Razzies Twilight Breaking Dawn Kristen Stewart Robert Pattinson Movies Entertainment News 23079827

The much-derided "Twilight" franchise has racked up an impressive 21 Razzie nominations for its four previous films, but despite the frequent ridicule of non-"Twihards" -- and two Worst Picture bids -- the supernatural romance has won only one Razzie Award to date: Worst Supporting Actor in 2010 for Jackson Rathbone, who won jointly for "Twilight: Eclipse" and that year's Worst Picture, "The Last Airbender."

Will that change this year? On November 16, the blockbuster series came to an end with "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2," so this will be last opportunity for Razzie voters to express their distaste for Bella (Kristen Stewart), Edward (Robert Pattinson), and company.

The film scored 47% on Rotten Tomatoes and 52 out of 100 on MetaCritic -- hardly a critics' darling, but far from the universal pans of recent Worst Pictures like "Jack and Jill," "Last Airbender," and "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." Is "Breaking Dawn, Part 2" bad enough to earn cinema's biggest dishonor?

It may have competition from last year's winner. Adam Sandler notoriously swept the last Razzies: "Jack and Jill" won all 10 categories, seven of which went to Sandler himself. This year, he stars in "That's My Boy," in which he plays an irresponsible man who fathered a child when he was 13 and later returns to disrupt his grown son's wedding.

Another multiple-winner, Eddie Murphy, who won three of the four acting categories for his multiple roles in "Norbit," is back in the running with the comedy "A Thousand Words," in which he plays a literary agent who may only speak that many words before dying.

Other possible Razzie contenders include "John Carter," Disney's high-profile box office disappointment; the board game-based "Battleship"; Kate Hudson's romantic comedy "A Little Bit of Heaven"; and "Atlas Shrugged, Part II," the continuation of last year's failed Ayn Rand adaptation.

Will any of those films sweep the Razzies the way "Jack and Jill" did last year, or will voters choose to spread the wealth?
