Bruce Willis – There is the best cinema, and there is the worst. Regrettable productions and performances are distinguished every year by the Razzie Awards, during an evening preceding that of the Oscars. And for the year 2021, Bruce Willis received special treatment with a category entirely dedicated to him!
The awards for the worst cinema in 2021 are soon to be awarded
Alongside the prestigious awards ceremonies of the Golden Globes and the Oscars, which recognize the best in cinema, there are also the famous Razzie Awards, a kind of anti-Oscars that satirically distinguishes the worst films of the past year. And for this 2022 edition, there is something new, since indeed the star of action cinema from the 90s Bruce Willis appears in eight movies nominated for the Razzie Awards. A major performance, which was well worth a category dedicated to him: “Bruce Willis’ Worst Performances of 2021“.
The 2021 Razzie Awards will be presented on March 26, the day before the Academy Awards.
Modeled on a conventional award ceremony, the Razzies come to reward the worst in cinema: the worst film, the worst actor, and the worst actress, the same for the supporting actors, the worst screenplay, the worst director, and so on. For the year 2020, it is Kate Hudson and Mike Lindell who have been distinguished as worst actress and worst actor, respectively in Music and Absolute Proof, the latter having also received the Razzie Award for the worst film. Please note that since the outbreak of COVID-19, the selection also includes films available on VOD and streaming… Inevitably, that gives matter.
Bruce Willis in the hollow of the wave
Bruce Willis’ performance is thus such that he only appears in his own category, with eight films: American Headquarters, Apex, Cosmic Sin, Deadlock, Fortress, The prey, out of death and Survive the Game. None of these films passed the 20% mark on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. An inglorious sequence in the career of the actor of diehard.
Out of competition, therefore, Bruce Willis leaves the field open for this 42nd edition, in particular to Scott Eastwood in dangerousLeBron James in Space Jam: New Era and Mark Wahlberg in Infinity in the “worst actor” category. For the worst male supporting roles we find among others Mel Gibson in dangerous Jared Leto in House of Gucci and Ben Affleck in The Last Duel. For the latter, a haircut story perhaps?
If the award ceremony is not intended to humiliate the distinguished personalities, we can imagine that Bruce Willis will not be present at the ceremony. Since its creation in 1981, only five rewarded people played the game and accepted their prize in person. Paul Verhoeven in 1996 for ShowgirlsTom Green in 2002 for Worship Fuck you, Freddy! Halle Berry in 2005 for her performance in Catwoman, as well as John Rogers, screenwriter of the film. The latest, Sandra Bullock in 2010, for her role in All About Steve.
