Some Become Stars; Others Get Mooned

While some movie stars hope for a golden Oscar tonight, others will have to settle for a plastic raspberry.

The Razzies, honoring 1994’s worst film achievements, were awarded Sunday to Kevin Costner, Sharon Stone, O.J. Simpson and Bruce Willis’ “Color of Night.”.

The awards, counter to tonight’s Academy Awards, left winners with a plastic raspberry mounted atop a film reel. About 375 people, from members of the industry to friends of the founder, voted on the dubious honor organized by ad writer John Wilson.

“Color of Night,” the nomination leader with eight, “won” worst picture.

Costner “won” worst actor for “Wyatt Earp,” named worst remake or sequel.

Stone also was a double winner: worst actress for “Intersection” and “The Specialist” and half the worst couple for her role with Sylvester Stallone in “The Specialist.”

Simpson won worst supporting actor for “Naked Gun 33 1/3.”

Razzie for worst supporting actress went to Rosie O’Donnell for “Exit to Eden,” “The Flintstones” and “Car 54 Where Are You?”

“The Flintstones” took the screenplay Razzie, while Steven Seagal was named worst director for “On Deadly Ground.”
