While Tinseltown is getting ready for Thursday’s Oscars to honor the best of 2012, the Razzies did their duty on Tuesday by honoring the worst of 2012. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 lead the pack with the most nominations, with stars Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart both getting nominations. Both actors will also have to go up against Tyler Perry in the worst actor and actress categories.
Breaking Dawn - Part 2 will have strong competition in the worst picture category. The Oogieloves in Big Balloon Adventure, Battleship, That’s My Boy and A Thousand Words will compete for the top prize.
That’s My Boy could earn Adam Sandler another big night at the Razzies. Last year, his Jack and Jill won all 10 awards. However, since Sandler didn’t do any cross-dressing in That’s My Boy, the film was not nominated in the worst actress category. In addition to worst picture, it was nominated for worst actor (Sandler), supporting actor (Vanilla Ice), worst screen ensemble, worst screenplay and worst screen couple (Sandler, Andy Samberg, Leighton Meester, or Susan Sarandon).
Breaking Dawn - Part 2 was nominated in every category, with Taylor Lautner and Ashley Greene getting nods for worst supporting actor and actress. It was also nominated for worst remake, rip-off or sequel.
Stewart was recognized for her work in both Breaking Dawn and Snow White and the Huntsman.
Perry earned nominations for worst actor (Alex Cross/Good Deeds) and actress (Madea’s Witness Protection). He was also nominated for worst director for Good Deeds and Witness Protection.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 33rd annual Razzies will be held on Feb. 23, the day before the Oscars. You can watch the nominations announcement below:
