With seven, Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction leads the nominations for the 2014 Golden Raspberry Awards (or Razzies), which recognize the worst Hollywood has to offer. The film received nods for Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst Supporting Actor and Actress (Nicola Peltz and Kelsey Grammer), Worst Screenplay, Worst Screen Combo and Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel.
Transformers was trailed closely by The Legend of Hercules, Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
In addition to the usual categories, this year the Razzies will introduce the Redeemer Award, acknowledging a former winner who's made good.
John Wilson created the awards in 1980 as a way to poke fun at Hollywood's tendency to pat itself on the back. The recipients will be announced Feb. 21, the night before the Academy Awards. Here's the full list of nominations:
