Oscar winners Tom Hanks (66) and Jared Leto (51) are now recipients of Hollywood's ridiculous awards. The distributors of the "Golden Raspberries" or "Razzies" announced the "winners" of the not-too-serious prizes in a video message. Traditionally, the "Razzies" slander awards are announced the day before the Oscars.
Leto won the Worst Actor award for his role as the vampire-like anti-hero in the comic book adaptation Morbius. Hanks got two "razzias" - for his supporting role as music executive Tom Parker in the biopic "Elvis" and for the category "Worst Screen Couple" - for Hanks along with his latex face mask and his "ridiculous" accent in "Elvis ".
Double abuse for "Blonde": The Netflix biopic about Marilyn Monroe by director and screenwriter Andrew Dominik outperformed the competition in the categories "Worst Movie" and script.
Colin Farrell wins the 'Redeemer' award
This time, the ridiculous award for "worst actress" did not go to one person, but to the distributors themselves. They were reacting to the controversy in January, when they nominated twelve-year-old Ryan Kiera Armstrong ("Firestarter"), among others. After heavy criticism, they reversed this and introduced an age limit of at least 18 years.
This year's "Razzies Redeemer Award" went to Irish star Colin Farrell. The "Redeemer Award" is intended for those who make up for past failures through good cinematic performance. According to the jury, Farrell (46) has now achieved this with his role in the tragic comedy “The Banshees Of Inisherin”, which could also bring the actor the Oscar for best leading actor on Sunday. In 2005 he was nominated in the "Razzies" as the worst actor for the monumental film "Alexander".
The "Razzies" were created by filmmaker John Wilson as a counterpart to the glamorous Oscars. According to earlier information from the group, a good thousand members in the USA and other countries vote on the ridiculous prices.
