LINDSAY LOHAN and EDDIE MURPHY have been named and shamed as the worst actors
of 2007, after landing a spray-painted trophy apiece at the Golden Raspberry
Lohan’s movie I Know Who Killed Me broke records by scooping eight of the
nine prizes it was nominated for at the spoof Oscars ceremony – nicknamed the
Razzies – in Los Angeles on Saturday (23Feb08).
Lohan alone managed to win two – for Worst Actress and Worst Screen Couple,
for a scene in the movie in which she appears alongside herself.
Worst Film winner I Know Who Killed Me has smashed the unenviable record set
by John Travolta-starring sci-fi Battlefield Earth and stripper drama
Showgirls, which each scored seven wins at previous ceremonies.
Murphy was awarded three of the four prizes in the worst acting categories
for the trio of characters, male and female, he played in the critically mauled
but commercially successful Norbit.
Due to the prize-winning dominance of I Know Who Killed Me and Norbit, Daddy
Day Camp was the only other movie to be humiliated with a Razzie gong, for
Worst Prequel or Sequel.
