LeBron James might not have been an MVP candidate in 2021, however he’s within the operating for Worst Actor of final 12 months.
Every 12 months, the Razzie Awards committee honors the worst in filmmaking in a prestigious method. On Monday, the committee nominated James for the Worst Actor award for his position in Space Jam: A New Legacy.
James’ terrible efficiency additionally helped Space Jam earn a nomination for Worst Picture. Here are the nominees for each classes:
Diana the Musical (The Netflix Version)
Space Jam: A New Legacy
The Woman within the Window
Scott Eastwood / Dangerous
Roe Hartrampf (As Prince Charles) Diana the Musical
LeBron James / Space Jam: A New Legacy
Ben Platt / Dear Evan Hansen
Mark Wahlberg / Infinite
- Worst Picture — Space Jam: A New Legacy.
- Worst Actor — LeBron James.
LeBron James is among the worst movie actors of all time. It could be offensive for the committee to selected Mark Wahlberg or Scott Eastwood over James this 12 months. James would possibly even name that racist.
Even the director of the unique Space Jam thinks LeBron sucks
“Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson, and Madonna — all three have this quality where people connect immediately without understanding anything about them. And nobody else has that quality. LeBron is a fantastic basketball player, he’s a top-20 basketball player of all time. He is not Michael,” ” stated director Joe Pytka.
“Maybe they should call it something else. They should not call it Space Jam 2, or whatever. It should be another movie. It’s not Space Jam. Space Jam is Michael Jordan. No matter how much LeBron wants to be a great player — and he is a great player — he’s not Michael Jordan. There will never be another Michael Jordan.”
Fair. However, Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson, and Madonna by no means gained Razzies. Perhaps LeBron James can accomplish one thing they may not.
Per custom, Razzie will announce the “winners” on March 26, the day earlier than the Oscars.
