Default Award season 2023: Worst and Best - The Razzies and The Oscars

Yes, I *know* it's hideously early, and the MODS are going to be wringing their hands in anger, but... 'TERRIFIER 2' HAS BEEN SUBMITTED BY BLOODY DISGUSTING FOR OSCAR CONSIDERATION!

We Have Officially Submitted ‘Terrifier 2’ for Oscar Consideration Because It’s Too Funny Not To / Bloody Disgusting
"The most vomit-inducing movie since The Exorcist with the most shocking effects sequence since An American Werewolf in London is coming for the Academy Awards!

As you may have heard, the same fans who made Damien Leone‘s Terrifier 2 a box office hit this Halloween season are demanding Oscar recognition for the little indie that could.

No, it will never actually happen. Yes, it’s a total goof. But you know what? The thought of having members of the Academy endure an extreme unrated horror movie that they would otherwise consider beneath them? That’s just too hilarious of an opportunity to pass up.

So, we’re listening to the fans. Everything about Terrifier 2 has been fan-driven every step of the way, and if you want to have a little more fun with this one we’re happy to oblige.

With that said… it’s now official…


In all seriousness, it’s absolutely insane that this ultra-slasher is actually playing in theaters across the country. The film managed to escape into mainstream theaters completely uncut and gory as can be. We broke all the rules and fans rewarded us with tremendous support that shook the system to its core. And we’ve got the vomit stories to prove it. Meant to play in only a handful of theaters over the course of a single weekend, Terrifier 2 just expanded to 1,500 theaters for Halloween weekend – the widest release for unrated horror… ever?!

Terrifier 2 is about as anti-Hollywood as you can get and yet, it’s hanging with the big boys. To date, the gruesome unrated slasher sequel has sliced into more than $8 million in theaters, and not a penny of that could’ve been made without YOU, the fans of extreme horror who believed in Art the Clown’s epic return as much as we did when we first laid eyes on this beast.

Tag @TheAcademy on Twitter with the hashtag #OscarsForArt to take part in our fan-driven – and completely and utterly not serious at all – Oscar campaign for Terrifier 2!

Let’s make some more noise. Let’s see how many members of the Academy we can get to pay attention to a horror movie that precisely none of them would ever watch on their own."

The nominations for the 2023 Razzies have been announced:

"Leading the pack of cinematic mongrels with 8 nominations is Blonde, which movie-goers liked even less than critics did. Called a 'biopic that’s not a biopic,' by its makers, it 'explores' the exploitation of Marilyn Monroe… by continuing to exploit her posthumously. In addition to Worst Picture, it’s up for Worst Screenplay and Worst Director, both by Andrew Dominik, whose work here says more about him than it does about his subject.

Copping 7 dings is Good Mourning, a laugh-free stoner comedy achieving the rare feat of scoring a perfect ZERO on Rotten Tomatoes. The year’s most ridiculed movie, Morbius (with Worst Actor nominee Jared Leto in the title role) collected five nods. Disney’s wholly unnecessary (and oddly creepy) live action/CGI remake of Pinocchio pulled our voters’ strings to make it into six categories. Taking the pole position for Worst Supporting Actor is 2022’s most widely derided performance, Tom Hanks’ latex-laden, ludicrously accented portrayal of Col. Tom Parker in the otherwise critically acclaimed Elvis."
