Lindsay Lohan Racks Up the Razzies

I Know Who Killed MeLindsay Lohan - the recent focus of a nude pictorial - has just now earned a heap of awards for her turn as a stripper.  Unfortunately, it’s not the kind of merits she was hoping to achieve.

While Hollywood will be celebrating the Best of the Best today, Lohan will have to deal with being this year’s Worst of the Worst.  Her last completed film, , garnered a record eight statues at yesterday’s 28th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards.  Up until now, the most any film had attained was seven.  (Both Showgirls and Battlefield Earth have reached that mark.)

Lohan, like , earned three awards yesterday for their acting work.  Lohan tied herself for Worst Actress while also scoring one for Worst Screen Couple (since she played two characters).  Murphy snagged his trophies for his three roles in .  (Dreamgirls seems oh so long ago now.)

Congratulations to this year’s winners…

2008 Razzie Award Nominations

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Awards, Celeb News, Celebrity Gossip,

I Know Who Killed Me/ Lindsay Lohan, which is sort of a tongue-in-cheek antithesis of the , recently released their nominations for the worst of the worst. Celebs who topped the list include recently wed - no wait, - Eddie Murphy and .

Alright. Lindsay has taken a lot of flak for her multiple roles in - the film which received a Razzie nom for - but let me say again that I liked the film. (But then, I’m a Lohan fan.)  Meanwhile, Murphy picked up several nominations (okay, eight) for his duplicity in , giving him a record-breaking number of Razzie nods for 2007. No one’s ever received that many before.

, I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry and also received nominations while was included in the Worst Actress category for three movies (though rumor has it Lohan will give her stiff competition for that particular ).

Winners will be announced February 23, a day before the .

Worst Movie Titles of 2007 (So Far)

DescriptionThis weekend’s Joaquin Phoenix/Mark Wahlberg flick has been driving me batty for weeks—and I haven’t yet seen the film.  I don’t even have a problem with the trailer.  The movie simply suffers from a horrible case of crap-title-itus.

We Own the Night?  Could that be more vague?  Instead of envisioning a cops vs. mafia film, all I can see is the now-defunct (yet great) soap opera Edge of Night.  And while I understand the film’s title would be explained if I actually watched it,  that doesn’t excuse it’s existence.  The box office shelf life for movies is extremely short these days; more attention should be paid to the little things.  I’m an extremely shallow person who often judges books by their cover.  I need a proper teaser.

And believe me—‘craptitleitus’ does not discriminate.  Great movies, movies actually worthy of attention, often become victims of this affliction.  Poor marketing can affect anything and everyone.

So to honor We Own the Night’s crap-status, I’m going to list my Worst Titles of 2007 (thus far).

Box Office Breakdown:  Audiences Not Yet Tuckered Out

Rush Hour 3

Spider-Man 3, Shrek the Third, Pirates, Ocean’s, Bourne and now Rush Hour 3.  All six three-quels premiered directly at the top of the heap this summer.

Unfortunately, a six-year gap between the second and third Rush installments may have led to what some would consider slightly disappointing receipts.  On any other occasion, a $50 weekend would be something to brag about.  But considering it pales to the $67.4 million brought in by the 2001 predecessor, it’s only worth a pat on the back.

But really, the Disappointment of the Week honor should really fall on Cuba Gooding Jr.  When you’re accepting rejected scripts from the man who played Norbit, you have to wonder where it all went wrong (two words: Chill Factor).  Sadly, Daddy Day Camp was originally slated to be a straight-to-video release but somehow tested well enough to be released in theaters.  Who knows?  Maybe Gooding can pull a Halle and go straight-from-Oscar-to-Razzie.

Box Office Breakdown: 300 Tears It Up

300

Ghost Rider and Wild Hogs step aside.  Throngs of men in need of a testosterone-laden movie were apparently craving more than just motorcycles.  According to the latest box office numbers, what they really needed were swords.  And blood.  And Spartan women. 

Trapped inside a crowded theater this weekend, I knew 300 would be successful.  But who could have guessed it would be this big??  The latest movie to be based on a Frank Miller graphic novel raked in nearly $71 million.  That’s the largest opening for a movie in March…ever.  Additionally, it was the 3rd largest opening for an ‘R’ rated movie (right behind The Matrix Reloaded and The Passion of the Christ).
