LOS ANGELES, Feb. 1 (UPI) -- Hollywood's "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" and "Land of the Lost" earned seven nods apiece when Razzie Award nominations were announced Monday.
The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation said it will announce the winners of its prizes for last year's Berry Worst "Achievements" in Film at a ceremony at Hollywood's Barnsdall Gallery Theatre March 6 -- the night before Oscars recognizing the best in film for 2009 are to be handed out.
Razzie nominations are traditionally announced the day before Oscar nominations are revealed. This year's Academy Award nominees are scheduled to be announced Tuesday.
"Transformers" earned Razzie nods for worst director and worst picture, as well as worst remake, rip-off or sequel, worst screenplay, worst supporting actress for Julie White, worst screen couple for Shia Le Bouf and either Megan Fox or any Transformer, and worst actress for Fox, who was dually nominated for this film and "Jennifer's Body."
"Land of the Lost" star Will Ferrell is listed in the categories of worst actor and worst screen couple, along with any co-star, creature or comic riff.
The film itself is also nominated for worst picture, worst director, worst screenplay, worst remake, rip-off or sequel and worst supporting actor for Jorma Taccone.
Rounding out the list of worst picture contenders are "Old Dogs," "G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra" and "All About Steve."
In addition to Ferrell, the nominees for worst actor are all three Jonas Brothers for "Jonas Brothers: The 3-D Concert Experience," Steve Martin for "Pink Panther 2," Eddie Murphy for "Imagine That" and John Travolta for "Old Dogs."
Competing with Fox in the worst actress category are Beyonce for "Obsessed," Sandra Bullock for "All About Steve," Miley Cyrus for "Hannah Montana: The Movie" and Sarah Jessica Parker for "Did You Hear About the Morgans?"
Nominees were determined by mailing ballots to 647 Foundation members in 46 U.S. states and 19 foreign countries.
The organization said the Razzies were created in 1980 as "a logical antidote to Tinsel Town's annual glut of self-congratulatory awards by John Wilson, author of "The Official Razzie Movie Guide' and 'Everything I Know I Learned at the Movies.'"
