Razzies Rescind Bruce Willis’ Award

Razzies rescind Bruce Willis’ award for “Worst performance by Bruce Willis in a 2021 movie” after he announced he has aphasia. This medical condition affects cognitive abilities and could have been caused by a stroke, brain tumor, or other diseases.

“After much thought and consideration, the Razzies have made the decision to rescind the Razzie Award given to Bruce Willis, due to his recently disclosed diagnosis,” a statement from The Razzies said. “If someone’s medical condition is a factor in their decision making and/or their performance, we acknowledge that it is not appropriate to give them a Razzie.”

Bruce Willis and his family including ex-wife Demi Moore released a joint statement he will be taking a break from acting due to his medical condition.

The Razzies this year “nominated” Willis for eight of his performances this year in a category named for him, “Worst performance by Bruce Willis in a 2021 movie.” The group ultimately decided his role in “Cosmic Sin” was the so-called winner.

“The category was never meant to be an ongoing part of the Razzies. So it will not be repeated,” The Razzies statement added.

On Wednesday, the organization seemed to take a lighter approach to its response, writing on Twitter, “The Razzies are truly sorry for #BruceWillis diagnosed condition. Perhaps this explains why he wanted to go out with a bang in 2021. Our best wishes to Bruce and family.”

Likely due to ire, the Razzies later tweeted, “To clarify, we heard about Willis’ diagnosis at the same time everyone else did…just this morning.”

The Razzies also announced on Thursday that it was rescinding a decades-old nomination for Shelley Duvall, whose performance in “The Shining” earned her a nomination at the time.
