Oscars 2016: Razzie Award Nominations

I completely forgot the Razzie Awards were a thing. I’ve been so focused on the Oscars and other things.

But you know, we look at these because — they’re there.

Before I even open up the list of nominees — Batman v. Superman… Dirty Grandpa, Independence Day, probably Gods of Egypt… probably a Madea nomination there. I’d love to see Zoolander.

Though they always do weird shit, so I’m sure I’m way off. I am certain they’ve gone all in on the Affleck/Batman bashing. I know they’ll do that.

Let’s see what they’ve gone and done now:

Worst Picture

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Dirty Grandpa

Gods of Egypt

Hilary’s America

Independence Day: Resurgence

Zoolander 2

Did I just almost nail that category cold? Holy shit.

I love that they put the political one on there. Good for them.

I assume they’ll go all in on Batman, as they should.

Worst Director

Dinesh D’Souza and Bruce Schooley, Hilary’s America

Roland Emmerich, Independence Day: Resurgence

Tyler Perry, Boo! A Madea Halloween

Alex Proyas, Gods of Egypt

Zack Snyder, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Ben Stiller, Zoolander 2

Hmm. No comment.

Worst Actor

Ben Affleck, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Gerard Butler, Gods of Egypt

Henry Cavill, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Robert De Niro, Dirty Grandpa

Dinesh D’Souza, Hilary’s America

Ben Stiller, Zoolander 2

Affleck doesn’t really deserve this, but they’ll give it to him.

Honestly, and I hate to say it… De Niro.

Worst Actress

Megan Fox, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

Tyler Perry, Boo! A Madea Halloween

Julia Roberts, Mother’s Day

Rebekah Turner, Hilary’s America

Naomi Watts, Allegiant and Shut In

Shailene Woodley, Allegiant

Julia. I just think that choice all around just reeked of what this award is all about. They’ll give it to Rebekah Turner though.

Worst Supporting Actor

Nicolas Cage, Snowden

Johnny Depp, Alice Through the Looking Glass

Jesse Eisenberg, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Will Ferrell, Zoolander 2

Jared Leto, Suicide Squad

Owen Wilson, Zoolander 2

Cage? Why? Because you could? Because he’s in it for no reason and distracts the audience? I don’t get it. I never do.

Depp, I get, but that’s kicking a man when he’s contractually obligated to be down.

Eisenberg — understood.

Ferrell and Wilson — sure? But they’re basically doing what they did the first time with worse material. So why not nominate them that time too?

Leto’s gonna win this. This is a DC year, and they’ve brought this upon themselves.

Worst Supporting Actress

Julianne Hough, Dirty Grandpa

Kate Hudson, Mother’s Day

Aubrey Plaza, Dirty Grandpa

Jane Seymour, Fifty Shades of Black

Sela Ward, Independence Day: Resurgence

Kristen Wiig, Zoolander 2

The Jane Seymour nomination is one of those “what the fuck are you doing” nominations. They like those.

They hate Julianne Hough on principle, so I get that.

They’ll probably give it to Aubrey Plaza, knowing them. Or Hough. They make weird decisions. I don’t know.

Worst Screenplay

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Dirty Grandpa

Gods of Egypt

Hilary’s America

Independence Day: Resurgence

Suicide Squad

Doubling down on the DC. Good for them!

Dirty Grandpa deserves it. Or Hilary’s America.

Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel

Alice Through the Looking Glass

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Fifty Shades of Black

Independence Day: Resurgence

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

Zoolander 2

Zoolander should win this, or Independence Day, but you know what they’re gonna do.

No Worst Couple or anything like that? Okay. Light year.

I’m happy that almost their entire category for Worst Picture is comprised of Unforgivables. That makes me feel better. Not that these awards matter in the least. Though I would be interested in having a legitimately crowd sourced list of what people generally think are the worst films and performances of the year. I’d so try to get that done if I had any sort of following on this site.


One response

  1. I am pretty sure that there was a worst couple list, because Cavil and Affleck were nominated…also something really weird…some actor with his costume or something? I forgot….
