New York — The much-derided superhero clash Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the far-too-late comedy sequel Zoolander 2 are the leading nominees for the 37th annual Razzie Awards.

Zoolander 2 drew nine nods and Batman v Superman landed eight in nominations announced on Monday for the worst films and performances of 2016. 

Both are up for worst picture, along with Gods of Egypt, Independence Day: Resurgence, Dirty Grandpa and the political documentary Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party.

Many nominees are typically acclaimed performers, including Robert De Niro (Dirty Grandpa), Naomi Watts (Divergent Series: Allegiant and Shut-In), Kristen Wiig (Zoolander 2), Johnny Depp (Alice Through the Looking Glass), Will Ferrell (Zoolander 2), Ben Affleck (Batman v Superman) and Julia Roberts (Mother's Day).
