(Newser) – Mike Myers’ The Love Guru looks poised to dominate the Razzie Awards this year, the Los Angeles Times reports, with the film nabbing seven nominations, including worst picture. Myers specifically has nominations for writing, producing and acting. But Myers was bettered on personal Razzie noms by Paris Hilton, who’s got four between The Hottie and The Nottie and Repo: The Genetic Opera.

This year features a first for the Razzies: a dual worst-picture nomination for Disaster Movie and Meet the Spartans. The two can be counted as one because they are “two films from the same two talent-free writer/directors, both featuring essentially the same cast,” a Razzies press release said. The “winners” will be announced at a ceremony Feb. 21. (Read more Razzies stories.)
