Colin Farrell won probably the best award at the Razzies this year

The least-coveted awards in Hollywood were announced this week as the Razzies came to town.

There were some big winners at the Razzie awards but mostly all for the wrong reasons. The Annual Golden Raspberry Awards run alongside the Oscars each year to honour the very worst Hollywood has to offer.


However, in a great turn of events, it looks like the Irish Hollywood takeover is enjoying even more success this year. The Banshees of Inisherin star and Best Actor nominee Colin Farrell probably came away with the best award you could win at the Razzies, the Redeemer Award.

The Dub was given the prize for redeeming himself for his leading role in 2004's critically-panned Alexander, where he was nominated for Worst Actor, by becoming the 2022 Best Actor Oscar frontrunner. If you're going to win a Razzie, that's probably the best of the lot.

The big winner on the night was Blonde, the Netflix film inspired by the life of Marilyn Monroe, which won Worst Picture and Worst Screenplay.

Starring Ana de Armas as Monroe in an Oscar-nominated performance, Blonde released last year to a very mixed reception, with some critics outraged by the fictionalised version of the iconic actress. The Razzies called the movie “misogynistic, salacious and fallacious” and said it “shamelessly exploits the memory of the late Marilyn Monroe.”

Andrew Dominik, who directed the film, shot back at critics a few months ago, saying that modern audiences only want to see "empowered women".

A bad night for Tom Hanks


Another big winner on the night was two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks for his role in the film Elvis. The actor won Worst Supporting Actor and Worst Screen Combo (for Hanks and his latex face).

Hanks “who’s spent his career stretching his acting capabilities to great success, went a bridge too far with his version of Col. Tom Parker in the otherwise excellent biopic, Elvis,” Razzie organizers said.

Hanks was also nominated in the Worst Actor category for his role as Geppetto in Disney’s Pinocchio. Luckily for him, he also shared the category with fellow Oscar winner Jared Leto for Morbius who came out top in the category. Leto’s co-star Adria Arjona received Worst Supporting Actress.
