LOS ANGELES - Hoisting her Academy Award in one hand and newly won Razzie in the other, Halle Berry reveled in her career low point.

"Omigosh, oh my God," Berry gasped Saturday night, feigning excitement as she held her hand to her mouth and forehead. "I never in my life thought that I would be here, winning a Razzie. It's not like I ever aspired to be here, but thank you."

Berry was picked as worst actress for 2004's action bomb "Catwoman," which also took the prize for worst film at the 25th annual Razzies, an Oscar spoof that trashes Hollywood's worst.

"Shooting the sequel"? Yeah, in the same sense that "they shoot horses, don't they?"

At least she deserves the Razzie. She didnt insult her White mother at this presentation like she did at the Oscars.

Yes, indeed!

I say give her credit for having the good humor to show up and accept the award. Good for her.

I agree. So far, Halle Barry has been a class act. I hope she keeps it up.

Finally, a black actress wins the Razzie. Maybe she'll dedicate the award to all the terrible black actors and actresses that came before her who were never even considered for this honor.

Did she ask the presenter to "make her feel good"?

Yep, she's a real good girl.

If only she'd come over for dinner.

Right a class act. What was it last year? when she and Danzell? broke the"color barrier??" For pete's sake, no one but those jive ass chumps can vote for themselves. There are few things that totally push it to the end for me than these goons and their snow job on the "people" of the U.S. We broke the barrier, We did when no one would let us, we have opened the door for the rest of the A.A., C.P., N., A.O.A.D., what ever they call themselves today. How can anyone listen to them, any of them, any color of them, and even keep from getting sick or running to the 'puter??. Honestly, this isn't an attack on anyone, it's just I'm so tired of hearing supposedly intelligent people repeat the latest "coolness" from any of them.

Except when she publicly insulted her {white} mother.

Sounds like Spann Tillman was offended, not her mom!

Pretty sad to be offended by that. I doubt Spann or Tillman would be concerned with trying so hard to make something of nothing - like your made up grievance here - LOL!

Razzies founder John Wilson said the prizes were not meant to mock Moore's film, only the statements Bush and the others make while "putting their highly paid, highly skilled feet in their mouths repeatedly and sucking on them."

Yeah, because heaven forbid the Razzies mock self-important blowhards like Michael Moore, even though that kinda was the original point of the awards in the first place.

It's pretty sickening how everything has to be political now -- even the Razzies. Sheesh.
