The nominations are in…but they’re not the ones celebrities want to be awakened for.  The folks behind the 42nd Annual Golden Raspberry Awards have made their picks of the best of the worst for 2021. 

As always, included this year are all manner of allegedly bad visual entertainment, from critically-panned Broadway productions like Netflix’s streaming of the dead-on-arrival Diana: The Musical, to Bruce Willis, who made so many Razzie-nominated movies in 2021 alone that he earned his own Razzies category this year.

Diana: The Musical swept this year’s nods, topping the competition with nine nominations, from Worst Picture, to Worst Song and Worst Screenplay. 

This year’s “winners” will be unveiled on Saturday, March 26th, the evening before the Academy Awards are given out on ABC.
