Razzies Nominations Announced: Twilight, Katherine Heigl, and Adam Sandler Make List of Year’s Worst Films
Brace yourselves, Twihards!
The Razzie awards — which spoof the Hollywood awards season by picking out the worst films and acting performances of the year — have announced their nominations from 2012's slate of films, and let's just say that Twilight fans may want to sit down to hear this news.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 had the most nominations of any film this year with a total of 11. That includes a nom for Worst Picture of the Year, along with Worst Acting noms for Kristen Stewart, Rob Pattinson, and Taylor Lautner. Harsh!
The movie also became the first film ever to be nominated twice in the Worst Screen Couple category, with Jacob and Renesmee joining Bella and Edward as the two singled out couples.
Also collecting plenty of Razzie nods was Adam Sandler, whose box office bomb That's My Boy racked up eight nominations, including Worst Picture and Worst Actor. Adam's co-star Leighton Meester was also mentioned as one of the bad actors in the film.
Katherine Heigl was nominated for Worst Actress for her film One For the Money, which we're guessing roughly "one" person saw, while the Jersey Shore cast earned a nom as a group for appearing in The Three Stooges. And former American Idol judge Jennifer Lopez was singled out for What to Expect When You're Expecting.
The "winners" will be announced on Saturday, February 23, the day before the Oscar ceremony. This is one awards show where no one will say, "It's an honor just to be nominated."
