The 35th annual Golden Raspberry Awards (better known as the Razzies) nominations are out, and it was a not a good year for “Transformers,” which led the field with seven nominations.

Kirk Cameron was well-represented as well with six nominations. The remake of his “Left Behind” series got nominations for its new star Nicolas Cage, and for Worst Picture. It must compete with “Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas,” as well as “The Legend of Hercules,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” and “Transformers: Age of Extinction.”

While she was’t in the latest “Transformers” film, Megan Fox still earned a nod for Worst Supporting Actress for her work in “TMNT.” She’ll square off against her “Transformers” replacement Nicola Peltz, just as Cameron will square off against Cage for Worst Actor.

Adam Sandler, a perrennial Razzie favorite, is up for Worst Actor for his performance in “Blended, while his co-star Drew Barrymore is up for Worst Actress, sharing the honor with Melissa McCarthy (“Tammy”), Cameron Diaz (“The Other Woman” & “Sex Tape”), Gaia Weiss (“The Legend of Hercules”) and Charlize Theron (“A Million Ways to Die in the West”)

Seth MacFarlane’s western comedy is up for four awards, including Worst Actor (MacFarlane), worst director (MacFarlane) and Worst Screen Combo (MacFarlane and Theron). In the latter category, they’ll face off against Cameron and his ego from “Saving Christmas,” any two robots or actors from “Transformers,” Diaz and Jason Segel in “Sex Tape,” and Kellan Lutz and either his abs, pecs or glutes in “The Legend of Hercules.”

Showing its softer side, the Razzie debuts the Redeemer Award for 2015, singling out those stars who have picked themselves up from past Razzies glory and gone on to genuine critical acclaim. This year’s nominees include Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Mike Meyers, Keanu Reeves and Kristen Stewart.
