Tom Cruise: Worst Actor? Not!

Tom Cruise has been nominated for Worst Actor in the 26th Annual Razzie ® Award for his role as Ray Ferrier in War of the Worlds. Say what you will about Tom's offbeat religion, views on psychotherapy, his midlife crisis, or his strained matrimony with the cutie Katie Holmes (see June 29), he does not belong in the same category with Rob Schneider and the other low-brow nominees in that category. See razzies.com.

By the way, I got the War of the Worlds DVD for Christmas, and have not yet managed to pick myself out from the crowd in the scene where the Army Humvees charge up the hill. I'm pretty sure I'm in the preceding scene where the tripods are vaporizing the humans running down the hill, but the lighting was too dim to discern any details. Oh, well...
