Morbius Receives Multiple Razzie Nominations

The Golden Raspberry Awards (or the Razzies) have announced the nominations at this year's 43rd ceremony where they "honor" the worst films of 2022. The controversial Netflix film Blonde led the pack with eight nominations followed by the critically-panned comedy Good Mourning which has seven.

The Sony-Marvel film Morbius managed to nab five nominations in categories such as Worst Picture, Worst Actor for Jared Leto, Worst Supporting Actress for Adria Arjona, Worst Director for Daniel Espinosa, and Worst Screenplay.

Morbius will be competing for the top prize against other critically-panned films last year such as Blonde, Good Mourning, Pinocchio (the Disney live-action remake of the animated classic), and The King's Daughter.

Meanwhile, Leto, who is an Oscar winner himself, is nominated in the lead actor categories against other performers such as Machine Gun Kelly (Good Mourning), Peter Davidson (Marmaduke), Sylvester Stallone (Samaritan), and fellow Oscar winner Tom Hanks (Pinocchio).

Jurassic World Dominion, which is the lowest-rated entry in the trilogy based on the Rotten Tomatoes score, was able to receive three nominations in categories such as Worst Actress for Bryce Dallas Howard, Worst Remake/Rip-off/Sequel, and Worst Screenplay.

Looking at the list of nominations, the Razzie Awards is certainly continuing their tradition of giving notices to films that were panned by the critics and the audience. Whether you agree with the list or not, there is no doubt that we've seen these titles get discussed when it comes to the worst of last year.

Unlike the other awards season, this is the situation where the films don't want to "win" so it would be interesting to see which of them will end up prevailing and get the "honor" to join the Razzie hall of fame and "crowned" as the worst movie of 2022.
