades Darker star Kim Basinger got worst supporting actress. (The second Fifty Shades flick also was named worst sequel.)
