The wait is almost over.
Lifetime has announced a premiere date for its highly-anticipated original movie Liz & Dick, the Elizabeth Taylor biopic starring Lindsay Lohan as the legendary actress. The movie will premiere on Lifetime on Sunday, Nov. 25 at 9/8c.
Lindsay Lohan and Eddie Murphy took top honors at this weekend's 28th annual Golden Raspberry Awards, also affectionately known as the Razzie awards, held at Magicopolis in Santa Monica. Both Lohan and Murphy broke a Razzie record by scoring multiple gold spray-painted trophies; Lindsay actually tied with herself to win the Worst Actress category for her portrayal as twins Aubrey and Dakota in I Know Who Killed Me. Lohans movie also took the awards for Worst Picture, Worst Screen Couple (Aubrey and Dakota), Worst Director, Worst Screenplay and Worst Excuse for a Horror Movie. It was Murphys work in Norbit that netted him three Razzies, including Worst Actor, Worst Supporting Actress (for Murphys turn as Rasputia) and Worst Supporting Actor (for his portrayal of Mr. Wong). In fact, the only other movie to snag a Razzie was Daddy Day Camp, starring Cuba Gooding, Jr., in the Worst Prequel or Sequel category. Presented by Razzie founder John Wilson and hi...

"We decided that each of his characters [in Norbit] was so offensive that he deserved individual nominations." So says John Wilson, founder of the Razzie Awards recognizing the worst in cinema. Also receiving more than one "acknowledgment" for the same flick was Lindsay Lohan, cited twice for her dual roles in I Know Who Killed Me (which earned nine total Razzie noms, more than any other dud of '07). Besides Norbit and IKWKM, the contenders for worst movie of the year are Bratz, Daddy Day Camp and I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry. Personally, I would've included Rob Zombie's incomprehensible Halloween retread on this list, but I'm sure there were even lamer flicks. Suggestions?The, ahem, winners will be announced the day before the Oscars. — Ben Katner

Cowabunga, dude! The Simpsons Movie didn't just open big, it opened Homer's-belly big! With a haul of $71.9 million, it was not only the No. 1 flick of the week, it was also the fifth biggest debut of the year. Rounding out the top five are I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry, with a $19.1 million take; Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, adding $17.1 million to its kitty; Hairspray, catching another $15.6 million in its Miss Baltimore Crab nets; and the new Catherine Zeta-Jones romcom No Reservations, with a paltry $11.8 million. Of course, even Zeets' numbers looked pretty sweet compared to those of our beleaguered LiLo: Her new (last?) pic, I Know Who Killed Me, generated only $3.4 million in ticket sales. See ya soon in The Surreal Life house, honey.
