Sharon Stone's Basic Instinct sequel appears to be have been a risk not worth taking after notching up seven nominations at next month's (24FEB07) Razzie Awards, including Worst Picture and Worst Actress Of The Year.
Competing against the film in the Worst Picture category is BLOODRAYNE, LADY IN THE WATER, The Wicker Man, and the SHAWN and Marlon Wayans comedy little man, which also received seven nominations including Worst Director.
The Wayans brothers share a Worst Actor nod battling against Little Man co-star Rob Schneider, The Wicker Man's Nicholas Cage, Larry The Cable Guy for LARRY THE CABLE GUY: HEALTH INSPECTOR. And Tim Allen has three nominations in the same category - for THE SANTA CLAUSE 3: THE ESCAPE CLAUSE, The Shaggy Dog and ZOOM.
Meanwhile, sisters HILARY and Haylie Duff are both nominated for Worst Actress for their roles in MATERIAL GIRLS. They will fight it out with Stone, Jessica Simpson for EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH, Lindsay Lohan for JUST MY LUCK and Kristanna Loken for BLOODRAYNE.
Stone - who has previously won the Razzie for Worst Actress for THE SPECIALIST and INTERSECTION - earns another mention for her "lopsided breasts" in the category for Worst Screen Couple.
The awards' founder, JOHN WILSON, says, "She's what we call a Razzie repeat offender. Perhaps even a recidivist."
