Halle Berry accepts Worst Actress Raspberry Award in person
UPI News Service, 02/27/2005
Halle Berry, who won a Razzie for Worst Actress of 2005 for "Catwoman," surprised fans by picking up the award in person.
Berry good-naturedly accepted the "award" at Saturday's 25th Golden Raspberry Awards in Los Angeles -- and she even brought along the Oscar she won for Best Actress in the 2001 feature "Monster's Ball."
"First of all, I want to thank Warner Bros." said Berry, "Thank you for putting me in this ... God-awful movie."
Berry joked that "Catwoman" was "just what her career needed" after winning an Oscar.
"I was at the top, and then 'Catwoman' just plummeted me to the bottom," she said. "I love it."
Berry also thanked her manager -- in a way.
"Next time, read the script first," she said.
"Catwoman" won four Razzies -- including Worst Picture, Worst Actress, Worst Director and Worst Screenplay.
John Wilson -- the founder of the Razzie Awards and the author of the new book "The Official Razzies Movie Guide" -- said Berry was only the second movie star ever to pick up a Razzie in person. The first was Tom Green, for the critical and commercial flop "Freddie Got Fingered."
