“Twilight” Finale Tops List Of Razzie Nominations
MIAMI (CBSMiami) — “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” leads the Razzies lineup with 11 nominations, including worst picture, lead-acting slots for Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, and supporting-acting nominations for Taylor Lautner and Ashley Greene.
Other worst-picture nominees are the naval action tale “Battleship,” the family flick “The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure,” Adam Sandler’s raunchy dud “That’s My Boy” and Eddie Murphy’s comedy flop “A Thousand Words.”
A spoof of the Academy Awards, the Razzies announcement came a little more than a day before Thursday’s Oscar nominations. Winners for the 33rd annual Razzies will be announced Feb. 23, the night before the Oscar show.
“Breaking Dawn – Part 2” also had nominations for worst director for Bill Condon, plus worst sequel, screenplay and screen ensemble. It picked up two nominations for worst screen couple – for Stewart and Pattinson and for Lautner and child co-star Mackenzie Foy.
Stewart’s worst-actress nomination came for two performances in 2012, her Bella Swan of “Twilight” and the title role in “Snow White and the Huntsman.”
Sandler – whose “Jack and Jill” made Razzies history last season by winning a record 10 awards, sweeping every category – remains a Razzies favorite this time. “That’s My Boy” ran second with eight Razzie nominations, among them worst actor for Sandler and supporting actor for both Nick Swardson and Vanilla Ice.
Tyler Perry was nominated for both worst actor (“Alex Cross” and “Good Deeds”) and actress (“Madea’s Witness Protection,” in which he reprised his cross-dressing title character).
Along with Sandler, Pattinson and Perry, worst-actor contenders are Nicolas Cage for “Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance” and “Seeking Justice”; and Murphy for “A Thousand Words.”
Joining Stewart and Perry in the worst-actress lineup are Katherine Heigl for “One for the Money”; Milla Jovovich for “Resident Evil: Retribution”; and Barbra Streisand for “The Guilt Trip.”
