In the most ignominious individual categories, Cameron Diaz was nominated for worst actress in The Other Woman and Sex Tape as well as worst supporting actress in the critically derided Annie. Seth MacFarlane was also nominated for his comic western A Million Ways to Die in the West. He is in the running for worst actor alongside Kellan Lutz, Kirk Cameron, Nicolas Cage and Adam Sandler. The latter is no stranger to the Razzies and has been nominated 10 times - winning on three occasions.

Teenage TurtlesMIchael Bay's other bright idea - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - also made the Razzies shortlist

However, it's not all bad for this year's nominees. For 2015, the Razzies have introduced a generally positive new category - the "redeemer" role, for stars who have tossed aside their critically mauled past projects and moved on to bigger and better things. Online voters must choose between Ben Affleck (now Batman), Jennifer Aniston (who turned in an excellent performance in Cake), Mike Myers (who's still not very good), Keanu Reeves (who appeared in one of the year's best thrillers in John Wick) and Kristen Stewart (who was excellent in Still, Alice).

Last year's Razzie for Worst Picture went to Movie 43, with Jaden Smith winning Worst Actor for After Earth and Tyler Perry winning Worst Actress for A Madea Christmas.
