Hollywood: The Razzies unveiled their annual list of the year's most dreadful movies Saturday, with the critically slated musical Cats at the top -- or arguably rock bottom -- of the charts.

Among its nine unwanted nominations, Cats landed acting nods for Judi Dench, James Corden, and Rebel Wilson.

It received stunningly bad reviews. The Guardian called it a "dreadful hairball of woe," while for the Wall Street Journal it was "a confusing litter box of intentions".

Also racking up the nominations were Sylvester Stallone's disastrous latest Rambo sequel, and The Fanatic, a not-so-thrilling thriller starring John Travolta and directed by former Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst.

Formally known as the Golden Raspberry Awards, the Razzies are usually handed out the day before the Oscars, serving to mock the following night's self-congratulatory Tinseltown pageantry.

This year, with the Oscars unusually early and the entire award season curtailed, organizers settled for announcing the nominees instead.

The Razzies were first awarded in 1981 in a Los Angeles living room, the brainchild of UCLA film graduates and industry veterans who chose the raspberry -- a symbol of derision -- to "honour" the worst in Hollywood movies.
