The 2017 Razzie Nominations Are In, ‘Batman v. Superman’ Gets Straight Sh*t On

Just one day before the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announces the nominees for the 2017 Oscars, the Razzies, which award the worst films of the year, have released their nominations.

Leading the way with the most Razzie nominations is Zoolander No. 2 with a total of nine — including Worst Picture, Worst Actor, and Worst Director for Ben Stiller, Worst Supporting Actress for Kristen Wiig, and Worst Supporting Actor for both Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice comes in a close second with eight nominations, including Worst Picture, two Worst Actor noms for Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, Worst Supporting Actor for Jesse Eisenberg (Seriously, dude found a way to ruin Lex Luthor. How is that even possible?), and worst director for Zack Snyder. As a MASSIVE Batman fan, I’m delighted to see Zack Snyder and his movie being raked over the coals. How you make such a bad version of the world’s two greatest superheroes takes an entirely unprecedented level of ineptitude.

2017 was such a big year for bad filmmaking that the Razzies had to expand the number of nominees from five to six in each of its nine categories.

The winners will be announced February 25, the day before the Oscars are handed out.
