Basketball phenom LeBron James was the MVP in both Worst Actor and Worst Screen Couple (along with all those cartoon co-stars and product plugs) while the film itself was chosen Worst Remake/Rip-Off or Sequel," the 2022 Golden Raspberry Awards press release reads.
The live-action and animated sports comedy film produced by Warner Bros itself took a grand total of three Razzies, making it "well-represented" at the annual event. It won in the category of "Work Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel," as well as garnering the athlete's "Worst Actor" takeaway plus "Worst Screen Couple" clench for his pairing with "Any Warner Cartoon Character (or WarnerMedia Product)."
According to CBS Sports, the James-led film took center stage at the 42nd Golden Raspberry Awards, "earning four nominations and winning three of them."
CBS Sports went on to report that Space Jam: A New Legacy was also nominated for "Worst Picture," an "honor" it lost out on to Diana The Musical.

The athlete's Razzie puts him in a league with other professional basketball players such as the legendary Shaquille O'Neal and Dennis Rodman, who won an "impressive" three Razzies for his performance in the 1997 movie Double Team. which included the titles "Worst Supporting Actor" and "Worst New Star."
