(WTNH)– It’s officially awards season when several movies stars and films are acclaimed for their work. But not everyone had a good 2014 in Hollywood. That’s where the Razzies come in, to bring attention to the worst screen achievements, and the nominees for this year were announced Wednesday.

Leading with seven nominations is Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Age of Extinction.” Those nominations include worst screenplay, sequel, picture and a worst director nod for Bay.

Right behind that is “Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas” and “The Legend of Hercules,” each with six nominations. Both are up for worst picture. While Cameron and the star of Hercules, Kellan Lutz, are up for worst actor, “Cameron and his ego” are nominated for worst screen combo.

A couple names on the list that may be surprising to some are the popular Seth MacFarlane, who has a few nominations for “A Million Ways to Die in the West” and A-list celeb Cameron Diaz, who is nominated for both “Sex Tape” and “Annie. ”

The Razzies have also launched a new category called the Redeemer Award for past Razzie winners who have gone on to bigger and better things.
