"The Bodyguard" scored seven nominations - including one for Kevin Costner's haircut - to lead all other contenders for the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation's best-of-the-worst movie awards, better known as the Razzies.

Winners will be announced March 28, the day before the Academy Awards.But "Christopher Columbus: The Discovery" (referred to in the Razzie news release as "Christopher Columbus: The Disco Version") was close behind with six nominations, followed by "Newsies" and "Shining Through" with five apiece.

All four films were nominated for worst picture, as was "Final Analysis."

Sylvester Stallone made his ninth consecutive appearance on the worst-actor list for "Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot!" But three other actors and three actresses were each cited for two movies.

Michael Douglas was nominated for "Basic Instinct" and "Shining Through," Jack Nicholson for "Hoffa" and "Man Trouble," and Tom Selleck for "Folks" and "Mr. Baseball." Kevin Costner rounded out the field for "The Bodyguard."

In the worst actress category, Kim Basinger was nominated for "Cool World" and "Final Analysis," Lorraine Bracco for "Medicine Man" and "Traces of Red," and Melanie Griffith for "Shining Through" and "A Stranger Among Us." Rounding out the category were Whitney Houston for "The Bodyguard" and Sean Young for "Love Crimes."

Perhaps the most interesting category was Worst New Star, which included nominations for "Christopher Columbus: The Discovery" star George Corraface, Kevin Costner's haircut in "The Bodyguard," Whitney Houston, Pauly Shore in "Encino Man" and Sharon Stone's exposed anatomy in "Basic Instinct."

Worst supporting actor nominees: Alan Alda, "Whispers in the Dark"; Marlon Brando, "Christopher Columbus: The Discovery"; Danny DeVito, "Batman Returns" and "Hoffa"; Robert Duvall, "Newsies"; Tom Selleck, "Christopher Columbus: The Discovery."

Worst supporting actress: Ann-Margret, "Newsies"; Estelle Getty, "Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot!"; Tracy Pollan, "A Stranger Among Us"; Jeanne Tripplehorn, "Basic Instinct"; and Sean Young, "Once Upon a Crime."

The Razzies are voted on by 380-plus members of the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation, a self-selected collection of film professionals, journalists and fans. Winners will be announced March 28, the day before the Academy Awards.
