Basic Instinct 2 Takes Home Four Razzies

Posted on February 25, 2007

RazziesAs we predicted earlier, Basic Instinct 2 has dominated this year's Razzie Awards -- the awards given for the worst film making and the worst acting. Basic Instinct 2 took home four $4.97 trophies, among them Worst Picture, Worst Screenplay and Worst Prequel or Sequel. The fourth award was the 2006 Worst Actress trophy which went to actress Sharon Stone. It was an easy prediction to make since the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation members kept referring to the movie as Basically, it Stinks, Too.

Bloodrayne director Uwe Boll managed to squeak by without "winning" one of the Razzie awards. It is amusing to see M. Night Shyamalan winning both Worst Supporting Actor and Worst Director for the same film, Lady in the Water. About M. Night Shyamalan the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation said, "M. Night Shyamalan, who blew off a multi-million-dollar, multi-picture deal with Disney to get his thrill-free-thriller Lady in the Water made, was rewarded for his megalomania with two Razzies: He was named both Worst Director and, for casting himself in a pivotal role in his own film, was also chosen as Worst Supporting Actor."
