'Twilight' Leads Razzie Nominations

Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 2

Not to be missed among this award season is the annual event that precedes the Oscar nominations, The Golden Raspberry Awards aka The Razzies. Honouring the “berry worst” since 1980, The Razzies are annual gong to Hollywood’s finest as they are in the midst of handing out awards to themselves. It was an especially good year for berry picking, as the Academy noted that there were plenty of clunkers in 2012, including “movies based on recycled premises, re-working concepts that were already tired a decade or more ago, and which were the cinematic equivalent of re-treaded tires. Those are the films The Golden Raspberry Awards have been annually dis-honoring since 1980.” Adam Sandler, the Meryl Streep of the Razzies, is back after his unprecedented 10-category sweep last year for Jack & Jill. The perennial nominee is in the running for That’s My Boy! However, Sandler might not wear the dunce cap this year, since everyone’s least favourite series, Twilight, scored a whopping 11 nominations across 10 categories. It’s a franchise record. Twi-hards can also be on Team Edward and Team Jacob since Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are not going head to head, but are nominated as Worst Actor and Worst Supporting Actor, respectively. Kristin Stewart vies for worst actress and she’ll compete with Katherine Heigl and Barbra Streisand. Also among the “honourees” are Liam Neeson and singer turned “actress” Rihanna. Lindsay Lohan was robbed!
