Razzie Awards, all the nominations on the worst of the film season

The nominations for the next Academy Awards will be announced on Tuesday the twenty-fourth of January: as per tradition, they come the day before spread the nominations for the Razzie Awards, the awards that celebrate the worst of the film season that has just ended. Founded in 1981 by John JB Wilson with the name of Golden Raspberry Awards (label that can be translated as “golden raspberry awards“) the Razzie Awards were initially perceived as a simple parody of Oscars, but have carved out a prominent place for themselves in awards season over the years. Not that this undermined the sardonic tone of both the nominations and the ceremony. For example, it is enough to read the nominees for the “worst couple on the screen” category to understand how much the Razzie Awards are still linked to sarcasm. Above all, the Razzie Awards also have the merit of showing the internal contradictions in the world of Hollywoodwhich often rewards films and performers who are also candidates as the worst examples of the seventh art.

The raspberry was chosen as the prize because in the Anglo-Saxon context the raspberry was the fruit that was traditionally thrown against the stage when the public wanted to show their discontent. In short, it is the equivalent of eggs and tomatoes for Italy. Leading the nominations for the Razzies is there BlondeAndrew Dominik’s film premiered at the Venice Film Festival, which takes eight nominations, including that for the worst film, but not for the worst actress. Ana De Armas, who plays Marilyn Monroe on the big screen, can continue her run at the Academy Awards with no blemish on her resume. Since her exit, Blonde it was a film capable of splitting the critics: the accusations of machismo, problematic positions regarding abortion and sexual violence, plus a certain self-satisfaction on the part of the director, led the public not to particularly appreciate the film. So his presence among the Razzie nominations cannot be considered a twist. However, it is surprising to see a great tradesman like one of the worst actors Tom Hanks, positive character always much loved in Hollywood. Many nominations for too Morbiusfilm of the Marvel starring Jared Leto, which was panned by international critics and also poorly received by the public.
