Bruce Willis: Razzie's Unrivaled Star of 2021
Golden Globe winner and action icon, Bruce Willis, has given movie buffs quite the spectacle throughout the years. But 2021 was undoubtedly his pièce de résistance, albeit in an unexpected realm. Worst Performance by Bruce Willis in a 2021 Movie - it's not a typo! Bruce truly stamped his mark in the annals of Razzie history.
With eight direct-to-video movies under his belt in just one year, the star became a magnet for the anti-Oscars' mockery. Films like American Siege, and Cosmic Sin came and went under the radar, leaving fans and followers in a state of bamboozlement. The sentiment echoed on social media, with one fan quipping, “How did Bruce Willis get 8 films out in a year and I haven’t heard of a single one?!”
Producer Randall Emmett's collaboration with Willis gave rise to the term Geezer Teasers, but it was the rapid succession of releases that left everyone flabbergasted. The Razzie Awards, never missing a chance for some sardonic humor, noted a year filled with "more Bruce Willis than any starving viewer could stomach."
Oscars and Razzies: The Tinseltown Tug-of-War
It wasn't just Willis facing the Golden Raspberry's sarcasm. Oscar nominees Amy Adams, Jared Leto, and Ben Affleck found themselves on the Razzies' radar. In particular, Leto's quirky interpretation in House of Gucci earned him a playful jab for his "17-Pound Latex Face, His Geeky Clothes or His Ridiculous Accent.”

Whether it's Oscar glam or Razzie jests, the show must go on. And who better to lead the way than Bruce Yippee-ki-yay Willis?
