Bruce Willis Bags His Own Razzie Category for 8 Bad Performances


The Razzie Awards nominations recognizing the worst “crap streaming, beaming and steaming from our various screens and devices” of 2021– as they put it — have been announced, with LeBron James, “Diana: The Musical,” Amy Adams and Bruce Willis topping the heap.

“Here’s a look at what we saw,” the organization said in a press release. “The excruciating musicals, thrill-free thriller rip-offs, a nearly 2 hour product placement flick, and more Bruce Willis than any starving viewer could stomach. In other words, 2021 did not fail the Razzies!”

With Oscar nominations coming out on Tuesday morning, the Academy Award’s snarky counterpart, the Golden Raspberry Awards (aka Razzies) followed suit as they do every year at this time acknowledging the superior work – or, actually, the inferior work – coming out of the entertainment industry.

Leading the field with nine nods is Netflix’s “Diana: The Musical.” Released in October, The Razzies call “Diana: The Musical” “the NetFLIX version of Broadway’s biggest bomb of the year.” Both the Broadway show and the filmed version were panned by critics who saw them as weak depictions of the Princess of Wales’ life. The show just lasted 33 performances on Broadway before it closed.

Joining “Diana” on the list of Worst Picture nominees are the thrillers “Karen” and “The Woman in the Window,” each with five nominations, as well as LeBron James’ “Space Jam: A New Legacy” and Paramount+’s “Infinite.”

Bad acting nominations went to “an otherwise great actress” Amy Adams with nods for both “Woman in the Window” and “Dear Evan Hansen,” LeBron James, “who most likely dunked his chances for basking in the cinema limelight by starring in ‘Space Jam 2,’” and Bruce Willis for, well, being Bruce Willis, apparently. Having appeared in eight projects that The Razzie thought were all pretty bad, they gave him his own category this year — Worst Performance by Bruce Willis in a 2021 Movie.

Among the other A-Listers on this R-List are Mark Wahlberg, Ben Affleck and Jared Leto.

The Razzies will be awarded the night before the Oscars on Saturday, March 26. Read the full nominee list below and watch the announcement of nominees at the top.
