“No, I haven’t seen it,” Dench told BBC presenter John Wilson. “I didn’t read anything about the response to it, nor have I seen it.”
The James Bond star said she was “aware of the response only slightly, I think people have been rather kind to me.”
She said she did not typically read reviews, “but you kind of know yourself about something, I think.”
Dench said she had not realized she was playing “this wonderful show cat,” who reminded her of a cat she once had, called Carpet. “I thought I was playing a really kind of clapped-out old mangy old cat who didn’t have much fur,” she said.
It also picked up nominations for Worst Picture; Worst Director for Tom Hooper; Worst Screenplay and Worst Screen Combo for “Any Two Half-Feline/Half-Human Hairballs” and “Jason Derulo & His CGI-Neutered ‘Bulge.'”
Dench laughed at the news she was nominated for a Razzie, saying: “Oh well, that will be good.
“As far as I know, that’s a first.”
She is also up against fellow Oscar winner Jessica Chastain for Worst Supporting Actress, for her role in “Dark Phoenix.”
“Joker” is the only movie to be nominated for both a Razzie and an Academy Award. Jennifer Lopez and Adam Sandler have been nominated for Razzie Redeemer awards for their roles in “Hustlers” and “Uncut Gems,” respectively.
The “Cats” stars may be more eager to put this experience behind them.
