Here Come the Lizzies!

By Liz Kelly
2nd Annual Lizzies

It's that time of year again. The voice of the people -- at least you people -- was heard last July when you voted Paris Hilton the Most Over-Hyped Celebrity (and dropper of the Most Inane Comment) and, in a flash of brilliant foresight, elected Britney Spears the Most Fascinating Anticipated Celebrity Train Wreck of the Year.

Time to turn our celebrity prognostication and unerring judgment to this year's headlines. But, this year the honors will expand to dole out a few more superlatives. That's where you come in: For the next week I'll be accepting your ideas for categories for this year's Celebritology Honors (aka "The Lizzies").

Hollywood's baddest bad girl? Cutest celebrity baby? Biggest celebrity train wreck? Most-shocking break-up? Starlet worth emulating? Most shameless publicity stunt? What celebrity-perpetrated events or trends defined the past 12 months?

Send your ideas to celebritology@washingtonpost.com -- one or many -- and we'll narrow it down to five key categories when voting commences later this month.

Most Outrageous Parent of Young Hollywood:

Dina is voted in, Kathy Hilton anyone? Or where was Lynn when Brti was 16 on the cover of Rolling Stones, in underoos (thank god) or Papa Joe who well, is just mad.

Every year there is new set of young 'woods whose parents are tying to be hip just like them, lets award them for their skills!

For that matter, how about best/worst celeb parents, as in celebs who *are* parents (bio or adopted)?

Most Looney Celebrity: not a train-wreck yet, but has the potential to become one.
Matthew McConaguhey wins this one easy.

The Culkins were whacky parents, too!

Biggest and most disgusting train wreck:

While I agree with you Herndon, please don't give an award of any kind to Rosie.

She might go public to accept the award and open her mouth to speak.

Posted by: SoMD | May 31, 2007 12:07 PM | Report abuse

Probably not worthy of the five key categories, but how about "Most Likely to Become the Next Weight Watchers Spokesperson"?

Posted by: CMC | May 31, 2007 12:11 PM | Report abuse

Celebrity with whom you'd most like to spend an evening getting drunk. (Although Clooney would probably take this one in a walk.)

Hollywood Father of the Year:

There are many potential nominees, but I'm gonna have to go with Michael Lohan.

How about the next celebrity to take a life

Shameless publicity stunt has to be: Dustin (screech from Saved by The Bell)! Did you see the stunt he pulled on Celebrity Fit Club?


And for the record Herndon Rosie has a brain and knows what she's talking about most of the time...so she shouldn't be in any catagory with these bimbo celebs. Tell Elizabeth Hasselback to get some concrete arguments and then we can pull Rosie back into this...

She does have a big mouth though...lol

But it won't pay off for a while: Celebrity babies most likely to be dating in 15 years. Kingston and Violet? Suri and Kate Hudson's kid Ryder?

Most Visits to Promises Rehab in Malibu
(with or without an Over/Under on staying 30 days)

Most Adopted Children from third world nations

It's coming in on election time again and you know celebs cant help but think their opinion is worth more than the rest of us - so I'd say 'most bizarre political endorsement' - with a good vision of the likely fallout being the tiebreaker.

and how about 'worst career move' by a celeb... (not something like Gibson being pulled over DUI screaming anti-semetic remarks, more like Brit and her adventures in shearing herself or Jeremy Irons in Eragon).

Celebrity who attracts most misogynistic criticism (see some examples above)

Most intelligent celebrity?

Snootiest celebrity?

Celebrity most deserving of a Presidential pardon?

Celebrity most DESERVING of being in jail?

Celebrity most likely to be the subject of a doctoral dissertation?

Celebrity most likely to be writing erotica novels under a pen name?

AZ-an addendum to your Most Likely to Get Jail Time:

Least likely to actually serve jail time

Posted by: Liesje | May 31, 2007 3:40 PM | Report abuse

Idea: How about putting the following people in a big boat with a faulty GPS system and send them out to sea:
Lindsay Lohan, the Olson twins, Britney Spears, Madonna, Rosie O'Donnell, the Culkin family, Michael Jackson, Jessica Simpson, that skinny Ritchie chick, Joan Rivers, Donald Trump, anybody who has appeared on American Idol, and anybody who has been on Survivor.
I'm really sick and tired of seeing these names in the media.

Most overexposed celebrity couple: Eva Longoria and that basketball guy

Couple suffering most from TMI (too much information) syndrome: Eva Longoria and that basketball guy

Love Best Impersonation of a Skeleton and Most Overseas Adoptions, but there are far too many contestants for the former and as for the latter, I don't want Angelina Jolie to be rewarded for her neuroses.

Couple Most Likely to Divorce in 60 Days or Less ... that bony hairy tattooed singer with the bad teeth, Amy something or other?

The Special Johnny Depp Award for celebrity man who looks like he might actually dress himself and still look like somebody you'd sit next to on the train.

Hmmm...how about a category like the biggest who? in hollywood -- the unknown person that for some reason has neither talent nor skills, but yet the tabloids report on all of their activities (Kimberly Stewart comes to mind).

I've got a dizzy lizzy for you! Let's
focus on Lie Low Oxy Junkie, Lindy Lohan,
who has proved she's a snoozing lulu of
notoriety, insobriety and totally "out
to lunch" on a regular, non-stop goo-goo!

Best celebrity addiction of 2007:

Good, old fashioned booze, baby. After years of messing around with synthetic concoctions, the celebs have returned to an old classic.

I love the trash too, but how about:
Best anticipated celeb recovery/turnaround?
I want to see some of the sick girls out there get better. Too many choices for this one.

How about Dumbest Audience Demographic with Too Much Time on Their Hands and a Craving to Live Vicariously by Obsessing About Meaningless Overhyped Talentless Fakes?

Posted by: DFC | June 4, 2007 12:13 PM | Report abuse

Most courageous and says what she thinks without apology: Rosie O'Donnell. God love her!

All around seemingly the nicest and least likely to let fame lead to an exploding ego: Hillary Swank who has had two of the best roles for a woman on film in recent years and two Academy Awards to show for it!

Most impressive use of her celebrity: Angelina Jolie. Who would have guessed she would embrace the role of humanitarian with such zeal and so successfully?

Celebrity (washed up TV star or current TV personality) most likely to release an album of "original music" produced by will.i.am, kanye west, timberland or some other overhyped NY DJ
