From Times Wire Services

Sylvester Stallone and Bo Derek were named the worst actors of the ‘80s and William Shatner and his “Star Trek V” were the big losers of 1989 in the 10th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards.

“Mommie Dearest” was named worst film of the decade in awards ceremonies Sunday at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.

Razzies, as the awards are known, were bestowed for worst achievement in film for both the last year and past 10 years.


For 1989, Shatner was named worst actor for “Star Drek V,” as the Golden Raspberry selectors prefer to call the film. The science-fiction sequel was also named as the worst film of 1989 and Shatner as worst director of the year.

Heather Locklear, who starred with Shatner in the television series “T. J. Hooker,” was also honored with a Razzie as worst actress of 1989 for her work in “The Return of Swamp Thing.”

Brooke Shields was singled out for worst supporting actress for 1989’s “Speed Zone,” while Christopher Atkins got the Razzie as worst supporting actor for last year’s “Listen to Me.”

“Harlem Nights” took the award for worst screenplay of the year, written by Eddie Murphy. The tune “Bring Your Daughter to the Slaughter” from “A Nightmare on Elm Street 5” was chosen as the worst original song of 1989.

In the decade competition, Stallone was named as worst actor for his appearances in “Rhinestone,” “Rambo II,” “Rocky IV,” “Cobra,” “Over the Top,” “Rambo III,” “Lock Up” and “Tango and Cash.”

Bo Derek was recognized as worst actress of the ‘80s for “Tarzan the Ape Man” and “Bolero.” Pia Zadora was picked as worst new star of the decade for “Butterfly” and “The Lonely Lady.”

The winners were picked by the more than 275 members of the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation. The organization includes film makers, frequent moviegoers and movie journalists.
