The organization responsible for the Golden Raspberry (The Razzie) decided, this Thursday (31), to cancel the award in the category ‘Worst Bruce Willis Performance in a Movie of 2021‘. The organization decided to extinguish the award due to the news that the actor will retire due to a health problem.
The category, created exclusively for Bruce Willisnominated eight productions and the winning film was ‘cosmic sin‘. During the filming of these films, some people who worked with the actor revealed that Willis already had problems such as memory lapses.
In a statement to The Wrap, organizers of the year’s worst awards stated that “After much thought and consideration, the Razzies have made the decision to rescind the Razzie Award given to Bruce Willis, due to his recently released diagnosis.”.
“If someone’s medical condition is a factor affecting their performance, we recognize that it is inappropriate to give them a Golden Raspberry”he added.
In addition to the case with Willis, the organization also rescinded the appointment of Shelley Duvall by the movie ‘The illuminated‘, claiming the actress’ performance was impacted by the director’s inappropriate treatment Stanley Kubrick during the production of the work.
According to information already released by the family of the 67-year-old actor, Bruce Willis was diagnosed with Aphasia, a disorder that makes communication difficult.
