Horror remake of ‘Winnie the Pooh’ wins at 44th Razzie Awards

One day before Hollywood celebrates its finest achievements, the 44th annual Razzie Awards took center stage, honoring the worst in filmmaking from the past year. Surprisingly, the horror remake of a beloved children’s classic, Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey, emerged as the leading winner, taking home five coveted Razzie trophies.

According to MynewsLA, The film, which puts a grisly spin on the iconic Hundred Acre Woods characters, won the coveted Worst Picture award. It also earned dishonors for Worst Screen Couple (“Pooh & Piglet as the blood-thirsty slasher/killers”), Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel, Worst Director, and Worst Screenplay for Rhys Frake-Waterfield.

The Sylvester Stallone action sequel Expend4bles also took home two Razzies, with Stallone winning Worst Supporting Actor and Megan Fox claiming Worst Supporting Actress. Fox had a double dose of dishonor, also being named Worst Actress for her role in Johnny & Clyde.

On a more positive note, Fran Drescher was awarded the Razzie Redeemer Award, an honor bestowed upon past Razzie winners or contenders “who have since gone on to better things.” Drescher, the president of the SAG-AFTRA actors’ union, was recognized by the Golden Raspberry Foundation “for her brilliant shepherding of the actors’ guild through a prolonged 2023 strike, with a highly successful conclusion.”

The Razzie Awards, announced annually the day before the Academy Awards ceremony, serve as a lighthearted counterpoint to the Oscars, celebrating the worst and most cringe-worthy performances and films of the year. While some might take offense, the Razzies offer a humorous perspective on the industry’s missteps and provide a platform for filmmakers to improve their craft.
