George Bush, Halle Berry Share Worst Film Honors
Sunday February 27 3:03 AM ET
George W. Bush won the "Razzie" worst actor of the year award on Saturday for his performance as president in "Fahrenheit 9/11" but his moment in Hollywood's dubious spotlight was eclipsed by Halle Berry , who actually turned up to receive her embarrassing accolade.

Berry was named worst actress of 2004 by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation for her performance in "Catwoman" and she showed up to accept her "Razzie" carrying the Oscar she won in 2002 for "Monster's Ball."

"They can't take this away from me, it's got my name on it!" she quipped. A raucous crowd cheered her on as she gave a stirring recreation of her Academy Award acceptance speech, including tears.

She thanked everyone involved in "Catwoman," a film she said took her from the top of her profession to the bottom.

"I want to thank Warner Brothers for casting me in this piece of shit," she said as she dragged her agent on stage and warned him "next time read the script first."

It is rare for a Razzie winner to show up at the spoof awards held on the night before Oscars -- but Berry did, saying her mother taught her that to be "a good winner you had to be a good loser first." She received a standing ovation.

Gotta love Halle!

I think the only other celebrity to ever accept the Razzie in person was Tom Green, who "won" for Freddie Got Fingered :lol: .

"I want to thank Warner Brothers for casting me in this piece of shit," she said as she dragged her agent on stage and warned him "next time read the script first."

Perhaps she should have read it too. Pretty dumb to take on a role without reading the script. Having said that, she's a good sport to have turned up and, yes, it probably is a clever piece of marketing. But if it is, then hats off to her or whoever thought of it. :cool:

I personally don't think it was this bad-- I got the opportunity to see it on a flight from Fort Myers to New Wark. Good time pass if I may say so :lol: And that outfit was da bomb :hearts:

That's what I love about Halle: she takes the good with the bad and admits when she has made a mistake. Even if she did it for marketing purposes, she still went and had a good time with it. How many actors, especially Oscar winners, do we know how would actually show up and accept an award that tells them they were the worst actors of the year? Not many.

Kudos to Halle for having a great sense of humor.

of course it was, but it still required guts and shows she isn't full of herself.

she is still an actress in high demand who has shown she can act, so it's not like she's paris hilton.

nobody sees that she only shows up to get some publicity?
I mean last year she only did crappy parts, and her showing up WITH HER OSCAR, doesn't that mean she shows up to remind holywood she won one? to make them hire her for good parts?
I don't know why this proves she has any sense of humour, or is genuine for that matter...she seems to me she's ready to do anything to save her career that's all....
:confused:

It is refreshing for her to turn up for the award, and to handle the whole thing with good grace. :)

Though perhaps if she had told the world it was a crappy movie back when she was promoting it, it could have saved people the cost of a ticket... ;)

true, a master-class move by Halle. I mean look at the great reaction it has triggered here. :lol: but really, full props to her for actually going there and accepting the award. Halle is just simply awesome( and beautiful) and classy and sexy and.... :hearts: :hearts: :hearts: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool:
