Even the Razzies got political at the 2017 awards, recognizing the “worst in film.”

The Golden Raspberry Awards, nicknamed the “Razzies” crowned “Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” the worst picture of the year on Saturday, the day before the Academy Awards. The critically drubbed political documentary, which earned a staggering 4% on Rotten Tomatoes, also swept the worst actor, worst actress and worst director categories.

As to not be entirely overlooked, “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” also took home four awards for worst supporting actor, screenplay, screen combo and, finally, worst prequel, remake, rip-off or sequel.

    Not many back pocket liberal political hacks making up these lists, I guess!

  2. sameera says:

    Actually, I am a big of action and comic movies. While am watching Batman vs superman movie I enjoyed a lot.I agree “Jhon TH ” point.

  3. mustcrochet says:

    “Oh now there’s a surprise. I think I’ll have a heart attack and die from not surprised!” – Iago from Disney’s “Aladdin”. Of course the Razzies would go after “Hillary’s America”, even though most of what was shown was SPOT ON. There were so many more that deserved those awards. Again, the Hollywood leftist elitist egotists have to protect their patron saint.

  4. Shai Dorsai says:

    Interesting. I didn’t see a single picture mention.
    That sort of tells you the claptrap that Hollyweird makes lately.

  5. Roy Rowlett says:

    I wonder if any of the people voting for Hillary’s America as “worst picture”, actually viewed it.

    • I did. It was awful. Let me give you the rundown:

      The film begins with D’Souza playing the victim card over the fact that he spent 8 months in a halfway house for a campaign finance violation (to the point that he even blames Obama for his plight), before launching into a baseless straw-man attack on the Democratic Party as being racist as if nothing has changed in the left or right for the past 150 years — as if the Democratic Party who supported the Ku Klux Klan back in the day is the same Democratic Party of today. All this is thrown together haphazardly, interspersed with meaningless musical numbers, cheesy historical reenactments, and needlessly patronizing images of slaves being beaten.

      He doesn’t even get to discussing Hillary Clinton until over an hour in, instead spending more time digging up dirt on Andrew Jackson, Lyndon Johnson, and Barack Obama (whom he previously targeted in another, slightly better-received film).

      it is also worth noting that the Razzies have almost always considered political issues taboo, Critic Brad Jones claims this is the first movie he has EVER walked out on. That should give you an idea of just how bad this stinker is. It doesn’t help that even though D’Souza felt quite honored for the participation in the Razzies he himself has claimed the nominations were “petty revenge” for Donald Trump’s Presidential victory and thinking that his film “might have played an important role in the election” despite Donald Trump only mentioning it ONCE during his campaign.

      • Edward says:

        Leftist hacks actually watching an anti-Hillary film, don’t think so! They LOVE fatso Michael Moore’s blathering excrement, however.

  6. Art says:

    I am SHOCKED! A bunch of lefties didn’t like a doc outing them and their corrupt leadership? SHOCKED! What’s next? You’re gonna tell me you don’t like Trump?

    • Jacen says:

      Well, considering that Donaldo Trumpolini is the worst person ever to have run for/become president, then yeah. Of course, when it’s your guy who’s doing corrupt, questionable, or morally/ethically bankrupt things, then it’s okay. Rationalization + authoritarian mindset = rising American Reich. (See also: the ReptiliCons’ utilizing obstructionist tactics instead of working with the opposition the way that politicians pre-2000–including dearly sainted McReagan–used to do. But hey–we’re in an internet-infected world of infantile “No! No! Mine! Mine! Not the mama! Not the mama!”)

      • If you can find ONE positive review, I’d love to hear it

      • Shai Dorsai says:

        I’d argue that Hillary was worse than him. When you see all the crybabies scream and moan and complain that Their Goddess was not beloved by the entire world it is very obvious that the Lesser of Two Evils won in November.

  7. Stranger says:

    What?! Collateral Beauty wasn’t even nominated? It was likely the most pretentious film of of the year and certainly the most navel-gazing film of the year. Will Smith & Co., you were robbed!

  8. Cheese Cake says:

    I would like to nominate the 2017 Razzie Awards for the 2028 Razzie Award. Something cute and stupid just got politically stupid and even more irrelevant.

  9. Surprised not to see “Southside With You” on the list…. Oh, it’s about Barack and Michelle, silly me.

  10. D Dog says:

    This is all politically driven BS. People liked the movie, these people are obviously still bitter.

    Even the liberal Hollywood Reporter ran the headline: Box Office: Dinesh D’Souza’s ‘Hillary’s America’ Becomes Top-Grossing Doc of 2016.

    • Jacen says:

      Following your logic, I guess you’d support Fahrenheit 9/11 as greatest movie ever, or at least greatest documentary ever, since it is indeed the highest grossing documentary ever. Yes? Yes? Popularity equals quality, right? Transformers movies are masterpieces, yes?

  11. John Th says:

    Batman vs Superman should have won all the awards

  12. john says:

    “Batman vs. Superman” is a fascinating lesson in bad decisions that ruin a movie: You can have an Oscar-winning screenwriter, a talented visual stylist and a solid cast – and still creat an amazingly awful movie….How does that work? The answer is pretty simple: They fu*ked it up in post-production: The performance of Jesse Eisenberg isn’t bad in itself, but through ill-advised editing he appears like a demented fool in some scenes. The screenplay is ambitious and has good ideas and effective scenes, but by cutting 30 minutes out it became nearly incomprehensible. The “Director’s Cut” version is not a bad movie, but the theatrical version deserves all the Razzies it got – and more !

  14. Steve says:

    Was convicted felon Dinesh D’Souza there to pick up his awards?

    • Art says:

      Convicted felon? He gave $600 anonymously to a friend’s political campaign. Its not like he’s Roman Polansky, Victor Salva, John Podesta or James Alefantis ffs.

    • Jacen says:

      No, I’m pretty sure Douche D’Mentia is currently working on some catastrophe that simultaneously acclaims Trumpelstiltskin as the greatest human since Jesus while still disparaging the evil Democrats as destroying America/the world, despite not being remotely in power.

  15. Bill B. says:

    Well, they certainly picked the right choices for picture, director, actor & actress, but is Batman vs. Superman that bad?! I haven’t seen it, but it’s hard to imagine it is this terrible.

  16. as always the Razzies are about relevant of the fresh littler in my cheetah’s litterbox. Even the very worst film is still better then anything the staff of the Razzies have ever filmed. Why trade papers continue to cover such a zero event is beyond me. Leave that crap to Harvey and his crew of ghouls over at TMZ.

  17. Jan says:

    Very well deserved. Regardless of politics, it’s a POS of a film.
