Bruce Willis is OK with not having an Oscar nod

For yet another awards season, Bruce Willis is one of the actors not named among the nominees. But the 57-year-old "Die Hard" star, whose fifth film in the franchise opens on Valentine's Day, isn't bothered by his career-long strikeout with the Academy.

“I don’t think about it too much. It just always has seemed whimsical to me, to think about it," Willis tells GQ in its March issue, which will be available February 19.

"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.”

As for future projects, Willis only knows one thing for sure: whatever he does, it won't involve politics.

"Nobody wants to hear this bad news, but we’re all dying on some level. I’m going to try to keep the machine moving forward as much as possible and not have to think about the eventuality of becoming more frail and less able to do the work," he says. "I know that I’m not going into politics. That’s not an option. I was asked, and I said, 'Did you hear any of the stuff about me when I was a kid?'"

      I don't, but I do care that some nit with an opinion can't take two additional seconds to properly punctuate a two-word sentence. Maybe you'll understand this one: yer pathetic
