Jen An pleased with Razzie nomination

Jennifer Aniston thinks it's "cute" that she's been nominated for the Razzie Redeemer Award.

The 45-year-old actress has been nominated for one of the tongue-in-cheek prizes four times in the past, although she's never won. They are handed out the day before the Oscars and celebrate the worst of the movie industry, with Transformers: Age of Extinction nominated for seven gongs in 2015.

A new category has been introduced this year, called the Razzie Redeemer Award. It offers those who have starred in Razzie-deemed 'bad movies' in the past the chance of redemption, with Jennifer in the running thanks to her much hyped role in Cake.

"That's so nice to get a nice Razzie. [Laughs.] I've never seen one, although I hear I have a bunch," she joked to AP via USA Today. "No, not on the mantle. We don't put those up, I just put the other ones up!"

Jennifer will vie against Ben Affleck, Mike Myers, Keanu Reeves and Kristen Stewart.

Cake saw Jennifer pick up a score of nominations, but last week she was missed out of the best actress Oscars line up. She isn't overly concerned about that though, as it just feels good to have won the role. Jennifer portrays Claire in the movie, a woman who becomes obsessed with the suicide of another member of her support group.

The star has always been synonymous with romantic comedies and light movies, so it was fun to try her hand at something so different.

"Well there's Oscar-worthy, it doesn't necessarily mean... and, you know, the truth is this movie hasn't even come out. I've been so lucky... my peers, with a SAG nomination, a Critics' [Choice Awards nomination]... I feel so lucky that any of that has even happened on a movie that we started shooting not even a year ago. I couldn't ask for more than that," she said.
