‘Twilight Breaking Dawn’ wins big with Razzies, Worst picture, Worst Director, Worst actress

“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn , Part 2” was picked as last year’s worst picture Saturday by the Razzies, an Academy Awards spoof that hands out prizes for Hollywood’s lousiest movies on the eve of the Oscars.

Twilight Breaking Dawn part 2 posterThe finale to the blockbuster supernatural romance dominated the Razzies with seven awards, including worst actress for Kristen Stewart, supporting actor for Taylor Lautner, director for Bill Condon and worst screen couple for Lautner and child co-star Mackenzie Foy.

Adam Sandler was named worst actor for the raunchy comedy “That’s My Boy,” his second-straight win after 2011’s “Jack and Jill,” which swept all 10 Razzie categories a year ago. Pop singer Rihanna won worst supporting actress for the action dud “Battleship.”

“Twilight” movies had been well represented in Razzie nominations over the years but had not won any key awards there.

“I have a pet theory, which is that the box office on `Twilight’ films is very impressive, but my theory is that instead of 40 million individual girls going to see it, it’s 8 million girls going to see it five times each. People who love those movies just adore them,” said Razzies founder John Wilson. “I believe the attitude of people who really love `Twilight’ movies toward this subject is very similar to the pomposity with which the Academy Awards addresses the whole rest of the world. Our whole existence is all about making fun of pompous, so `Twilight’ really is right up our alley.”

The “Twilight” finale also won for worst screen ensemble and worst remake, rip-off or sequel. For worst picture, it beat out “Battleship,” `’That’s My Boy,” the family flick “The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure” and Eddie Murphy’s comedy flop “A Thousand Words.”
