The 2022 Razzie nominations have been announced and those being honored (or dishonored) come from a wide range of popular films and one actor has even received his very own category.

This year, the awards event has a new category, “Worst Performance by Bruce Willis in a 2021 Movie,” and this is where Bruce Willis is nominated for his roles in American Siege, Apex, Cosmic Sin, Deadlock, Fortress, Midnight in the Switchgrass, Out of Death, and Survive the Game. Not sure this is the distinction he was hoping for this year.

In a clear sign that Jared Leto’s performance in House of Gucci has been very polarizing, the actor is nominated for worst supporting actor and worst couple, paired with what the nominations call his “ridiculous” movie accent, or his “17-pound latex face” for his performance as Paolo Gucci. Leto has also received acclaim for his role in the film with a nomination as Best Supporting Actor at the Critics Choice Awards and a recent SAG nomination. He could be headed for an Oscar nomination as well which will be interesting to investigate if he would be the first person to receive best and worst nominations for the same role.

Some people on social media are responding negatively to the Razzie nomination that Ben Affleck received for worst actor for his role as French baron Count Pierre d’Alencon in The Last Duel. Many are saying he gave an absolutely solid performance and that the Razzies are singling him out to merely draw attention to their ceremony.

Each year, the Razzie Awards take place the day before The Academy Awards. This year, the ceremony will take place on March 26, 2022, and The Academy Awards will take place on March 27, 2022. You can check out the full list of nominees below!
