On the eve of Oscar Sunday, a night that celebrates the best of cinema, the nominations for the 40th Golden Raspberry Awards have been announced. Unlike the Academy Awards and the precursors throughout the season, the Razzies celebrate the worst in cinema, with Tom Hooper’s “Cats” expectedly leading the way with eight nominations.

“Cats” doesn’t lead the pack by itself however – both “Rambo: Last Blood” and “A Madea Made Funeral” also find themselves with eight nominations each, with the latter the biggest threat to “Cats” in the Worst Picture category.

A whole host of Academy Award winners and nominees find themselves in contention throughout the four acting categories this year. Among them, Matthew McConaughey is up for Worst Actor for his performance in “Serenity,” whilst he competes against former Oscar nominees James Franco, Sylvester Stallone and John Travolta.

Over on the female side, Anne Hathaway finds herself nominated in Worst Actress for two different performances and Jessica Chastain is up for Worst Supporting Actress line-up for her role in “Dark Phoenix.” She is unlikely to triumph over “Cats” stars Rebel Wilson and Judi Dench however.

Academy Award winner Hooper (“The King’s Speech”) expectedly finds himself in the Worst Director line-up for “Cats,” competing against Fred Durst, Adrian Grunberg, Neil Marshall and Franco, the latter of whom was already cited in the Worst Actor category.
