The nominations for the 33rd annual Razzie Awards were announced late last night, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 lead the nods, with 11 in just 10 categories. Ouch. Not that harsh criticism is anything new to the Twilight community, but it still stings, right? Especially when you see the other movies nominated: They’re either big overblown vehicles for giant movie stars that flopped (Battleship, Total Recall), terrible comedies (That’s My Boy, One for the Money) or obscure movies we totally forgot about (Oogieloves, Atlas Shrugged: Part II). Breaking Dawn, on the other hand, was always meant to be a faithful “love letter” for the fans, not critics and not everyone else who’s obviously not in the target demo.
Should Eddie Murphy’s performance in A Thousand Words be in the same category as Robert Pattinson’s last appearance as Edward? Well, we’re eager to let you guys vent about this one.
Here’s the full list of nominations. The “winners” will be announced on February 23, the day before the Oscars.
The 31st Annual Razzie Award nominations are out, and there are quite a few terrible movies nominated this year. Of course, that’s the point, since the Razzies only celebrate the worst films, but there’s one film that swept every major Razzie category that our readers might disagree with, and that film is Eclipse. The third installment in The Twilight Saga garnered nominations in the Worst Picture, Worst Actor (for both Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner), Worst Actress for Kristen Stewart, Worst Supporting Actor (Jackson Rathbone), Worst On-Screen Ensemble (for the entire cast), Worst Director (David Slade), Worst Screenplay and Worst Prequel/Sequel categories. Ouch.
Some of us at TheFABLife are bigger Twilight fans than others, and while the author of this post personally didn’t care for the film that much, we actually thought it was much better than its fellow Razzie nominee, Sex And The City: 2, which was an assault on our senses and good judgment. A full list of Razzie nominees is after the jump. What do you think, was Eclipse unfairly singled out, or were giant wolves fighting Bryce Dallas Howard just that terrible?
