As the Academy honoured the best in the film industry, the 2014 Razzie Awards paid tribute to the worst of 2013 cinema the evening before the glitzy Oscar ceremony. Big budget sci-fi flop "After Earth" and ensemble comedy "Movie 43" were all on the list.

"After Earth," starring Will Smith and his teenage son Jaden, picked up three gold spray-painted raspberry accolades: Jaden Smith for worst actor, Will Smith for worst supporting actor and worst screen combo for the father-son stars.

The $130 million film, co-written by Will Smith and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, was a major flop for Sony’s Columbia Pictures last year, grossing just $60 million at the U.S. and Canadian box office.

Relativity Media’s "Movie 43," which features 16 off-beat comedy sketches with stars such as Kate Winslet and Hugh Jackman, won worst picture, worst screenplay for its 19 screenwriters, and worst director for its 13 filmmakers.

This year’s worst actress went to another Razzie regular, actor-director Tyler Perry in drag for the lead character of "A Madea Christmas."

Disney’s "The Lone Ranger" starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, one of last summer’s notable big-budget flops, was named worst remake/rip-off or sequel. The film, made for more than $200 million, failed to perform at the box office and lost $190 million for the studio.

The Razzies was created in 1980 as an antidote to the backslapping of Hollywood’s awards season and now in its 34th year.
