Sharon Stone in 'Basic Instinct 2'

LOS ANGELES, California -- At least someone was happy Sharon Stone reprised her notorious femme-fatale role with "Basic Instinct 2." The box-office bomb received seven nominations for the Razzie Awards that mock the bottom of Hollywood's barrel, among them Worst Picture and Worst Actress of the Year.

Also receiving seven nominations was the Wayans Brothers comedy, "Little Man," about a thief posing as a baby, including Worst Picture and Director for Keenen Ivory Wayans. Shawn and Marlon Wayans shared a Worst Actor nomination, while sisters Hilary and Haylie Duff shared a Worst Actress nomination for "Material Girls."

Razzies founder John Wilson explained, "We stuck the siblings together to allow room for more dreck." The other Worst Picture nominees were the fantasies, "BloodRayne" and "Lady in the Water" as well as the thriller, "The Wicker Man."

Joining Stone and the Duffs in the Worst Actress category were Lindsay Lohan for "Just My Luck," Kristanna Loken for "BloodRayne" and Jessica Simpson for "Employee of the Month." Stone previously won a Razzie as Worst Actress for 1994's "The Specialist" and "Intersection." Wilson said, "She's what we call a Razzie repeat offender. Perhaps even a recidivist."

"Basic Instinct 2" also had a nomination for Worst Screen Couple for Stone's "lopsided breasts." Also nominated were co-star David Thewlis for Worst Supporting actor and the movie's director, Michael Caton-Jones.

Along with the Wayans, "Little Man" co-star Rob Schneider had a worst-actor nomination. The other nominees were Tim Allen for "The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause," "The Shaggy Dog" and "Zoom;" Nicolas Cage for "The Wicker Man" and Larry the Cable Guy for "Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector."

The Razzies added a new category, Worst Excuse for Family Entertainment. The nominees were "Deck the Halls," "Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties," "RV," "The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause" and "The Shaggy Dog."

The big surprise for Wilson was that all-time Razzies champ Sylvester Stallone's "Rocky Balboa" was not nominated. Stallone, who has 30 Razzie nominations and 10 wins, surprised many skeptics by delivering a sequel that was well received by audiences and earned better-than-expected reviews.

"At the first of the year, you could not have convinced me it wasn't going to be a Razzie contender," Wilson said. "I would like to publicly say that Stallone has made a good movie." Winners will be announced Saturday, February 24, the day before the Academy Awards.

Razzie Voters Get Back to 'Basic-s'

Any honest Academy member will admit that Oscar voters are dealing with slim pickings for 2006. But at the other end of the quality scale, voters for this year's "27th Annual Razzie Awards" had literally dozens of deserving contenders to choose from on their list of the "Berry Worst of 2006."

And choose they have! They'll 'Razz' the nominees in ceremonies to be held at 7:30 p.m. (PST) on Oscar eve on Saturday, February 24 at Hollywood's Ivar Theatre. Previous Razzie winners like Halle Berry have shown they don't take themselves so seriously by attending the festivities and picking up their 'Raspberry' in person!

Heading the dis-honor roll of Worst Achievements in Film this year are a lascivious murder mystery that turned out to be a laugh riot, and a comedy nearly as devoid of laughs as "Schindler's List" . . . Sharon Stone as a "femme fatale" in what The Los Angeles Times called "footloose and panty-free" in "Basic Instinct 2."

Also on the list are Shawn and Marlon Wayans in their brother, Keenan Ivory Wayans' blatant knock-off of a 1954 Bugs Bunny cartoon, "Little Man." Each racked up seven shots at the spray-painted gold statuettes no one in Hollywood really wants to "win." Plus, M. Night Shyamalan's brain-dead bedtime story (and box office dud) "Lady In The Water."

Joining these films in the final circle as Worst Picture nominees includes Oscar winner Nicolas Cage donning an unconvincing bear suit in the laugh-out-loud funny remake of the Australian thriller, "Wicker Man" and a film helmed by the man many Internet users consider the worst director alive today, Uwe Boll's "Bloodrayne."

