LOS ANGELES – Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen made a fortune. Land of the Lost tanked.

Both films are equal earners at the Razzies, though, grabbing seven nominations each on Monday, including worst picture of 2009 and worst-acting slots for Will Ferrell and Megan Fox.

Other worst-picture nominees: Sandra Bullock’s romance All About Steve, the action tale G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra and the Robin Williams-John Travolta comedy Old Dogs.

Bullock earned a worst-actress nomination for All About Steve. She’s expected to score an Academy Award nomination Tuesday for her hit drama The Blind Side.

“She could be the first person ever to win a Razzie and an Oscar in the same weekend,” said John Wilson, founder of the Golden Raspberry Awards, now in their 30th year of singling out Hollywood’s low points. Winners will be announced March 6, the night before the Oscars.

Razzie voters also are making worst-of-the-decade picks. The worst-picture nominees are Travolta’s Battlefield Earth, Tom Green’s Freddy Got Fingered, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez’s Gigli, Lindsay Lohan’s I Know Who Killed Me and Madonna’s Swept Away.

Affleck and Travolta are up for worst actor of the decade, along with Eddie Murphy, Mike Myers and Rob Schneider. Lohan, Lopez and Madonna are nominated for the decade’s worst actress, along with Mariah Carey and Paris Hilton.

Wilson said the worst-actress category probably would come down to Hilton and Lohan, while “Eddie Murphy I would guess would be pretty hard to beat as worst actor of the decade.”

Razzie 2009 nominees also include Miley Cyrus as worst actress and her dad, Billy Ray, as worst supporting actor for “Hannah Montana: The Movie.”

For worst actress, Bullock, Cyrus and Fox are up against Beyonce Knowles for Obsessed.
