The Razzie Awards state that Blonde, which stars Ana de Armas as Monroe, is a movie that movie-goers liked even less than critics did".
The Guardian criticised the movie as being "a bit much" and "full of historical distortions, rumors and pure fictional projection" among other things. "what Ana de Armas does in Blonde is nothing short of transformative". according to Todd Gilchrist's AV Club report.
While Andrew Dominik is nominated for worst director and is included in the category for worst screen couple, it is up for worst picture and worst script.
