2016: A Year of Movies SO Bad The Razzies®
Had to Expand to Six Nominees Per Category!

Zoolander No. 2 and Batman v Superman
lead the Pack with Most Nominations

The crop of cinematic crap in 2016 was so extensive that this year's 37th Annual Razzie® Awards is expanding from 5 nominees to an unprecedented 6 contenders in each of its 9 Worst Achievement in Film categories.

Leading this year's list of movie-misfires are the 15-years-too-late sequel Zoolander No. 2 and   the WTF comic book battle-royale Batman v Superman. Each is up for both Worst Picture and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel. Other Worst Picture nominees include Dirty Grandpa, Gods of Egypt, Hillary's America and Independence Day: Resurgence. Acting contenders include Ben Affleck, Johnny Depp, Julia Roberts and Robert de Niro. A complete list of this year's nominees is included with this press release and at razzies.com

Our nomination announcement will be available at Razzie Channel after 5:30am/PST Monday. “Winners” of this year's tackiest Tinsel Town trophy will be revealed on Saturday, February 25 – the now traditional day before the 89th Annual Giving Out of the Little Gold Naked Men.

Voting Razzie Members (1,014 from 49 US States and 24 countries) selected contenders in 8 of our 9 categories.  For Worst Screen Combo, we partnered again with Rotten Tomatoes where tens of thousands of users picked the nominees.
