"Showgirls" may be the worst movie in the history of an award that honors the worst movies.

The striptease drama on Sunday took a record seven Golden Raspberry awards, including worst picture, worst actress (Elizabeth Berkley), worst screenplay (Joe Eszterhas) and worst director (Paul Verhoeven). Berkley was also selected as 1995's worst new star.Rounding out the so-called Razzies for "Showgirls," was worst original song, "Walk Into the Wind," and worst screen couple, awarded for any combination of two people in the film.

The record was held by Pia Zadora's "The Lonely Lady," which won six Razzies in 1984.

"Four Rooms," "Jury Duty," "The Scarlet Letter" and "Waterworld" each won one Razzie apiece.

Pauly Shore, a previous Razzie winner, was named worst actor for "Jury Duty." "The Scarlet Letter" was dishonored as the worst remake or sequel.

The 16th annual Razzies were determined by 400 film professionals, journalists and movie fans surveyed by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation.
