As Hollywood paid tribute to the year's best at last night's (25MAR01) OSCARS, sci-fi flop Battlefield Earth (2000) was hailed Tinseltown's worst film of 2000.
The JOHN TRAVOLTA movie, based on Scientology founder Lafayette Ronald Hubbard's novel, claimed the bulk of the 21st annual GOLDEN RASPBERRY FOUNDATION awards.
