Love those Razzies!!

“Son of the Mask,” Couch-Jumping Cruise Razzed
As if we needed the Razzie folks to tell us how superlatively sucking Son of the Mask was.
Nonetheless, the Jim Carrey-less sequel stands atop the field of 2005’s craptacular cinema, notching a leading eight nominations for the 26th Annual Razzie Awards: Worst Picture, Worst Actor for star Jamie Kennedy (filling in for Carrey), Worst Supporting Actor for Alan Cumming and Bob Hoskins, Worst Screen Couple (for Kennedy and anybody sharing the screen with him), Worst Director, Worst Screenplay and Worst Sequel/Remake.
And while its lameness isn’t up for debate, Son of the Mask actually has some serious competition for the distinction of Worst Film, namely: Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo, House of Wax, The Dukes of Hazzard and Jenny McCarthy’s blink-and-you-missed-it “comedy,” Dirty Love.
Not only was it a disaster year for Hollywood at the box office, but with Hollywood’s most reliably bankable star jumping the couch on Oprah, Razzie organizers decided to add a brand-new category: Most Tiresome Tabloid Target.
Naturally, the list is headed up by Tom Cruise (who doubled his displeasure with a Worst Actor nomination for War of the Worlds). He’ll square off against another double nominee, Paris Hilton (whose “performance” in House of Wax garnered a Worst Supporting Actress nod), as well as Britney Spears and Kevin Federline (nominated as “Mr. & Mrs. Britney) and the Simpsons, which in this case include Jessica, Ashlee and Nick.
Cruise’s betrothed didn’t escape the Razzies wrath, either. Katie Holmes nabbed a Worst Supporting Actress nomination for Batman Begins.
Joining Cruise and Kennedy in the Worst Actor race were Will Ferrell, dinged for the twin bill of turkeys Bewitched and Kicking & Screaming, Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson for Doom and Rob Schneider for foisting a Deuce Bigalow sequel on the world.
On the actress side, McCarthy (who also is up for Worst Screenplay and Worst Couple) will face off against Jessica Alba (Fantastic Four and Into the Blue), Hilary Duff (Cheaper by the Dozen 2 and The Perfect Man), Jennifer Lopez for Monster-in-Law and Tara Reid for playing a “genius anthropologist” in Alone in the Dark.
Formerly know as the Golden Raspberry Awards, the Razzies were founded in 1980 and chosen by 725 film professionals, film journalists and film fans willing to pay a $25 fee.
Per tradition, the Razzie ceremonies will be held the night before the Oscars, Mar. 4, at the Hollywood’s Ivar Theater.
