While most awards shows recognize the best in film, the Razzie Awards honor the worst! Monday the 2011 Razzie Nominees were announced, with M. Night Shyamalan’s film The Last Airbender as the leading contender and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse trailing close behind.
Notable nominees for worst picture include The Last Airbender, The Bounty Hunter, which stars Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler, Sex and the City 2 and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. Eclipse stars Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson will continue their rivalry off-screen in the battle for worst actor -- and their leading lady Kristen Stewart is worst actress! Stewart is up against the ladies of Sex and the City 2, Jennifer Aniston (for her roles in The Bounty Hunter and The Switch alongside Jason Bateman) and recently troubled teen queen Miley Cyrus.
Oscar winners Liza Minnelli and Barbra Streisand are both nominated for worst supporting actress, but they shouldn’t be too offended. Last year Sandra Bullock won a Razzie for her role in the 2009 comedy All About Steve alongside Bradley Cooper. The very next day, she won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in The Blind Side.
The Razzie Awards were created in 1980 as an antidote to Hollywood’s self-congratulatory awards show season. Razzies are traditionally awarded the night before the Oscars. Bullock and Halle Berry are two of the few nominees who have good-naturedly showed up to accept their awards.
What do you think was the worst film of 2010? Chime in below!
