One day prior to the announcement of the Academy Award nominees, the 37th annual Golden Raspberry Awards, aka the Razzies, have released their picks for the year’s worst in film and it’s a sorry bunch indeed.

Calling the movie a “WTF comic-book battle royale,” Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was handed a total of eight nominations, including worst picture of 2016, a category that also includes Dirty Grandpa, Gods of Egypt, Hillary’s America: The Secret of the Democratic Party, Independence Day: Resurgence, and Zoolander 2.

Zoolander 2 had the most nominations overall with nine mentions, while other multiple nominees were Dirty Grandpa (six), Gods of Egypt, Hillary’s America, and Independence Day: Resurgence with five apiece, and Alice Through the Looking Glass with three.

Some of Batman v Superman’s other notable award nominations include worst actor for both Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill (they also got a nod for worst screen combo), as well as worst screenplay and worst director for Zack Snyder. Zoolander 2‘s acting pool was given a Razzie nod across the board, with a worst actor nomination for Ben Stiller, worst supporting actress for Kristen Wiig, worst supporting actor for Will Ferrel and Own Wilson, and worst screen combo for Stiller and Wilson.

According to a press release sent out by the Razzie organizers, 2016 was such a bad year for movies that they decided to expand their categories to six nominees for the first time.

“The crop of cinematic crap in 2016 was so extensive that this year’s 37th annual Razzie Awards is expanding the number of nominees from the usual five to an unprecedented six contenders in each of its nine worst achievement in film categories.”

Here is the full list of Razzie nominations. If you disagree with some of the picks, just remember that the Razzies are even more meaningless than the Academy Awards!
