Even the Razzies got political at the 2017 awards, recognizing the “worst in film.”
The Golden Raspberry Awards, nicknamed the “Razzies” crowned “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” the worst picture of the year on Saturday, the day before the Academy Awards. The critically drubbed political documentary, which earned a staggering 4% on Rotten Tomatoes, also swept the worst actor, worst actress and worst director categories.
As to not be entirely overlooked, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” also took home four awards for worst supporting actor, screenplay, screen combo and, finally, worst prequel, remake, rip-off or sequel.
The Worst Films of 2016
Revel in the full list of 2017 nominees below with the winners denoted in bold:

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.
Below are all of this year’s Razzie nominees. »

Leave it to PhotoShop genie BossLogic to produce a mock-up of Kerry Washington as Domino. On the heels of yesterday’s Deadpool 2 casting rumor, the prolific concept artist has published a new piece of fan art that imagines Washington, who is purportedly in talks for the villainous part after Sienna Miller (The Lost City of Z) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw dropped out of the race, as the badass Neena Thurman.
Per Screen Rant, this is by no means BossLogic’s first rodeo in the superhero genre, after envisioning what Megan Fox would look like as Poison Ivy in Gotham City Sirens. Now, the spotlight has shifted over to Deadpool 2 and, specifically, the currently vacant role of Domino. We know that Thurman is all set to feature in David Leitch’s follow-up alongside long-time love interest Cable – Pierce Brosnan is the latest (and final?) candidate to emerge for that one »

Asa Butterfield and Britt Robertson play star-crossed lovers in The Space Between Us, a sci-fi romance which, shockingly, is not an adaptation of a novel by Nicholas Sparks or Stephenie Meyer. It's still full of the sort of contrivances that usually get explained away by some well-read fan as being faithful to the source material, but it comes from an original screenplay. However, when you realise that the screenplay was written by Allan Loeb, author of last year's feel-bad turkey Collateral Beauty, you might start to understand why it's utter nonsense.
In the not-too-distant future, 16-year-old Gardner Elliot (Butterfield) is the first human born on Mars. Raised by scientists and kept secret from the people of Earth by aerospace CEO Nathaniel Shepard (Gary Oldman), Gardner rails against his sheltered life and longs to »
A few days ago The Magnificent Seven and The Girl on the Train’s Haley Bennett sparked speculation that she could be in line to join Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn as Catwoman in Gotham City Sirens with some posts on social media, and now Game of Thrones star Lena Headey has seemingly expressed her interest in swapping Westeros for the DC Extended Universe with a post on Twitter…

Headey, who will return as Queen Cersei in Game of Thrones season seven this summer, does has previous comic book movie experience with her roles in 300 and Dredd, and while she’s probably a little older than most would expect for Selina Kyle, it would make sense seeing as the Dceu has already opted for an older Batman in Ben Affleck.
Gotham City Sirens is set »
- Gary Collinson
Gotham City Sirens is expected to revolve around Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, and Catwoman, but as of right now, we have no idea who's playing the latter two characters. Megan Fox has been rumoured for Ivy, but we've heard nothing concrete on who's being eyed for Selina Kyle. However, a number of actresses have put their names forward with the latest being Game of Thrones star Lena Headey. With the DC Films Universe's Batman older than the rest of the world's heroes, it makes sense that Catwoman would also not be a twenty-something. That makes Headey perfect for the role, while she also looks perfect for the part and is without a doubt more than talented enough to deliver a memorable take on the character. She also has comic book movie experience with 300 and Dredd. Do you think Headey would be a good choice for Catwoman? Let us know in the comments section! »

More often than you might think, scenes that appear in movie trailer don’t turn up in the finished film. This can leave trailer-loving audience members confused as the credits roll, wondering if they dropped off and missed something important.

A couple of massive movies have done this recently, and the internet has been quick to fill in the blanks with speculation. Fingers have been pointed at tinkering studio bigwigs and extensive reshoots, when the reality is often a little less dramatic: filmmakers always chop some footage in the edit, and they rarely have much involvement in the trailers. »
In addition to Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn, it has been made known that David Ayer would like to add both Poison Ivy and Catwoman into the mix for his Suicide Squad spin-off titled Gotham City Sirens.
Rumors circulated that Megan Fox might be in talks to play Poison Ivy, but for something more concrete here are some new Instagram photos from Haley Bennett (The Girl on the Train) where she is seemingly teasing a future role as Catwoman. One picture is a random image of Catwoman herself, while another is of Haley rocking a haircut similar to Selina Kyle. Check out both posts below.
Let us know below in the comments if you think Haley Bennett would make a good fit for Catwoman!

