Jenny McCarthy brings home the berry

Nursing an Oscars hangover and licking our wounds from choking hard on our predictions (Crash? March of the Freaking Penguins?) we can at least take comfort and solace that a home-town girl made good this awards season:

Jenny McCarthy won a bunch of Razzies.

For 26 years they’ve been handing out the Golden Raspberry awards for the worst in film. This year Chicago native Jenny McCarthy made a movie that landed four of them: worst movie (Dirty Love), worst director (John Asher), worst actress (McCarthy herself), and worst screenplay (McCarthy again).

Congrats, Jenny. Your virtuoso scene involving slipping and sliding in a supermarket aisle in your own menstrual blood was inspired. Aristocrats-esque, even. You do us proud.
