Ah, there's nothing like a huge, steamy mug of venon to wash down your turkey, eh?! That's what Lou Lumenick serves up on Thanksgiving Day as he doles out the New York Post's ninth annual Golden Turkey Awards to some of the worst pix of 2007. (Click Here)


The thoroughly roasted include Scarlett Johansson for "her inept work" in "The Nanny Diaries" and Brad Pitt "who stunk up empty theaters posing and mumbling his way through the title role of 'The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,' a film that was even longer than its title," he says.

Lou is at his poisonous best offing past Academy Award winners like Nicole Kidman, a multiple past Turkey Award honoree, who "was the year's highest-paid actress, reportedly receiving $17 million to play a woman pretending to be a pod person (an autobiographical role?) in 'The Invasion,' which grossed a total of $15 million in the United States," he adds.

Robin Williams gets two turkey legs, one for "License to Wed" and another for "August Rush."

Next: "MOST LIKELY TO HAVE THEIR OSCARS CONFISCATED: Halle Berry, 'Perfect Stranger,' 'Things We Lost in the Fire'; Hilary Swank, 'The Reaping'; Cuba Gooding Jr., 'Daddy Day Camp,' 'Norbit,' 'American Gangster.'"

"Daddy Day Care" is not only the worst-reviewed movie of 2007 so far, it's rated the 37th worst movie of all time by (Click here for the full list.) Ranked 76th on that list is "I Know Who Killed Me" starring Golden Turkey honoree Lindsay Lohan. Both films are certainly frontrunners to give "Norbit" a run for the Razzie as worst pic of 2007.

And Linds seems to be ahead so far to "win" the Razzie for the worst actress. The poor dear was bumped off last year when nominated for "Just My Luck" by the deserving Sharon Stone in "Basic Instinct 2."
