Nominations for worst film at 2017 Razzies

The annual anti-awards highlights the films that were considered to be flops in the last calendar year

Ben Stiller’s Zoolander 2 and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice are among the leading nominees at this year’s Razzies, the awards show that ‘honours’ the worst films of the previous year.

The Golden Raspberry Awards – Razzies for short – have been held annually in Hollywood since 1981, where it traditionally stages its ceremony the day before the Academy Awards celebrates the best that film has had to offer in the past twelve months. Most winners do not attend the Razzies to receive their ‘prize’, but notable exceptions over the years have included Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock and Tom Green.

Announcing their nominations the day before tomorrow’s highly-anticipated Oscars nominations reveal, leading the Razzies contenders this year is Zoolander 2, with nine nominations including Worst Picture. Its director and star, Stiller, has been further recognised in the Worst Director and Worst Actor categories.

Elsewhere in the nominations, the critically-panned Batman v Superman picked up eight nominations, including Worst Picture and two nods in the Worst Actor category for its two leads, Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel and Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader. Gerard Butler, meanwhile, is nominated in the Worst Actor category for two separate roles – Gods of Egypt and London Has Fallen.

The Razzies organisers also announced during their nominations reveal that they had expanded the number of nominees in each category this year to recognise a particularly ‘bad’ year for cinema.
