Every year during Oscars season, when the film industry celebrates its finest achievements, an alternative awards ceremony shines a spotlight on the opposite end of the spectrum – the Razzie Awards.

Established in 1981, the 44th iteration of these infamous “honors” saw nominees like Jason Statham, Vin Diesel, and Ana de Armas vying for the title of worst actor and actress.

Nominated for the dubious distinction of worst film of 2023 were titles such as:

Expend4bles

Meg 2: The Trench

Shazam! Fury of the Gods

and the lackluster “Exorcist: Believer

However, in a blow to the iconic figure now in the public domain, Mickey Mouse, the horror flick “Winnie the Pooh: Blood & Honey” clinched the Razzie for worst picture, as announced by the awards association on Saturday.

In the acting categories, Academy Award-winner Jon Voight earned the title of worst actor for his role in “Mercy,” while Sylvester Stallone was awarded worst supporting actor for “Expend4bles.”

Megan Fox, known for her role in “Transformers” and her poetic endeavors, managed to secure two Razzies for worst actress and supporting actress for her performances in “Johnny & Clyde” and “Expend4bles” respectively.

The horror rendition of “Winnie the Pooh” swept up four additional awards, including worst screen couple for Pooh and Piglet as “Blood-Thirsty Slasher/Killers (!)” according to the Razzie announcement.

Despite their humor, the Razzies, also dubbed the Golden Raspberry Awards, have not been without controversy. In the previous year, the organization faced criticism for nominating then-12-year-old Ryan Kiera Armstrong for her lead role in the “Firestarter” remake, leading to an apology.

Notably, in 2010, Sandra Bullock attended the Razzie ceremony – the same weekend she won an Oscar for “The Blind Side” – to accept her worst actress award for the comedy “All About Steve.” She brought along a cartload of DVDs of the film, co-starring Bradley Cooper, urging Razzie voters to watch it and arguing that it wasn’t as bad as perceived. This incident serves as a reminder that film, like any art form, is entirely subjective, from the Oscars to the Razzies.
