On the Razzies' hit list this year? Puppets, Sherlocks, the Mob and Donald Trump.
There's also a few ignominious honours for Australian filmmaking duo The Spierig Brothers.
Helen Mirren in Winchester.
Gotti, Happytime, Holmes and Robin Hood are the other films up for worst picture.
Among the other noteworthy nominations: Melissa McCarthy, who's in the running for a best actress Oscar nomination with Can You Ever Forgive Me?, was nominated for worst actress for Happytime Murders and Life of the Party, and President Donald Trump (Death of a Nation and Fahrenheit 11/9) is in the worst actor category with Travolta, Ferrell, Johnny Depp (Sherlock Gnomes) and Bruce Willis (Death Wish).
Trump and "his self-perpetuating pettiness" are also up for the Razzies' worst screen combo award.
The US president actually already has a Razzie to his name: he won the best supporting actor prize for 1991's Ghosts Can't Do It, in which he played himself opposite Bo Derek.

The tongue-in-cheek Razzies, created in 1980, serve as an antidote to Hollywood's Oscars ceremony.
"With a stumbling stock market, a possible impending presidential impeachment, raging wild fires, devastating floods, mass shootings and a litany of plagues that reached near Biblical proportions, 2018 was a year overfull with disasters," Razzie founder John Wilson said.
