Batman v. Superman, Zoolander 2 lead Razzie nominations

01.23.2017

It's officially awards season, and tomorrow morning we will get the nominations for the creme de la creme of Hollywood self-congratulating, the Oscars. But before then we have to recognize the worst of the worst, and the Golden Raspberry (or Razzies) awards have been doing a bang-up job doing that for 37 years. Known as the "Oscars of bad movies", the awards will (dis)honor the worst movies of the year, and we have the nominees right here. Leading the charge is ZOOLANDER 2 with nine nominations, while BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE brings up the rear with eight. The site made mention that this year had so many bad movies that they had to up it to six nominees per category from five, with other notable entries being DIRTY GRANDPA, INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE and GODS OF EGYPT, with a few for SUICIDE SQUAD.

Desperate for Attention

They always intentionally pick some movies that were both popular and divisive so that they get attention.

By "popular" you mean "financially successful"? Because that doesn't mean a movie is good.

Lol...

Worst Actor:
Dinesh DíSouza [as Himself] - HILLARY'S AMERICA: THE SECRET HISTORY OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY

That's pretty bad if you are getting nominated a Razzie for being yourself. lol

As usual

the Razzies aren't about the worst movies of the year but what's cool to hate on and what will get their pointless awards show the most attention.

Man talk about being delusional, the razzies nailed it this year. Batman vs superman was an ABOMINATION (no pun intended) sure it wasnt as bad as lets say brothers grimsby but according to scale, bvs failed on a much larger platform. Man of steel was the worst letdown of what could have been a great intro to superman, CGI Snyder once again sacrifices story for visual delight, i mean you gotta admit snyder is not the right man to be heading DC, his talents, and this is a compliment, lends itself

I recently watched Unbreakable again and i remember wishing that man of steel would ground itself and show superman being extraordinary in ordinary situations rather than being extraordinary in extraordinary situations, which is what we got was an intergalactic war right off the bat, didnt need to do that so soon, it dilutes everything after that. Ben affleck i also agree didnt really bring anything to the table, granted the character called for bulky and broody, but theirs something very forgettable about this man.

The problem is that the Razzies have never claimed to be about the most disappointing movies of the year, but the worst. There IS a difference. They were largely just picking popular movies so that they get attention.

No nominations for Yoga Hosers or The Brothers Grimsby?

Of course not! Only few people had seen the REAL worst movies of the year, so why highlight them, right, Razzies? Right?!

Is it just me or are the Razzies wierdly political. Yes Hillary's America was near unwatchable, but it seems like these right wing propaganda films ned up on here quite a bit. There have to be left wing equivilents that are just as bad sometime right?

You're just now realizing that Hollywood has a political bias. Yes, the left had an equivalent film this year from Michael Moore, and was just as bad.

Ben affleck should get an oscar for playing the best Batman/bruce wayne so far.
You can say what you want about bvs but his performance and that of Cavill were perfect. Its not Cavill's fault he has to play an angry Superman.

By no means a perfect movie, but a handful of dialogue in BvS was far superior than most superhero movies. The Martha jab was bad, yes, but when Batman is explaining to Superman what it means to be brave? Holy shit... leaps and bounds better writing than anything I've heard in ANY of those other movies.

No problem with the films nominated even though I liked some one or two of them.
But no nomination for GHOSTBUSTERS in ANY category?
Sorry Razzies, you've got an agenda and it ain't looking at bad movies.

Agree completley. As much as I hate to say it's likley the necessity that people feel to defend the movie simply because it was female driven.

12/38* of my ballot votes made it, while the one I voted for in the Worst Screen Combo category wasn't nominated. I must say I'm very disappointed with the nominations. There are movies and performances that were considered by most people either not so bad or even not bad at all**. Not the majority but, for an award as important as the Razzies, it's a large percentage. The irony is that, this year, the number of nominees was expanded in all categories.

*I only chose 3 in Worst Supporting

**Ben Affleck, Nicolas Cage, Will Ferrell, Owen Wilson, Aubrey Plaza and Sela Ward. And I still don't get how a documentary can be nominated for Worst Screenplay.

Ha!

Lost all credibility when they don't nominate Suicide Squad and do nominate Batman v Superman.

Let alone not nominating things like Keeping Up with the Joneses or Allegiant or Warcraft or Alice

Most of those movies ARE nominated. Not for Worst Picture, but something is something.

Why do I get the feeling that the people that do the Razzers, don't actually watch movies?

Its kind of getting old fast..

To think is cool hating on BvS its kind of getting old really fast! Was it disappointing to some!? Yes.. devisive!? Yes.. but it was the same style and story telling Snyder was applauded for 300 and Watchmen among us geeks. It doesnt belong to be among those really shitty movies..

No it does not. I can probably name 10 movies that deserve to be on the worst picture list before Batman v Superman.

In fact, I pretty much agree with Rolling Stones list

No, it doesn't. BvS is far closer to a world we live in than a Marvel movie. Apart from the jokes, I don't recall much from Marvel. That says something.

Razzies are still a thing? Affleck was the best thing about BvS how is he nominated for worst actor?
