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…
