Batman v Superman Wins Big at Razzies

Posted 2017/02/25 4616 0

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and the documentary Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party both picked up four Razzies to dominate the 37th Golden Raspberry Awards, Hollywood's annual celebration of the year's worst films.

 

The Golden Raspberry Awards, which happen the day before the Oscars, celebrate the worst and most ridiculous films of the year. While the event’s top honors (like Worst Picture and Director) went to Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party, Batman v Superman tied for number of awards received. The DC superhero movie, which starred Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, picked up awards for Worst Supporting Actor (Jesse Eisenberg), Worst Screen Combo (Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill), Worst Remake, Rip-Off Or Sequel and Worst Screenplay. Although Zoolander No. 2 led the nominations with nine nods, it only received one award, as Digital Spy reports.

Other Razzie winners included Kristen Wiig (Worst Supporting Actress for Zoolander 2) and, in the evening's lone complimentary trophy, Mel Gibson was named the Razzie Redeemer Award after returning to Oscar-nominated glory with Hacksaw Ridge.

Winners of the year’s worst films are given a gold, spray-painted trophy. The awards are voted for online by around 1,000 Razzie members from 24 countries, who sign up online and pay a $40 membership fee.
