The nominations for the 39th annual Razzies – the ceremony that awards the worst films of the year – have been announced.

Leading this year’s pack is Gotti, in which John Travolta stars as mobster John Gotti, along with Brian Henson’s The Happytime Murders, Helen Mirren-starring horror film Winchester, and Holmes & Watson, which prompted mass walkouts upon its release in December 2018.

Nominated actors include Travolta, Bruce Willis (Death Wish) and Melissa McCarthy for her roles in The Happytime Murders and Life of the Party. Ironically, McCarthy is also being touted for an Oscar nomination in the best actress category for her role in Marielle Heller’s Can You Ever Forgive Me?.

Even Donald Trump has been nominated thanks to the use of archival footage in documentaries Fahrenheit 11/9 and Death of a Nation.

The 2019 Razzie Awards will take place on 23 February, the night before the Oscars.
