Lohan + Murphy Lead Razzie Nominations

LINDSAY LOHAN and EDDIE MURPHY both scored multiple nominations for the 2008 Golden Raspberry Awards - honouring the worst movies and performances of the past year. The annual ceremony - known as the Razzies - is a spoof of the Oscars, with the gongs handed out a day before the famed Academy Awards. Lohan's 2007 movie I Know Who Killed Me received a staggering nine nods in the nominations, which were announced on Monday (21Jan08) - a day before the Oscar nominees are revealed (22Jan08). The film is tipped in several categories including Worst Picture, Worst Director for Chris Siverston and Worst Actress for Lohan. The Mean Girls star is nominated in this category twice as she played two different parts in the film. Golden Raspberry founder John Wilson insists Lohan's thriller deserves to lead the way at the 2008 ceremony. He says, "Lohan's movie played like a cross between the torture tale Hostel and The Patty Duke Show. For worst actress, Lohan polled more heavily than any actor since Sofia Coppola in The Godfather Part III. "I Know Who Killed Me is the most fabulously brainless movie since Showgirls, which Razzie voters picked as the worst movie of the 1990s. By the end of it, you still don't know what happened. Can I please have my hour and 50 minutes back?" Eddie Murphy's 2007 comedy Norbit received eight nominations, including two for Murphy himself for Worst Actor and Worst Actress - as he also played the wife of the main character in the film. Wilson adds about Murphy's performance, "We decided that each of his characters was so offensive that he deserved individual nominations." The other Worst Picture nominees were Bratz, Daddy Day Camp with Cuba Gooding Jr. and I Now Pronounce You Chuck + Larry, which starred Adam Sandler. Sandler and Gooding Jr. join Murphy in the Worst Actor category, along with Nicolas Cage for Ghost Rider and Jim Carrey for The Number 23. Lohan was cited twice as Worst Actress for I Know Who Killed Me, while the four Bratz stars - Logan Browning, Janel Parrish, Nathalia Ramos and Skyler Shaye - shared a nomination. Also nominated were Jessica Alba for three films, Awake, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer and Good Luck Chuck; Elisha Cuthbert for Captivity; and Diane Keaton for Because I Said So.
