Bruce Willis given his own category for the 2022 Razzie Awards

@Russellisation

Whilst the iconic Academy Awards celebrate the very best Hollywood has to offer in any given year, the satirical, though still very much real Razzie Awards do the exact opposite, making movies pay their debts for their poor contribution to cinema.

Including categories such as ‘Worst Picture’, ‘Worst Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel’ and the new addition of ‘Worst Performance by Bruce Willis in a 2021 Movie,’ and the 2022 Razzie Awards look to be a must-watch.

Leading the infamous line of unlucky nominees is Netflix’s Diana: The Musical, a film that the awards show called “the Netflix version of Broadway’s biggest bomb of the year,” joining the likes of Karen and The Woman in the Window, in the Worst Picture category.

Other notable additions to the list of nominees include LeBron James for Worst Actor, Tom & Jerry the Movie for ‘Worst Remake’ and Jared Leto for Worst Supporting Actor thanks to his performance in House of Gucci.

Though, by far the most hilarious inclusion on this list is the “special category” of ‘Worst Performance by Bruce Willis in a 2021 Movie,’ with the actor nominated eight times in a category he is certain to win. Taking place on March 26th, 2022, a day before the Academy Awards, take a look at the full list of Razzie nominees, below.
