'The Love Guru' leads Razzie award nominations

Mike Myers’ spiritual comedy The Love Guru was the big, er, loser as the nominations for the 29th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards were announced today. The actor’s summer flop scored nods in seven categories, including Worst Actor (Myers), Worst Actress (Jessica Alba), and Worst Picture – where it appeared alongside Meet the Spartans, Disaster Movie, The Happening, The Hottie and the Nottie, and In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale. Al Pacino garnered a Worst Actor nomination for his work in 88 Minutes and Righteous Kill, while Paris Hilson was cited three times for her performances in The Hottie and the Nottie and Repo: The Genetic Opera. The “winners” will be announced on Feb. 21, the night before the Oscars ceremony. The full list of nominations is after the jump.
