Winnie-the-Pooh: Blood and Honey was the highlight of Saturday’s annual Oscar spoof, the Golden Raspberry Awards – better known as the Razzies – according to multiple media reports.

The independent slasher film came away with worst picture, director, screenplay, screen couple and remake/rip-off/sequel in the tongue-in-cheek awards show, which highlighted the worst cinematic performances across 2023.

Directed and produced by British filmmaker Rhys Frake-Waterfield, and based on the beloved A. A. Milne children’s story, the film transforms cuddly characters Pooh and Piglet into bloodthirsty murderers who terrorise young women.

It has been described as “a rock-bottom joint that fails to meet even the most basic expectations set up by its conceptual gimmick” and received an astoundingly low 3 percent approval rating on film review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.

Actors Sylvester Stallone and Megan Fox meanwhile won Razzies for their work in the action film Expend4bles, and Fox took home an additional Golden Raspberry for her performance in Johnny & Clyde.

The Redeemer Award – earned by an actor who has gone on to do better things – went to Fran Drescher from The Nanny, who led last year’s 118-day actors strike.
