'Zoolander No. 2' and 'Batman vs. Superman' lead the Razzies' pack

• Feb 25, 2017 at 7:00 AM

The crop of cinematic crap in 2016 was so extensive that this year's 37th annual Razzie Awards expanded from five nominees to an unprecedented six contenders in each of its nine Worst Achievement in Film categories.

Leading this year's list of movie-misfires are the 15-years-too-late sequel “Zoolander No. 2” and the comic book battle-royale “Batman vs. Superman.” Each is up for both Worst Picture and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel.

Other Worst Picture nominees include “Dirty Grandpa,” “Gods of Egypt,” “Hillary's America” and “Independence Day: Resurgence.” Acting contenders include Ben Affleck, Johnny Depp, Julia Roberts and Robert de Niro. 

“Winners” of this year's tackiest Tinsel Town trophy will be revealed later today (Saturday, Feb. 25), the now traditional day before the 89th annual Giving Out of the Little Gold Naked Men.

Voting Razzie Members (1,014 from 49 states and 24 countries) selected contenders in eight of nine of categories. For Worst Screen Combo, the Razzies partnered again with Rotten Tomatoes, where tens of thousands of users picked the nominees.
