'Batman v Superman,' 'Hillary's America' tie for Razzie worst film award


UPDATE: The Razzie Awards announced this year's "winners" Saturday.

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and  "Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party" tied for worst film award honors, scoring four Razzie awards each. Worst supporting actor went to Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Wiig won for worst supporting actress. Dinesh D'Souza won the worst actor award, while Becky Turner (as Hillary Clinton) won for worst actress, both starring in "Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party."

Read the original report below.

A day before Academy Award nominations showcased the best in film, the people behind what they deemed "this year's tackiest Tinsel Town trophy" announced the contenders for the worst in 2016 cinema.

The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation on Monday announced the nominees for its nine categories. The nominees will learn on Feb. 25 whether they won the awards, often known as Razzies.

This year, the categories each have six contestants as opposed to the regular five because, organizer Glenn Simon said, "2016 was so overfull of bad movies that we had to expand every category."

A majority of the categories were chosen by the Golden Raspberry Award's 1,000 voting members. The Worst Screen Combo nominees were chosen by a vote on movie review site Rotten Tomatoes.

"Zoolander 2" led the pack with nine Razzie nominations, including worst picture, worst actor and two nominations for worst supporting actor.

The comedy, which came out 15 years after the original "Zoolander," was closely followed by the superhero action movie "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." That film was nominated for eight Razzies, including worst picture and worst prequel, remake, rip-off or sequel.
