"Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones" also received seven nominations, among them worst picture and director for George Lucas, creator of the sci-fi saga.

The other worst picture contenders are Eddie Murphy's sci-fi comedy "The Adventures of Pluto Nash" and Roberto Benigni's live-action version of "Pinocchio."

Nominees for the 23rd annual Razzies, organized by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation, were announced Monday, a day before Oscar nominations. Razzie "winners" will be announced March 22, the eve of the Oscar ceremony.

Madonna previously received four worst actress Razzies for such movies as "Shanghai Surprise" and "Who's That Girl?"
