Sharon Stone and Basic Instinct 2 look set to sweep the board at the 27th Razzies - the annual celebration of all that is truly dire in the wonderful world of moviemaking.

The film has attracted no less than seven nominations: Worst Picture, Actress, Supporting Actor (David Thewlis), Director (Michael Caton-Jones), Sequel, Screenplay (Leora Barish and Henry Bean), and Screen Couple. The latter is for Stone's "lopsided breasts", which will face strong competition from Tim Allen and Martin Short (Santa Clause 3), Nicolas Cage and his bear suit (Wicker Man) and Hilary and Haylie Duff (Material Girls).

In fact, Hilary and Haylie Duff are also jointly nominated in the "Worst Actress" category because, as Razzies founder John Wilson explained: "We stuck the siblings together to allow room for more dreck."

Other notable inclusions in the 2007 line-up include: Lady In The Water and Wicker Man (Worst Picture); Lindsay Lohan and Jessica Simpson (Worst Actress for Just My Luck and Employee Of The Month, respectively; and Poseidon (Worst Remake or Rip-Off).

One star is, however, notable by his absence. Sly Stallone - who has enjoyed 30 Razzie nominations and 10 wins - did not make the cut despite widespread expectation that Rocky Balboa would be consigned to the dustbin of cinematic history. Wilson admitted: "At the first of the year, you could not have convinced me it wasn't going to be a Razzie contender. I would like to publicly say that Stallone has made a good movie."

The 27th Razzie winners will be announced on 24 February; the day before the Oscars. It remains to be seen if Ms Stone accepts the seemingly inevitable honour with the same good grace as previous laureat Halle Berry. Back in 2005, she romped to a Razzie for her stunning portrayal of Catwoman, and rather splendidly turned up to accept the honour in person. ®
