The Worst Films of 2022 Include 'Blonde' and 'Morbius' According to the Razzie Awards
Tom Hanks also won two awards for 'Elvis', including worst screen combo with his latex-laden face.
March 12, 2023
If you endured Morbius in 2022, finding joy only in the 'it's morbin' time' meme, you weren't alone: the annual Golden Raspberry Awards also deemed it one of the past year's worst movies. Famously designed to recognise that all films can't be great, good or even watchable, the accolades always drop its winners for the year just before the Oscars — and as the current awards season comes to an end, it's that time again.
Morbius took home Worst Actor for Jared Leto and Worst Supporting Actress for Adria Arjona, with the supervillain flick tying with Blonde and Elvis for the most amount of wins: two apiece. Blonde, starring Ana de Armas in her Oscar-nominated role as Marilyn Monroe, was anointed 2022's Worst Picture and Worst Screenplay, while Baz Luhrmann's king of rock 'n' roll biopic Elvis notched up a pair of awards for Tom Hanks.
Firstly, the beloved actor nabbed the Worst Supporting Actor prize for playing Colonel Tom Parker. Secondly, he took out the Worst Screen Combo Award for his partnership with his latex-laden face (and, in the words of the Razzies, "that ludicrous accent").
Elsewhere, Disney's live-action Pinocchio — which isn't the same as Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio, as the Razzies also point out — won Worst Remake, Ripoff or Sequel. And, Machine Gun Kelly's stoner comedy Good Mourning collected the Worst Director accolade for Machine Gun Kelly and Mod Sun.
The Razzies also gave itself a gong: the Worst Actress Award. Back when its 44th nominations were announced, child actor Ryan Kiera Armstrong was among the Worst Actress contenders for Firestarter, which unsurprisingly sparked a backlash. So, the Razzies removed her from the nominees and took the prize itself instead.
"The Razzies, for the first time in their history, took a Razzie themselves. After their blunder of nominating someone who should not have been considered, the organisation was put through the cyberworld blender," the awards said in its winners announcement.
"They publicly apologised to the actress, changed the rules for anyone under 18, rescinded the nomination and put themselves in her place on the ballot — which won by a landslide," the Razzies continued.
These accolades aren't just about calling out terrible movies, or terrible aspects of them — a task that, like handing out all awards, is subjective. The Razzies also give a prize to someone it decides has redeemed themselves from their past Razzie-level work. This year's recipient: Colin Farrell, awarded for going from 2004 Worst Actor nominee to 2022 Best Actor Oscar frontrunner (for The Banshees of Inisherin).
