Fahrenheit 911 Wins Razzies...In a Good Way

I really don't care about the Oscars too much. The Rasberries on the other hand, those are lots of fun.

The Razzies are the opposite of the Oscars, given out annually to the worst films of the year. This year, some glamour was added to the usually tame ceremony by the presence of Halle Berry. The Oscar winner showed up to receive her Worst Actress Razzie for her performance in Cat Woman. It marked the first time since 2001 that a winner actually showed up to receive their award.

Of more interest to politicos, however, was the numerous wins by Fahrenheit 911 -- not for Worst Film, but for poor acting performances. President George Bush took home the award for Worst Actor, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld won for Worst Supporting Actor and Britney Spears took home the award for Worst Supporting Actress.

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger also took home a prize, the lifetime achievement award for having received the most nominations during the first twenty-five years of the awards.

Chris Rocks mocking of the President may not have received the laughs it deserved, but at least one award show is still a part of the reality based community.
