LOS ANGELES - Mike Myers really did lose his mojo in 2008.

LOS ANGELES - Mike Myers really did lose his mojo in 2008.

Myers and his comedy The Love Guru were named worst actor, worst picture and worst screenplay of 2008 at the Raspberry Awards on Saturday, a day before the world's top film honors, the Oscars, were given out in Hollywood.

Myers and the movie won gold spray-painted Raspberries ("Razzies") at the awards created in 1980 to spoof the Academy Awards.

The Love Guru flopped with about R400 million in global ticket sales, a fraction of the success of his three Austin Powers spoofs.

Socialite Paris Hilton was the other big "Razzie" award-winner. She won three trophies: worst actress and worst screen couple for her low-budget romantic comedy The Hottie & The Nottie and worst supporting actress for her role in the horror fantasy Repo! The Genetic Opera. - Reuters
