Good luck trying to get to their site this morning. We cache below, so you don't have to.


    Lohans KILLED ME,
    Murphys NORBIT,
    Sandlers CHUCK & LARRY
    Lead 28th RAZZIE Awards Race


    Eddie Sets a New Worst Achievement Record
    with 5 Nods in a Single Year


    In an awards season where the top-dollar ceremonies are all quaking in their boots wondering what stars (if any) will show up for their events, the one award show where the stars never show up is left wondering what all the fuss is about: As unaffected by the WGA writers strike as they are unconcerned about the massive star egos they poke fun at year-after-year, the Golden Raspberry Awards plan to forge ahead with their annual insult-fest whether The 80th Annual Academy Awards (aka The Giving Out of the Little Gold Naked Men) go on or not. Scheduled for 10am/PST on Saturday, February 23 at Magicopolis in Santa Monica (the day before this yearsOscars might be held) The 28th Annual RAZZIE Awards promise to be a real horse race. Voters for Hollywoods least-coveted trophy wound up putting three of their five Worst Picture nominees within one nod of each other, meaning anyone on this years List of Berry Bad Movies could go home with the bulk of the gold-spray-painted, $4.89 statuettes that signify their winners stank.

    Topping the field with 9 nominations is I KNOW WHO KILLED ME, a Lindsay Lohan vehicle that proved as dangerous for its star as any car she ever ran off the road. An oddball cross-breeding of the HOSTEL/SAW genre of teen torture porn with elements of the old PATTY DUKE SHOW, I KNOW stars Lohan as psychically connected twins. KILLED ME copped nominations as 2007s Worst Picture, Worst Screenplay, Worst Director and Worst Screen Couple (Lohan appearing opposite herself). It also pulled off the feat of the first ever double Worst Actress nod: Lohan is individually listed for each of the two characters she so lamely portrays. But last years Oscar loser Eddie Murphy managed to steal Lohans thunder by garnering himself a record-setting FIVE nominations in a single year. The Latex-laden, nearly laugh-free comedy NORBIT, in which Murphy plays three distinct (and decidedly stinky) characters won Eddie a chance to take home trophies for Worst Supporting Actor (as the Asian character Mr. Wong) Worst Supporting Actress (as the hideous 400 pound harpy Rasputia) and Worst Actor (as the title character) as well as having Murphy compete alongside himself for Worst Screen Couple. For having co-written the misbegotten mess, Eddie is also a Worst Screenplay nominee. Tying with NORBITs total of 8 nominations, and rounding out the Trifecta of the Truly Terrible, is 1999 Worst Actor winner Adam Sandlers gag-inducing gay romp I NOW PRONOUNCE YOU CHUCK & LARRY, the plot of which has Sandler and co-star Kevin James as New York firemen who pretend to be a married gay couple to scam medical benefits for James. In addition to Worst Picture, I NOW PRONOUNCE was pronounced a contender for Worst Actor (Sandler) Worst Supporting Actor (James) Worst Supporting Actress (Jessica Biel) and Worst Screen Couple (Sandler and EITHER James OR Biel). Rounding out the Worst Picture field are the BFF B.O. bomb BRATZ and the duddy sequel DADDY DAY CAMP. Other well-known names getting their share of blame in this years RAZZIE competition include former Oscar winners Cuba Gooding Jr. (Worst Actor for both DADDY DAY CAMP and NORBIT) Diane Keaton (Worst Actress for BECAUSE I SAID SO) and Jon Voight (Worst Supporting Actor for 4 titles, including BRATZ). Links to the complete list of this year's RAZZIE contenders appear in the left column of this page.

    Nominees were determined by mailing ballots to 747 voters in 44 U.S. states and 18 foreign countries. The RAZZIES were created in 1980 as a logical antidote to Tinsel Towns annual glut of self-congratulations by John Wilson, author of EVERYTHING I KNOW I LEARNED AT THE MOVIES and THE OFFICIAL RAZZIE MOVIE GUIDE. For more information on the awards history, or to arrange an interview with Wilson, please visit www.razzies.com or contact HeadRAZZberry@razzies.com

Apparently in retirement. Wikipedia says that the DGA discontinued the pseudonym in 1997 after Burn Hollywood Burn: An Alan Smithee Film came out.
