Murphy and Lohan 'worst actors'
Eddie Murphy and Lindsay Lohan
Both Norbit and I Know Who Killed Me received poor reviews in the US
Eddie Murphy and Lindsay Lohan gave the poorest acting performances in Hollywood films in 2007, according to a poll of nearly four million people.

Murphy's appearance in Norbit - in which he played three characters including an obese woman - was panned in the online survey by AOL Moviefone.

His film was also considered to be the biggest waste of the price of a ticket.

Lohan was judged to be the worst actress of 2007 for trying to shake off a murderer in I Know Who Killed Me.

Hottest hunk

In the categories honouring the top talent of the past 12 months, Matt Damon was recognised for his acting in The Bourne Ultimatum and Ocean's Thirteen.

The Bourne film was also named the best sequel of 2007.

Shia LeBeouf also was named best newcomer, and also won best screen duo along with Megan Fox for Transformers.

Fox was voted sexiest babe, with Johnny Depp's performance in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End earned him the title of hottest hunk.

Ralph Fiennes and Angelina Jolie were named best male and female villains for their roles in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Beowulf.

War film 300 was judged to be most worthy of the price of a ticket, while Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of Crystal Skull topped the category for the 2008 movie about which voters were most excited.

The survey, which attracted more than 3.8 million votes, offered users a choice of five nominees in each category.
