Razzie Awards Winners List 2017: ‘Batman v Superman’ and ‘Hillary’s America’ Dominate as Year’s Worst

The celebration also honored "Zoolander 2" and Mel Gibson.

Awards season finally comes to an end tomorrow night with the 89th Academy Awards, and the 37th Golden Raspberry Awards (nicknamed the Razzies) are honoring the very worst films of 2016. It turns out that it was such a horrific year at multiplexes that the categories were expanded to include six nominees.

Ben Stiller’s critically reviled “Zoolander 2” had the most nominations of the year, competing in nine categories, including the coveted Worst Picture. Other multiple nominees included “Dirty Grandpa” (six nominations), “Independence Day: Resurgence” (five nominations) and “Alice Through the Looking Glass” (three nominations). But two films took home the majority of the dubious honors, with the bloated mashup of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and lazy propaganda of “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” “winning” all but one of the top dishonors.
