'Hillary' wins! At the Razzies, that is

'Hillary' wins! At the Razzies, that is

It's easy to remember the days of Adam Sandler making a movie and then going home with an armful of Golden Raspberry Awards for making the worst movie of the year.

It was nominated for 5 Razzies, winning 4 of the awards. The two movies won four Razzie awards apiece, it was announced on Saturday.

Besides worst picture, "Hillary's America" also won worst actor and director for Dinesh D'Souza (who played himself), worst actress for the unnamed person who played Clinton and worst director.

"Hillary's America" beat "Batman v Superman" for the prize of Worst Picture and the Razzies committee said in a statement: "It all came down to two decidedly different examples of cinematic sludge: The $250 million comic book oop-us "Batman v Superman" and the faux right wing "documentary" 'Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party'".

In the past, they've set their sights on Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey, but this year the Razzie Awards took down Batman, Superman and Hillary Clinton detractors.

The non-star-studded ceremony, which took place in Hollywood just a day before the Oscars handed out, handed the movie awards for worst screenplay, worst remake, ripoff or sequel, and worst screen combo for Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck.

Carlos Ghosn, perhaps the most powerful man in the global auto industry, is stepping down from his role as CEO of Nissan Motor Co. But he became a famously globetrotting CEO by also taking on responsibilities for running France's Renault.

The Social Network star Jesse Eisenberg wasn't immune to criticism either as he was rewarded with the Worst Supporting Actor title for his portrayal of Lex Luther in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

"And the reason you're giving it to me is because you're very upset that Trump won".

The film's sole prize went to Kristen Wiig who receives the title of worst supporting actress.

The one relatively positive prize is the Razzie Redeemer Award, which went this year to seemingly out-of-the-Hollywood-doghouse Mel Gibson, director of the critically acclaimed and financially successful Hacksaw Ridge.

Shockingly, none of the winners (listed below) were nominated for their respective categories at the Oscars.
