Batman v Superman and Zoolander 2 battle it out for worst movie of 2016 at the Razzies

TODO alt text

Who needs the Oscars, with their pomp and circumstance, their glitz and glam? If you're like me and enjoy a good bit of schadenfreude, it's the Razzies that you should be paying attention to. And this year, the nominees are strong. Downright superhuman, in fact.

Yup, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has nabbed eight nominations, including "worst picture" and "worst director." As bad as that may sound, it's actually Zoolander 2 that has the most nominations this year, including "worst picture," "worst director," and two nods in the category of "worst supporting actor."

Personally, I kinda liked Dawn of Justice - or at least parts of it - and felt that Suicide Squad was the more flawed of DC's offerings. But hey, I don't make the rules. For better or worse (okay, definitely worse) this is the full list of nominees at the 2016 Razzies. The … erm, "winners" will be crowned on February 25:
