The day prior to the announcement of the Oscar nominations, the Golden Raspberry Award nominations for the worst films, actors, directors, and screenwriters were released. The 30th annual "Razzie" Awards will be presented in a traditional "Night Before the Academy Awards," March 6 in Los Angeles.

Leading the nominations is Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen which received seven Razzie nominations for worst film, worst director (Michael Bay), worst screenplay, and worst couple Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox or LaBeouf and any Transformer).

Another film taking seven nods is Land of the Lost, including worst picture, director, screenplay, and worst actor for comedian Will Ferrell.

Golden Globe winner Sandra Bullock, for The Blind Side - who is also a favored candidate for receiving the Oscar, got the Razzie nod as Worst Actress for her role in All About Steve.

Dubious honors also go to G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Old Dogs with Robin Williams and John Travolta, Hannah Montana: The Movie, The Jonas Brothers 3-D Concert Experience, and the blockbuster Twilight Saga: New Moon.

Created in 1980 by John Wilson, author of Everything I Know I Learned at the Movies, the Golden Raspberry is a tongue-in-cheek response to Hollywood's annual awards ritual. The voting body consists of 650 foundation members in the US and 19 foreign countries, including journalists, film fans and entertainment business executives.

In addition to the worst of 2009 categories, this year's ceremony will also salute the decade's clunkers, called the "Worst of the Uh-Ohs." The Worst Picture of the Decade nominations go to a deserving batch of forgettable films: Battlefield Earth (2001) starring John Travolta and Forrest Whittaker, Freddy Got Fingered (2001) with comedian Tom Green, Gigli (2003) starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, I Know Who Killed Me (2007) with Lindsay Lohan, and Swept Away (2002) with Madonna directed by Guy Ritchie.
