It's that time of the year again, my friends! It's awards season, and all the focus is on the 89th Academy Awards ceremony Sunday, Feb. 26. But the Saturday night before the Oscars is even a better awards night; the 36th Annual Razzies awards for the 'worst' in movies, and our friends over at MyBookie have posted odds for all categories.
Since everybody knows about the Oscars and people may not be fully aware of the Razzies, I'm here to break down the Razzie Awards plus put some extra cash in your wallet. Some of the Razzie categories have huge favorites and some look to be a coin toss, and in the past the Razzies have had some major upsets.

Last year I went 3-2 in the Razzies, and this year I'm hoping for another successful Razzie Awards because I could use some extra cash after having watched all of these horrible movies. Awards shows like this are such a great betting option because a sharp handicapper can easily score a big profit. But, of course, most offshore books will have low limits on these award shows.
2017 Razzies Awards Odds - Provided by MyBookie
Odds to Win Worst Picture
Batman v Superman -190
Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party +330
Zoolander No. 2 +330
Independence Day: Resurgence 8-1
Dirty Grandpa 16-1
God's of Egypt 12-1
(Last year winner: Fantastic Four, Odds +350)
Batman v Superman grossed more than $350 million dollars, and I didn't think it was that bad of a movie so to make it the -190 favorite seems a bit odd. Hillary's America and Zoolander No. 2 were just awful films, and either one of these movies will win Worst Picture. I have to pick one, but I will have action on both, but for right now I'm choosing Zoolander No. 2 at +330 for the Razzie.
Odds to win Worst Actor
Ben Affleck (Batman v Superman) -190
Robert de Niro (Dirty Grandpa) +400
Dinesh D'Souza (Hillary's America) +400
Ben Stiller (Zoolander 2) +400
Gerard Butler (God's of Egypt) 12-1
Henry Cavill (Batman v Superman) 16-1
(Last year winner: Jamie Dornan - Fifty Shades of Grey, Odds +300)
I can't believe I'm going to type this, but Robert de Niro in Dirty Grandpa was pretty bad. I thought Ben Affleck was just okay as Batman (wife hated him), but I just can't get Zoolander No. 2 out of my head and Ben Stiller was brutal to watch. Getting Ben Stiller at +400 for Worst Actor seems like a steal, and we could easily see Zoolander No. 2 go two-for-two Saturday night Feb. 25.
Odds to win Worst Actress
Tyler Perry (Boo! A Madea Halloween) -190
Megan Fox (TMNT 2) +250
Becky Turner (Hillary's America) +650
Shailene Woodley (The Divergent Series: Allegiant) 7-1
Naomi Watts (The Divergent Series: Allegiant) 11-1
Julia Roberts (Mothers Day) 12-1
(Last year winner: Dakota Johnson - Fifty Shades of Grey, Odds -110)
Last year we had no problem cashing Worst Actress with Dakota Johnson. but this year I feel this category is a two-person race. It's pretty funny that they have Tyler Perry in this category, and I can't complain that he is the favorite at -190, but I'm fading the favorite in this category. Megan Fox at +250 is my choice, and I say grab this number now because wouldn't shock me to see her as the favorite closer to the event.
Odds to Win Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel
Batman v Superman -190
Independence Day: Resurgence +330
Zoolander No. 2 +380
Fifty Shades of Black 9-1
Alice Through the Looking Glass 10-1
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 12-1
(Last year winner: Fantastic Four - No Odds)
This category has to be the toughest category in the 2017 Razzie Awards, and it wouldn't shock me to see a double-digit underdog win. I have a feeling Batman v Superman wins this award, but I believe Independence Day, Zoolander, or Alice Through the Looking Glass comes away as the Razzie winner. Really wanted to type Alice Through the Looking Glass, but I see Independence Day: Resurgence is the Razzie winner.
Odds to Win Worst Screen Combo
Ben Affleck & His BFF (Batman v Superman) -190
Entire Cast of Once Respected Actors (Collateral Beauty) +300
Ben Stiller and His BFF Owen Wilson (Zoolander No. 2) +400
Tyler Perry & Same Old Worn Out Wig (Boo! A Medea Halloween) +600
Johnny Depp & Vomitously Vibrant Costume (Alice Through the Looking Glass) 12-1
Any 2 Egyptian Gods of Egypt 16-1
(Last year winner: Jamie Dornan & Dakota Johnson - Fifty Shades of Grey, Odds -200)
Last year the heavy favorite won this award, but this year I see the favorite going down again. It's no secret that I hated Zoolander No. 2, and getting Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson at +400 for Worst Screen Combo seems like a steal and I'm shocked they were not the favorite in this category. Watch out for Johnny Depp in this category, and getting him at 12-1 is also a good long shot.
Odds to Win Worst Supporting Actor
Jesse Eisenberg (Batman v Superman) -220
Jared Leto (Suicide Squad) +330
Johnny Depp (Alice Through the Looking Glass) +580
Owen Wilson (Zoolander No. 2) 9-1
Will Ferrell (Zoolander No. 2) 10-1
Nicolas Cage (Snowden) 12-1
(Last year winner: Eddie Redmayne - Jupiter Ascending, Odds +500)
This category saw an upset last year as Josh Gad from Pixels and the Wedding Ringer was the big favorite, but this year I do see Batman v Superman getting a Razzie. Jesse Eisenberg was not my favorite choice to play Lex Luthor, and his portrayal was awful. Jesse Eisenberg walks away with the Razzie, and I see this -220 climbing higher.
Odds to Win Worst Supporting Actress
Aubrey Plaza (Dirty Grandpa) -155
Kristen Wiig (Zoolander No. 2) +200
Kate Hudson (Mother's Day) +450
Julianne Hough (Dirty Grandpa) 8-1
Jane Seymour (Fifty Shades of Grey) 12-1
Sela Ward (Independence Day: Resurgence) 12-1
(Last year winner: Kaley Cuoco - Alvin the Chipmunks, Odds +100)
Here is another tough category, and when these actresses were announced for Worst Supporting Actress my two top choices were Aubrey Plaza (-155) and Julianne Hough (8-1). Yes, from the same movie because Dirty Grandpa was a horrible movie, but my choice for this category is Hough at a nice price of 8-1. Plaza is deserving, but I can't deny the nice 8-1 number with Miss Hough.
