Sarah Palin nominated for 'worst actress' Razzie


February 27, 2012 - Washington

Sarah Palin has been nominated for a Golden Raspberry Award as worst actress for her "performance" in the documentary "The Undefeated," a film about her political career.

The Razzies, which purport to salute the worst in the world of movies each year, typically are presented the day before the Academy Awards but their schedule was shifted this year.

The nominees were released Saturday and the winners (or losers, depending on how you look at it) are to be announced April 1, the Politico reported.

Palin's fellow nominees in the worst actress category are Kristen Stewart ("Breaking Dawn"), Sarah Jessica Parker (both "New Year's Eve" and "I Don't Know How She Does It") and two men performing in drag, Martin Lawrence ("Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son") and Adam Sandler, whose nomination for "Jack and Jill," was one of a record 11 he received Saturday in various Razzie categories.

Joining the Alaska's former governor as Razzie nominees also include noted performers like Al Pacino (a supporting actor nod for "Jack and Jill") and Nicolas Cage (worst actor for "Drive Angry").

"The Undefeated," a film written and directed by Stephen K. Bannon, debuted in theaters on July 15.

But a film of similar name - "Undefeated" based on football - won this year's Oscar for best documentary feature.

Previous Razzie winners include George Bush and Donald Rumsfeld for the 2004 Michael Moore documentary 'Fahrenheit 9/11' and Donald Trump for a small role as himself in the 1990 Bo Derek farce 'Ghosts Can't Do It.'

Last year's worst actress was the quartet of Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon for 'Sex and the City 2.'
