Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice dominated the 37th annual satirical awards show. The two films combined to "win" in every category except for worst supporting actress, which went to Kristen Wiig for her botoxed fashionista character in Zoolander No. 2.
Director Dinesh D'Souza's anti-Hillary Clinton film took home four Razzies, including worst picture, beating out Batman v Superman, Gods of Egypt, Bad Grandpa, Zoolander No. 2 and Independence Day: Resurgence. D'Souza also earned himself personal honors for worst director and worst actor – D'Souza played himself in the film. D'Souza was a good sport about his "win", recording a self-shot video in which he claimed the award, saying, "The reason you're giving it to me is because you're very upset that [Donald] Trump won." The film's lead actress, Becky Turner, also won worst actress for her portrayal of the former Democratic presidential candidate.
Not to be outdone, Zack Snyder's superhero feud picture, Batman v Superman, also took home four awards. Stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill won worst onscreen combo as their titular supes, while Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor scored him a worst supporting actor Razzie. The film also won worst remake, ripoff or sequel, as it was a continuation of the DC cinematic universe following 2013's Man of Steel. The film rounded out its "successes" with a worst screenplay win.
Not all the awards were given to lambaste the nominees' work, however, as former 2014 worst supporting actor nominee, for the Expendables 3, Mel Gibson won the Razzie Redeemer award for his Oscar-nominated direction of Hacksaw Ridge.
The full winners list is below.
