"Transformers 4: Age of Extinction" topped nominations announced Wednesday for the Razzies, Hollywood's anti-awards celebrating the worst movies of 2014.
Michael Bay's blockbuster sequel scored nods in seven categories, including Worst Picture, Worst Screenplay and Worst Sequel for the Razzies, which will be handed out on the eve of this year's Oscars.
In second place, with six nominations each, were "The Legend of Hercules" and "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas," both of which were also shortlisted for Worst Picture.
The other Worst Picture contenders were "Left Behind" and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles."
In the acting categories, Nicolas Cage, Cameron Diaz, Charlize Theron and Drew Barrymore were among stars given the dubious honor of being nominated for a Golden Raspberry.
Transformers director Bay also made the list for Worst Director, along with Seth MacFarlane for "A Million Ways to Die in the West."
The Razzies were created in 1980 as an antidote to Hollywood's star-studded back-slapping annual awards season, which climaxes on February 22 this year with the 87th Oscars.
All but one of the Razzie categories are chosen by the 800 or so members of the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation, who earn voting rights by paying an $40 membership fee, with a $25 annual renewal.
