Yeah, the Oscars might’ve been the big story, but there was also another awards ceremony this weekend: the Razzies. So which big fantasy epic took the top “prize” as worst film of the year?
Not too surprisingly, frequent whipping boy Twilight took home the crown with its final installment, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2. Congrats to the Worst Picture winner. Sure, it’s easy to take shots at the Twilight blockbusters, but the series was a shoo-in this year, considering that it’s the final entry in the long-running franchise.
The film beat out Battleship for the top spot, so it's nice to see Taylor Kitsch at least catch a break on this one.
Genre films actually cleaned house at the Razzies this year, mostly led by Twilight. Kristen Stewart was named Worst Actress for her role in Snow White and the Huntsman and Breaking Dawn Part 2; Rihanna in Battleship was named Worst Supporting Actress; Taylor Lautner in Breaking Dawn Part 2 was named Worst Supporting Actor; Breaking Dawn Part 2 was named Worst Screen Ensemble; Bill Condon for Breaking Dawn Part 2 as Worst Director; Breaking Dawn Part 2 as Worst Remake, Rip-Off, or Sequel; and MacKenzie Foy and Taylor Lautner in Breaking Dawn Part 2 as Worst Screen Couple.
What do you think of the picks? Would you have chosen differently?
