 Print Article: 'Bennifer' sweep Razzie awards
The stinker, a rambling tale of a lesbian hitwoman played by the Latin diva, won the worst film of 2003 trophy at the Golden Raspberry award, or Razzies, Tinseltown's antidote to the Oscars which will be held tomorrow.
The gracious Razzie trophy award is a handcrafted gold spray-painted golf-ball-sized raspberry atop a mangled reel of Super 8 film, "with an estimated street value of $US4.89 ($A6.36)," organisers said.
The Razzies were launched by John Wilson in 1980, who describes himself as a "lifelong cynic and cinemaniac" as a parody of Hollywood frenzied series of annual awards that culminates in the Oscars.
