A few days ago, the family of Bruce Willis sent a message to the whole world that left many of us with a terrible feeling. After four decades of career, in which he left us memorable jobs and unforgettable characters, the actor has announced that he will be retiring from acting after being diagnosed with aphasia that has affected his ability to communicate.
Every year Razzie hands out awards to the worst movies/ actors and so, But this year Razzie had the idea of creating and adding a new category of awards in honor of the Hollywood star that they called the “Worst performance of Bruce Willis of the year” , in which Willis had 8 nominations. The Razzies nominated the actor for seven exclusive category namely, “American Siege”, “Apex”, “Deadlock”, “Fortress”, “Midnight on Switchgrass”, “No Appointment” and “Survive the Game”.
Though Razzies co-founders John JB Wilson and Mo Murphy said in a statement. “After serious thought and consideration, the Razzie have decided to cancel the Razzie given to Bruce Willis due to his recently revealed diagnosis ,” “If someone’s medical condition is a determining factor in their decision-making and/or performance, we recognize that it is not appropriate to award them a Razzie,”
It was also announced the termination of the nomination for Worst Actress awarded to Shelley Duvall at the first ceremony of the Razzies for the film “Shining”. Mo Murphy said Duvall’s performance has been impacted by Stanley Kubrick’s treatment of him throughout production. We would like to take this opportunity to rescind that nomination as well.”
