The Nominations For The Absolute Dirt Worst Films Of 2016 Are In

Much more fun than the Oscars

A trashy, ironic and much more fun alternative to the Oscars, the Razzies celebrate the absolute worst of the year's cinematic releases, rewarding the total dross that studios and directors deem multiplex-worthy, and 2016 sure did have some turkeys.

The most high profile critical dud of the year (although it did pull in £700million globally) was Batman v Superman, with both Henry Cavill and Jesse Eisenberg offering up some of the worst performances in a long and illustrious line of bad movies.

Regarding this year's crop of talent, the Razzie committee said: "The crop of cinematic crap in 2016 was so extensive that this year's 37th annual Razzie Awards is expanding the number of nominees from the usual five to an unprecedented six contenders in each of its nine worst achievement in film categories."

Nominees in all categories were selected by online votes from 1,014 voting Razzie members throughout 49 states and 23 countries, so you can't even blame institutional bias. They're just really bad films.
