Lindsay Lohan has capped a remarkable 2007 by being named the worst actress of the year.

The 21-year-old had the latest in a long line of car crashes in May, attended rehab three times and spent an hour in jail after being charged with driving under the influence and cocaine possession.

And according to 58 per cent of voters in a poll carried out by AOL's Moviefone web site, Lohan's performance in horror flop I Know Who Killed Me was the worst of the year.

Her film Georgia Rule - which made headlines after its production was delayed due to Lohan reportedly suffering from exhaustion - was named the second biggest waste of $10 (£5) spent on a movie ticket, though Eddie Murphy's Norbit grabbed the top spot in that category.

Classical epic 300 was voted the most worthy of the price of admission, securing 28 per cent of votes to narrowly defeat Transformers, though the latter's onscreen pairing of Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox were named best duo.

Fox was also voted the sexiest star of the year while Pirates Of The Caribbean star Johnny Depp was named the hottest male.

More than 3.8 million people voted in the online survey which saw Superbad named the best comedy of the year.

Knocked Up - also from producer Judd Apatow - registered 28 per cent of the vote to finish second in the funniest film category.

British actor Ralph Fiennes was named the best male villain of the year for his turn as the evil Lord Voldemort in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix while Angelina Jolie secured the female equivalent of the award for her performance as Grendel's mother in CGI actioner Beowulf.

And Matt Damon was recognised for turning in the best two performances of the year in Ocean's Thirteen and The Bourne Ultimatum, which also won best sequel.
