43rd Razzie® Award Nominations

The 43rd Razzie nominations are out and three genre works are contenders in several categories. The first two are named in the press release:

The year’s most ridiculed movie, Morbius (with Worst Actor nominee Jared Leto in the title role) collected five nods. Disney’s wholly unnecessary (and oddly creepy) live action/CGI remake of Pinocchio pulled our voters’ strings to make it into six categories.

Morbius is based on a Marvel superhero character of the same name.

Tom Hanks, not ordinarily associated with stinkers, acted his way into two categories, as Worst Actor for his performance as Gepetto in Disney’s Pinocchio, and as Worst Supporting Actor as Col. Parker in the non-genre Elvis.

The third genre contender is The King’s Daughter, based on Vonda McIntyre’s historical fantasy The Moon and the Sun. It also yielded nominees for Worst Actress and Worst Supporting Actress.

The 43rd Razzie “winners” will be unveiled on Oscar Eve — Saturday, March 11th.

  1. Unfortunately, The King’s Daughter is also genre, based on Vonda McIntyre’s historical fantasy The Moon and the Sun.

  2. I didn’t recognize that one — I have revised the post, it’s an important addition, but as you say, an unfortunate one.

  3. I was shocked the Razzies nominated a 12-year-old. Glad other people were upset enough to raise hell on the socials.
