2007 Razzie Nominees Announced

This year's nominees for the 27th annual Golden Raspberry Award, honoring dubious and downright stinky achievements in film, have been announced. The front runners are the Sharon Stone film "Basic Instinct 2" and "Little Man" from brothers Keenen Ivory and Shawn Wayans; each received seven nominations, including Worst Picture.

Other films up for Worst Picture include "The Lady in the Water," the Nicolas Cage remake of "The Wicker Man," and Uwe Boll's latest monstrosity, "BloodRayne."

Up for Worst Actor: Nicolas Cage ("The Wicker Man"), Rob Schnieder ("The Benchwarmers"), Marlon and Shawn Wayans (combined, for "Little Man"), Dan Whitney (Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector") and Tim Allen, who could not be singled out for one performance, and is instead up for his work in three separate movies ("The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause," "Zoom," and "The Shaggy Dog")

Up for Worst Actress: Jessica Simpson ("Employee of the Month"), Lindsay Lohan ("Just My Luck"), sisters Hilary and Haylie Duff ("Material Girls"), Kristanna Loken ("BloodRayne") and Sharon Stone for the aforementioned "Basic Instinct 2."

Other categories typically awarded include Worst Director, Worst Screenplay, Worst Supporting Actor/Actress, Worst Screen Couple, Worst Prequel or Sequel, and Worst Remake or Rip-off.

The Razzies will be awarded on February 24, the day before the Academy Awards.

Ah, the award season. The razzies really missed it this year. I am not saying that little man is genius, but I know I paid good money to see 3 worse comedies. I think there has been a backlash since a movie publication declared the Wayans the most powerful family in Hollywood. Little Man is not worse Than Nacho Libre, Beerfest, or Accepted. And to totally overlook Snakes on a Plane, by far the worse, and most hyped movie of the year. I think it had a 15 million dollar budget and Sam Jackson got 12 million of it. worst effects, worst script, worst music video for a film, worst direction, and worst acting. Were all of the cast real actors?
