Twi-hards, are you going to stand for this … again?
Nominees for the 33rd Annual Razzie Awards were announced on Monday, celebrating the worst in on-screen entertainment from 2012, and a familiar target – The Twilight Saga – took its expected beating. The final chapter of the vampire-werewolf series banked 11 nominations (in only 10 categories) to lead all movies, narrowly edging out Adam Sandler’s That’s My Boy and its 8 nominations.
Rounding out the Razzie nominations for Worst Picture include Peter Berg’s Battleship; Eddie Murphy’s comedy A Thousand Words; and Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure. How many of those did you actually see in a theater?
The Razzies strike days before the Oscar nominations. They have gone after many of the same targets year after year, putting Sandler and Nic Cage under the microscope while taking swipes at Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Murphy. I do admire them singling out Tyler Perry (in drag) in the Worst Actress category. After that, the rest of the nominations are less than inspired.
Here’s the full list of Razzie nominations. Winners will be announced Feb. 23, the day before the Oscars. Are these really the worst movies that you saw last year in theaters? Did they overly judge a fave movie of yours? Or were they too kind to a movie that you really hated? Let us know below.
