LOS ANGELES - John Travolta's mob movie flop "Gotti" and President Donald Trump were nominated on Monday for the Razzie Awards for the worst films of 2018 after a year that organizers called full of disasters - both on and off screen.
The new Sherlock Holmes comedy "Holmes & Watson" garnered six mentions, including for its stars Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, who were cited for "trashing two of literature's most beloved characters."
The tongue-in-cheek Razzies, created in 1980, serve as an antidote to Hollywood's Oscars ceremony. Nominees were announced a day before Tuesday's Academy Awards nominations - the highest honors in the movie industry.
"With a stumbling stock market, a possible impending Presidential impeachment, raging wild fires, devastating floods, mass shootings and a litany of plagues that reached near Biblical proportions, 2018 was a year overfull with disasters," Razzie founder John Wilson said in a statement.
"And then there were last year's movies," he quipped.
