Razzie Awards 2022 winners: Jared Leto, LeBron James

The winners of the 42nd annual Golden Raspberry Awards were announced on late Friday night / early Saturday morning, with two of the most well-known recipients being Jared Leto spirit LeBron James. Leto “won” the worst supporting actor award for “House of Gucci,” for the very same role that earned him nominations at the Critics Choice Awards and SAG Awards. James “won” the worst lead actor trophy for “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” the half-cartoon flick that was also named worst sequel and worst screen combo. Scroll down for the complete list of Razzie Awards 2022 winners, which are noted in gold.

Voters chose “Diana the Musical” for worst picture, but that was not all. The Netflix streamer also “won” for worst lead actress (Jeanna de Waal), worst supporting actress (Judy Kaye), worst director (Christopher Ashley) and worst screenplay (Joe DiPietro).

In a new category, “Cosmic Sin” was picked as the worst Bruce Willis performance among eight possibilities released in 2021. And for some rare good news, Will Smith was this year’s recipient of the Razzie Redeemer Award thanks to his Oscar-nominated turn in “King Richard.”

As is tradition, the Golden Raspberry Awards announced their contenders on the eve of the Oscar ceremony. The Razzies are a tongue-in-cheek comedy troupe that “honor” the worst films of the year. A special video announcement revealed this year’s kudos, which you can watch right here:
