Tinseltown tripe feted by Razzies

TOM CRUISE and Katie Holmes are in line for Hollywood’s least wanted accolade — the Razzies.

In an Academy Awards spoof that pays heed to the worst in Hollywood, Cruise earned three nominations, as worst actor for War of the Worlds and two of the five slots in a new Razzies category for most tiresome tabloid targets.

Cruise was nominated for his anti-psychiatry rant and for his very public romance with Holmes.

“He had been a very private person up until this past year,” said Razzies founder John Wilson.

“It certainly was a bizarre turn in terms of how he handles his personal life and the access that he gave the media to himself. The endless posing on the red carpet and just smooching like they were on the couch at home.”

Four of the five worst picture nominees for the Razzies were sequels or remakes, led by Son of the Mask, which had eight nominations, including worst actor for Jamie Kennedy and supporting actor for Alan Cumming and Bob Hoskins.

Paris Hilton received two nominations, worst supporting actress for House of Wax and most tiresome tabloid target.
