As always, the winners of the “Golden Raspberry”
Awards were announced
the day before the Academy Award winners. A summary
is below.

  • Dirty
    Love
    received awards for worst picture, worst
    actress (Jenny McCarthy), worst screenplay (also Jenny
    McCarthy), and worst director (John Asher).
  • Rob Schneider took home the worst actor razzie for
    his work in Deuce
    Bigalow: European Gigolo
    .
  • Hayden Christensen won the worst supporting actor
    award for Star
    Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
    . While his
    performance certainly wasn’t Oscar worthy, I’m not
    sure it should be worth a razzie, either.
  • Paris Hilton won the worst supporting actress award
    for the remake
    of House of Wax
    , which was a remake of Mystery
    of the Wax Museum
    .
  • Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell took home the razzie
    for worst screen couple based on their work in Bewitched.
  • Son
    of the Mask
    won the razzie for worst remake or
    sequel.
  • This year also featured the new “most tiresome tabloid
    targets” award, which went to Tom Cruise, Katie
    Holmes, Oprah Winfrey’s Couch, The Eiffel Tower, and
    “Tom’s Baby.”

I find it more than mildly amusing that most Oscar
nominated films are either not on DVD, or were rushed
to DVD with a release date that’s close to the Oscar
broadcast, while every Razzie nominated film is
available at Amazon.com and ready to ship in 24 hours.
