LOS ANGELES, March 5 (UPI) -- Jenny McCarthy's "Dirty Love" led the dubious pack, taking four 2006 Razzie Awards for worst picture, worst actress, worst screenplay and worst director.

During Saturday's Razzie ceremony at Hollywood's Ivar Theatre, "Dirty Love" was described as "the bastard child that might have resulted had 'Bolero' writer/director John Derek and 'Freddy Got Fingered' writer/director Tom Green spent a winter together tending sheep on 'Brokeback Mountain.'"

"Saturday Night Live" alum Rob Schneider won the Razzie for worst actor for his role as "Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo," while "Star Wars" Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith's" Hayden Christensen and "House of Wax's" Paris Hilton took the dis-honors for worst supporting actor and actress.

Will Ferrell and Nicole Kidman were named worst screen couple for "Bewitched" and the Razzie for the worst remake or sequel went to "Son of the Mask."

In a new category this year, Tom Cruise and his pregnant fiancee, Katie Holmes, took the Razzie for being "the most tiresome tabloid target" -- beating nominees Ashlee and Jessica Simpson, Nick Lachey, Britney Spears and Paris Hilton.

The Razzies are awarded based on ballots cast by about 750 film professionals, journalists and fans in 16 countries.
