Mike Myers' 'Love Guru', 'Disaster Movie' Favorites For 2008's Worst Movie

Mike Myers' 'Love Guru' and 'Disaster Movie' are favorites at the Razzies. The only problem is this is one awards show where you don't want to win.

Even so, Myers' comedy flop -- a movie that debuted fourth and couldn't stay in the box office top ten past its third week of release -- leads the field alongside 'Disaster Movie' for the awards that are meant to 'reward' the worst in cinema.

'The Love Guru' received seven nominations in all, including worst picture and worst-acting for Myers, Jessica Alba (photosJessica Alba photos), Verne Troyer and Ben Kingsley. In fact, one-time Oscar winner Kingsley admitted to taking the movie solely for the paycheck even before its release, probably realising terribly awful it was.

Meanwhile, 'Disaster Movie', which debuted seventh and took in less than half of Myers' movie received Razzie eight nominations of its own. The other worst-picture contenders include 'In The Name Of The King: A Dungeon Siege Tale', 'Meet the Spartans', 'The Happening' and, of course, Paris Hilton (photosParis Hilton photos)'s 'Hottie & the Nottie' -- which earned an embarrassing $27,696. That was just one of Hilton's three nominations, alongwith worst actress, worst screen couple and worst supporting actress in musical 'Repo! The Genetic Opera'.

Eddie Murphy, who led the way last year with three nominations for his work in 'Norbit', has two nominations this time, as worst actor and screen couple in another flop, 'Meet Dave'. The yearly tradition will continue as the Razzie 'winners' are announced on February 21, a day before the Oscars.
