Blonde, Morbius and Elvis win Razzie Awards

The best of the worst in cinema were celebrated Saturday with the announcement of the winners of the 43rd Annual Razzie Awards.

Netflix's Marilyn Monroe inspired biopic Blonde, the critically panned Jared Leto film Morbius and Baz Luhrman's Elvis each won two awards, including one for Tom Hanks for his portrayal of Elvis' manager, Colonel Tom Parker.

Wellington's Andrew Dominik also won the award for Worst Screenplay.

This year the awards also gave themselves a trophy for their blunder in nominating a child in the worst actress category.

In January the folks behind the Golden Raspberry Awards (as the Razzies are formerly known) apologised and removed child actor Ryan Kiera Armstrong from their annual list of nominees.

Armstrong had been nominated for worst actress for her performance in Firestarter, and there was backlash given that Armstrong was only 12 years old at the time.

"Sometimes, you do things without thinking, Then you are called out for it. Then you get it. It's why the Razzies were created in the first place," Razzies co-founder John B. Wilson said in a statement at the time.

Below is list of winniers, which, as per tradition, is always released the day before the Academy Awards.
