Razzie Awards Nominations: ‘Diana, The Musical’ Up For Worst (Almost) Everything


Spread the love

In a year where the Kristen Stewart-led Spencer earned its share of awards buzz comes word that another project about the late Princess Diana is the leading candidate for the anti-Oscars. Diana, the Musical, the filmed version of the ill-fated Broadway show, took a final bow with nine nominations for the 42nd annual Razzie Awards revealed today.

Razzie Awards

The show “scored” nine noms for the 2022 Golden Raspberries spanning nearly all of the categories, including Worst Picture, Actress, Actor, Director and Screenplay. The Woman in the Window and Karen are a distant second with five apiece, followed by Space Jam: A New Legacy with four and Infinite and The Misfits with three each.

The “winners” will be “honored” on March 26, the day before the Academy Awards. Watch the nominations video above.

Here is how the Razzies handicapped its own Worst Picture race: “This year’s Worst Picture nominees include: The NetFLIX version of Broadway’s biggest bomb of the year, Diana, the Musical (the stage version of which didn’t even last 40 performances); that multi-bajillion-dollar straight-to-streaming time travel turkey Infinite; the hopelessly on-the-nose/can’t-we-all-just-get-along melodrama Karen (whose title character makes Cruella seem like a nice neighbor); that 115-minute Time/Warner corporate sales reel posing as a family film, Space Jam: A New Legacy; and a lifeless, pointless “re-imagining” of a seminal Hitchcock classic, The Woman in the Window.”

A special category this year pits Bruce Willis against … Bruce Willis. The action-movie veteran is nominated eight times for Worst Performance in a Bruce Willis Movie — ranging from American Siege to Survive the Game.
