Gigli lands six Razzies at annual bash (2004)



Story by: Jack Foley

GIGLI took a total of six unwanted Golden Raspberry awards, at the least coveted ceremony of the awards season.

The Jennifer Lopez/Ben Affleck turkey, which was one of last year's biggest flops, took the worst actor, worst actress, worst movie and worst director accolades, among its haul.

The Razzies, as they are affectionately known, recognise the worst films of the year and are traditionally held the night before the Oscars.

Needless to say, there is no red carpet and stars very rarely put in an appearance - except for Tom Green, who attempted to make light of the situation when he was honoured with Freddy Got Fingered.

Gigli beat off strong competition from the likes of The Cat in the Hat, starring Mike Myers, in the adaptation of the classic Dr Seuss tale, and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.

But Gigli, which found Lopez as a lesbian assassin who falls in love with Affleck's hapless thug while babysitting a potential hit, was the obvious choice in all the major categories.

Its director, Martin Brest, was also 'humiliated', with worst director and worst screenplay titles.

The Cat in the Hat did not escape totally, however, as it triumphed in the new category of Worst Excuse for an Actual Movie, while Razzie favourite, Sylvester Stallone, 'achieved' a milestone by winning his 10th Razzie award, for Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over.

He now has a record tally of 30 nominations to his name.

And Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle was named worst remake or sequel, with Demi Moore named worst supporting actress.
