The Golden Raspberry Awards Foundation has announced its nominations for the 35th Annual Razzie Awards this year… and, in keeping with tradition, the list of nominees includes several 2014 movies that are ranked among the worst titles released last year (by critics and regular filmgoers alike), as well as a number of features that fall more into the “Love to Hate” category for cinephiles and fans alike.

“Leading” the way are such features as Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas – currently sitting at the bottom of IMDb’s worst 100 films list – and director Renny Harlin’s The Legend of Hercules, the latter of which also snagged a spot on our Worst Movies of 2014.

Other multi-nominees this year include Transformers: Age of Extinction and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (direct and produced by Michael Bay, respectively) – again, those kind of “love to hate” blockbusters that have their fair share of defenders (including members of the Screen Rant staff). Certain films that took a heavy beating from critics got a free pass from the Razzies (A Haunted House 2, Sabotage, and so forth) and there were some odd selections too (Mel Gibson for Expendables 3) but as was mentioned before, these anti-Oscars are never really about recognizing “the Worst” in Cinema for any particular year.

However, one thing that will be different about this year is that the Razzies ceremony will include a “Razzie Redeemer Award” for former Razzie winners (like Ben Affleck) who’ve since turned their career around. That doesn’t sound like a bad idea at all, really.
