Any honest Academy member will admit that Oscar voters are dealing with slim pickings for 2006. But at the other end of the quality scale, voters for this year's 27th Annual RAZZIE® Awards had literally dozens of deserving contenders to choose from. And choose they have...and RAZZ the nominees they will, in ceremonies to be held at 7:30pm/PST on Oscar eve, Saturday, February 24 at Hollywood's Ivar Theatre.

Heading the dis-honor roll of Worst Achievements in Film this year are a lascivious murder mystery that turned out to be a laugh riot, and a comedy nearly as devoid of laughs as Schindler's List: Sharon Stone as a "femme fatale" The L.A. Times called "footloose and panty-free" in Basic Instinct 2 and Shawn and Marlon Wayans in their brother Keenan Ivory Wayans' blatant knock-off of a 1954 Bugs Bunny cartoon, Little Man. Each racked up 7 shots at the spray-painted gold statuettes no one in Hollywood really wants to "win." Joining these films in the final circle as Worst Picture nominees are M. Night Shyamalan's brain-dead bedtime story (and box office dud) Lady in the Water, Oscar winner Nicolas Cage donning an unconvincing bear suit in the laugh-out-loud funny remake of the Australian thriller The Wicker Man, and a film helmed by the man many Internet users consider the worst director alive today, Uwe Boll's Bloodrayne.

The Wayans brothers and Cage will be competing for Worst Actor of 2006 against last year's "winner" Rob Schneider in The Benchwarmers, former TV funnyman Tim Allen, with a trio of terrible titles (The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, The Shaggy Dog and Zoom) and Larry the Cable Guy (Dan Whitney) as Larry the Cable Guy in Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector. Vying with Stone for Worst Actress will be repeat offender Jessica Simpson (nominated this year for Employee of the Month), teen-idol (and terrible role model) Lindsay Lohan in Just My Luck, newcomer Kristanna Loken in Bloodrayne and spelling-challenged risible siblings Hilary and Haylie Duff in Material Girls. Other well-known names and former Oscar darlings getting dinged with Golden Raspberry nods for 2006 include Ben Kingsley, Martin Short and Danny DeVito competing as Worst Supporting Actor, and RAZZIE® regulars Jenny McCarthy and Carmen Electra competing with LOST star Michelle Rodriguez, Kristin Chenoweth and Kate Bosworth (as an ultra-lame Lois Lane in Superman Returns) for Worst Supporting Actress. This year's newest RAZZIE® category salutes the dearth of quality G and PG rated movie fare in 2006: Nominated as Worst Excuse for Family Entertainment are Deck the Halls, Garfield: A Tale of Two Kitties, RV, The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause and The Shaggy Dog. A complete list of nominees is included with this press release.

The RAZZIES® were created in 1980 by lifelong cinemaniac and cynic John Wilson, author of both THE OFFICIAL RAZZIE® MOVIE GUIDE and EVERYTHING I KNOW I LEARNED AT THE MOVIES. Nominees were determined by mailing ballots to 737 Golden Raspberry Foundation members throughout 42 US states and more than a dozen foreign countries. Should they choose to accept their RAZZIES® "winners" receive a gold-spray-painted, golf-ball-sized raspberry atop a mangled super 8 film reel, with an estimated street value of $4.97.
