29th Annual Razzie Award Nominations


Mike Myers in 'The Love Guru'

LOS ANGELES, California -- Voters for 2008's worst movies love Mike Myers. They really love him. Myers' comedy flop, "The Love Guru" led the field for the Razzies with seven nominations, among them worst picture and worst-acting slots for Myers, Jessica Alba, Verne Troyer and Academy Award-winner Ben Kingsley.

The number of nominations for "Love Guru" was appropriate given what a personal project it was for Myers, who not only starred but also co-wrote and produced the movie, said John Wilson, founder of the Razzies, an Oscar spoof that dishes out "dis-honors" for the lousiest stuff Hollywood dredged up the previous year.

"This is one of those auteur-of-the-awful situations," Wilson said. "I think people are tired of him in general. He hasn't really made a good movie in quite some time." Razzie "winners" will be announced Saturday, February 21, the day before the Oscars.


Paris Hilton as Cristabel in 'The Hottie & the Nottie'

The other worst-picture contenders were "Disaster Movie" and "Meet the Spartans," Hollywood spoofs that shared a nomination for a "badly beaten dead horse of a concept;" the fright flick, "The Happening" and the sword-and-sorcery fantasy, "In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale."

Also making the worst-picture list was Paris Hilton's romantic comedy bomb, "The Hottie & the Nottie." Plus, Hilton had three individual nominations: worst actress and worst screen couple alongside her co-stars in "The Hottie & the Nottie," plus worst supporting actress for "Repo! The Genetic Opera."

Eddie Murphy, named worst actor, supporting actor and supporting actress last year for multiple roles in "Norbit," has two nominations this time, as worst actor and screen couple alongside himself for dual roles in his sci-fi comedy dud, "Meet Dave."


Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher overact onscreen

in 'What Happens in Vegas'

Cameron Diaz also picked up two Razzie nominations for the romance, "What Happens in Vegas," as worst actress and worst screen couple alongside co-star Ashton Kutcher. Along with Kingsley, Oscar winner Al Pacino had a worst-actor nomination for his crime thrillers, "88 Minutes" and "Righteous Kill."
