Raspberry Award: Berry goes to Hollywood

In den ersten 40 Minuten sei "Catwoman" noch Anlass für mancherlei Freude gewesen, danach aber sei die ganze Sache gerade noch gut genug für den Mülleimer. So rezensierte
Nev Pierce
für die BBC am 11. August 2004 den Auftritt des Oscar-Gewinnerin Halle Berry in ihrem letzten Kinofilm.

 [1] Anlässlich der Oscar-Verleihungen vom letzten Februar-Wochenende des Jahres 2005 wurde ihr als "Underdog-"Oskar der
Razzie-Award
für die mieseste Interpretation einer weiblichen Filmrolle verliehen.


Mike Cidoni von "The Associated Press"
 [2] berichtet am 27. Februar aus Los Angeles wie folgt:

Hoisting her Academy Award in one hand and newly won Razzie in the other, Halle Berry reveled in a career low point.

"Omigosh, oh my God," Berry gasped Saturday night, feigning excitement. "I never in my life thought that I would be here, winning a Razzie. It’s not like I ever aspired to be here, but thank you."

Berry was named worst actress for 2004’s action bomb "Catwoman," which also took the prize for worst film at the 25th annual Razzies, an Oscar spoof that trashes Hollywood’s worst. [...]

Berry was the first Oscar winner to be dishonored by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation, and the first to accept a Razzie in person since Tom Green did so for his part in 2001’s "Freddy Got Fingered."

Berry, who wore a simple black dress, explained why she showed up at the ceremony.

"When I was a kid, my mother told me that if you could not be a good loser, then there’s no way you could be a good winner," she said.

However, she added, "I hope to God I never see these people again!" [...]

Wilson relishes savaging perpetual winners such as Sylvester Stallone and Madonna. In the case of Berry, Wilson felt sympathy, saying "Catwoman" was simply the result of a misguided career move.

"Don’t get us wrong. She’s a very talented actress, a very beautiful woman, who just made a mistake," he said. "We’re not trashing Halle Berry as a human being. We’re only saying, we’re so sorry you chose to do this."

Wenn Fehler wirklich so "bestraft" werden müssen, dann ist es wirklich ein Zeichen von Courage, dass sich die Schauspielerin dieser Herausforderung stellt. "She feels linke revenge", schrieb Nev Pierce in seiner BBC-Rezension. Wir freuen uns schon heute auf den nächsten Film mit Halle Berry: Ihre Rache wird süss sein.