The Wayans Brothers and Cage will be competing for Worst Actor of 2006 against last year's "winner" Rob Schneider in "The Benchwarmers" and Larry the Cable Guy (Dan Whitney) as Larry the Cable Guy in "Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector."

Tim Allen in 'The Shaggy Dog'

Completing the list is former TV funnyman Tim Allen who seems to dominate the Worst Actor of 2006 category. Allen is nominated in not one . . . not two . . . but a a trio of terrible titles including "Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, "The Shaggy Dog" and "Zoom."

Vying with Stone for Worst Actress will be repeat offender Jessica Simpson, who is nominated this year for "Employee Of The Month," teen-idol (and terrible role model) Lindsay Lohan in "Just My Luck," newcomer Kristanna Loken in "Bloodrayne" and spelling-challenged risible siblings Hilary and Haylie Duff in "Material Girls."

Other well-known names and former Oscar darlings getting dinged with Golden Raspberry nods for 2006 include Ben Kingsley, Martin Short and Danny DeVito competing as Worst Supporting Actor. Razzie regulars Jenny McCarthy and Carmen Electra compete with "Lost" star Michelle Rodriguez, Kristin Chenoweth and Kate Bosworth as an ultra-lame Lois Lane in "Superman Returns" for Worst Supporting Actress.

This year's newest Razzie category salutes the dearth of quality 'G' and 'PG' rated movie fare in 2006: Nominated as Worst Excuse for Family Entertainment are "Deck The Halls," "Garfield 2: A Tail Of Two Kitties," "RV," "Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause" and "The Shaggy Dog."

The Razzies were created in 1980 by lifelong cinemaniac and cynic John Wilson, author of both "The Official Razzie Movie Guide" and "Everything I Know I Learned At The Movies." Nominees were determined by mailing ballots to 737 Golden Raspberry Foundation members throughout 42 US states and more than a dozen foreign countries.

Should they choose to accept their Razzies, "winners" receive a gold-spray-painted, golf-ball-sized raspberry atop a mangled super 8 film reel, with an estimated street value of $4.97. For more information on the Razzie Awards and their ill-lustrious history, please visit The Razzies.

27th Annual Razzie Awards

Razzie Voters Decide Stone 'Basic-2ly' Stinks

Although they decided to spread the loathe around, voters for this year's "27th Annual Razzie Awards" clearly placed Sharon Stone's unintentionally hilarious who-dunnit, "Basic Instinct 2" head and hooters above the competition.

In ceremonies held on Oscar Eve at Hollywood's Ivar Theatre, the film known to Golden Raspberry Award Foundation members as "Basically, it Stinks, Too" took four $4.97 trophies, among them Worst Picture, Worst Screenplay, Worst Prequel or Sequel and Stone herself as 2006's Worst Actress.

But "Basically, it Stinks, Too" didn't find itself alone in the "winners" circle at Tinsel Town's tackiest trophy derby: Fellow Worst Picture nominees, "Lady in the Water" and "Little Man," each took multiple dis-honors as well.

The Wayans brothers' far-from-funny midget-thief-pretending-to-be-a-baby "comedy" film, "Little Man," swiped three statuettes from its seven nominations: it was named Worst Remake or Rip-Off, and Shawn and Marlon Wayans were both dually dissed as the year's Worst Screen Couple, and jointly named Worst Actor.

M. Night Shyamalan, who blew off a multi-million-dollar, multi-picture deal with Disney to get his thrill-free-thriller, "Lady in the Water," made was rewarded for his megalomania with two Razzies: He was named both Worst Director and, for casting himself in a pivotal role in his own film, was also chosen as Worst Supporting Actor.

Worst Supporting Actress turned out to be a neck-and-neck race between two talent-free blonde bimbos, but in the end, Carmen Electra beat out last year's Worst Actress "winner" Jenny McCarthy. Electra's third Razzie nomination proved the charm, and she took the spray-painted gold for her cameo appearances in a pair of putrid parodies, "Date Movie" and "Scary Movie 4."

Rounding out the field, and running on empty where actual amusement is concerned, was the "winner" in the newest Razzie category, Worst Excuse for Family Entertainment: Robin Williams' road apple of a road movie, "RV."
