Not only were they this year’s leading nominees, but Mike Myers and Paris Hilton were also the top “winners” at Saturday’s Razzies, dis-honoring Hollywood worst achievements of the past year in an offbeat ceremony traditionally held a day before the Oscars.
Not that either attended the ceremony, but both the comic actor and the hotel heiress nabbed three Golden Raspberry Awards: Meyers, because his The Love Guru was the worst picture; he was the worst actor in it; and he co-wrote the script, selected as worst of the year.
Hilton’s citations were for worst actress for The Hottie and the Nottie, worst supporting actress for Repo! The Genetic Opera and worst screen couple with either of her Hottie costars, Christine Lakin or Joel David Moore.
Hilton’s triple win this weekend tied her with last year’s record-setter, Norbit star Eddie Murphy, prompting Razzies founder John Wilson to say of the socialite: “She is famous for who she hangs out with. She’s not famous for any talent she has yet exhibited.”
Pierce Brosnan was named worst supporting actor for Mamma Mia!
