Netflix movie 'Blonde' leads Razzie award nominations

The Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde, which was released on Netflix in September 2022, is leading the 2023 Razzie Award nominations with eight nods.

Nominated for Worst Picture, Worst Remake, Ripoff or Sequel, Worst Director and Worst Screenplay. In addition, the film’s stars also feature heavily in the nominations, with Xavier Samuel and Evan Williams each being nominated for Worst Supporting actor, whilst “Both real-life characters in the fallacious White House bedroom scene” and “Andrew Dominik and his issues with women” have been nominated for Worst Screen Couple. 

Joining Blonde in the Worst Picture category is Disney’s live-action Pinocchio remake, Good Mourning starring Machine Gun Kelly, the fantasy flick The King’s Daughter and the Jared Leto-led Marvel flop Morbius. Just behind Blonde is Good Mourning with seven nods, a comedy, stoner flick starring Becky G, Megan Fox, Dove Cameron, Gata, Avril Lavigne and many more. 

Tom Hanks is another notable name on the list of nominations, with the multi-Academy Award-winning actor being given the nod for Worst Actor, Worst Supporting Actor and Worst Screen Couple for “his latex-laden face (and ludicrous accent)”. 

Working as a satirical version of the Academy Awards, the parody ceremony was founded in 1981 and runs one day before the Oscars. Shining light on the worst of Hollywood in the past 12 months, last year’s winner of Worst Picture, taking home the notorious Golden Raspberry, was the Netflix disaster Diana: The Musical, a re-telling of the tragic life of Diana, Princess of Wales featuring some horrid dance numbers. 

Take a look at the full list of nominations for the 2023 Razzies below:
