Twilight leads Razzies ‘worst film’ shortlistCulture Desk
The final instalment of the Twilight saga has dominated the shortlist for this year’s Razzies, which single out the worst movies of the last 12 months, reports BBC.
Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2, which made $814m (£507m) at the box office, has 11 nominations in 10 categories, including worst film and worst sequel.
Its stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are also listed in the ‘worst screen couple’ category.
Critically-reviled blockbuster Battleship received seven nominations.
Among them was worst supporting actress for pop star Rihanna, who made her acting debut as a US Navy Seal in the film, which was based on the classic grid-based boardgame.
Other notable nominations included actor-director Tyler Perry, who was cited for worst actor and worst actress - thanks to his cross-dressing role in Madea’s Witness Protection.
Comedian Adam Sandler won both categories last year, for playing a twin brother and sister in Jack and Jill. His latest film, bad-taste comedy That’s My Boy, picked up eight nominations in this year’s shortlist.
The Razzies committee also put forward ‘any two cast members’ from MTV reality show Jersey Shore for worst screen couple in the Three Stooges movie - based on the cult US comedy act.
