Razzie Awards 2017 Predictions: Here’s who deserves to win each awful award

Razzie Awards 2017 Predictions: Here’s who deserves to win each awful award

Good news for fans of DC Comics' cinematic universe: This year's films are getting some awards buzz. The bad: Well, it's for the Razzies

The 2017 Razzies nominations are here, and unfortunately for DC, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad earned several nominations each. Not to be outdone, however, is Zoolander No. 2, which garnered the most with eight.

At this point, it's indisputable that all of the movies that made the list are bad — that's why they're there. The real question is who is nabbing the awards this year without Razzies stalwart Adam Sandler, who is to the Razzies what Meryl Streep is to practically every other awards show. 

Considering the Razzies are hard to predict — seriously, if you pay a fee, you can be a Razzies voting member — here's who we believe deserves the honor of the worst awards in the film industry for each category. 

Worst picture

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Dirty Grandpa

Gods of Egypt

Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party

Independence Day: Resurgence

Zoolander No. 2

Should win: Gods of Egypt. It's one thing to be a bad movie — and rest assured, it's terrible — but Gods of Egypt doubles as one of the worst instances of Hollywood whitewashing in the past year. Gerard Butler and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau make for comical Egyptian Gods. This movie needs to be dragged to all hell and buried inside a sarcophagus. 

Worst actor 

Ben Affleck (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice)

Gerard Butler (Gods of Egypt and London Has Fallen)

Henry Cavill (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Robert de Niro (Dirty Grandpa)

Dinesh D’Souza, as himself (Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party)

Ben Stiller (Zoolander No. 2)

Should win: Gerard Butler. Being lambasted in two movies is just the icing on the cake. He's much deserved for Gods of Egypt alone. 

Worst actress

Megan Fox (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows)

Tyler Perry (BOO! A Medea Halloween)

Julia Roberts (Mother’s Day)

Becky Turner, as Hillary Clinton (Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party)

Naomi Watts (Divergent Series: Allegiant & Shut-In)

Shailene Woodley (Divergent Series: Allegiant

Should win: Shailene Woodley. It's quite telling when your once-promising young adult dystopian drama goes from blockbuster prowess to television movie punishment in the span of three films.   

Worst supporting actress

Julianne Hough (Dirty Grandpa)

Kate Hudson (Mother’s Day)

Aubrey Plaza (Dirty Grandpa)

Jane Seymour (Fifty Shades of Black)

Sela Ward (Independence Day: Resurgence)

Kristen Wiig (Zoolander No. 2)

Should win: Kristen Wiig. The former Saturday Night Live actress, who's made a promising move to the big screen with the likes of Bridesmaids, Anchorman 2 and Ghosbusters, couldn't escape the blandless of Zoolander No. 2

Worst supporting actor 

Nicolas Cage (Snowden)

Johnny Depp (Alice Through the Looking Glass)

Will Ferrell (Zoolander No. 2)

Jesse Eisenberg (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice)

Jared Leto (Suicide Squad)

Owen Wilson (Zoolander No. 2)

Should win: Jared Leto. When you brag about your method acting; harass your co-stars on set; barely show up in the movie and underwhelm when you are on-screen, you deserve a Razzie. 

Worst screen combo 

Ben Affleck and His BFF (Baddest Foe Forever) Henry Cavill (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice)

Any Two Egyptian Gods or Mortals (Gods of Egypt)

Johnny Depp and His Vomitously Vibrant Costume (Alice Through the Looking Glass)

The Entire Cast of Once Respected Actors (Collateral Beauty)

Tyler Perry and That Same Old Worn Out Wig (BOO! A Medea Halloween

Ben Stiller and His BFF (Barely Funny Friend) Owen Wilson / Zoolander No. 2

Should win: Collateral Beauty. For more on the disastrous but somehow captivating mess that is Collateral Beauty, please read Mic's review from Kevin O'Keeffe. 

Worst director 

Dinesh D'Souza and Bruce Schooley (Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party)

Roland Emmerich (Independence Day: Resurgence)

Tyler Perry (BOO! A Medea Halloween

Alex Proyas (Gods of Egypt)

Zack Snyder (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice)

Ben Stiller (Zoolander No. 2)

Should win: Dinesh D'Souza and Bruce Schooley. You can currently find D'Souza on Twitter, where in the past he's let off racially charged rants about former President Barack Obama. He's earned this. 

Worst prequel, remake, rip-off of sequel 

Alice Through the Looking Glass

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Fifty Shades of Black

Independence Day: Resurgence

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows

Zoolander No. 2

Should win: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. You can thank this movie for a plethora of internet memes. It made Ben Affleck sad. It makes us sad too. 

Worst screenplay 

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Dirty Grandpa

Gods of Egypt

Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party

Independence Day: Resurgence

Suicide Squad

Should win: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The only reason that Batman doesn't kill Superman in Dawn of Justice is because their mothers share the same name: Martha. That's also the only reason one needs to label this as the worst screenplay of the year.
