Razzies 2017 Nominations Increased; Ben Stiller's Zoolander and Ben Affleck's Batman Included
The Academy Awards will shortly release their nominees for the 2017 Oscars. Meanwhile, in true fashion, the Razzies announced theirs before the prestigious award-giving body. The Razzies nominees include Ben Stiller's Zoolander 2 and Ben Affleck's superhero movie, Batman.
Razzies 2017 nominations are out! Reuters reports that Zoolander 2 and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice were top contenders for the worst film made in 2016. Stiller's "fashion industry satire" movie reaped a total of eight nominations including worst director.
Meanwhile, another media outlet reports that apart from the Meet the Fockers actor, his co-stars, Will Ferrel and Owen Wilson were nominated for "worst supporting actors." On the other hand, Affleck's movie received nominations for worst film and worst actor category.
The award-giving body sadly reported that they had to increase the number of nominees from five to six. This is as if to convey a message that there were a lot of bad films were produced last year.
The publication reported that award-winning actor Robert De Niro's Dirty Grandpa is included in the list. The Razzies will announce their winner on Feb. 25, a day before the Oscars will award their much-coveted trophy.
I have not seen Zoolander 2 and even the first movie. I am not sure I will be a fan of those movies either. Well, let us see who between the two Bens will reap the most awards from the Razzies!
