Madonna, Filmmaker Husband Capture 5 'Worst of Hollywood' Trophies - 2003-03-22


Singer-actress Madonna and her filmmaker husband Guy Ritchie have won five "Razzies" in the 23rd annual salute to the worst achievements in film.

Hollywood's Golden Raspberry Foundation awarded the spoof "anti-Oscar" for worst film to Swept Away. Mr. Ritchie won a separate award for worst director of 2002. Madonna shared another "Razzie" for "worst screen couple" with co-star Adriano Giannini. Swept Away, an American version of an acclaimed 1974 Italian film about a rich snob marooned with a handsome sailor, also received a trophy for worst remake or serial.

Madonna also won the Razzie for worst supporting actress for her brief role as a fencing instructor in the James Bond thriller Die Another Day. She tied for worst actress with another pop singer Britney Spears, who made her film debut last year in Crossroads.

Swept Away's five Razzies ties the record for the most awards received by a single film.

The Golden Raspberry Foundation announced the awards Saturday in Los Angeles - one day before the Hollywood film industry celebrates the best films of the year at the 75th annual Academy Awards.

Oscar winner Roberto Benigni was selected as worst actor of the year for his live action remake of Pinocchio.

Hayden Christiansen won as worst supporting actor for Star Wars Two: Attack of the Clones, while the film's director George Lucas shared a Razzie with co-writer Jonathan Hales for worst screenplay.

Britney Spears won a second award for worst original song - I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman from Crossroads.
