Today’s birthday girl is actress Elizabeth Berkley.
While looking at the bio of Berkley, I was reminded that the actress won the 1995 Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress in a Motion Picture for her role in “Showgirls.” Serendipitously, I also discovered that in thirty-one years of giving out the awards, the Razzie has been awarded to a Leo actress ten times. That statistic becomes even more alarming when it’s noted that in the two years that the Worst Actress Razzie was awarded to an ensemble cast (The Spice Girls for “Spice World“; the cast of “Sex and the City 2“) each group included a Leo (Geri Halliwell and Kim Cattrall, respectively).
To put these stats into perspective, I’ve compiled a list of Razzie winners according to their zodiac signs, not including the aforementioned years when an ensemble cast won the award and including two actresses that tied for the 2002 awards (thirty awards in total):
Aries: Mariah Carey.
Taurus: Pia Zadora (two awards).
Gemini: Brooke Shields.
Cancer: Lindsay Lohan.
Leo: Madonna (five awards); Melanie Griffith; Elizabeth Berkley; Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry; Sandra Bullock.
Libra: Heather Locklear.
Scorpio: Bo Derek (three awards); Sean Young; Demi Moore (two awards); Jenny McCarthy.
Sagittarius: Britney Spears.
Capricorn: Heather Donahue.
Aquarius: Linda Blair; Paris Hilton.
Pisces: Liza Minelli; Sharon Stone (two awards).
So what does all this mean? It undoubtedly means that Leos make the worst actresses, followed by Scorpios. Virgos no doubt make the best actresses. I’d better let Virgo superstar Beyoncé know about this so that she can do us all a favor and stop making awful records while she concentrates on her promising acting career instead. My sixth sense tells me that there are many, many awards in her future . . .
