The Razzies confounded our experts, editors and users. "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2," which our odds forecast to take only two awards, instead swept with seven wins out of 10 races, including Worst Picture, Worst Director (Bill Condon), and Worst Actress (Kristen Stewart, awarded jointly for "Twilight" and "Snow White and the Huntsman"). (See a complete list of winners here.)
As the oft-shirtless werewolf Jacob, Taylor Lautner won a pair of awards: Worst Supporting Actor, beating frontrunner Vanilla Ice ("That's My Boy"), and Worst Screen Couple, shared with his 12-year-old love interest Mackenzie Foy.
Robert Pattinson didn't walk away from the Razzies completely unscathed. Though he did not win any of his seven individual nominations for playing sullen vampire Edward Cullen throughout the five "Twilight" films, he was recognized as part of "Breaking Dawn, Part 2's" winning Worst Ensemble.
Rounding out "Twilight's" haul was a win for Worst Remake, Ripoff, or Sequel. The film's dominance is especially surprising given its relatively respectable reviews; with a Metacritic score of 52, it is the best reviewed film to win Worst Picture since Metacritic started tracking reviews.
"That's My Boy," which was predicted to win six including Worst Picture, only claimed a pair of prizes. Adam Sandler won Worst Actor for the second year in a row (last year he swept the Razzies for "Jack and Jill"), and David Caspe was singled out for his screenplay.
Only one other film was cited at the Razzies. "Battleship," the sci-fi actioner based on the board game, won Worst Supporting Actress for Rihanna. She's not the first recording artist recognized for an affront to acting. She joins a list of multiplatinum Razzie winners that includes Madonna, Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, and the Spice Girls.
