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, »

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 »

The 2017 People's Choice Awards aired Wednesday, with Joel McHale hosting the show, whose winners are decided by the public, via voting, instead of stuffy critics in elitist meetings. That might be why some there are some questionable outcomes. (We're not singling anyone out. We don't really need to.)
The night was still filled with some genuinely heartfelt speeches and truly funny sketches, along with your expected awards show mishaps like broken teleprompters and confusing acceptance speeches. So, in celebration of all the most wonderful and downright strangest things this year's PCAs had to offer, let's take a look at the night's best and most baffling moments.

Joel McHale Delivers Honest Monologue

The film, which Gillan also wrote and stars in, was previously called Tupperware Party but has reverted to working title Untitled Original Drama.
Gillan explained to Screen why she was forced to change the name.
“The title is currently in limbo”, she said. “Basically we had a title [Tupperware Party] and then realised that it was a brand name. That’s actually the name of the company that makes those tubs, so currently we’re deciding on a new title. I’m kind of digging the idea that we have to figure out a new title. I do believe that obstacles in creative situations often result in a better idea so I’m hoping that’s the case »
With production underway and its female stars already cast, Ocean’s Eight has been spending the last few weeks rounding out the supporting cast with actors like Damian Lewis (Billions, Homeland) and James Corden (The Late Late Show, Into the Woods). Now, we have word on another cast addition, and a couple Kardashian cameos.
According to Deadline, The Hobbit trilogy and Hannibal actor Richard Armitage has signed on in a secretive role. There are literally no details as to who he’ll be playing, or how big of a role he’ll have.
In other news, E! has the scoop that both Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner will cameo in the film. The models/reality TV stars shot a scene set at the New York Met Gala. They’ll reportedly be joined by Vogue editor in chief and fashion icon Anna Wintour. Their’s won’t be the only cameos »

Deadline has the scoop, confirming that Armitage, who is perhaps best known for his roles across Alice Through the Looking Glass and Peter Jackson’s Hobbit franchise, will play a mystery character in next year’s female-led crime caper. How exactly the actor’s newcomer fits into proceedings is up for question, though given the stacked ensemble cast, we’re inclined to believe the Brit will hold a small supporting role opposite Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett and their merry band of crooks.
Those two leading ladies will anchor Ocean’s Eight as a pair of master criminals, presiding over an ensemble that includes Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter. Their mission? Staging a heist that involves stealing an invaluable »

Grammy nominated and multi-platinum selling artist Ariana Grande and 10-time Grammy, Oscar-winning and multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter/ musician John Legend are set to perform the Oscar and Grammy-winning duet "Beauty and the Beast" as the title track for Disney's upcoming soundtrack to the live-action film adaptation Beauty and the Beast. The song will also be featured in the film.
The enchanting ballad, originally performed by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson featuring eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken's beautiful melody and two-time Oscar-winner Howard Ashman's unforgettable lyrics, received an Academy Award, Golden Globe and Grammy Award, among other accolades, upon its release in 1991.
The new rendition of the classic song is produced by Grammy-winning veteran Ron Fair, whose music career spans 37 years as a major-label record company leader and accomplished producer, arranger, recording engineer and musical director. Fair was brought in to produce by Disney's president of Music & Soundtracks, Mitchell Leib, »
While most late-night personalities let their film and TV careers fall by the wayside once they get their hosting gig, James Corden has been an exception to that trend. Despite churning out well over a hundred episodes of The Late Late Show every year, the actor has still managed to take on roles in such past and future projects as Trolls, The Emoji Movie and Peter Rabbit. Now, however, you can add Ocean’s Eight to the list, as Deadline reports that he has joined the cast of the all-female Gary Ross-directed heist comedy.
In the film, which is a spin-off of Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s trilogy, Corden will play an insurance investigator “who grows suspicious” of the group of ladies attempting to pull off a massive heist; like most of his other film appearances, it will be a supporting role.

Does Will Smith have the ears to pull it off? That's the first response we have to the news that the former Fresh Prince will be starring in Disney's live-action remake of Dumbo. Deadline has the exclusive but no details, not even what sort of character Smith would play in the movie. For all we know, he could at least be the voice of the CG elephant. Chances are, however, he'll be on screen in some sort of human role. Dumbo is being helmed by Tim Burton, who previously directed Disney's live-action version of Alice in Wonderland and produced the sequel, Alice Through the Looking Glass. Both movies featured actors distorted in ways to fit their characters. The more recent live-action remake hit, The Jungle Book, also made some...
