    25th Annual Golden Raspberry (RAZZIE®) Award Nominations

    Halle’s Berry Bad CATWOMAN, Oliver’s Stoned Epic

    ALEXANDER Lead 25th RAZZIE® Noms as 2004’s Worst



    A Complete LIST of All Nominees Appears Below This Text



    An Oscar® winner calamitously miscast as a cartoon character and a big budget epic that managed to be both historical and hysterical led the pack as Golden Raspberry Award Foundation members revealed their choices for 2004’s Worst Achievements in Film. Contenders for The Gala 25th Annual RAZZIES® were unveiled for the first time in a press conference celebrating both the Awards’ having reached the quarter century mark and the publication of Foundation founder John Wilson’s new book, THE OFFICIAL RAZZIE MOVIE GUIDE.



    In addition to CATWOMAN with 7 nominations and ALEXANDER with 6, this year’s Worst Picture list also includes the inexplicable, astoundingly unfunny sequel SUPERBABIES: BABY GENIUSES 2, Ben Affleck’s snowball-from-Hell yuletide “comedy” SURVIVING CHRISTMAS and the Wayans Brothers’ creepy, cross-dressing reverse-blackface farce WHITE CHICKS. Vying alongside Halle Berry for Worst Actress are Hilary Duff for CINDERELLA STORY and RAISE YOUR VOICE, Angelina Jolie for both ALEXANDER and TAKING LIVES and two pairs of risible siblings, Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen for NEW YORK MINUTE and The Wayans “Sisters” for WHITE CHICKS. Besides Colin Farrell’s comically intense portrayal of ALEXANDER, the Worst Actor field also features last year’s “winner” Affleck for both SURVIVING and JERSEY GIRL, Vin Diesel in CHRONICLES of RIDDICK, Ben Stiller (setting a new record with FIVE titles) and one of several political figures garnering RAZZIE nods this year, President George W. Bush as himself in FAHRENHEIT 9/11, for which performance he is also nominating as Worst Screen Couple paired with either Condoleeza Rice and/or His Pet Goat. For their appearances in FAHRENHEIT, both Rice and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld got Supporting nominations. And California’s current governor Ah-Nuld Schwarzenegger is also nominated as Worst Supporting Actor for his cameo as “Prince Hapi” in Worst Remake contender AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS. “The Uber-Nator” is also one of the contenders for a Special Commemorative RAZZIE as one of five Worst RAZZIE “Losers” of The First 25 Years – eligibility for which was determined by having amassed the most nominations over the years without ever actually “winning” a statuette. There are also categories dis-honoring The Worst Comedy, Drama and Musical of the First 25 Years. A complete list of nominations is included in this press release.



    Nominees were determined by mailing ballots to more than 650 film professionals, film journalists and film fans from 40 U.S. states and 15 foreign countries. Often called Tinsel Town’s tackiest Trophy, the RAZZIE Award itself is an intentionally cheapjack tchotchke featuring a golf-ball-sized, handcrafted RAZZberry atop a mangled Super 8 film reel that’s spray-painted gold and has an estimated street value of $4.97. Ceremonies will be held the now-traditional 24 hours BEFORE That Other Award Show: 7:30pm/PST Saturday, February 26 at the historic Ivar Theatre in Hollywood.

    Britney Spears for supporting actress in Fahrenheit 9/11? WTF?

    Ok.. :rolleyes I know the Razzies is a joke, but still. Ppfft.

    "Around the World in Eighty Daze?" :p

    I'm surprised Fahrenheit 9/11 got so many nominations. Must be a lot of Republicans on the nom committee.

    LOS ANGELES Feb 27, 2005 — Hoisting her Academy Award in one hand and newly won Razzie in the other, Halle Berry reveled in a career low point.

    "Omigosh, oh my God," Berry gasped Saturday night, feigning excitement. "I never in my life thought that I would be here, winning a Razzie. It's not like I ever aspired to be here, but thank you."

    Berry was named worst actress for 2004's action bomb "Catwoman," which also took the prize for worst film at the 25th annual Razzies, an Oscar spoof that trashes Hollywood's worst.

    President Bush won the worst-actor award for his appearance in news and archival footage of Michael Moore's satiric documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11." Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld was voted worst supporting-actor for "Fahrenheit 9/11," while Britney Spears' fleeting cameo in the documentary brought her the worst supporting-actress award.

    Razzies founder John Wilson said the prizes were not meant to mock Moore's film, only the statements Bush and the others make while "putting their highly paid, highly skilled feet in their mouths repeatedly and sucking on them."

    Berry was the first Oscar winner to be dishonored by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation, and the first to accept a Razzie in person since Tom Green did so for his part in 2001's "Freddy Got Fingered."

    Berry, who wore a simple black dress, explained why she showed up at the ceremony.

    "When I was a kid, my mother told me that if you could not be a good loser, then there's no way you could be a good winner," she said.

    However, she added, "I hope to God I never see these people again!"

    Schwarzenegger, who gave up Hollywood to become California governor, was chosen worst Razzie loser of the first 25 years, a special prize given to actors who received the most nominations without ever winning a Razzie. His latest loss also came Saturday, to Rumsfeld in the supporting category, in which Schwarzenegger was nominated for "Around the World in 80 Days."

    Chosen by about 675 voters, Razzies also were awarded for worst films of the group's first 25 years: Drama, "Battlefield Earth"; comedy, "Gigli"; and musical, "From Justin to Kelly."

    I agree that Catwoman was a dumb career move for Halle but at least she had the guts to show up in person to accept her "award". I'm guessing those people don't expect to see their "winners".

    I think the only nominated movie I've seen was Alien vs. Predator. Loved it. Oh well.
    I’m haunted a little this evening by feelings that have no vocabulary and events that should be explained in dimensions of lint rather than words.

    I actually really enjoyed White Chicks. I laughed continually throughout. (Oh, I was a Spice World fan too...)
