Awards Watch: "Love" Stinks

On the eve of Hollywood's biggest salute to the best in film 2008, the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation singled out the worst of the worst of the year with their 29th Annual Razzie Awards. And it was not a good night for Mike Myers, Paris Hilton or Uwe Boll.

Myers' critically maligned box office bomb The Love Guru was named Worst Picture, while Myers himself was awarded for both his acting and writing on the would-be comedy. Hilton swept the actress "honors", as Worst Actress for The Hottie and the Nottie and Worst Supporting Actress for Repo! The Genetic Opera, plus a third Razzie as part of the Worst Screen Couple for Hottie. And Boll was not only singled out as Worst Director (duh) for his trash trifecta of In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, 1968: Tunnel Rats and Postal, but he was also "honored" with a Worst Career Achievement citation.

But it wasn't just flops that were Razzie'ed. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was named Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel, and poor tone deaf Pierce Brosnan "won" Worst Supporting Actor for Mamma Mia!
