Tom Hanks receives 2 Razzies for his role in ‘Elvis’ biopic

Tom Hanks, who won an Oscar for his performance as Elvis Presley’s manager in the biopic “Elvis,” won the Razzies’ worst supporting performer and worst screen combo awards on Saturday.

Every year, the parody awards honor the worst productions and acts. The most terrible performance by a supporting actor this year, according to its voters, was Hank in the part of Elvis Presley’s manager. The decision to cast Hanks in that character has been criticized as the movie’s biggest mistake.

Hanks is described as having “a mountain of prosthetic goo, a strange accent, and a yes-it’s-really-me twinkle in his irises” in a New York Times review.

There are eight Oscar nominations for the movie starring Austin Butler as Elvis Presley on Sunday. The finest actor nominee is Butler.

Tom Hanks and His Latex-Laden Face (and Ludicrous Accent) received the “worst screen couple” title from the Razzies voters.

He did not, however, win the worst performer prize, which went to Jared Leto for his performance in the Spider-Man spinoff “Morbius.” The worst film of the year was “Blond,” a Netflix biopic about Marilyn Monroe.
