  • The 2023 Razzies will air live on Saturday, March 11th
  • Early predictions are available for potential nominations and winners
  • Who do the opening odds favor winning in the major categories?

As is typically tradition, the 43rd Golden Raspberry Awards will air live one night ahead of the upcoming Academy Awards on Saturday, March 11th.

The 2023 Razzies will honor the worst of the worst from the film industry in the last year and bestow an award no movie wants to receive. However, the Razzies have a rich history dating back nearly half of a century and are among moviegoer’s most anticipated annual award shows.

Last year’s installment saw Netflix’s Diana: The Musical edge out the competition for Worst Picture of the Year, which also included Space Jam: A New Legacy and Infinite. The Razzies never take themselves too seriously and are designed strictly for entertainment purposes, guaranteeing to give viewers a good laugh in the midst of all the other award shows out there.

The opening 2023 Razzies odds have been revealed for the films favored to win the award for Worst Picture of the Year, and in what should come as no surprise to anyone unfortunate enough to see it, Morbius finds itself in the lead.

Morbius Favored to Win Worst Picture

Most movies released after any installment of the Razzies don’t stand a strong chance of winning the following year due to being so far out of the minds of moviegoers. Morbius, amazingly, has maintained a steady presence in the film industry in the six months since its release and for all the wrong reasons.

At +200, Morbius is the clear favorite to take home the award for Worst Picture of the Year and should be expected to stay in the lead up until the actual awards show in March. Any upcoming films could top it depending on how they’re received critically and how they perform at the box office, but Morbius was 2022’s biggest feature flop by a long shot and deserves to be recognized as such.

A big factor in Morbius’ success at the Razzies will be the many memes surrounding it, which was ironically what led to the film being (unsuccessfully) re-released in theaters in June for a short time. Now that Morbius has landed on Netflix, it can continue to ridiculed by millions until March when it likely wins this award.

365 Days: This Day, The Bubble, and Pinocchio Among Potential Dark Horses

Morbius’ only competition as of now (until more movies are released in the coming months) is 365 Days: This Day at +400 and The Man From Toronto at +600, respectively. Sure enough, both were Netflix exclusives and were horribly received by critics.

Their only issue is that enough viewers would to have had seen them in order to boost their odds of winning Worst Picture of the Year. Neither were awful enough to be entertaining to a certain extent much like Morbius was, and that’s the primary purpose of the Razzies at the end of the day.

The Bubble (+700) and Pinocchio (+900) are solid dark horses as well. They suffer from a similar problem in that both were movies released exclusively on streaming services and didn’t have nearly as much momentum as Morbius did upon its release to be recognized among the year’s most-panned pictures.

Don’t Worry Darling (+1500) and The Mystery of Marilyn Monroe: The Unheard Tapes (+1900) have both done poorly in recent weeks from a review standpoint, but it’s unknown if the backlash surrounding them will still be relevant come next year.

Moviegoers’ safest and best bet would when it comes to the 2023 Razzies would undoubtedly be Morbius, but it’s also wise to hold off until the event draws closer to see what other dreadful films hit theaters and streaming services a la Cats in 2019 and other last-minute stinkers.
