Tom Hanks gets three Razzie nominations for Elvis and Pinocchio performances

His recent hit film Elvis is an Oscars frontrunner, but Tom Hanks was left all shook up on Monday as he earned three nominations from the Razzies, which “celebrate” the year’s worst films.

Hanks was shortlisted by the tongue-in-cheek awards for his roles as Presley’s manager in the rock ‘n’ roll biopic Elvis, and Geppetto in Disney’s critically slated live-action Pinocchio remake.

A press release from organisers of the Razzies dubbed Hanks’ Elvis role as “2022’s most widely derided performance”, and piled on a further nomination for Worst Screen Couple to Tom Hanks & His Latex-Laden Face (and Ludicrous Accent).

While Elvis and its star Austin Butler have generally received acclaim, Hanks’s appearance as his exploitative manager Colonel Tom Parker was panned by many critics.

A review in The New York Times said Hanks appears “with a mountain of prosthetic goo, a bizarre accent and a yes-it’s-really-me twinkle in his eyes”, and portrays Parker as “part small-time grifter, part full-blown Mephistopheles”.

Disney’s Pinocchio was among five Worst Picture nominees for the annual Golden Raspberry — or Razzie — awards, as was the controversial Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde.

Also in the running were regular Razzies punching bag Jared Leto, and his Spider-Man spin-off Morbius.

Only last year, Leto was named Worst Supporting Actor for his flamboyant performance — complete with a campy Italian accent and heavy prosthetics — in House of Gucci.

The Razzies are usually announced the day before the Oscars, serving to mock the following night’s self-congratulatory Tinseltown back-slapping.

But last year, the Razzies themselves were left embarrassed, after jokingly creating a new category labelled Worst Performance by Bruce Willis in a 2021 Movie to accommodate all of the former Die Hard star’s questionable output.

Organisers rescinded the prize after his family revealed Willis suffered from a cognitive illness called aphasia, a disorder that affects language expression and comprehension and leaves a person unable to communicate properly.

Nominations for this year’s Academy Awards will be announced on Tuesday.
