'Twilight,' 'Last Airbender' Lead 2010 Razzie Nominees

The Oscars aren’t the only awards show announcing their nominees this week. As is tradition, the Golden Raspberry Awards – or, ‘The Razzies’ – announced their nominees for the worst films and performances one day before The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences announces their nominees for the best. As usual, the results aren’t pretty, and ‘favor’ big Hollywood blockbusters over crappy smaller flicks like Joel Schumacher’s abysmal Twelve.

M. Night Shyamalan’s disastrous adaptation of the Nickelodeon series Avatar: The Last Airbender got bent itself with nine nominations, including Worst Picture, Worst Supporting Actress (Nicola Peltz), Worst Supporting Actor (Dev Patel), Worst Supporting Actor (Jackson Rathbone), Worst Eye-Gouging Misuse of 3-D (a new category), Worst Screen Couple/Ensemble, Worst Director (Shyamalan), Worst Screenplay and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel. The latest entry in the financially successful Twilight Saga would not be eclipsed by Shyamalan’s latest however, and also sucked out nine nominations for Worst Picture, Worst Actor (Taylor Lautner), Worst Actor (Robert Pattinson), Worst Actress (Kristen Stewart), Worst Supporting Actor (also Jackson Rathbone), Worst Screen Couple/Ensemble, Worst Director (David Slade), Worst Screenplay and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-Off or Sequel. 

Both films opened on the same weekend, which will doubtless live in infamy. Let’s see what’s scheduled to open on July 1st, 201l… Transformers: Dark of the Moon? Damn, maybe it is cursed.
