Razzies dishonor DeNiro, Dinesh D’Souza and “Independence Day: Resurgence”

alice2The 37th annual Golden Raspberry Awards, dissing the disasters of cinema, were announced this week. And the voters cooked up their usual blend of condemnation and dish on the year’s unworthiest films, scripts for films and actors in films.

So yeah, there’s a lot of hate for “Batman v. Superman,” “Dirty Grandpa, “Mother’s Day” and the DOA “Divergent” series.

Nice that they got around to ridiculing that fascist fraud, Dinesh D’Souza. The foreign-born Pied Piper of the lunatic right picked up five nominations. And Owen Wilson, Gerard Butler, Kate Hudson and everybody in “Collateral Beauty.” “Suicide Squad”? Yeah, kick a movie while it’s down.

Jared Leto’s much-ballyhoo’d take on The Joker gets its just desserts.

A rather tepid line-up of films and dishonorees, actually. “Gods of Egypt” seems hardly worth it. No hate for “Passengers” or “Why Him?” or “Sing” or “Trolls”?

 

The Razzies are handed out in gala roast/mockery meal on Feb. 25.

The full list of nominees is below. The dishonor, as ever, is in being nominated.
