Familiar names Tyler Perry, Adam Sandler and M. Night Shyamalan dominated the nominees for  the 2014 Razzies, the annual anti-awards recognizing the worst to come out of Hollywood, as determined by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation's 750 voters, which were announced Wednesday morning. 

Among those receiving nods for the 2013's worst were some repeat winners, including Perry, Halle Berry and Sandler, along with a few divas and leading men, including Johnny Depp, Sly Stallone and Naomi Watts.

Once again, Adam Sandler racked up the lion's share of award nominations, including eight for his sequel to "Grown-Ups." 

"Movie 43," honored as "the 'Citizen Kane' of awful" by the Chicago Sun-Times, received a hefty set of nominations, along with M. Night Shyamalan's "After Earth," which the Tulsa World's reviewer wrote "made me believe I'd been transported to a Hollywood studio backlot, where Smith family movies are made."
