The Wayans brothers and Sharon Stone are topping this year's Razzie awards, the annual picks of the worst pictures of the year. Each of their films—Little ManI and Basic Instinct II, respectively—received seven nominations, including Worst Picture for both movies, Worst Actress for Stone and Worst Actor for both Marlon and Shawn Wayans.

"We stuck the siblings together to allow room for more dreck," said Razzies founder John Wilson.

The other worst-picture nominees were the fantasies "BloodRayne" and "Lady in the Water" and the thriller "The Wicker Man."

Joining Stone and the Duffs in the worst-actress category were Lindsay Lohan for "Just My Luck," Kristanna Loken for "BloodRayne" and Jessica Simpson for "Employee of the Month."

Stone previously won a Razzie as worst-actress for 1994's "The Specialist" and "Intersection."

"She's what we call a Razzie repeat offender. Perhaps even a recidivist," Wilson said.


Even though Basic Instinct II appears to be in the lead, I'm really crossing my fingers for the Wayans brothers to win (lose?) this one. Those guys have been sucking for years, and nobody's really called them on their bullshit. Perfect example: White Chicks.

To this day, I'm still unsure as to how everyone in media was looking away when that movie came out. White Chicks was overtly racist and sexist and, nevertheless, it grossed almost $70 million in the US alone. If Ben Affleck and Matt Damon pitched a movie called "Black Girls" to Paramount, and the film involved them being heavily made-up to resemble black women and then running around acting silly, they'd be physically tossed off the lot and the media would be up in arms.

Are you with me? Because here comes Little Man, a movie about a dwarf nobody can tell isn't a baby, even though he smokes, drinks and has tattoos and facial hair. Whaaaaaaaaaat? Really?

Here's to hoping those guys win the Razzie and then are never allowed to make a movie ever again.

PS Even if Sharon Stone's bad in Basic Instinct II, she still looks very pretty.

The site's still called MollyGood because it would probably be unwise to change the name of the whole blog now that it's been known as MollyGood for so long. It's the same concept as Tina Turner not changing back to her maiden name even though she got a divorce from her abusive husband, Ike Turner. I hope it's not confusing everyone. Cheers.

It would be silly to change the name of the site.

Besides, I thought her name wasn't actually Molly, just a nickname.

Although hollycord.com wouldn't be so bad. ;)

An overtly racist and sexist movie that grosses over $70 mil says more about the audience and (white)distributors than these 2. One of them was really good in Requiem for a Dream. Obviously they are smart business ppl.

I agree about the racist and sexist movie comment. It wouldn't be so bad if it went both ways, but it's clearly one-sided.

are you kidding me? there is a long rich history of white people making tons of money on overtly racist and sexist themes. you see what you want to see. Stepin Fetchit was the first black actor to become a millionaire beause of it.

/look it up.
//too many posts for one day

Not kidding you. Just because it's happened in the past doesn't mean it will ever happen again as overtly as in White Chicks. Also, I'm well aware of minstrelsy, but that doesn't mean PC guilt should allow the Wayans brothers to traipse around in white face.

Not PC guilt, just $$$. What percentage of the audience do you think was white? I'd guess a majority.

clarification: the "are you kidding me" was in reference to the "one-sided" post right above mine. Yeah, the movie's racist, but everyone's a little bit racist.

Unfortunately, the Wayans Brothers do NOT make funny movies. I am NOT "dissing" them because of their race, just saying--NOT FUNNY! Now, seeing them do STAND UP may be an entirely DIFFERENT story!
