Taking Names: Oscar after-parties celebrate Hollywood
Actress Sean Young arrested at Oscars Governor’s Ball
Actress Sean Young was arrested after a scuffle with a security guard at the official post-Oscars party, police said Monday.
According to the Associated Press, Miss Young, 52, was placed under citizen’s arrest at the Governor’s Ball at 9:25 p.m. Sunday after the dispute, police Cmdr. Andrew Smith said.
“She was trying to get into the party and couldn’t get in,” he said.
Miss Young, who starred in “Blade Runner” and “Stripes,” was booked at the Hollywood police station for investigation of misdemeanor battery. She posted $20,000 bail and was released early Monday.
Miss Young tried to crash the Vanity Fair Oscar party in 2006. She entered rehabilitation for alcohol abuse in 2008 after she was removed from the Directors Guild of America awards.
Adam Sandler sets record with 11 Razzie nominations
Actor Adam Sandler set a record for cinematic stinker nominations Saturday, as organizers of the Razzie awards unveiled their 32nd annual movie shortlists of shame.
The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation nominees for worst films and performances, announced a day ahead of the Oscars, included no fewer than 11 for Mr. Sandler, more than double the previous record by Eddie Murphy in 2005.
According to Agence France-Presse, Mr. Sandler amassed the 11 Razzie nods as actor, writer and/or producer of three critically panned movies released by his Happy Madison Productions, “Jack & Jill,” “Bucky Larson” and “Just Go With It,” organizers said.
The cross-dressing comedy “Jack & Jill” leads the pack for worst picture with 12 nominations overall, including both worst actor and actress for Mr. Sandler and a third Razzie nod for Oscar winner Al Pacino, who plays himself in the movie.
Winners of the Razzies will be announced April 1.
