James "won" two awards for "Space Jam: A New Legacy" at the 42nd Golden Raspberry awards on Saturday. The Razzies are awarded to the worst films of the year and are announced the day before the Academy Awards.
"Space Jam: A New Legacy" received four nominations and earned the most votes in three of them. The Warner Brothers movie earned the second-highest number of Razzie trophies for 2021. James was named "Worst Actor "as well as "worst onscreen couple for any Warner cartoon character (or Time-Warner Product) he dribbles on," per the nomination list.
The film won "worst remake, rip-off or sequel" over competitors "Karen," an "inadvertent remark of Cruella deVil"; "Tom & Jerry the Movie"; "Twist," a Rap remake of Oliver Twist"; and "The Woman in the Window," described as a rip-off of "Rear Window."

"Space Jam: A New Legacy" earned more than $162 million at the box office, but was reviewed poorly. It has a 26% critics review score, but a 79% audience review score on Rotten Tomatoes.
