Worst Career Year

Howdy all!

I was just looking over the list of nominees for the Razzies (http://www.razzies.com) and I saw that Eddie Murphy was nominated as Worst Actor for three 2002 films: SHOWTIME, I SPY and THE ADVENTURES OF PLUTO NASH.

Made me start to think: has any actor had as bad a career year as Mr. Murphy had in 2002? Let's not throw out the usual "Pauly Shore / Carrot Top" cliches -- let's look at people with actual talent who just had a terrible year at the movies.

I don't think anyone can top Eddie Murphy's futility record for 2002. Others had their stinkers (Dana Carvey, Stephen Dorff), but none as powerful a punch as the Eddie Murphy Hat Trick of horrible comedies.

I expect him to be on welfare within the next 6 months.

He should be relegated to pretending to be a paraplegic war veteran begging for cash in the park...but he's getting $10 million for Shrek 2, and he's headlining Disney's big Thanksgiving release. Why the studios are still handing him over star roles in comedies...I dunno.
