    Madonna Triumphs at Worst - Film Awards
    By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


    LOS ANGELES - March 22, 2003 -- Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie swept away the competition at the Razzies, an annual spoof of the Academy Awards singling out the worst achievements in film.

    ``Swept Away,'' the island-romance bomb that starred Madonna and was written and directed by Ritchie, took five Razzie Awards on Saturday, among them worst picture of 2002.

    Madonna tied for worst actress with fellow pop queen Britney Spears, who made her starring debut in ``Crossroads,'' another worst-picture contender.

    Ritchie was chosen worst director, while ``Swept Away'' earned Madonna a second award for worst screen couple with co-star Adriano Giannini. A remake of an acclaimed Italian film about a rich snob stranded with a hunky sailor, Madonna's ``Swept Away'' also received the trophy for worst remake or sequel.

    Madonna was named worst supporting actress for her brief cameo as a fencing instructor in the James Bond flick ``Die Another Day,'' for which she also sang the theme song.

    ``She's not even in the movie for two minutes, but she's so awful in that one scene, that for the whole rest of the movie, you cannot forget that your eyes and ears have been assaulted with the stupidity of her appearance,'' said Razzies founder John Wilson.

    As much as I hate Tom Green, I have to respect him for being the only person to EVER show up to collect their Razzie [​IMG]

    I think the big problem plaguing Madonna is the fact she has not gotten the right director to bring out the best in her. Small wonder why she's winning too many Razzies. [​IMG]

    I can't figure out why she keeps trying. She must be aware that anything she does as far as acting is only fodder for more jokes?

    I actually thought she was very good in "Desperately Seeking Susan", but I guess she played herself.
