TWILIGHT: ECLIPSE And THE LAST AIRBENDER Earn 9 Razzie Noms!
It’s award season in Hollywood and you know what that means! The Razzies are just around the corner! Like the Academy Awards, the Razzies acknowledge films from the past year. Unlike the Academy Awards, the Razzies hand out their awards for the worst films of the year – and truthfully? I find the Razzies to be more entertaining than the Oscars.
Leading the pack for worst films this year are The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and The Last Airbender, with both films scoring a huge number of 9 nominations! Both films have been nominated for worst picture. sorry Twi-hards!
Twilight stars Kristen Stewart landed a worst actress nom for her role as Bella Swan, and her vampire boyfriend Edward (Robert Pattinson) and werewolf “friend” Jacob (Taylor Lautner) are nominated for worst actor. I feel a revolt brewing from the Team Jacob and Team Edward camps!
The Last Airbender was adapted from an animated TV series about people who can control the four natural elements. Direcotor M. Nigh Shyamalan is nominated for worst director and worst screenplay.
In addition to these Twilight and Airbender; the Jennifer Aniston comedy The Bounty Hunter, and Sex and the City 2 have also been nominated for worst picture. Not to be left out, Cher (Burlesque), Liza Minnelli (Sex and the City 2) and Barbara Streisand (Little Fockers), have all been nominated as worst supporting actress.
The Razzies nominations were announced the day before the Oscars nods came out, and winners are chosen by the Razzie organizations’ 600 voters. The winners will be announced the night before the Oscars on February 26th.
