The Razzies have a proud history of honoring the worst in cinema. Former Worst Picture winners include disastrous classics “The Last Airbender” (2010), “Battlefield Earth” (2000), and “Showgirls” (1995).
This year, there are a number of strong contenders for this title. Two years ago, “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” won Worst Picture and the latest installlment — “Transformers Dark of the Moon” — is a threat to win again. Debuting in November, “Breaking Dawn Part 1,” the fourth entry in the “Twilight” saga is another potential nominee. These films will surely give two Adam Sandler productions a run for their money — Sandler co-wrote “Bucky Larson,” a flop comedy about an aspiring porn star, and will soon star as both brother and sister in “Jack and Jill.”
Awards are also bestowed for Worst Director, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Screenplay, and Remake, Rip-off or Sequel. Sandler, Natalie Portman (“No Strings Attached,” “Thor,” “Your Highness“) and Taylor Lautner (“Abduction,” “Breaking Dawn”) are all potential contenders for 2011’s major dishonors.
