Razzie Awards: ‘Blonde’ Leads Noms With Eight; Tom Hanks Lands Two Mentions for ‘Pinocchio,’ ‘Elvis’



The Golden Raspberry Awards — aka the Razzies — have been bestowed Blonde with eight nominations, including worst picture, in their annual picks for the worst films and performances of the year.

In their announcement, Razzie organizers said the movie “’explores’ the exploitation of Marilyn Monroe … by continuing to exploit her posthumously.” Blonde also landed noms for worst screenplay and worst director for Andrew Dominik, “whose work here says more about him than it does about his subject,” the Razzies said.

Also landing multiple noms are Tom Hanks and Pete Davidson, who are both up for worst actor and worst supporting actor. Hanks was cited for his portrayal of Gepetto in Disney’s Pinocchio and his “latex-laden, ludicrously accented portrayal of Col. Tom Parker in the otherwise critically acclaimed Elvis,” while Davidson was singled out for his voice role in Marmaduke and his cameo in Good Mourning.

Good Morning, incidentally, will “complete” with Blonde for the dubious honor of worst picture. The film earned a total of seven “dings,” with the Razzies calling it “a laugh-free stoner comedy achieving the rare feat of scoring a perfect ZERO on Rotten Tomatoes.”

Also up for worst picture is “Disney’s wholly unnecessary (and oddly creepy) live action/CGI remake of Pinocchio,” which landed a total of six noms; The King’s Daughter, which earned a total of three noms; and Morbiuswith five total noms, including worst actor for Jared Leto.

Colson Baker (aka Machine Gun Kelly) also landed multiple noms with four mentions for Good morning: worst actor, worst screen couple (with Mod Sun), worst director and worst screenplay (with Mod Sun).

The Razzies also bestowed multiple mentions for the two sequels released in 2022 to the erotic thriller 365 Days365 Days: This Day and The Next 365 Days — including worst remake/rip-off/sequel and worst screen couple.

Also up for worst screen couple are “Both Real Life Characters in the Fallacious White House Bedroom Scene”. Blonde“Andrew Dominik & His Issues with Women” for Blondeand “Tom Hanks & His Latex-Laden Face (and Ludicrous Accent)” in Elvis.

Organizers also released a video tied to the announcement. Watch it below.
