There were worse movies to come out this year, to be sure. But, like the Oscars they were created to mock, the Razzie Awards is just a yearly bit of fluff that picks their winners (or “winners”) based on mostly meaningless criteria. So let’s just sit back and have fun with it, yeah?
Breaking Dawn – Part 2 was nominated in every single category, and in addition to Worst Picture it got awards for Worst Actress (Kristen Stewart), Worst Supporting Actor (Taylor Lautner), Worst Screen Couple (Lautner and Renesmee actor Mackenzie Foy), Worst Screen Ensemble, Worst Director (Bill Condon), and Worst Remake/Rip-Off-or Sequel. That’s quite a send-off for the franchise, Razzies.
Robert Pattinson and Ashley Greene escaped unscathed, however, as the Razzies went with That’s My Boy‘s Adam Sandler and Battleship‘s Rihanna for Worst Actor and Supporting Actress, respectively. If Adam Sandler is in a movie, they have to give a Razzie to him. It’s written in the bylaws or something. That’s My Boy also won Worst Screenplay.
I didn’t see any of this year’s nominees (thank goodness), so my own personal Razzie for the year’s worst film has to go to 1911, a Chinese historical epic starring Jackie Chan that is painfully, hilariously bad. How about you?
