Razzie Awards Razz ‘Batman v Superman,’ ‘Zoolander,’ & ‘Dirty Grandpa’ — Nominations

2016 was so "overfull of bad movies" the awards had to expand each category to include six nominees.

“Zoolander 2”

Dishonoring the worst achievements in film every year, the 37th Annual Razzie Awards announced their nominations today, with “Zoolander No. 2” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” leading the pack. The organization called one a “15-years-too-late sequel,” and the other a “WTF comic book battle-royale.”

Noting that “the crop of cinematic crap in 2016 was so extensive,” the Razzie’s expanded each of the nine categories to include six nominees rather than the usual five. Also wracking up significant digs were “Dirty Grandpa,” “Gods of Egypt,” “Hillary’s America,” and “Independence Day: Resurgence.”

Some surprises this year include nominations for Shailene Woodley and Naomi Watts for their roles in the “Divergent” series, alongside Tyler Perry in the worst actress category for “Boo! A Madea Halloween.” Perry and “That Same Old Worn Out Wig” also appeared in the Worst Screen Combo category, as did “The Entire Cast of Once Respected Actors” in “Collateral Beauty.” (That would include Dame Helen Mirren).

The “winners” will be announced on Saturday, February 25th, the day before the Academy Awards. Check out the full list of nominations below.
