Somewhere among fiery garbage mess known as 2016 — presidential election notwithstanding, this was the year that gave us lemons like Tarzan and Warcraft in one summer — Zoolander 2 was released. And, in case any more confirmation was needed, it was not great. The Zoolander sequel and Batman v Superman top the list of the misguided passion projects nominated for this year’s Razzie Awards, which honor the absolute worst in film. As you might expect if you were subjected to sitting through them in theaters, Gods of Egypt, Dirty Grandpa, and Mother’s Day all finally get their due, while Collateral Beauty earned exactly the pithy criticism it deserves with its Worst Screen Combo nod for the “entire cast of once respected actors.” See the entire list of nominees below. The “winners” will be announced Saturday, February 25.
