When LeBron James was handed the torch by Michael Jordan to film the “Spice Jam” sequel, he probably expected another win, but not at the satirical Oscar Razzie awards for the worst movies of the year.

The NBA giants won the Razzie Award for “Worst Actor” for their poor performance in this film that mixes live action scenes with characters from the world of Warner Bros. animation such as Bugs Bunny or… Daffy Duck.

The Golden Raspberry Awards, the official name for the Razzie, were launched in Los Angeles in 1981 by former film students and Hollywood professionals. It is traditionally awarded on the eve of the announcement of the winners of the Academy Awards.

In all, “Spice Jam: New Era,” derided by organizers as a “115-minute ad for all WarnerMedia productions,” won three Razzie Awards.

The film, which received the most “Razzie” this year, is a film version of a play dedicated to Princess Diana, which aired on Netflix and drew negative reviews from critics as it won five awards, including them “Worst Picture” and Worst Actress. The play itself ran for no more than 33 performances on Broadway.

Jared Leto won the Razzie Award for Worst Supporting Actor for his critically over-the-top performance and grotesque Italian accent in “House of Gucci,” a role that nonetheless earned him several Hollywood nominations.

This year, the Razzie Awards created a category for Bruce Willis called “Worst Bruce Willis Performance in a 2021 Movie.”

In these mostly low-budget productions, broadcast exclusively through streaming services, the Jungle Glass star plays a variety of roles, including a desperate police chief, an ex-cop, a retired general and an ex-cop. CIA agent.

None of these films, with most of which Bruce Willis appeared in some scenes, but was heavily involved in the promotion, received more than 20% positive reviews on the site “Rotten Tomatoes”, which collects points from various sources. In an exceptional performance, three of these films (“American Siege,” “Apex” and “Out of Death”) earned 0% positive reviews.
In a predictable result, Bruce Willis won this category for his sci-fi film “Cosmic Sin.”
