 The nominations for the 33rd Annual Razzie Awards are in!

Topping the list is The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, impressively attracting more nominations than there are categories. It received a nomination in each category and two nominations in the worst screen couple category, one for Bella and Edward, once for Jacob and Renesmee.

Kristen Stewart also managed to double up with two individual nominations in the Worst Actress category, scoring one nomination for her reprisal of Bella in Twilight and one for her role in Snow White and the Huntsman. Stewart was not the only one to be nominated for more than one movie – Tyler Perry, Nicholas Cage and Jessica Biel and Brooklyn Decker shared the dubious honour. Notably, Perry managed to be nominated for both Worst Actor and Worst Actress, the latter for his role in drag in Madea’s Witness Protection, and the former for Alex Cross and Good Deeds. Perry was also nominated in the Worst Director category for two separate films – Good Deeds and Madea’s Witness Protection.

The second most nominated film was Adam Sandler’s That’s My Boy, which received nine nominations, followed by Battleship with seven. Sandler is a Razzies regular, managing last year to scoop the pool by winning all ten categories for Jack and Jill.


The Golden Raspberry Awards will be handed out on February 23, the day before the Oscars.
