Batman v Superman

Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Jesse Eisenberg finally got some recognition for their work in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but maybe not the kind they were looking for.

All three actors took home Razzie Awards for their performances in last year’s DC blockbuster, with Eiesenberg crowned the Worst Supporting Actor of the year for his portrayal of Lex Luthor. Affleck and Cavill beat out stiff competition to take home the award for Worst Screen Combo, and the movie itself took home two awards for Worst Screenplay and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel.

Batman v Superman did not, however, take home the top prize for Worst Picture, losing out to Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party.

The Razzie Awards — otherwise known as the Golden Raspberry Awards — began in 1981 with the intention to celebrate the worst films of the year. The awards are announced every year on the eve of the Oscars, film’s biggest award show night.

Neither Affleck, Cavill or Eisenberg have said anything about their awards, but the teasing surrounding Batman v Superman since before the film was even released has been widely reported on. Affleck reportedly told people he felt humiliated by the reception the film got. Since the release of Batman v Superman, Affleck has dropped out of writing and directing his own stand-alone Batman movie for Warner Bros.
