Myers' Guru Gets No Love From Razzies

Karma's a bitch for Guru Pitka.

The Love Guru, Mike Myers' latest, mildly incendiary foray into comedy has come out tops in Hollywood's annual antidote to self-congratulatory celebrations, scoring a leading seven nominations for this year's Golden Raspberry Awards.

The film swept all the major categories and virtually the entire cast—save for Justin Timberlake's sock-assisted performance—was Razzie'd. Among the dishonors racked up for the film were Worst Picture and Worst Acting nods for Myers, Verne Troyer, Oscar winner Ben Kingsley and Jessica Alba, who was nominated for crimes against the thespian art for both Guru and The Eye.

As misery loves company, Myers' team will be happy to share the disses. Paris Hilton, Eddie Murphy, Al Pacino, Kate Hudson, Cameron Diaz, Pierce Brosnan, Kim Kardashian and Ashton Kutcher are also among the nominees.

Hilton was a one-woman Razzie machine, racking up a trifecta: Worst Actress for The Hottie and the Nottie, Worst Supporting Actress for Repo: The Genetic Opera and as one-half of the year's Worst Screen Couple when paired with either Hottie costar Christine Lakin or Joel David Moore.

Hilton's Hottie and the Nottie also scored a nomination for one of the year's Worst Pictures, up against The Love Guru, The Happening, In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale and Meet the Spartans.

Meanwhile, Myers is joined as a Worst Actor nominee by Witless Protection's Larry the Cable Guy; Meet Dave's Murphy, who also scored a Worst Screen Couple nomination (or is it two?) for acting opposite himself; Pacino, who was nominated for his bad work in both 88 Minutes and Righteous Kill; and Mark Wahlberg, who also doubled up with The Happening and Max Payne.

As for the women, it's a nine-way horse race thanks to the group Worst Actress nomination for the cast of The Women. The joint effort of Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Debra Messing, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Meg Ryan compete against Alba, What Happens in Vegas' Diaz, Fools' Gold and My Best Friend's Girl's Hudson and, of course, Hilton.

Finally, Razzie faux-teur extraordinaire Uwe Boll has been singled out this year as the recipient of the most special category of the night, Worst Career Achievement. Described by the Razzies as "Germany's answer to Ed Wood," Boll is also up for Worst Supporting Actor after playing himself in Uwe Boll's Postal, Worst Screen Couple when paired with "Any Actor, Camera or Screenplay" and Worst Director.

The 29th Annual Razzies will be handed out Feb. 21, per tradition the day before the Oscars.
