Mel Gibson is among the nominees for the 2014 Razzies, Hollywood’s anti-awards celebrating the worst movies of the year.

Transformers 4: Age of Extinction topped the nominations, announced on Wednesday, with Michael Bay’s blockbuster sequel scoring nods in seven categories, including Worst Picture, Worst Screenplay and Worst Sequel for the Razzies.

· Which celebs will take part in ‘I’m A Celebrity Australia’
· Best and worst dressed at the Golden Globes

In second place, with six nominations each, were The Legend of Hercules and Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas, both of which were also shortlisted for Worst Picture.

The other Worst Picture contenders were Left Behind and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

In the acting categories, Gibson was nominated for worst supporting actor for his role in The Expendables 3.

Nicolas Cage, Cameron Diaz, Charlize Theron and Drew Barrymore were also among the stars given the dubious honour of being nominated for a Golden Raspberry.

Transformers director Bay also made the list for Worst Director, along with Seth MacFarlane for A Million Ways to Die in the West.

The Razzies were created in 1980 as an antidote to Hollywood’s star-studded back-slapping annual awards season, which climaxes on February 22 this year with the 87th Oscars.

All but one of the Razzie categories are chosen by the 800 or so members of the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation, who earn voting rights by paying an $US40 ($A43) membership fee, with a $US25 annual renewal.
