Mike Myers, Paris Hilton Lead Razzie Nominations
The Love Guru and The Hottie & The Nottie are decidedly not hot
Mike Myers may have to dust off his mantel to make room for his awards – if he has a fireplace in his basement.
The comic actor’s The Love Guru led the field at the Razzies – celebrating the worst from Hollywood last year – which were announced by Razzies founder John Wilson on Wednesday, a day before the Oscar nominations are to be revealed.
In all, Guru grabbed seven nods, including worst picture and worst performances by Myers, Jessica Alba, Verne Troyer and Oscar-winner Ben Kingsley.
Also in the running for worst picture: Disaster Movie, The Happening, In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, Meet the Spartans and The Hottie & the Nottie, which starred Paris Hilton, who’s up for worst actress and worst screen couple (with Joel David Moore) in the film.
Hilton also earned a worst supporting actress nomination for Repo! The Genetic Opera.
