It’s the day before the Oscars, which means its time for the Razzies to celebrate the very worst that Hollywood had to offer from the past twelve months.
Warner Bros.’ Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice took a beating with four awards – Worst Supporting Actor (Jesse Eisenberg), Worst Prequel, Remake, Ripoff or Sequel, Worst Screenplay and Worst Screen Combo (Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill).
Tying Batman v Superman with four awards was the political documentary Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party which was named Worst Picture, along with Worst Director (Dinesh D’Souza, Bruce Schooley), Worst Actor (Dinesh D’Souza) and Worst Actress (Becky Turner). Meanwhile, Kristen Wiig was named Worst Supporting Actress for Zoolander 2.

It’s been an exciting awards season this year, but it’ll all come to an end tomorrow night when the 89th Academy Awards take place. La La Land is expected to walk away victorious in most categories and analysts aren’t predicting too many upsets or surprises. But the Oscars aren’t the only big awards ceremony taking place this weekend, as the 37th Golden Raspberry Awards, or Razzies for short, have just concluded and the results are now in.
There were certainly more than a handful of horrible, awful, waste of time films to release in 2016, but the biggest offenders here seem to be Dirty Grandpa, Zoolander 2, Hilary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party and Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Having that last one show »

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.

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. »

At this point, who doesn’t want to join the Marvel Cinematc Universe? Nearly every actor and their brother are either already in the ongoing massive franchise, in some capacity or another, or vying to get into it. Donnie Yen finds himself in the latter category, and alongside his loyal fans, he’s campaigning to work his way into the McU as Namor the Sub-Mariner, who might just get his own film in the near future.
In light of recent reports suggesting the superhero movie’s potential existence, Yen’s fans have begun Tweeting photos of the popular actor alongside comic book stills of the character, which the martial arts actor has Re-Tweeted throughout the day. That doesn’t necessarily mean he’s ruthlessly gunning for the job, but it does suggest that he’s, at the very least, interested in the project.

The message for Paramount is clear: Not good enough.
In an interview with Variety on Thursday, Viacom CEO Bob Bakish said he was pleased with the 18 Oscar nominations that Paramount recently picked up for “Fences,” “Arrival,” and other critical favorites, while stressing that the film studio needs to become profitable.
“Paramount did well this quarter on the critically-acclaimed side, but we were disappointed on the financial side,” Bakish said.
Paramount, which has suffered a string of flops like “Ben-Hur” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows,” had another rough fiscal quarter. Viacom reported that the film studio was mired in red ink during the most recent earnings period, posting an $180 million operating loss, down 23% year-over-year. Last year, Paramount was dead last among the six major studios in terms of market share.

MaryAnn’s quick take… A great Batman movie, a great superhero movie, and a gloriously bonkers expression of the sublime silliness of crime fighters in capes, and our love of them. I’m “biast” (pro): really liked The Lego Movie
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
He’s Batman. (Say it in a low growl for best effect.) The little Lego minifig in black actually works as a superhero. Of course he appeared in The Lego Movie a couple years back, but he was a joke, a sideshow, a parody of the Dark Knight. Would spinning him off into his own movie work as anything other than a caricature, and wouldn’t he be just one joke stretched too thin across a full movie? Wouldn’t the few things that made The Lego Movie stand apart from all the many »

It was a squeaker, but Universal’s “Split” has edged past Paramount’s “Rings” to narrowly claim victory at the domestic box office. The low-budget thriller retained its first place position for the third consecutive weekend, earning $14.6 million. So far, “Split,” the story of a man with multiple personalities, has made $98.7 million stateside, while costing just $9 million, making it very profitable indeed. The film stars James McAvoy, was directed by “The Sixth Sense’s” M. Night Shyamalan, and produced by Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions, the maker of “Sinister” and “Paranormal Activity.”
“It’s a darn good movie,” said Nick Carpou, Universal’s domestic distribution chief. “It’s very satisfying for audiences. People seek out quality.”
It was a quiet weekend for Hollywood. After all, most of America’s attention has shifted away from the multiplexes to the coming battle between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons. The »

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."
