While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice made a lot of money at the box office last year, the majority of critics didn’t like it and the general audience was so-so. It’s arguably the most polarizing comic book movie to date. In fact, the “cool thing to do” has become talking trash about the film and greatly exaggerating its flaws. It’s gotten to the point where it picked up several nominations at this year’s Razzie Awards, and now, the results are in.
Batman v Superman picked up a total of four Razzie awards, tying with Hillary’s America as the biggest “winner” of the event. BvS won in the “Worst Remake, Spin-Off or Sequel” and “Worst Screenplay” categories. Lex Luthor actor Jesse Eisenberg picked up the “Worst Supporting Actor” award, while Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill won in “Worst Screen Combo.”
I know that the Razzie Awards are essentially a big joke, but Batman v Superman winning several awards is a bit disappointing. I loved the film (the Ultimate Edition, anyways) way more than most of last year’s comic book movies. And a far inferior film, Suicide Squad, is nominated for an Oscar. (Granted, it probably won’t win, but still.) But hey, it is what it is.
