‘Bodyguard’ tops Razzie noms

The B.O. smash “The Bodyguard” and mega-budget bomb “Christopher Columbus: The Discovery” led worst-movie nominees Monday for the (Un)Lucky 13th Annual Razzie Awards.

Nominees for the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation’s annual spoof of the Academy Awards were announced by foundation president John Wilson two days before Wednesday’s disclosure of Oscar contenders.

“It’s a lousy year for movies and a great year for us,” he said. “I don’t know that there are five best movies this year, but I think we have five really rotten choices this year.”

The Golden Raspberry Awards, determined by more than 350 people from 26 states and five nations, will be announced March 28, “as always, 24 hours before that other award show,” the foundation said.

“This year’s five worst picture contenders include the $ 100 million-grossing goofball romance ‘The Bodyguard’ and that $ 47 million cinematic sinking ship ‘Christopher Columbus: The Disco Version,’ ” said Wilson.

“Christopher Columbus: The Discovery” got six nominations, just behind the seven nods for “The Bodyguard,” including worst picture and worst supporting actor for two of its stars, Marlon Brando and Tom Selleck.
