Will they cease to exist one day?

The Razzie Awards They began to exist in 1981 and since then they have been extremely controversial, since year after year their validity or importance is debated. Recently, the award held a category made exclusively for Bruce Willis, just days before his family announced his early retirement following his unfortunate diagnosis of aphasia. Although Razzie they ended up revoking said category, it seems that they have not learned and every year they end up generating controversy.

For now, the Razzie they have to decide if they will keep the nomination of Ryan Kiera Armstrong for worst actress, or they’ll apologize for hurting a girl’s self-esteem and career. What is a fact is that after the Willis scandal and now this year’s nomination, the Razzie seems to be going out of fashion and the public begins to question its broadcast for lack of ethics.

For this reason, many critics consider that the Razzies they should disappear for harming many actors, actresses, directors and more creative people in the industry and not contributing anything positive to the projects.
