The Nominees for the Razzie Awards Are in and Bruce Willis Has Been Given His Own Category

The Oscar nominations were released on February 8, but while we love to celebrate the immense talent in the film industry, we also enjoy berating those who didn’t give it their all.

2021/2022 has seen some fantastic films such as King Richard, Dune and Nightmare Alley. But they’ve also seen some movies that probably should have been kept in a safe, deep down in the ocean with no one knowing the combination.

We’re not sure what filmmakers were thinking when they decided to release these movies to the general public but we’re certain that being nominated for a Razzie Award has humbled them.

The Golden Raspberry Awards, otherwise known as the Razzie Awards, is a parody of the Oscars and honours the worst of cinematic under-achievements. This year, Netflix’s Diana the Musical led the nominations, with nine in total including Worst Picture. Joe Wright’s The Woman in the Window has also earned multiple nominations across different categories. But it was Bruce Willis who really shined with an entire category dedicated to the artist: Worst Performance by Bruce Willis in a 2021 Movie. Ouch.

But there was one name that we didn’t expect to be included among the list of nominees, and that was Jared Leto’s portrayal of Paolo Gucci in House of Gucci. While we agree that his Italian accent sounded more like Mario and was borderline offensive, he did earn a SAG nomination for the role, so what does it matter what we think anyway?

Turns out, the Razzies agreed with us and many others who have criticised Leto for his performance and decided to nominate him for Worst Supporting Actor.

As I read through the nominations, my first thought was: “Why would anyone make a musical based on Princess Diana?” Not only do we have plenty of Diana biopics around, including Spencer which received a much warmer reception than the train wreck Netflix produced, but it also seems somewhat exploitative.

The winner of the Razzie Awards will be revealed on March 27, but in the meantime, take a look at the full list of nominees below.
