Paris Hilton scoops triple Razzie dishonour
Heiress hits pits as Slumdog conquers Hollywood
Paris Hilton has made movie history by scooping the worst actress and worst supporting actress gongs in the Golden Raspberries.
The celebrity airhead scored the dishonour of being voted the worst actress in Hollywood for her performances in The Hottie and the Nottie and Repo! The Genetic Opera. Completing a notable hat trick she also appeared as part of the worst screen couple, alongside The Hottie and the Nottie co-stars Christine Lakin and Joel David Moore.
Voters for The 29th annual Razzie Awards recognised Mike Myers´ The Love Guru as the worst film of 2008, handing it three gongs, including worst actor for Myers himself.
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull secured the worst prequel, remake, rip-off or sequel award on Saturday ahead of Tinsel's Town annual backslapping ceremony.
On Sunday Slumdog Millionaire won a deserved eight Oscars, including best director for Danny Boyle, at the Oscars. Six-times nominated Kate Winslet finally picked up a statuette for her role as a former concentration camp guard in The Reader, an award-pleasing turn spookily foreshadowed by her appearance in Extras, when she spoofed herself as a nun in a holocaust flick only interested in the role because it gave her an excellent chance at an Academy Award.
The one major surprise of the night came when Sean Penn secured his second Oscar for his role as gay activist Harvey Milk in Milk, defeating Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler) for the coveted best actor award.
Full Monty scribe Simon Beaufoy won best adapted screenplay for Slumdog Millionaire while Penelope Cruz became the first Spanish woman to win an Oscar for her role as a supporting actress in Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Heath Ledger won a posthumous best supporting actor statue for his turn as the Joker in The Dark Knight. ®
Whaddya mean, well deserved?
Hang about, hang about: since when did El Reg suddenly become an authority on good movies? (As in the "well deserved" Oscar for Slumdog Wotsit.)
Fact is, Slumdog Wotsit is over hyped shite: it starts off OK but after those opening 30 seconds it's downhill all the way to an ending more sweetly vacuous than any climax ever reached by the much-maligned Ms Hilton.
Basically, those who give out the Oscars know sod all and are anyway all related to Tommy Lee Cooper-Jones, whose 'No Country For Old Men' could at least have been retitled on DVD to read 'No Movie For Any Viewer With Half A Brain'.
Come on, El Reg. Leave the movie reviewing to those who know nothing about it. And stop glorifying in the alleged failure of poor Paris: she puts everything she has into a performance, takes direction well, and has been known to push the eiderdown, if not the envelope, many a time. I think she's wunnerful.
Paris is for looking at
Paris is a beautiful young woman and the envy of most of the women I know, so they decry her for all kinds of unreasonable reasons, but when were women ever reasonable?
As for acting, well, does it matter ? We already know that all the women voted against her because they couldn't bear to have her up there in front of us men ... and it would alsop remind the women of their own shortcomings (not that we men actually care, we love them just how they are ! ). The men voted against her because their wives told them to --- and warned them about what they wouldn't get if they did !!
I think she's great --- no computer scientist --- not a mathematician --- not an actress, but a lovely young lady who is just so easy on the eye.
serves you right for getting a bootleg copy! :D
