‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Part 2’ leads Razzies with 11 nominations

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2” leads all films at the 33rd Annual Razzie Awards with 11 nominations. That brings the “Twilight” franchise to a grand total of 32 nods over the course of its five films, including three consecutive bids for Worst Picture.

But the series has only won one award to date: Worst Supporting Actor in 2010 for Jackson Rathbone, who won jointly for “Twilight: Eclipse” and “The Last Airbender.” Will Razzie voters send the teen romance out on top – or on bottom, as it were?

“Breaking Dawn, Part 2” is nominated in all 10 Razzie categories, including Worst Picture, Actor (Robert Pattinson), Actress (Kristen Stewart), Director (Bill Condon), and Ensemble.

Following with eight nominations is last year’s Razzie target of choice: Adam Sandler. His “Jack and Jill” swept all categories in 2011, and this year his latest comedy, “That’s My Boy,” is nominated for Worst Picture, Actor (Sandler), Supporting Actor (Nick Swardson and Vanilla Ice), Director, Screenplay, Ensemble, and Screen Couple.

Battleship” is up for seven prizes. The board-game inspired sci-fi actioner contends for Worst Picture, Supporting Actress (Brooklyn Decker and Rihanna), Supporting Actor (Liam Neeson), Director, Screenplay, and Ensemble.

Tyler Perry, who up until now had been spared Razzie’s wrath, received multiple nominations for multiple films: Worst Actor (“Alex Cross” and “Good Deeds”); Worst Actress (“Madea’s Witness Protection“); Worst Director (“Deeds” and “Witness Protection”); and Worst Ensemble, Screenplay, and Screen Couple (“Witness Protection”).

By comparison, Razzie favorite Eddie Murphy got off easy. The erstwhile “Norbit” star’s panned comedy “A Thousand Words” was nominated for just three: Worst Picture, Actor (Murphy), and Screenplay. Rounding out the Worst Picture race is the children’s film “Oogieloves in Big Balloon Adventure.”
