Neither Batman nor Dinesh D'Souza could finagle their way out of a Razzie.
The annual Golden Raspberry Awards bestowed a tying 4 "honors" to each D'Souza's documentary "Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Celebration" and the superhero blockbuster "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice."
D'Souza's film was named the worst image of the year on Saturday, and the conservative author got each worst director (with co-director Bruce Schooley) and worst actor for playing himself. Worst actress went to Rebekah Turner who played Hillary Clinton.
"This is certainly excellent," stated D'Souza in a video statement. "My audience loves the truth that you hate me. Thank you."
Not to be outdone, Zack Snyder's $250 million "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" also picked up 4 "wins" which includes worst remake, worst screenplay and worst screen combo for its dueling stars Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. Jesse Eisenberg was also singled out as the worst supporting actor for his over-the-best portrayal of Superman baddie Lex Luthor.
Both films have been broadly panned by critics upon their release — D'Souza's film for being biased and sensationalist and Snyder's for its messiness. While D'Souza's outing is likely a one particular-time deal, there is additional to come in the DC Comic Book Universe from Snyder whose "Justice League" hits theaters in Nov.
An additional poorly received film, "Zoolander two," got away with only a single award, which went to Kristen Wiig for worst supporting actress.
The organization also bestowed the "redeemer" award to Mel Gibson, who was previously nominated for "The Expendables three" and this year has climbed back up to the ranks to additional prestigious awards. Gibson is nominated for a finest director Oscar for his Planet War II film "Hacksaw Ridge."
The Razzie Awards are determined by around 1,000 voting Razzie members from 25 nations, when Worst Screen Combo was voted on by "thousands" via a Rotten Tomatoes partnership.
