um…

I don’t quite know what to make of this Reuters article. It reads like something The Onion would post, but isn’t labeled as parody or fake news. In part:

[Halle] Berry was named worst actress of 2004 by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation for her performance in “Catwoman” and she showed up to accept her “Razzie” carrying the Oscar she won in 2002 for “Monster’s Ball.”

“They can’t take this away from me, it’s got my name on it!” she quipped. A raucous crowd cheered her on as she gave a stirring recreation of her Academy Award acceptance speech, including tears.

She thanked everyone involved in “Catwoman,” a film she said took her from the top of her profession to the bottom.

“I want to thank Warner Brothers for casting me in this piece of shit,” she said as she dragged her agent on stage and warned him “next time read the script first.”

The article is also supposedly written by “Arthur Spiegelman”. Art Spiegelman is the pulitzer prize winning graphic novel writer/artist responsible for Maus, among other things.

Something doesn’t quite add up…

  1. Other news articles are reporting that she picked up her Razzie.

    My opinion of her went up greatly on reading these articles!

    “Catwoman” wasn’t that bad. Ok, so maybe I’m comparing it to “Battlefield: Earth,” which won the award for the worst movie in the last 25 years, and deservedly so. I’m not saying it’s bad, but Xenu himself couldn’t have made a worse movie.

  2. I still can’t get my head around her actually acting like that… but hey, props to her.

    I attempted watching Battlefield: Earth, but couldn’t get past the first 15 minutes. Normally I can at least get cheesy amusement out of bad movies, but that one was just plain awful.
