The Last Airbender is now, officially, the worst movie of 2010

Just before the Oscars celebrated the "best" films of 2010, the 31st Annual Golden Raspberry Awards bestowed the honor of the worst. And M. Night Shyamalan's take on a kids'-TV classic took the grand prize.

Shut out of the Oscars, The Last Airbender cleaned up at the Razzies, taking home Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst Screenplay and Worst Eye-Gouging Misuse of 3D, beating out other noteworthy contenders like Clash of the Titans, Twilight Saga: Eclipse and The Expendables.

In defending Airbender's pole position as the worst of the worst, Razzie's founder John Wilson had this to say about the film and its director:

"He managed to take a cartoon property and make it even less lifelike by making it with real actors. ... Most people who like the show, and this would include my 14-year-old son, hated the movie. It made no sense whatsoever."

Sometimes, you'd rather just have been nominated.
