All the Mariska Hargitays in the world couldn't save the love guru last night.
The Mike Myers box-office flop about fame-seeking, self-helper Guru Pitka picked up three Golden Raspberry Awards at the annual ceremony that honors the year's worst in films.
Leading the evening with seven nominations, the movie was honored as Worst Picture and WorstvScreenplay, along with a Worst Actor award for Myers in the title role.
Nottie to be outdone, Paris Hilton also received three Razzies for her outstanding contribution to films in 2008.
Much like Oscar nominee Kate Winslet at the Golden Globes, the hotel heiress swept the acting categories, being named Worst Actress for The Hottie and the Nottie and Worst Supporting Actress for Repo! The Genetic Opera.
Hilton was also gonged for Worst Screen Couple with her Hottie costars, Christine Lakin and Joel David Moore.
Other best of the worst awards went to Pierce Brosnan for his supporting role in Mamma Mia!; director Uwe Boll for three (count 'em three) flops, In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, 1968: Tunnel Rats and Postal; and Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull for being the Worst Prequel, Remake, Ripoff or Sequel in 2008.
