‘Blonde’ leads this year’s Razzie awards with eight nominations

The awards organisers said the movie “‘explores’ the exploitation of Marilyn Monroe … by continuing to exploit her posthumously.”

Blonde, a Netflix biopic of Marilyn Monroe’s life, has received the most nominations at this year’s Razzies with eight, in their annual picks for the worst films and performances of the year. 

In their announcement, Razzie organisers said the movie “‘explores’ the exploitation of Marilyn Monroe … by continuing to exploit her posthumously.” Blonde landed nominations for worst picture, worst screenplay and worst director for Andrew Dominik, “whose work here says more about him than it does about his subject,” the Razzies said. The highly anticipated flick saw Ana de Armas play the role of the showbiz icon, yet even her performance couldn’t save the flick from ridicule.

Also landing multiple nominations 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 Mourning will also compete with Blonde for the honour of worst picture. The film earned a total of seven nominations 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 nominations; The King’s Daughter, which earned a total of three noms; and Morbius, with five total noms, including worst actor for Jared Leto.

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

The winners of the 43rd Razzie Awards will be announced March 11th, the day before the Oscars. Read below for the full list of nominations.
