Uwe Boll Carves Impressive Swath of Disrepute With Nine Razzie Nominations

When we first saw a leaked version of the 2008 Razzies Shortlist a few weeks back, we bemoaned the lack of nominations for Seven Pounds, and were dismayed by the possible inclusion of Zac Efron on this year's Schadenfreude-laden ballots. However, now that the final nominations for the 2008 Golden Raspberry Awards have been announced, HSM disciples can breathe a sigh of relief, for their body-hairless hero did not make the final cut. Rather, distressed comedian Mike Myers and internet punching bag Uwe Boll lead the way, the latter being singled out for the organization's first Career Achievement dis-honor since the rubber shark from the Jaws series took the prize home in 1988.
