2017 Razzies Nominations: ZOOLANDER 2 and BATMAN V SUPERMAN Lead Among Worst of 2016

2017-razzie-awards-nominations-batman-v-superman-zoolander-2

If you've had enough of 2016's best films, it's time to see about rewarding the worst. "Zoolander No. 2" and "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" lead the 37th Annual Razzie Awards with nine and eight nods, respectively, including the big ones: Worst Picture, Director and Screenplay. The films also received nominations in the acting categories for Ben Stiller, Kristen Wiig, Will Ferrell, Owen Wilson, Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill.

Other contenders for the infamous awards include "Dirty Grandpa", "Alice Through the Looking Glass", "Independence Day: Resurgence", "Gods of Egypt", and "Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party". The latter, a documentary, is an odd choice for the Razzies, but I suppose the political tensions and anti-Trump sentiments in Hollywood are reflected in this inclusion.

The Razzies expanded their Worst Picture category from five to six contenders this year. They also haven't announced any nominees for the Razzie's recent category, the Razzie Redeemer Award, first introduced in 2014. It's unclear whether the category has been excluded, or if they're having a hard time finding any redeeming performances for the past year. Either way, it would be a shame to lose it. Previous winners of the Redeemer Award were Ben Affleck for "Gone Girl" and "Argo" in 2015, and Sylvester Stallone for "Creed" in 2016.

The winners of the 2017 Razzie Awards will be announced on February 25th.

Read the full list of Razzie nominees after the jump.
