Hanks gets nods for worst actor, worst supporting actor
Morbin’ Time is over, folks. ● After horrid reviews and a box- office bloodbath, Jared Leto’s vampiric antihero “Morbius” got another nail in the coffin with Monday’s Razzie Awards announcement, earning five nominations including worst picture and worst actor ( Leto). ● But the memeable Marvel spinoff was hardly the Razzies’ most hated film of last year. That would be Netflix’s “Blonde,” a historical fiction drama about Marilyn Monroe ( played by Ana de Armas) that polarized critics with its gratuitous nudity, sexual violence and seemingly anti- abortion stance. The film topped the nominations with eight, including worst picture, worst director ( Andrew Dominik) and worst screenplay.
De Armas, who has picked up Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Awards nods for her performance, was excluded from the worst actress lineup.
Tom Hanks wasn’t so lucky. The A- lister received nominations for worst actor (“Disney’s Pinocchio,” playing Geppetto in a live- action remake) and worst supporting actor (“Elvis,” portraying Colonel Tom Parker opposite Austin Butler’s Presley). The two- time Oscar winner was also recognized in the worst screen couple category, along with his facial prosthetics and “ludicrous” accent in “Elvis.”
Other stars to incur the Razzies’ wrath were Diane Keaton (“Mack & Rita”), Penelope Cruz (“The 355”), Sylvester Stallone (“Samaritan”) and Colson Baker, better known by his stage name Machine Gun Kelly (“Good Mourning”). Baker’s pal Pete Davidson also picked up two worst performance nominations for “Good Mourning” and “Marmaduke.”
The Golden Raspberry Awards – or Razzies for short – are voted on by roughly 1,000 members ( a mix of moviegoers and those in the film industry), who pick what they deem the most dreadful that cinema has to offer. Now in its 43rd year, the show will announce its “winners” on March 11, the night before the Oscars.
