Drama at the Razzies!

"Basic Instinct 2," the bomb sequel to 1992's "Basic Instinct," defeated tough competition on Saturday night to win the Razzie Award as the worst picture of 2006. The competitors included Cage's critically slammed remake of "The Wicker Man," in which the once Oscar-winning actor wears a bear suit at a moment of high drama

Despite "Instinct 2's" overwhelming showing, "Wicker Man" partisans -- including comedian and National Public Radio's "Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!" regular Adam Felber -- were upset that their film came up empty.

In a post-show interview, [Razzie founder John] Wilson acknowledged that there was some feeling within the Golden Raspberry Foundation that "Wicker Man" was "robbed."

There will be similar drama at the Oscars tonight when Rinko Kikuchi wins the Best Supporting Actress award everyone thought would go to Jennifer Hudson. Then Bjork will show up in a bear suit.
