Razzie Awards: ‘Blonde’ Named Worst Picture; Other “winners” include Tom Hanks, Jared Leto and the Razzies Themselves
Blonde has been “honored” with two Golden Raspberry Awards — aka the Razzies — which also bestowed an award upon themselves for the first time in the group’s history.
Andrew Dominik’s film, which led the Razzies with eight nominations, won worst picture of the year along with worst screenplay for Dominik. The Razzies called the film “misogynistic, salacious and fallacious” and said it “shamelessly exploits the memory of the late Marilyn Monroe.”
The Razzie Awards, which honor the worst of the year, are announced annually ahead of the Oscars ceremony, which takes place Sunday. By the way, Blonde star Ana de Armas is up for best actress in a leading role at the 2023 Academy Awards.
Razzie organizers also chastised themselves for nominating 12-year-old Ryan Kiera Armstrong as worst actress of the year. After being “put through the cyberworld blender,” as they put it, they subsequently removed her from the ballot and announced that new voting guidelines were being adopted that would preclude any performer or filmmaker who is a minor from being considered for a Razzie Award. So the Razzies replaced Armstrong with themselves “and won by a landslide.”
Tom Hanks was voted as the winner in two categories for his role in Elvis: worst supporting actor and worst screen combo for “Tom Hanks & His Latex-Laden Face (and That Ludicrous Accent).” (Elvis is up for eight Oscars at Sunday’s awards, including best makeup and hairstyling.)
Morbius also landed two awards: worst actor for Jared Leto and worst supporting actress for Adria Arjona. Other winners included “Disney’s Pinocchio (NOT del Toro’s!)” as worst remake, ripoff or sequel, and MGK (aka Colson Baker) and Mod Sun as worst directors for Good Mourning.
In more positive news, Colin Farrell was named the recipient of this year’s Razzie Redeemer Award, “given to a former Razzie contender who’s reclaimed their wings and emerged from Razzie hell, for going “from 2004 worst actor nominee [for Alexander the Great] to 2022 best actor Oscar frontrunner [for The Banshees of Inisherin].” This year’s other contenders were Mark Wahlberg for Father Stu and Val Kilmer for his Netflix documentary Val.
Organizers also released a video tied to the announcement of the winners. Watch it below.
