Bruce Willis gets own Razzies category after eight bad films in one year

Ben Affleck and Jared Leto also score nods for the worst in 2021 cinema

The 2022 Golden Raspberry (or Razzies) nominations have been announced, with Bruce Willis earning his own category.

The annual film awards honour the worst in filmmaking for the past year, with Netflix‘s Diana musical earning the most nods this time with nine nominations in total – including Worst Picture.

However, Willis has been given a special category called ‘Worst Bruce Willis Performance in a 2021 movie’ after releasing eight films – namely American Siege, Apex, Cosmic Sin, Deadlock, Fortress, Midnight In The Switchgrass, Out Of Death and Survive The Game.

Also scoring multiple nods this year were LeBron James for his work on Space Jam: A New Legacy, including Worst Actor, and Amy Adams, who has been nominated for Worst Actress for The Woman In The Window and Worst Supporting Actress for Dear Evan Hansen.

Ben Affleck also earned a Worst Supporting Actor nomination for The Last Duel, as did Jared Leto for House Of Gucci, while Mark Wahlberg has a Worst Actor nomination for Infinite.

Ruby Rose was also nominated for Worst Actress for Vanquish, while Taryn Manning has Worst Actress and Supporting Actress nods for Karen and Every Last One Of Them, respectively.

“Here’s a look at what we saw. 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,” the Razzies said. “In other words, 2021 did not fail the Razzies!”
