Bruce Willis talks never being nominated for an Oscar in GQ

By Sarah Burbank-Douglas,

Bruce Willis has a lengthy resume from action packed Die Hard to going to space in Armageddon, but the 57-year-old actor has never been nominated for an Oscar in his lengthy career.

According to E! News, Willis discussed his non-existent Oscar nominations in the new issue of GQ.

Willis opened up about his numerous Oscar snubs telling the magazine, “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, of being fascinating to watch in some character role. But the Die Hard stuff and Dirty Harry are all fraught with the same thing that every story is fraught with,” he adds.

The Die Hard star is not without awards, he has received numerous awards for his roles in The Sixth Sense, Armageddon and The Siege.

He also won a Golden Globe in 1987 for his role in Moonlighting as well as a People’s Choice Award.

Willis is featured on the cover of GQ, which hits stands Feb. 19.
