In the spirit of annual best and worst lists, announcements have been made for the most dazzling and the most 'razzling' flicks of 2007.
The annual Golden Tomato Awards are handed out to the highest-rated films of the year on movie review site RottenTomatoes.com:
"Ratatouille" and "Once" warmed the hearts of moviegoers and critics alike — and now, they've taken top honors in the ninth annual Golden Tomato Awards.
The Golden Tomato Awards pay tribute to the best-reviewed films of the previous year as determined by the Web site RottenTomatoes.com, which compiles reviews from print, online and broadcast film critics to measure the percentage of favorable critiques.
"Ratatouille," the animated gem about a rat with unexpected culinary skills, earned a 96 percent ranking on the site's Tomatometer. The Irish romance "Once," which won for best limited release film and best musical, scored 98 percent.
Among the nominations announced on Monday for the 28th annual Golden Raspberry awards, which celebrate the worst in filmmaking, are Adam Sandler, Lindsay Lohan and Eddie Murphy for their respective work in "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry," "I Know Who Killed Me" and "Norbit."
It's a double-whammy for Lohan and Murphy, who play multiple roles in their cinematic fiascoes and were nominated opposite themselves in the worst screen couple category.
"I Know Who Killed Me," a teen thriller in which Lohan plays psychically connected twins, "is a Lindsay Lohan 'vehicle' that proved as dangerous for its star as any car she ever ran off the road," said John Wilson, who heads the group that spoofs the Oscars by celebrating the year's worst films.
"Norbit" garnered Murphy five nods for what Wilson described as a "latex-laden, nearly laugh-free 'comedy.'"
