    Razzie Nominations Announced

    Madonna, Britney lead Razzies

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Voters for the Razzies, an annual spoof of the Academy Awards, have a message for Britney Spears and Madonna: Don't quit your day jobs as pop divas.

    Spears' teen buddy flick Crossroads had a leading eight Razzie nominations and Madonna's island-romance bomb Swept Away received seven, including worst picture and worst actress for both movies.

    Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones also received seven nominations, among them worst picture and director for George Lucas, creator of the sci-fi saga.

    The other worst-picture contenders are Eddie Murphy's sci-fi comedy The Adventures of Pluto Nash and Roberto Benigni's live-action version of Pinocchio.

    Nominees for the 23rd annual Razzies, organized by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation, were to be announced Monday, a day before Oscar nominations. Razzie "winners" will be announced March 22, the eve of the Oscar ceremony.

    Madonna personally had four nominations: Worst actress for Swept Away, directed by her husband, Guy Ritchie (a nominee for worst director and worst screenplay); worst screen couple, paired with Adriano Giannini in Swept Away; worst supporting actress for the James Bond adventure Die Another Day; and worst song for the Die Another Day title tune, which she co-wrote.

    What was so bad about Swept Away, a remake of a 1975 Italian film about a rich snob stranded on an island with a handsome sailor?

    "What wasn't?" said Razzies founder John Wilson. "It's a really awful remake of a highly regarded movie. I think it's the most blatant example of the fact that Madonna simply cannot act. It's as though she decided she's going to be a movie star and will keep inflicting these movies on us till we cry uncle. But this one may finally end her film career."

    Madonna previously received four worst-actress Razzies for such movies as Shanghai Surprise and Who's That Girl? The Razzies also named her worst actress of the 20th century.

    Spears, whose pop-queen career arc has drawn comparisons to Madonna's, also could continue her predecessor's tradition of bad acting, Wilson said.

    "Britney Spears is a Madonna wannabe," Wilson said. "Madonna is on the outs, and Britney could be picking up the torch, or the spear, perhaps."

    Besides Madonna and Spears, worst-actress nominees are Angelina Jolie for Life or Something Like It; Jennifer Lopez for Enough and Maid in Manhattan; and Winona Ryder for Mr. Deeds.

    Benigni was nominated in the actor, director and screenplay categories for Pinocchio. Other worst-actor contenders are Giannini for Swept Away; Eddie Murphy for Pluto Nash, I Spy and Showtime; Steven Seagal for Half Past Dead; and Adam Sandler for Adam Sandler's 8 Crazy Nights and Mr. Deeds.

    The Razzies added a new category, most flatulent teen-targeted movie, meant to "dishonor the often moronic movies Hollywood is forever aiming at the acne-and-braces set." Nominees are Adam Sandler's 8 Crazy Nights, Crossroads, Jackass: The Movie, Scooby-Doo and XXX.

    I actually like Jolies performance in Life or Something Like It.

    Madonna's been "on the outs" for twenty years now. You'd think people would stop saying that.

    I didn't mind Jolie in "Life or Something Like it" either.

    Madonna is a poor actress, but giving her awards like this isn't going to stop her

    nope, it will stop when people stop paying attention to her. I've always though she was a waste for the last 15 years. But as long as her agent and P.R. people keep hyping her and keep her name in the public eye, magazines like US and People will keep gushing over her like she has real talent.

    Madonna is one of my favorite people. She has true guts. She never lets what anyone says bother her, and I think that is really cool. It's Madonna that keeps pushing the envelope and paving the way for others to follow.

    I agree. I like Madonna. She's not the greatest actress, but she's not the worst. People enjoy slamming her.

    Of course, I didn't see Swept Away.

    As far as Britney. She wishes she had as much talent as Madonna has in her pinkie. The biggest difference between the two is about 150 IQ points.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.
