Myers, Hilton Take Razzies23 Feb, 2009 By: John Latchem
Mike Myers and Paris Hilton were the big winners (or is that losers?) at the 29th annual Golden Raspberry Awards, a ceremony that honors the worst achievement in film.
Hilton and Myers’ The Love Guru (on DVD from Paramount Home Entertainment) each earned three Razzies at the Feb. 21 ceremony (which, by tradition, is held the day before the Oscars).
The Love Guru took worst picture of 2008, worst screenplay and worst actor for Myers. Hilton took worst actress for The Hottie & The Nottie (on DVD from Liberation); worst supporting actress for Repo! The Genetic Opera (on DVD from Lionsgate); and worst screen couple for The Hottie & The Nottie with either Christine Lakin or Joel David Moore.
Multiple Razzies also went to director Uwe Boll, who took worst director for In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale (Fox), Postal (Vivendi) and 1968: Tunnel Rats. Boll was given a “Worst Career Achievement” nod for being, according to the Razzies, “Germany’s Answer to Ed Wood.”
Other awards went to Pierce Brosnan as worst supporting actor for Mamma Mia! (Universal); and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (Paramount) as worst prequel, remake, rip-off or sequel.
