It couldn’t have done it without you, Batman v Superman.

The 2017 Golden Raspberry award nominations, recognizing the worst in film, were announced this morning. And while Zoolander 2 led the pack with the most nominations at nine, genre fare as a whole filled the list. Batman v Superman got eight, Gods of Egypt had five, Independence Day: Resurgence had five, and Alice Through the Looking Glass had three.

True legitimacy doesn’t just look like Oscar nominations—it looks like Razzies, too. So, from the bottom of my heart, I’d like to congratulate science fiction and fantasy for being so bad last year that the only category they didn’t dominate was Worst Supporting Actress.

It should be noted that this year, the Razzies have six nominees in each category, not just five. According to the Razzie press release. this is because the “crop of cinematic crap in 2016 was so extensive.” Given the dominance of science fiction and fantasy on this list, it feels like the depths to which giant genre blockbusters sank to last year inspired the expansion. So congratulations, again, to genre breaking barriers and inspiring others.

Also, a congrats to Suicide Squad for only taking home two nominations. It’s older brother, Batman v Superman seems to have eaten up all of DC’s space on this list. Man, the older child just always over-achieves, doesn’t it?

Here’s the full list of Razzie nominations. Read it and marvel at how bad last year’s worst films were.
