Transformers: Age of Extinction leads Razzie Award nominations

Transformers: Age of ExtinctionThe year 2014 showed the world some great movies, including Guardians of the Galaxy and The LEGO Movie. However, it wasn’t without its fair share of bad films that we could have done without. Just one day before the highly anticipated prestigious 87th Academy Award nominations, The Golden Raspberry Awards — better known as the Razzie Awards — announced their 2014 nominations for the worst achievements in film.

Despite being the highest money-making film at the 2014 worldwide box office, Transformers: Age of Extinction topped the list with seven nominations. They included Worst Picture, Worst Screenplay and Worst Director for Michael Bay. Close behind was Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas and The Legend of Hercules, each with six nominations.

Cameron Diaz is on the list three times for varying roles: Worst Actress (The Other Woman, Sex Tape), Worst Supporting Actress (Annie) and Worst Screen Combo (Sex Tape with Jason Segel).

Seth MacFarlane also scored three nominations for his film A Million Ways to Die in the WestHe was nominated for Worst Actor, Worst Director and Worst Screen Combo with Charlize Theron.

Celebrating their 35th Anniversary, the Razzie Awards announced a brand new category titled The Razzie Redeemer Award.
