Halle Berry - Holla!

Last week, just before the Academy Awards, the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation gave out the Razzies for the worst films and performances of 2004. In this parallel universe of mediocrity, Catwoman was the runaway winner with four Razzies.

Amazingly, Halle Berry came to the event to accept her award for the title role in Catwoman. But it gets even better. According to this account:
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 re-creation 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 (expletive deleted)," she said as she dragged her agent on stage and warned him "next time read the script first."

Indeed. Brava Halle!
