Ever Wondered Why Bruce Willis Has Never Won An Oscar?

Bruce Willis, one of the most prolific and profitable actors in Hollywood, has been speaking about his Oscars drought, having never received a sniff of a nomination despite strong turns over the years in the likes of The Sixth Sense, Die Hard, Pulp Fiction and The Fifth Element. The actor, currently starting in A Good Day To Die Hard, spoke to GQ magazine about why he thinks he’s never been considered for a golden statuette.

“I don't think about it too much. It just always has seemed whimsical to me, to think about it. You don't get an Oscar for comedy, and you don't get it for shooting people. You get it for novelty, for being fascinating to watch in some character role.” It’s probably agreeable that Willis hasn’t taken many character roles over the years, though perhaps there’s still time for a clearly talented actor to win true critical acclaim. Clint Eastwood - initially regarded as a real journeyman actor - wasn’t nominated for an Oscar until he was 62, though Willis questions whether he has the same staying power. “The middle years to now makes me start to think that there should come a time when I should not work so much. I don't question other actors in their age and what they do; I just think, 'Wow, they're still fucking great.' They're still doing it,” he said.

It’s hard to determine where Willis’ award winning roles – if any – are going to come from in the coming years. He’s set to appear in the Sin City sequel and will star opposite Jamie Foxx in the crime-drama Kane & Lynch about a pair of death-row inmates. A turn in Jeffrey Nachmanoff’s American Assassin is unlikely to bare Oscars riches.
