Ben Affleck and Ben Stiller

Razzies 2017: Who Is Worse — Ben Affleck Or Ben Stiller?

While everyone is talking about La La Land regarding the movie’s astounding 14 Oscar nominations, the other movie making the most buzz is Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is up for its own astounding eight Razzie nominations. Ben Affleck himself is up for two Razzies. Only one other movie has more nominations for being the worst movie of 2016. Zoolander No. 2 has been nominated for nine Razzies, of which Ben Stiller is nominated for three awards. Both actors’ nominations include Worst Actor in their respective movies.

The official website for the 37th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards (aka Razzies) announced the full list of nominated “losers” yesterday, which features more than ever before.

“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,” states the website. “‘Winners’ of this year’s tackiest Tinsel Town trophy will be revealed on Saturday, February 25 – the now traditional day before the 89th Annual Giving Out of the Little Gold Naked Men.”

Other movies in the running include Dirty Grandpa (six nominations), Gods of Egypt (five nominations), Hilary’s America (five nominations), Independence Day: Resurgence (five nominations), and Alice Through the Looking Glass (three nominations).

There are currently 1,014 voting Razzie members from 24 countries and 49 of the 50 United States. No word on which state is not represented in the voting. Those members vote for eight of the nine categories. For the Worst Screen Combo “award,” the Razzies partner up with Rotten Tomatoes.
