Tom Green's 'FREDDY' Gets Fingered
5 Times at 22nd Annual RAZZIE Awards



While the Hoity-Toity of Hollywood are holding their breath awaiting next Sunday's 74th Annual Academy Awards, the Hoi Polloi of the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation have already picked Tinsel Town's Top Turkeys in The 22nd Annual RAZZIE Awards. And the big "Winner" (If That's The Right Word) is MTV Host Tom Green and his widely reviled "shock comedy" FREDDY GOT FINGERED. The film, slammed by CNN as "the worst movie ever released by a major studio in Hollywood history," won a total of 5 gold-spray-painted $4.79 trophies, including Worst Picture. Four Awards went to Green himself, expected to be the first onscreen talent in The Annual Derby of Dis-Honor's 22 year history to attend and accept his Awards in person. Green was cited as 2001's Worst Actor, Worst Director, co-author (with Derek Harvie) of the year's Worst Screenplay and as Worst Screen Couple (Green and "Any Animal He Abuses"). "Winners" were announced the now-traditional 24 hours Before That OTHER Award Show, in ceremonies at The Abracadabra Theatre at MAGICOPOLIS, 1418 Fourth Street in Santa Monica. Complete with a Tacky Opening Number ("Hooray for What's No Good!") Tuxedoed Presenters, Envelopes and Clips of nominated films The RAZZIES are a lighthearted parody of Show Biz Award Shows in General (and The Oscars in particular).
The Foundation Members' choice for Worst Actress likely surprised no one: Mariah Carey in her screen debut, the stillborn/STAR IS BORN knockoff, GLITTER. Carey copped a whopping 60% of all votes cast in a field of five nominees. The balance of the RAZZIES went to one of 2001's Biggest Movie Disappointments, the monkey-brained Tim Burton version of PLANET OF THE APES. The film not only took Worst Remake or Sequel, it also won BOTH Supporting Awards: Original APES star Charlton Heston (also named for his work in CATS & DOGS and TOWN AND COUNTRY) was Worst Supporting Actor and former swimsuit model Estella Warren swam her way to Worst Supporting Actress as both The Human Love Interest in APES and the Character Equivalent of a Hood Ornament in Sylvester Stallone's formulaic Formula One drama DRIVEN. A complete list of "Winners" is attached.

Results were determined by sending ballots to more than 520 Golden Raspberry Award Foundation members throughout 38 U.S. states and 10 foreign countries. The Foundation currently has a development deal with Nash Entertainment, which is now pitching next year's 23rd Annual RAZZIES for possible broadcast.
