Cruise and Holmes dominate Razzies

And the worst performance goes to...

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Bad sequels and remakes top the list of films going for the Golden Raspberry Awards (or Razzies) this year. Son of the Mask racked up an impressive eight nominations in Hollywood's annual celebration of the worst in movie making. Other worst film contenders include Rob Schneider sequel Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo, horror remake House of Wax and the big screen version of The Dukes of Hazzard.

Tom Cruise stands head and shoulders above other individual contenders with an impressive three Razzie nominations, as worst actor for War of the Worlds and a double spot in a newly created Razzie category of most tiresome tabloid targets. Cruise earns a nod both for his anti-psychiatry rants and his relationship with actress Katie Holmes, herself somewhat unfairly nominated for worst actress for her turn in Batman Begins. Holmes finds herself pitted against Jessica Alba (Fantastic Four) and Jennifer Lopez (Monster-in-Law) in this category.

Paris Hilton picked up two Razzie nods as worst supporting actress in House of Wax and most tiresome tabloid target. Meanwhile Ewe Boll is nominated for worst director award for his game adaptation, Alone in the Dark. Last year, Halle Berry earned plaudits for showing up to pick up her Razzie for her performance in Catwoman. You'd get long odds on the soon-to-be Mr and Mrs Cruise repeating this precedent in the likely event one or other of them scoops a prize.

"Winners" of the 26th Razzies will be crowned on 4 March, a day before the Oscars celebrate the best in films in 2005. A full list of nominations, and much more besides, can be found on the Razzies official website here. ®
