    Default Tom Cruise and Jennifer Lopez Share Razzie Honours

    Tom and J-Lo top Razzie nominations
    January 31, 2006 - 9:31AM


    Tom Cruise and Jennifer Lopez were united in shame today when they topped the list of worst actor nominees in Hollywood's annual spoof of the Oscars, the Razzie Awards.

    The pair joined a string of tired remakes and movie sequels including comedy adventure Son of the Mask, which won a leading eight nods for the 26th edition of the Razzies when they were unveiled a day before tomorrow's Academy Award nominations.

    It was a disastrous year for Hollywood, according to the tongue-in-cheek Golden Raspberry Award Foundation, which has dishonoured Hollywood's good and great for nearly three decades.

    Narrowing the worst picture nominees down to just five films posed an unprecedented challenge, the foundation said, although Son of the Mask, a sequel to Jim Carrey's hit 1994 film The Mask, was the clear frontrunner.

    It took nods for worst picture, worst remake or sequel, worst actor for Jamie Kennedy, worst supporting actors for both Alan Cumming and Bob Hoskins, worst director for Lawrence Gutterman and worst screenplay.

    Competing against it for the dubious title of worst movie of 2005 were the movie version of television's The Dukes of Hazzard, hotel heiress Paris Hilton's horror film House of Wax, Dirty Love, and the sequel Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo.

    Actor Rob Schneider also bagged a worst actor nod for his turn in Deuce Bigalow, which the Razzies dismissed as a comedy sequel that no one but the star and producers thought was funny.

    Also vying for worst actor are Cruise, for his turn in Steven Spielberg's War of the Worlds, Kennedy for Son of the Mask and Will Ferrell, who won double recognition for his work in Bewitched, a movie version of a 1960s television show, and for Kicking and Screaming.

    Wrestler The Rock is also up for worst actor for the video game spin-off movie Doom.

    Lopez, a Razzie favourite following her "triumph" for 2003's Gigli, is vying for what the foundation called the "di-stink-tion" as worst actress for her part as a beleaguered bride in Monster-in-Law, opposite Jane Fonda.

    Also nominated for worst actress are starlet Jessica Alba for both The Fantastic Four and Into the Blue, Hilary Duff for Cheaper by the Dozen 2 and The Perfect Man.

    Hollywood socialite Tara Reid won dishonour for attempting to play a "genius" anthropologist in Alone in the Dark.

    Former Playboy Playmate Jenny McCarthy won a nod for Dirty Love, which also got her a worst screenplay nomination.

    In the supporting actress category were Carmen Electra for Dirty Love, Hilton for House of Wax, Tom Cruise's fiancee Katie Holmes for Batman Begins, singer Ashlee Simpson for Undiscovered and her sister Jessica Simpson for The Dukes of Hazzard.

    Screen icon Burt Reynolds won a nomination for worst supporting actor for both Hazzard and football comedy The Longest Yard, facing off against Cumming and Hoskins, Hayden Christensen for Star Wars III and Eugene Levy for Cheaper by the Dozen 2.

    Cruise and Holmes both managed additional nominations as the most tiresome tabloid targets of 2005, along with "Oprah Winfrey's Couch, The Eiffel Tower and Tom's Baby," the foundation said.

    The two caused a firestorm with their engagement and pregnancy and Cruise made a spectacle of himself by leaping on Winfrey's sofa during a show as he expressed his love for Holmes.

    Hilton, Britney Spears and her new family, the Simpson sisters and Nick Lachey are also up for most tiresome tabloid target.

    Burt Reynolds has made so many indifferent to poor movies since
    Deliverance that he's probably in their hall of Shame. Even
    the original Longest Yard was nothing to write home about.

    JLo always gets credit for being a better actress than a singer but I have yet to see the evidence. Anaconda or Maid in Manhattan anyone?? I won't even dignify the excerable Gigli with the description of 'acting'. That movie did for JLo's career the same as Glitter did for Mariah's. Neither have fully recovered.
