2023 Razzie Award Nominations: Jared Leto, Tom Hanks, Blonde

Awards season is upon us, and as Hollywood honors the best movies and shows of 2022,… Razzie Awards Highlighting the “worst” movies and actors of the year.

Andrew Dominik’s controversial biopic of Marilyn Monroe, “Blonde,” leads the field, with eight nominations. While Ana de Armas isn’t in the worst actress position, the movie was nominated for worst picture and Dominic for worst director and screenplay. Evan Williams and Xavier Samuel are also in the running for worst supporting actor, along with Maud Sun and Pete Davidson for Good Mourning and Oscar winner Tom Hanks for Elvis.

Hanks is also in the worst running cast for his role as Geppetto in Disney’s live-action film Pinocchio. Filling out the worst casting race is Colson Baker (aka Machine Gun Kelly, whose stellar comedy “Good Mourning” earned seven names in total), Davidson (for a voice role in Marmaduke), Sylvester Stallone (“Samaritan”) and Jared Leto. (“Morbius.”)

The Sony Pictures vampire film based on Marvel Villain failed at the box office with $39 million in its opening weekend in April. Leto-fronted was panned by critics and became an instant internet meme, receiving a re-release in June grossing just over $300,000.

Disney’s “Pinocchio” won six awards, “Morbius” received five nominations, and “The King’s Daughter” earned three awards.

Absent from this year’s list of nominations is the special award given to Bruce Willis, who appeared in 11 films in 2022. Last year, the Razzies created a category called “Worst Performance by Bruce Willis in a 2021 Film,” but the satirical awards organization canceled the award last March after That Willis’ family revealed that the “Die Hard” actor had aphasia, a language disorder caused by brain damage that affects a person’s ability to communicate.

But if you thought the Razzies would decide to be a little less soulful this time around, think again, as among this year’s nominees for Worst Actress is “Firestarter” star Ryan Kiera Armstrong, 12.
