Lady Gaga has been nominated in the Worst Suppoting Actress category at this year's Golden Raspberry, or Razzie, awards.

The 34th annual Razzies take place on March 1, the night before the Oscars, and serve to highlight the very worst performers, directors and films of the previous year. Gaga has earned the nomination for her brief appearance in Machete Kills, the sequel to Robert Rodriguez's 2010 film Machete, starring Danny Trejo.

Gaga appears as one of the forms of a shapeshifting assassin. She's nominated alongside Salma Hayek, Katherine Heigl, Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan. She's not the only singer to be nominated for a Razzie. Former Disney star Selena Gomez is up for Worst Actress for her performance in Getaway, which also stars Ethan Hawke and Jon Voight. Gomez is up against Lindsay Lohan, Naomi Watts, Tyler Perry and Halle Berry, who famously turned up to the Razzie ceremony in 2005 to accept her Worst Actress award for 'Catwoman'.

Berry is among a small group of actors and directors who have attended the ceremony to pick up their prizes. In 2002, Tom Green, who won a number of awards, had to be dragged from the stage for refusing to stop playing the harmonica, while in 2010, Sandra Bullock won Worst Actress for 'All About Steve', while the following night won Best Actress at the Oscars for her role in 'The Blind Side'.
