‘Blonde’ and ‘Good Mourning’ top race for Razzies

LOS ANGELES (CNS) — On the eve of the highly coveted Oscar nominations being announced, the lowly coveted 2022 Golden Raspberry Award nods were revealed Monday — with “Blonde” garnering a leading eight “worst” noms, and “Good Mourning” hauling in an only slightly less inglorious seven.

“Winners” of the 43rd Razzies will be announced on March 11, a day before the 95th Academy Awards ceremonies.

“Blonde” captured Razzie nominations for worst picture, along with two “worst” noms for supporting actor; two for screen couples; and one each for director, screenplay and remake, according to the Golden Raspberry Foundation, which presents the Razzies.

“Called a ‘biopic that’s not a biopic,’ by its makers, it ‘explores’ the exploitation of Marilyn Monroe … by continuing to exploit her posthumously,” Razzie organizers said.

“Blonde’s” Andrew Dominik drew a double ding for director and screenplay — and also got a nod for worst screen couple, along with “his issues with women.”

“Good Mourning” — described as “a laugh-free stoner comedy achieving the rare feat of scoring a perfect ZERO on Rotten Tomatoes”  — drew “worst” nominations for picture, actor, director, screenplay, screen couple and two for supporting actor.

Colson Baker, aka Machine Gun Kelly, has four chances to take home a Razzie for his work on “Good Mourning” — a solo nod for worst actor and shared nominations with co-director and co-writer Mod Sun for worst director, worst screenplay and worst screen couple.

Next with six nominations is — no lie — “Disney’s Pinocchio,” described as “wholly unnecessary (and oddly creepy).” It took nods for worst picture, actor, supporting actress, remake, director and screenplay.

Some of Hollywood’s biggest names also landed on the 2022 Dishonor Roll, including Sylvester Stallone (worst actor for “Samaritan”) and Tom Hanks (worst supporting actor for his “latex-laden, ludicrously accented portrayal of Col. Tom Parker in the otherwise critically acclaimed ‘Elvis.”‘)
