Razzie Awards: ‘Expend4bles’ Leads Nominations

Expend4bles leads the nominees for the Golden Raspberry Awards — aka the Razzies — which were unveiled Monday morning.

The film earned seven nominations for the Razzie Awards, which honor the worst of the year and are announced annually ahead of the Oscars noms announcement, which takes place Tuesday morning.

Expend4bles is one of five movies competing for “worst picture” of the year. The nominees in that category, along with the Razzies’ comments, are:

The Exorcist: Believer: “a 50-years-later remake/rip-off that was horrifying in unintended ways”

Expend4bles: “another installment of a franchise that’s fading faster than Razzie ‘winner’ Donald Trump’s mental acuity”

Meg 2: The Trench: “a fishy tale about a snarky shark that flopped across all seven seas”

Shazam! Fury of the Gods: “one of 2023’s several comic book movies failing to save the superhero genre”

Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey: “a defamation (and defecation) on two of the most beloved Kiddie Lit characters, ‘re-imagining’ the huggable denizens of the Hundred Acre Wood as vicious, cannibal serial killers”

Among the acting contenders are former Oscar winners Jon Voight, Russell Crowe and Helen Mirren, as well as Razzie “Repeat Offenders” Sylvester Stallone, Megan Fox and Jennifer Lopez.

Noms were selected in nine categories by Razzie voters, comprising “1,179 movie buffs, film critics and journalists from 49 U.S. states and two dozen foreign countries.” The “winners” of the 44th annual Razzies will be announced March 9, the night before the Oscars.

“After strikes, lingerings of a worldwide plague and a general sense of universal agoraphobia, the decline of the cinematic experience goes without saying,” organizers said of all the nominees. “Thankfully, a doll pic and a bomb movie jump-started the Industry, which still left behind a trail of Pooh for the Razzies to pick up!”

Last year, Andrew Dominik’s Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde led the Razzie noms with eight, winning worst picture of the year along with worst screenplay for Dominik.

As is their annual tradition, organizers also released a video tied to the announcement of the winners. Watch it below.
