The nominations for the Razzies – the ceremony that awards the worst films of the year – have been announced.

Leading this year’s pack are Dolittle, starring Robert Downey Jr, and controversial Netflix release 365 Days, which both received six nods.

Blumhouse horror film Fantasy Island and Sia’s Music, following a teenager with autism, followed close behind with five and four nominations, respectively.

Nominated actors include Adam Sandler for his role in Hubie Halloween and Kristen Wiig for her villainous role in Wonder Woman 1984.

In a rare twist, Hillbilly Elegy star Glenn Close was nominated for Worst Supporting Actor – the same role for which she is expected to receive a Best Actress Oscar nomination on Monday (15 March).
