Hillary's America has an RT rating of 4%

The other nominees:
Batman v Superman - 27%
Dirty Grandpa - 10%
Gods of Egypt - 16%
Independence Day: Resurgence - 31%
Zoolander No. 2 - 23%

Before speaking about something, do some research. They DID recognize one of the worst films of the year, and certainly the worst of their nominees. Perhaps it might be a touch political, but the Razzies have NEVER been about recognizing the worst, they've been about attacking social norms, otherwise how could you defend their selection of films like Batman v Superman, ID:R, and Zoolander, when there are at least a dozen other films that had lower scores throughout the year.

No one is above politics, as you have clearly shown, so stop trying to make this all about everyone being against your personal choice of politics. Go back to enjoying the fruits of your labor with the Trump presidency.

They've become a political commentary award rather than the fun "let's pick the best of the worst" that they once were. Too bad, because I like idea of an awards ceremony for the worst movies.

2016 Razzies

(EW) It was Batman v Superman versus Hillary’s America at the 2017 Golden Raspberry Awards, a.k.a. The Razzies. The winners, highlighting the “cinematic sludge” of the past year, were announced the day before the Oscars wherein both films were “awarded” four titles.

Political documentary Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party, pegged as revealing “the sordid truth about Hillary and the secret history of the Democratic Party,” earned the not-so-coveted prize of Worst Picture. Dinesh D’Souza, the conservative political commenter behind the film, won both Worst Actor and Worst Director, while “the ‘actress’ who plays Hillary Clinton” won Worst Actress.

The only categories left were for Worst Supporting Actress, going to Kristen Wiig in Zoolander No. 2, and the Razzie Redeemer Award, going to Mel Gibson for directing Hacksaw Ridge.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, directed by Man of Steel‘s Zack Snyder, earned Worst Supporting Actor for Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor, Worst Screen Combo for Ben Affleck’s Batman and Henry Cavill’s Superman, Worst Screenplay for Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer, and Worst Remake, Rip-off, or Sequel. The DC superhero face-off took in a worldwide total of $873.3 million, after facing an onslaught of negative reviews.
