Several sci-fi movies got the dubious honor of getting nominated for
"Razzie Awards,"
which annually recognize the worst in the previous year's cinema. The nominations were announced today, and the awards will be unveiled in ceremonies on the eve of the Academy Awards, Feb. 21, in Hollywood.

The Worst Picture nominees include Disaster Movie, Meet the Spartans, The Happening, The Hottie and the Nottie, In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale and The Love Guru.

Dungeon Siege's director, Uwe Boll, meanwhile, has been selected to receive the Worst Career Achievement Razzie.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull will be "honored" with an award for worst prequel, remake, rip-off or sequel. A full list of nominees can be found here.
