It is that time of year again! With award season in full swing and the Oscars just around the corner, it is finally that time of year when the Razzies (The Golden Raspberry Awards) come around to honor Hollywood’s worst and dimmest, and let’s face it, 2016 had some doozies. Remember, this is the Shortlist and not the official nominations, but the final list will look most likely look very similar to this. The potentially most-nominated Razzie films of the year are, unsurprisingly, ‘Batman V Superman’ with 8 nominations (although one might go rather unfairly to Ben Affleck, and I don’t think he really deserves that), ‘The Divergent Series: Allegiant’ with 6, and ‘Assassin’s Creed’ with 5. Make sure to check out the full list below, and then feel free to share your thoughts on any additions on there you thought were unfair, or any actors, directors, writers or films that you thought were awful this year that really needed to be on this list.
