Gay icon Madonna didn't get much love from the Razzie Awards--or she got too much, depending on how you look at it. Her movie Swept Away, directed by husband Guy Ritchie, took home five Golden Raspberries at the 23rd annual Razzies, the Oscar spoof that "honors" the year's worst cinema. Swept Away was named worst picture of 2002, while Madonna took home worst actress (in a tie with fellow singer Britney Spears in Crossroads) and worst supporting actress (for her brief cameo in the James Bond movie Die Another Day). Swept Away also got nods for worst director, worst screen couple (Madonna and Adriano Giannini), and worst remake or sequel. This year's haul brings Madonna's career take to nine, tying her with Sylvester Stallone as top Razzie winner.
Other Razzie "honors" bestowed this year include worst actor (Roberto Benigni, Pinocchio), worst supporting actor (Hayden Christensen, Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones), worst screenplay (George Lucas and Jonathan Hales, Star Wars Episode II), worst original song (Spears's "I'm Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman," from Crossroads), and most flatulent teen-targeted movie (Jackass: The Movie).
