Batman V Superman Tops Razzies Nominations Shortlist

Batman V Superman Tops Razzies Nominations Shortlist

Batman and Superman might have something else that unites them other than their common love of the name Martha: They could dual-dominate the Razzies this year.

The Golden Raspberry Awards released this year’s nominations shortlist. While it’s not the final list of nominees (that gets revealed on January 23), it is an indication of what might’ve been the worst of the worst in 2016. And right now, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is leading the pack with eight nominations. This includes Worst Actor nominations for Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck — the latter of whom (perhaps ironically) was the first recipient of the Razzie Redeemer Award, given to previous Razzie winners who’ve bounced back.

Comic book movies have always had a presence in the Razzies, including last year’s Worst Picture win for Fantastic Four, but 2017 could be the year that scifi, superheroes, and video games dominate the Razzies. The third Divergent flick has six nominations on the list, and Assassin’s Creed is not far behind with five. Ghostbusters is nominated for Worst Screenplay. Even Suicide Squad has nabbed a couple of nominations, including Worst Supporting Actor for Jared Leto’s performance as the Joker.

For me, I’m holding out hope that Gods of Egypt emerges victorious this year. Batman v Superman may suck, but compared to Jaime Lannister and Gerald Butler as Egyptian gods, the superpowered duo is practically golden.
