American actress Jenny McCarthy stole the show at the Razzies, the spoof Oscars ceremony, in Los Angeles last night, receiving three awards - worst picture, actress and screenplay - for her risqué romantic comedy Dirty Love.

Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman and Paris Hilton also won prizes at the ceremony, mocking the worst films of 2005. Cruise had been nominated as worst actor for War of the Worlds, losing out to Rob Schneider for Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo. But Cruise did win in the new category of "most tiresome tabloid target", for the public spectacle of his romance with actress Katie Holmes.

"For him to suddenly propose in front of reporters on the Eiffel Tower and jump up and down like the monkey in Curious George on Oprah Winfrey's couch, there truly is some problem there," said John Wilson, founder of the Razzies.

Hilton was named worst supporting actress for House of Wax. "I knew she would win as soon as I heard she was going to be in the movie," said Wilson.

Kidman and Will Ferrell were picked as worst screen couple for Bewitched, while Hayden Christensen was chosen as worst supporting actor for Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.
