Batman vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice was compared to "putting your head in a beehive for two-and-a-half hours" by EricDSchneider.com, as well as "torching two of pop culture's greatest characters and using their ashes as its own personal urinal cake" by cinemixtape.com.
Hillary's America, the product of political commentator Dinesh D'Souza, was named Worst Picture and the woman who plays Clinton, Rebekah Turner, collected the gong for Worst Actress.
Eight of the nine Razzie categories are chosen by the 800 or so members of the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation, who earn voting rights by paying a $40 membership fee, with a $25 annual renewal.
However the movie missed on on the dubious honour of taking the top prize of worst film - which went to Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party, Dinesh D'Souza's documentary taking a not-so-positive look at the US Democrats.
A film criticising Hillary Clinton and superhero ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice were tied for the most Razzie awards this year.
"Hillary's America" took just $13.1 million at the box office, while "Batman v Superman" grossed $873.2 million.
"Hillary's America" won worst picture, worst actress, worst director and worst actor at the Razzies.
It was nominated for 5 Razzies, winning 4 of the awards.
The critical flop also won worst screen combo for dueling superheroes Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, as well as worst screenplay and worst remake, rip-off or sequel.
D'Souza in a video statement said, "This is absolutely fantastic". "My audience loves the fact that you hate me!"
He added: "The reason you are giving it to me is because you're very upset Trump won".
Nor was it all negativity, as Mel Gibson was named recipient of the year's "Razzie Redeemer" award thanks to 'Hacksaw Ridge'. The Ben Stiller helmed sequel picked up the only award given to a comedy by the Razzies this year, which was for Worst Supporting Actress, Kristen Wiig.
