In the run up to the most prestigious film ceremony, the Academy Awards, there is one other ceremony that instead or rewarding the good seeks to highlight and shame the downright awful. The Razzies.

To really fully appreciate how bad 2016 was for film, The Razzies have expanded their usual five nominations to six per category, so that all who under-performed could grab a chance at a Golden Rasberry.

Not surprising, the suck-fest that was Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice is leading the charge, nominated in all but the worst actress categories. Both stars Affleck and Cavill are nominated for Worst Actor while also nominated in the Worst Screen Combo category. Jesse Eisenberg’s portrayal of Lex Luthor may win him Worst Supporting Actor while Zack Snyder is nominated for Worst Director. The film itself is nominated for Worst Picture, Worst Screenplay and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off, Or Sequel.
