44th Annual Razzie Award Winners Announced Ahead Of Tonight’s Oscars Ceremony

The winners of the 44th annual Golden Raspberry Awards (or, “Razzies”) have been announced, and while two 2023 superhero movies – Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and Shazam! Fury of the Gods – were nominated in several categories, it was recent low-budget horror parody Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey that ended up sweeping the board with five “wins.”

Blood and Honey picked up Razzies for Worst Picture, Worst Screen Couple for Pooh and Piglet, and Worst Remake, Rip-Off, or Sequel, with Rhys Frake-Waterfield walking away with Worst Director and Worst Screenplay.

Despite being universally panned (3% on Rotten Tomatoes), the movie actually proved to be a pretty big hit, grossing $5 million worldwide against its $100,000 budget. Naturally, a sequel is on the way.

Elsewhere, Razzie regular Sylvester Stallone picked up his 12th award for Worst Supporting Actor for Expend4bles, while co-star Megan Fox won Worst Supporting Actress. The Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles star also won Worst Actress for horror-heist film Johnny & Clyde.

Oscar-winner Jon Voight won the Worst Actor Razzie for action flick Mercy, while SAG-AFTRA President Fran Drescher won the Razzie Redeemer Award “for her brilliant shepherding of the actors’ guild through a prolonged 2023 strike with a successful conclusion.”

The Razzies began back in 1981, and the Oscars parody show was seen as a bit of harmless fun for many years (Halle Barry even showed up to collect her Worst Actress award for Catwoman), but the annual “celebration” of the worst cinema has to offer has come in for a lot of backlash over the past few years.
