Zoolander 2 Leads 2017 Razzie Shortlist

zoolander2razzies

Update: This is just the shortlist apparently, which is why there are more than 5 nominees in each category.

In addition to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, there was another major awards body preparing to “honour” some movies over the weekend. That’s right, the 2017 Razzie nominations were announced yesterday and this time around, they’ve decided to spread out the razzing by allowing a seemingly arbitrary number of nominees in each category. Because hey, why not? Zoolander 2 leads the way with 9 nominations although everyone is reporting that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has the most nods (I guess that makes for a better headline). BvS: DoJ has 8 while Dirty Grandpa has 7. Sadly, they’ve done away with the Razzie Redeemer Award this year… I guess there was simply no redemption to be found. What do you think of this year’s nominees? Check out the full list of 2017 Razzie nominations after the jump.

    “Worst Supporting Actor: Jeff Goldblum – Independence Day: Resurgence”

    I thought Goldblum was touted as the BEST thing about that ID:R?
