Oscar nominations are out tomorrow, but today's announcement is much more entertaining: The annual Razzie, or Golden Raspberry, nods are here. The top honoree? Michael Bay's Transformers: Age of Extinction, with seven nominations, including worst picture, worst sequel, and worst screenplay, the AP reports. Two films you may not even have heard of (The Legend of Hercules and Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas) are in second place with six nominations apiece.

All three of those were nominated for worst picture, along with Left Behind and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the AP reports. In the worst actor category: Cameron in his aforementioned flick, Nicolas Cage in Left Behind, Kellan Lutz in The Legend of Hercules, Seth MacFarlane in A Million Ways to Die in the West, and Adam Sandler in Blended. Up for worst actress: Drew Barrymore in Blended, Cameron Diaz in not one but two movies (The Other Woman and Sex Tape), Melissa McCarthy in Tammy, Charlize Theron in A Million Ways to Die in the West, and Gaia Weiss in The Legend of Hercules.
