Paris Hilton scoops triple Razzie dishonour

Heiress hits pits as Slumdog conquers Hollywood

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

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. ®
