HALLE BERRY WAS NAMED WORST ACTRESS OF 2004 by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation for her performance in "Catwoman" and she showed up to accept her "Razzie" carrying the Oscar she won in 2002 for "Monster's Ball."
"They can't take this away from me, it's got my name on it!" she quipped. A raucous crowd cheered her on as she gave a stirring recreation of her Academy Award acceptance speech, including tears.
She thanked everyone involved in "Catwoman," a film she said took her from the top of her profession to the bottom.
"I want to thank Warner Brothers for casting me in this piece of shit," she said as she dragged her agent on stage and warned him "next time read the script first."
This attitude marked a distinct change from last August when Berry was obviously in more need of a paycheck than she is today:
"I think I'm really hoping to do another 'Catwoman,'" Berry told reporters Thursday ahead of the film's German premiere.
Berry, who slinks through the movie in midriff-baring black leather, pointed to the satisfaction that comes from a good whip-crack.
"Everybody just wanted to crack that whip," she said. "When you get your first crack, you just want to keep on cracking."" -- AP
