What a fitting post to follow-up our last "Norbit" discussion :

Seems Eddie Murphy's comedy has received eight Razzie nominations, including five for Murphy alone, more than anyone has ever gotten in a single year. (In case you didn't know, Razzies are the flipside of the Oscars, honoring actors for incredibly bad performances.)

Besides worst picture, "Norbit" had nominations for Murphy as worst actor in the title role, supporting actress as Norbit's big-boned wife, supporting actor as an Asian man and worst screen couple for Norbit opposite either of Murphy's other characters. Murphy also shared a screenplay nomination for co-writing "Norbit."

"We decided that each of his characters was so offensive that he deserved individual nominations," said Razzies founder John Wilson.
