Razzie Awards 2024: Huge blow for Russell Crowe as he cops worst actor nomination for his


Russell Crowe is among several stars to receive a ‘worst actor’ nomination in this year’s Golden Raspberry Awards.

The Razzies are given out each year to performers and movies that are deemed the ‘worst’ of the year, in direct contrast to the Oscars.

The Australian actor, 59, is nominated for his lead role as the ‘James Bond of exorcists’ in the controversial film The Pope’s Exorcist.

Crowe delivers a chilling performance as the late Father Gabriele Amorth, chief exorcist of the religious institution, who died in 2016 after becoming one of the most famous and respected exorcists in the Catholic Church.

Other stars named in the Worst Actor category were Vin Diesel for Fast X, along with Chris Evans for Ghosted, Jason Statham for Meg 2: The Trench and Jon Voight for Mercy.

The Razzie Awards’ satirical annual ceremony is preceded by its opposite, the Academy Awards, by four decades. 

In 2023, following backlash for nominating 12-year-old Ryan Kiera Armstrong for Worst Actress, the Golden Raspberry Awards rescinded the nomination and said individuals under age 18 would no longer be nominated. 

Andrew Dominik’s Blonde starring Ana de Armas led the competition with eight nominations, going on to win the prize for worst picture in 2023.
