Gigli Heads Up The Razzie Nominations
Love split couple BEN AFFLECK and JENNIFER LOPEZ look set to sweep the board at this year's RAZZIE AWARDS (04) - their flop film GIGLI has picked up an impressive nine nominations.
The MARTIN BREST-directed gangster comedy is nominated in the Worst Picture, Worst On-screen Couple, Worst Director, Worst Screenplay, Worst Supporting Actor, Worst Supporting Actress, Worst Actress and Worst Actor categories.
Other nominees in the Worst Picture race include DR SEUSS' THE CAT IN THE HAT, CHARLIE'S ANGELS: FULL THROTTLE, FROM JUSTIN TO KELLY and THE REAL CANCUN.
Razzies founder JOHN WILSON blames Affleck and Lopez's high-profile relationship for their popularity among voters.
He explains, "Ostensibly, we're talking about their on-screen performances, but I'm sure all the endless twaddle about their personal lives played into their being nominated.
"But it is an embarrassingly bad movie, and unfortunately, it's not a fun bad movie."
The Razzies will be handed out on 28 February (04), one day before the OSCAR ceremony.
