We can't say we're surprised.

Robert Downey Jr., who literally yanks things out of an ailing CGI dragon's butt in family movie "Dolittle," is nominated for worst actor at this year's Golden Raspberry Awards. The 41st annual awards, better known as the Razzies, honor what the group deems the most abysmal films and performances that Hollywood has to offer.

"Dolittle," which has a rancid 14% from critics on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, leads this year's nominations with six, including worst picture, worst remake, worst screenplay, worst director (Stephen Gaghan), and worst screen combo (for Downey and his Utterly Unconvincing "Welsh" Accent).

Tying "Doolittle" with six nominations is "365 Days," a Polish spin on "Fifty Shades of Grey" that landed on Netflix last summer and drew backlash for its depictions of kidnapping and predatory behavior. Sia's similarly controversial "Music" and divisive DC sequel "Wonder Woman 1984" also earned multiple nominations apiece.

The Razzies are voted on by 1,090 members from the U.S. and abroad. This year's "winners" will be unveiled April 24, the night before the Academy Awards.
