The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 'Wins' 7 Razzie Awards

The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation announced the 'winners' for the 33rd Annual Razzie Awards last night. You can check out the announcement below:

This year saw yet another RAZZIE® sweep, but this one was incomplete: Although TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN PART 2 went into the 33rd Annual RAZZIE Awards race with a near-record 11 nominations (more nods than there were categories) it only managed to "win" seven spray-painted statuettes, including Worst Picture, Worst Actress (Kristen Stewart) Worst Supporting Actor (Taylor Lautner), Worst Screen Couple (Lautner and 12 year-old Mackenzie Foy) and Worst Screen Ensemble. Throw in Worst Remake/Rip-Off or Sequel and Worst Director for Bill Condon, and the fifth and final TWILIGHT film is 2012's most-RAZZed movie. But TWILIGHT S.B.D. #2 (as RAZZIE wags prefer to refer to it) still fell short of last year's unprecedented all-ten-category sweep by Adam Sandler's JACK & JILL. Sandler wasn't totally over-looked, though: The aging, schlubby comic took the Worst Actor RAZZIE for the second year in a row, and his film THAT'S MY BOY bested TWILIGHT for Worst Screenplay by a single vote. In the 10th category, Worst Supporting Actress, RAZZIE voters chose pop singer Rihanna, making her big screen debut in BATTLESHIP, by a landslide.

Results were announced in a comedic press conference, which parodied the format and attitude of Tinsel Town's other 357 award ceremonies. The proceedings were conducted in alarming proximity to where Sunday night will see that other award show unfold: The venue for this year's Golden Raspberry bash-fest was The Continental Breakfast Room of the Holiday Inn Express Hollywood Walk of Fame hotel, less than half-a-mile from the Dolby Theatre, home of the 85th Annual Giving Out of the Little Gold Naked Men.

Nominees and "winners" for 9 of this year's 10 RAZZIE categories were determined by ballots e-mailed to 657 Voting Members throughout 47 U.S. states and 19 foreign countries. For the 10th category, Worst Remake/Rip-Off or Sequel, both nominees and "winners" were decided by conducting a poll at RottenTomatoes.com, in which nearly 70,000 votes were cast.

The RAZZIES® were created in 1980 as a logical antidote to Tinsel Town's annual glut of self- congratulatory awards by John Wilson, author of THE OFFICIAL RAZZIE® MOVIE GUIDE and EVERYTHING I KNOW I LEARNED AT THE MOVIES.
