As awards season wraps up this weekend with the 2022 Oscars, the Razzie Awards is continuing its tradition and announcing, the day before the Academy Awards, its picks for the worst in film from 2021.
After scoring the most Razzie nominations, Netflix’s filmed version of the Princess Diana Broadway musical, Diana, won the most Razzie Awards, scooping up five trophies.
The project, the stage production of which closed Dec. 19, won worst picture, actress, supporting actress, director and screenplay.
Warner Bros.’ Space Jam revival received the second highest number of Razzie trophies, three, with star LeBron James named worst actor. Space Jam: A New Legacy also won worst screen couple and remake, rip-off or sequel. Indeed, the only one of the four Razzie Awards it was nominated for but didn’t win is worst picture.
This year the Razzies also added an all-Bruce Willis category, with eight nominees, for worst performance by the actor in a 2021 movie. Willis’ performance in Cosmic Sin beat out the other contenders.
And the Razzies gave Oscar nominee Will Smith, who won four Razzies over the course of his career, its redeemer award for his role in King Richard. In a video accompanying the Razzie winners announcement, the Razzies said other contenders for the redeemer honor were Jamie Dornan (Belfast) and Nicolas Cage (Pig). Recent recipients of the redeemer award include Eddie Murphy in 2020 and Melissa McCarthy in 2019.
While Smith will have to wait until Sunday to see if he holds the dubious distinction of being both a Razzie and an Oscar winner, past Oscar winner Jared Leto won a Razzie Award this year for his work in House of Gucci.
A number of projects received multiple Razzie nominations but didn’t win any awards, including five-time nominees Netflix’s The Woman in the Window and Quiver Distribution’s Karen.
