It’s not quite the typical award season, but nominations for the 2014 edition of the Razzies have been announced, and sci-fi fare is well represented among the worst of the worst.

The list includes a few obvious repeat offenders — i.e. Michael Bay’s explosion-tastic Transformers franchise — as well as a few newcomers, such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and I, Frankenstein. The swords-and-sandals flop Legend of Hercules (the one not starring the Rock) is also up for more than a few categories.

As far as the genre entries are concerned, there aren’t a ton of surprises here. Nominations for “Worst Picture” include Transcendence, The Legend of Hercules, A Haunted House 2, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Left Behind, Transformers: Age of Extinction and I, Frankenstein. On top of that, The Legend of Hercules, A Haunted House 2, Transformers: Age of Extinction, I, Frankenstein and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are all up for “Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel.”
