Awards Watch: Raspberries!

Personally, I tend not to do "worst" lists (I prefer to celebrate movies, not berate them), but in the case of the trio of cinematic offenders pictured above, I'll make an exception ... and "congratulate" them for leading this year's nominations for the 2007 Golden Raspberry Awards.

"Honoring" celluloid schlock for the past 28 years, the "Razzies" this year have singled out I Know Who Killed Me (starring "Worst Actress" double nominee Lindsay Lohan in a dual role far -- very far -- from her breakout role in Disney's The Parent Trap), I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry (starring "Worst Screen Couple" Adam Sandler and Kevin James) and Eddie Murphy's Norbit, which netted the star the ignoble achievement of receiving the most Razzie nominations -- five, for playing three characters -- in a single year. Naturally, all three are up for "Worst Picture", along with Bratz and Daddy Day Camp.

The awards, which consist of about $1.98 worth of gold spray paint and plastic fruit, will be bestowed on the usual no-show celebrities on February 23, the day before the actual Oscars. For a quick look at the nominees, see the comments section below.
