2006 Razzie Awards Announced; "Basic Instinct 2" Leads the Pack

With the arrival of the Oscars comes the stench of the raspberries. The Razzie Awards, of course, which claims to "honor" the very worst of the past year's films ... but really they only focus on three or four turkeys and beat 'em senseless.

Here for your enjoyment are the wonderfully amusing and insightful Razzie Award winners:

Worst Picture: "Basic Instinct 2" -- only the Razzie crew calls it "Basically, It Stinks, Too." Cleverrrrr.

Worst Actress
: Sharon Stone for "Basic Instinct 2" (and on the press release, they actually re-mention "Basically, It Stinks, Too," as if it's the pinnacle of wit or something.)

Worst Actor
: Marlon Wayans and Shawn Wayans for "Little Man," which is odd because they're actually two different actors.

Worst Supporting Actress
: Carmen Electra for "Date Movie" and "Scary Movie 4" (The Razzie voters really need to see more movies.)

Worst Supporting Actor: M. Might Shyamalan for "Lady in the Water" (Actually ... great pick.)

Worst Director
: M. Might Shyamalan for "Lady in the Water" (OK, OK, I can name 50 directors from 2006 that deserved it more than Night did. This is just 'easy target' practice at this point.)

Worst Screen Couple
: Shawn Wayans and either Kerry Washington or Marlon Wayans in "Little Man" (It's just getting silly by now.)

Worst Remake or Ripoff: "Little Man" (Yes, for stealing from that old Bugs Bunny cartoon.)

Worst Prequel or Sequel
: "Basically, It Stinks, Too" (Sorry, that just never gets old.)

Worst Screenplay
: "Basic Instinct 2" (Yawn.)

Worst Excuse for Family Entertainment: "RV" (Yay, I had "RV" in my Razzies office pool.)

---

So basically they trashed three movies: "Little Man," "Lady in the Water," and "Basic Instinct 2," while movies like "BloodRayne," "Material Girls," "Van Wilder 2" and "Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector" escape the spotlight. Great.
