Mike Myers and Paris Hilton have won three Razzie Awards each, including Worst Actor and Worst Actress respectively
Mike Myers and Paris Hilton have won three Razzie Awards.
Mike's movie 'The Love Guru', which he co-wrote and starred in, was 'honoured' with Worst Picture and Worst Screenplay, while Mike was named Worst Actor.
The organiser of the Razzies - which gives prizes to the worst films of the year and is the antithesis of the Oscars - John Wilson said: "This is one of those auteur-of-the-awful situations. Mike wouldn't collect his prizes. I think people are tired of him in general. He hasn't really made a good movie in quite some time."
Paris was named Worst Actress for her role in 'The Hottie and the Nottie' at the spoof awards - full title Golden Raspberry Awards.
The 28-year-old socialite was also given the Worst Supporting Actress prize for her part in 'Repo! The Genetic Opera' and Worst Screen Couple for her pairing with either of her 'The Hottie and the Nottie' co-stars Christine Lakin or Joel David Moore.
John said of Paris: "She is famous for who she hangs out with. She's not famous for any talent she has yet exhibited."
Pierce Brosnan was named Worst Supporting Actor for 'Mamma Mia!', while 'Indiana Jones: Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' took the Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel prize.
