42nd Razzie® Award Nominations

[Update: 04/01/2022. In light of Bruce Willis’ family announcing that he has aphasia and is stepping back from acting, the Razzie award and nominations have been withdrawn.]

The 42nd Razzie® Nominations are out. “We simple Earthlings who did not ‘Look Up’ remained glued to the Razzie crap streaming, beaming and steaming from our various screens and devices,” begins the press release.

The choices for this year’s Worst Picture nominees include two genre productions, Infinite and Space Jam: A New Legacy. Each film is nominated in several more categories, however, they are eclipsed by Diana the Musical, based on the life of the late princess, which leads with nine nominations.  

Actor Bruce Willis has worked so much lately that he is nominated eight times and designated a category by himself. Two of his roles are sff.

This year’s “winners” will be unveiled on the now traditional date of “Oscar Eve,” Saturday, March 26.
