Rudy Giuliani’s questionable appearance in “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” has garnered him a couple of 2021 Razzie nominations.

On Friday, the 41st annual Golden Raspberry Awards, which honors to the year’s least best movies, unveiled their nominations and the former New York City mayor received two nods in the Worst Supporting Actor and Worst Screen Combo category.

In the acclaimed Sacha Baron Cohen flick, the Trump consigliere is featured in a hidden camera scene seemingly fondling himself in front of a woman he was apparently trying to seduce in a Manhattan hotel room this past summer.

The film makes it clear that the 76-year-old political figure thought the much younger woman was a conservative journalist interviewing him for a show.

Other notables that drew Razzie attention was the ill-fated Robert Downey Jr. remake “Dolittle,” Sia’s “Music,” and “My Pillow” owner Mike Lindell’s stolen election documentary “Absolute Proof.”

Bruce Willis scored three nominations for three different films in the same category.

Oscar winner Anne Hathaway and Katie Holmes also were nominated twice for two different films in the Worst Actress category.

The Razzies also awarded a “Special Governors’ Trophy” to the year 2020 as “The Worst Calendar Year EVER.”

The reimagined “Fantasy Island” movie and Adam Sandler’s Netflix comedy “Hubie Halloween” also struck out this year among Razzie voters.

Usually announced the day before the Academy Awards, the Razzie Awards were rescheduled this year — like every other awards ceremony — due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since 1980, under the shingle of The Golden Raspberry Foundation, UCLA film graduates and film industry veterans present the satirical ceremony as a parody of the Academy Awards.

This year’s winners will be unveiled April 24.

Although he’s in the ‘worst’ category, Giuliani isn’t in such bad company.

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

Last year, billionaire Hollywood kingpin Tyler Perry scored eight nominations for the much-maligned comedy “A Madea Family Funeral.”

The star-studded, box office bomb “Cats,” which Razzie organizers described as a “widely derided feline flop,” also scored eight nominations, alongside Sylvester Stallone’s audacious “Rambo” sequel,
