“Twilight,” “Last Airbender” (dis)honored with most RAZZIE nominations
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: “Eclipse,” the third installment in “The Twilight Saga,” tied M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Last Airbender” for the most Razzie nominations, which were announced this morning.
The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation (dis)honored “Twilight” and “Airbender” with nine nominations apiece, including Worst Picture of 2010, for the 31st Annual RAZZIE Awards.
From the release:
In addition to Worst Director and Worst Picture, the [“Last Airbender”] is up for Worst Remake, Worst Screenplay, Worst Screen Couple/Ensemble (the entire cast) and a brand-new RAZZIE® category for 2010, Worst Eye-Gouging Mis-Use of 3-D.
Neck-and-neck with “Airbender” in the RAZZIE race (while taking a decidedly bigger bite it at the box office) is last year’s 4th biggest money-maker, “Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” also with nine shots at taking home spray-painted gold. All three of the principal characters of “Eclipse” are individually nominated for their acting, and the entire cast is also up for Worst Screen Ensemble.
Rounding out the Worst Picture list are the aptly titled “Twilight” parody “Vampires Suck,” the bling-obsessed superslick chick flick “Sex & The City 2,” and the decidedly un-romantic rom-com/revenge fantasy “The Bounty Hunter.”
Other notable nominees include a trio of long established divas, Cher, Liza Minnelli and Barbra Streisand all vying to be named Worst Supporting Actress, ’tween bong enthusiast Miley Cyrus nominated for Worst Actress, and Jack Black, Gerard Butler and Ashton Kutcher up against Twilight’s Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson for Worst Actor.
The RAZZIE “winners” will be announced in ceremonies at Hollywood’s Barnsdall Gallery Theatre at 7:30 p.m. PST on Saturday, Feb. 26 – the now night before the Oscars.
