Tuesday morning we'll hear the nominations for this year's Academy Awards, the best in motion picture excellence. Today we get the Razzies, the awards for Hollywood's worst in 2005.
Son of the Mask led all nominees with eight nods, followed closely by The Dukes of Hazzard with seven nominations. Individually, the biggest targets were Tom Cruise, Jessica Simpson, and Jenny McCarthy.
The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation (they are to the Razzies what the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is to the Oscars) has even added a new category this year, Most Tiresome Tabloid Target, which "salutes the celebs we're all sick and tired Of." Amazingly, couch-hopping Tom Cruise was named twice for the new award.
Here are some of the highlighted categories. For a full list, see razzies.com.
- Tom Cruise, War of the Worlds
- Will Ferrell, Bewitched and Kicking & Screaming
- Jamie Kennedy, Son of the Mask

- Rob Schneider, Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo
- Jessica Alba, Fantastic 4 and Into the Blue
- Hilary Duff, Cheaper by the Dozen 2 and The Perfect Man
