The two films are up for worst picture, and worst prequel, remake, rip-off, or sequel. Other worst movie Razzie nominees are the Robert De Niro comedy “Dirty Grandpa”; sequel “Independence Day: Resurgence,” starring Liam Hemsworth and Jeff Goldblum; fantasy adventure “Gods of Egypt,” and documentary “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party.”
Described as the “15-years-too-late sequel” in the press release, “Zoolander 2” received eight Razzie nominations, including for its director and star Ben Stiller, as well as co-stars Owen Wilson, Will Ferrell, and Kristen Wiig.
“WTF comic book battle-royale” “Batman v Superman” also nabbed Razzie nods for worst screenplay and worst actor for both stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. Gerard Butler (“Gods of Egypt” and “London Has Fallen”), De Niro (“Dirty Grandpa”), and Dinesh D’Souza (“Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party”) round out the category.
Meanwhile, the worst actress nominees are Megan Fox (“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows”), Tyler Perry (“Boo! A Madea Halloween”), Julia Roberts (“Mother’s Day”), Becky Turner (“Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party”), Naomi Watts (“Divergent Series: Allegiant” and “Shut-In”), and Watts’ “Allegiant” costar Shailene Woodley.
