While films like 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle celebrate Oscar nominations today, some of the year's biggest flops will have the opportunity to compete for awards as well. The nominees for the 34th Annual Razzie Awards have been announced, with Grown Ups 2 and After Earth leading the way.

The Razzies recognize the worst of the worst films of the year, with categories like Worst Picture, Worst Actor and Worst Prequel, Sequel, Rip-off or Remake. Grown Ups 2, starring Adam Sandler and Chris Rock, has the distinction of earning eight nominations, one in every category except Worst Actress.

Following closely behind with six nominations is After Earth, Will Smith's failed sci-fi epic that also starred his son Jaden Smith. Tied with After Earth are Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas and star-studded comedy Movie 43.

Halle Berry
has the distinction of two nominations for Worst Actress for both The Call and Movie 43. The actress, who previously won a Razzie Award for Catwoman in 2005, famously accepted her statue in person while holding her Oscar for Monster's Ball.

Other nominees include Kim Kardashian for Tyler Perry's Temptation (her film debut, making her one-for-one in Razzie nominations), Chris Brown for Battle of the Year and Lady Gaga for Machete Kills.
