The nominations for the Razzie Awards (a ceremony that pays tribute to the worst cinematic films) for 2021 have been released and this latest one may not please everyone, particularly Bruce Willis, who has a category at the Razzie Awards all to himself.
The Razzie Awards
The Golden Raspberry Awards, often abbreviated to the “Razzie Awards”, is a ceremony that takes the form of a parody of film awards. Established in 1981 to represent the opposite of the Oscars, the annual awards are given to the worst actors, screenwriters, musicians, directors and films in the entire film industry.
Traditionally, the nominations for the Razzie Awards are announced the day before those for the Oscars, and the awards are presented the day before the Academy Awards. We let you take note of the nominations for 2021 that have just been announced.
