Lindsay Lohan sweeps Razzies

Eight gongs for I Know Who Killed Me

Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

Lindsay Lohan has been honoured for her contribution to cinema with no less than three Razzies - two worst actress gongs and a worst screen couple award for her twin roles in I Know Who Killed Me - on a night when the film broke the all-time record for Golden Raspberries.

The Lohan vehicle also picked up trophies for Worst Horror Movie, Screenplay, Director, Remake or Rip-Off, and Picture, making a grand total of eight. The tally confirmed I Know Who Killed Me as the greatest Razzie laureat to date, beating even Showgirls and Battlefield Earth's impressive seven appearances apiece on the celluloid outrage podium.

Eddie Murphy, meanwhile, was crowned Worst Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress and Actor for Norbit, of which the less said the better.

Finally, bringing up the rear was Daddy Day Camp, which walked with a single Worst Prequel or Sequel Razzie.

Back in the real world, the 80th Oscars last night saw No Country for Old Men take Best Picture. Joel Coen and Ethan Coen shared the directing honours, and the movie's trophy cabinet also now boasts Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Actor in a Supporting Role (Javier Bardem) statuettes.

Jason Bourne's third cinematic outing - The Bourne Ultimatum - proved its technical prowess with best sound mixing, sound editing and film editing Oscars, although film fans can argue whether The Golden Compass really did outperform Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End in the visual effects department. ®

Happily, Ms Lohan has enjoyed rather more success with her recent nude "Marilyn Monroe" photo shoot for New York magazine.

The resulting snaps (NSFW), recreating the 1962 session with photographer Bert Stern, have proved so popular they last week crashed the publication's website as eager punters rushed to count Ms Lohan's copious freckles.
