Actors Lindsay Lohan and Eddie Murphy led nominations for the "Golden Raspberry" awards, singling out Hollywood's worst movie performances from the past year.



The organisation which runs the annual, light-hearted Oscars spoof, nominated Lohan for a "Razzie," as the award is affectionately called, for her starring role in

I Know Who killed Me

, a horror film in which she plays psychically connected twins.



The critic-panned flick also received Razzie nominations as 2007's worst picture, screenplay, director and worst screen couple -- for Lohan's turn appearing opposite herself in the film.



Lohan, 21, made her name appearing in such popular movies as

The Last Show

,

Mean

Girls

and

Freaky

Friday

, but has had a dry spell coinciding with her recent appearance in the tabloids and at a spate of exclusive detoxification centres.



Meanwhile, Eddie Murphy received a record five Razzie nods in one year for his politically incorrect

Norbit

, about a nerd who meets the love of his life, but who inconveniently happens to be married to a grossly obese woman, also played by Murphy.



The veteran funnyman was dishonored with nominations for worst actor, supporting actor, actress, worst on-screen couple, and worst screenplay.



Murphy had received an Oscar nomination last year for his supporting role in

Dreamgirls

, but some observers said his hopes of winning the award were torpedoed by his association with the

Norbit

project.
