42nd Annual Razzie Awards Announces Best Of The Worst Nominations
The Golden Raspberry Awards, a tongue-in-cheek ceremony meant to honor, or shame, the worst movies in Hollywood every year, released its list of nominations Sunday. Over 1,000 voting members chose the nominations, and the Razzie Award “Winners” will be announced the night before the Academy Awards on March 26, 2022.
Leading the pack with 9 nominations, the musical Diana, a 2020 performance of which was filmed and released on Netflix, easily led the pack and showed up in most categories including Worst Picture, Worst Director, and all of the Acting categories. The production was critically panned for having lackluster and dated songs and was considered an exploitative portrayal of Princess Diana’s life.
Thrillers Karen and The Woman In The Window were next-most nominated with five Razzie noms each. Both were included in the Worst Picture and Worst Director categories, and Taryn Manning‘s portrayal of a racist woman in the dark comedy Karen earned her particular ridicule plus a Worst Actress nom. The Woman In the Window star Amy Adams was also nominated for Worst Actress and even got called out twice this year, earning a Worst Supporting Actress nomination too for her role in the unsuccessful Dear Evan Hanson adaptation.
The LeBron James-fronted Space Jam sequel was also shouted out by the Razzies, earning four nominations including Worst Actor for James, and Worst Screen Combo for James, and “Any Other Warner Cartoon Character,” highlighting his lack of chemistry with his digital looney tune co-stars.
Other humorous nominees include Bodysuit-donning Jared Leto for House of Gucci, Scott Eastwood for his role as a reformed sociopath in Dangerous, and Bruce Willis, who received not only a nomination but the honor of a special category dubbed “Worst Performance by Bruce Willis in a 2021 movie.”
