Bruce Willis' Oscar Ambitions Die Hard

9/23/2009 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There's no debating the guy can make a kick-ass action flick -- but when Bruce Willis told photogs yesterday he's "doubtful" his movies will ever get him an Academy Award, did he have a point?

FYI -- Bruce won a Worst Actor Razzie in 1999 for "Armageddon."

Considering some of the unlikely past winners for the Best Actor Oscar, I would say it is possible. He's a good actor and with the right part, he could bring it home.

Does any remember how good he was in "The Sixth Sence" he could have been nominated for that role, he was excellent in that role.

Absolutely! Bruce WAS awesome in 'The Sixth Sense'!! And who does it better in a big shoot-em-up action flick than Bruce? Those movies just don't usually get considered by the academy as being Oscar-worthy for whatever reason. I love Bruce & think he's definitely capable of "bringin' it home"!

I hope that Bruce Willis is be comforted by the fact that millions of people really enjoy his work and look forward to so much more from him. I know it's an ultimate goal of achievement to receive that award and I'm not undermining that.

The Academy Awards are not really awards in the sense that they award artistic achievement within the field of cinema. It's more of a H'Wood popularity contest so basicly anyone can win.

Republicans do not win Academy Awards.
The Academy will not allow it.
They are VERY political.
He knows it.

Far far white don`t make you right.YES ACORN has to be rebuilt but a nebraska lifetime liver off american`s taxe money puts johanns on the same list.His funding via hollywood wife and contacts should be cut off and his committee kilroy~ss shut down.How much money does nebraska pay to black america? and why is a white lifer politica worryed about something that has nothing to do with his party or state?.He is setting up to run for washington office getting free press from his rightwingers.He should get a real job in a brain drain state but that is something he can`t do either.Black american needs ACORN but american does`nt need white out of touch rightwingers trying to bring china slave states stateside.One more right winger trying STILL to built slaves VIA china

J-star lincoln nebraska press? says Johanns puts a feather in his cap with acorn?WTF more like EYE HOLES in his KKK SHEET.ACORN helps many many real people stay in jobs and paying taxes.Johanns has done neither in his lifetime living off the people via thier taxe dollar wasted.He let down the nebraska farmers time after time and he is hidding his hidden hollywood agend via his sony owned and provided 2nd wife.Stay where it`s white inside your KKK sheet and out of real american.It`s just sad middle american has not waken up to fake flakes like Johanns

Bruce who? Who's the baldy? Isn't that the old scrub that used to be married to Demi Whore? I can only imagine the oh so awkward get togethers between Bruce and new fam. Yeeesh!

Sorry, don't get the Bruce Willis love at all.

Bruce is an incredibly tallented actor and it is an incredible loss to movie goers that he is constantly typecasted as an action hero. He never managed to get out from under the shadow of Die Hard. He certainly possesses the raw talent to play in a movie which could get him an Oscar, but I doubt that he'd actually be allowed to play in such a movie.

JOHANNS will loose in the long run.Pulling the plug on ACORN is way way wrong and shows the KKK at work in middle american still out of touch with human rights and still far far rightwingers wanting more slaves from where ever CHINA is where johanns should slave drive at american does`nt lead toys via lifetime hollywood owned governators and flake politicas.2 million people stuck in a state that is 98% white should not have a say in anything to do with ACORN and they won`t.Grand standing same old johanns same out of touch aganda same KKK SS.

Mike Johanns should be investigated for murder and ties to the hollywood mofia.The justice dept is now a bad joke in american only the rich get a day in court and lifetime politicas are owned by those rich unchecked monpolas...how did madoff happpen? and why are they NOT finding the money...the mofia runs the system and covers up it`s own tracks via puppet`SS in goverment.Grandstanding to get a shot at a washington office by Johanns is really just the mob white white saying look at me.NO one care as nebraska is`nt a piss in the bucket other than food from farmers...to bad they have to put up with hollywood puppet johanns playing his hitler like gig on black america