One could argue that we still really haven’t had a great portrayal of Catwoman on the big screen. Halle Berry’s time with the iconic character is best forgotten, and while Michelle Pfeiffer and Anne Hathaway both did some solid work, each of their performances had definite issues. Still, DC isn’t giving up on Selina Kyle and will attempt, once again, to bring her to life in Gotham City Sirens.
For those who don’t know, the David Ayer-helmed spinoff is reportedly set to feature Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn. While Margot Robbie will return to reprise her role as the latter, after impressing in Suicide Squad, the other two characters haven’t been cast yet.
- Josh Wilding
Back in December, Warner Bros. confirmed that Margot Robbie will reprise her Harley Quinn role from Suicide Squad in a new superhero spin-off Gotham City Sirens, with Suicide Squad director David Ayer returning to the helm. The movie will also feature other iconic DC Comics characters such as Poison Ivy and Catwoman, although those characters have not yet been cast. Since then, there have been no shortage of casting rumors for these coveted roles, and this weekend another potential candidate emerged, Haley Bennett, who teased her potential casting as Catwoman on social media.
The actress took to her Instagram recently to reveal a photo from the DC Comics of Catwoman, leading fans to speculate if she has been cast in this role or not. The actress wouldn't address the issue any further on social media, and it remains unclear when the studio will cast the Catwoman and Poison Ivy roles. »
Viewers of Super Bowl LI understand from the outset that they’ll see 60 or more high-caliber TV commercials, all part of the annual ritual of watching the game. What many fail to realize each year is that they will also see a bevy of “promos” for various TV shows to which the network broadcasting the game hopes to draw attention. Fox expects to air about 30 promos across its Super Bowl broadcast, pre-game and post-game coverage, with about ten of them slated to air in the game itself.
Just like Budweiser and Snickers, networks have something to sell during the Super Bowl, too. Promos typically make up 15% of the Super Bowl’s ad time, according to Kantar, a »

Awards season is here and in full swing, but we can’t always celebrate the great and wonderful, the downright awful needs a whole lot of loving too. That comes in the form of the 37th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards or better known to the masses, The Razzies.
Just announced for this year’s Razzies is the extensive list of nominees of crap cinema-goers had to endure throughout 2016 and hell did we have some corkers? To most, the leading contenders should be of no real surprise, leading the pack is Zoolander No. 2 with a staggering 9 nominations followed closely with the film that made sad Affleck into an internet sensation, Batman v Superman with 8 nominations seeing both nominated in Worst Picture and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel. Other films with an honourable mention in the worst picture category include Dirty Grandpa and Independence Day: Resurgence.

Award season is all about recognizing the best films from the past year, but there is one show that actually does the complete opposite. The Razzies honor the worst in film, so the fewer nominations a film gets, the better it must be. While movies like Suicide Squad and Allegiant only got a little bit of flak, others weren't as lucky. In fact, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice scored six nominations for the 37th annual Golden Raspberry Awards. Take a look at the rest of the nominees, and stay tuned for the winners to be announced on Feb. 25, the night before the Oscars. Worst Picture Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Dirty Grandpa Gods of Egypt Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party Independence Day: Resurgence Zoolander No. 2 Worst Actor Ben Affleck, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Gerard Butler, Gods of Egypt and London Has Fallen Henry Cavill, »

A version of this article originally appeared on ew.com.
One day before Hollywood honors the best films of 2016 by unveiling the Oscar nominations, the Razzies have revealed its contenders for the year’s worst.
Zoolander No. 2 has the dubious honor of earning the most nominations this time around, with a total of 9 — 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.
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 »

As The Academy finalizes its selection ahead of Tuesday’s grand announcement – expect 2017’s Oscar nominations to be online early tomorrow, January 24 – the nominees for this year’s Annual Golden Raspberry Award (Aka the Razzies) are in, and it’s Zoolander 2 that has the ‘honor’ of leading the pack with nine nominations in total.
Ben Stiller’s “15-years-too-late sequel” has found its name in the mix for Worst Picture, Worst Actor and Worst Director for Ben Stiller, along with Worst Supporting Actress for Kristen Wiig. It gets worse, too, as Zoolander 2‘s ensemble cast – namely Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson – both got the nod for Worst Supporting Actor.
Elsewhere on the docket, the Razzies selected Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice for a handful of ‘awards,’ most notably Worst Picture and two nominations in the Worst Actor category for Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel and Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader, »

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Zoolander 2 lead the nominees for the 37th annual Golden Raspberry Awards ("The Razzies"), which highlights the "worst achievements in film."
