Tyler Perry is nominated among the worst achievements in film for 2019 but the history-making Hollywood mogul is not in bad company.

A Madea Family Funeral garnered eight nods from the Golden Raspberry Foundation, which announced its picks for the Razzie Awards—celebrating what it calls the worst films the film industry had to offer last year.

Perry wrote, produced, directed and played four roles in the film, which was selected to compete for Worst Picture; Worst Screenplay; Worst Actress; Worst Screen Combo; Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel; and two Worst Supporting Actor nominations.

Cassi Davis, who played Aunt Bam in the film, was nominated for Worst Supporting Actress. The School Daze alum is competing against Dame Judi Dench, Jessica Chastain, Rebel Wilson and Fenessa Pineda for the award.

The CATastrophic Cats, which the Razzie organizers described as a “widely derided feline flop,” also scored eight nominations, alongside Sylvester Stallone’s audacious Rambo sequel, Deadline reported.

Usually announced the day before the Oscars, the Razzie Awards were rescheduled this year due to the Oscars ceremony being moved up.

The actual ceremony will be announced at a later date.

Since 1980, UCLA film graduates and film industry veterans presented the satirical ceremony as a parody of the Academy Awards.

Through the years, some of Hollywood’s biggest names have been nominated and awarded for the humorous honor, including Will Smith (who was nominated this year for his work as Genie in Aladdin), Barbara Streisand (Yentl), Halle Berry (Catwoman), Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (Doom), Whoopi Goldberg (The Telephone), Al Pacino (Revolution) and Beyoncé (Obsessed).
