Netflix Movie ‘Blonde’ Roasted With Eight Razzie Nominations
LOS ANGELES: “Blonde,” a biopic that explores the exploitation of Marilyn Monroe, led this year’s Razzie nominations with eight nods, including one for worst picture, while multiple Oscar winner Tom Hanks landed in the race for worst actor and worst supporting actor.
In their 43rd year, the Razzies deliver tough love to movies, screenplays, directors and more with critical hits meant to provide humorous counterpoint to the Oscars.
“Blonde” received a Razzie nomination for Worst Picture, two nominations for Worst Supporting Actor, two for Worst On-Screen Couples, as well as nods for Worst Remake, Worst Director and Worst Screenplay. .
New York Times film critic Manohla Dargis wrote, “Considering all the indignities and horrors that Marilyn Monroe has endured for her 36 years, it’s a relief that she didn’t have to endure the vulgarities of ‘Blonde’, the latest necrophiliac entertainment to exploit it.
The Razzies also didn’t favor Hanks this season, naming him Worst Actor as Geppetto in Disney’s “Pinocchio” and Worst Supporting Actor as Colonel Tom Parker in “Elvis.”
