Razzie Awards 2017: Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice Nabs 4 Honors

By

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 up on this list may enrage some people, as despite all the negative reviews, it’s still got a pretty dedicated fanbase who will defend it vehemently.

Regardless, Snyder’s film managed to pick up 4 Razzie awards today, finding itself walking home with Worst Supporting Actor which, admittedly, it probably deserved as almost everyone can agree that Jesse Eisenberg’s portrayal of Lex Luthor was one of the worst parts of the movie. Aside from that, it also nabbed Worst Screen Combo, Worst Screenplay and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel. Admittedly, it could have done a whole lot worse for itself given how many nominations it had and fans can take solace in the fact that at least it wasn’t crowned Worst Picture, and that Affleck escaped being given the Worst Actor award.

The other big winner of the night was Hilary’s America, and appropriately so, while in more positive news, Mel Gibson found himself being given the Razzie Redeemer award for Hacksaw Ridge, a film which might just earn him an Oscar as well.
