Final ‘Twilight’ sweeps the 2013 Razzies with a nomination in every category
By Bryan Enk | Movie Talk – 12 hours ago

Photo: SummitWell, look at it this way, Twi-hards: It's not like a "Twilight" movie will ever feel the wrath of the Razzies ever again.

It wouldn't be Awards Season without everyone's favorite anti-awards organization, the Golden Raspberries, and this year they've somewhat predictably (and rather unfairly) targeted "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" for every single possible category.

Some film critics in the Twitter-verse have already come to the defense of the film, which is considered by many to be the best (relatively, anyway) installment in the series. It is a bit of a lazy (and unfair) stunt to pull; at this point, it's become somewhat tiresome to trash on "Twilight," especially after it's made its final bow.

There are other rather dubious nominations this year. A Worst Actress nom for Milla Jovovich? Sure, she's not going to win any "normal" awards for her performance, but she's the only reason we even still watch the damn "Resident Evil" movies. Also, David Hasselhoff's turn as a funhouse-mirror version of himself in "Piranha 3-DD" took meta-performance to a whole new level with its rather gonzo mix of macho arrogance and extreme self-loathing -- certainly not Worst Supporting Actor material, by any stretch.

Wretched trash like "That's My Boy," which earned seven nominations, deserves every bit of lashing the world can muster. But why hate on harmless dum-dum summer fare like "Battleship," which earned six nominations (including a completely ridiculous Worst Supporting Actor nod for Liam Neeson), and poor Tyler Perry, who earned nominations for his work in no less than three projects ("Good Deeds," "Madea's Witness Protection" and "Alex Cross")? The Razzies are coming across not so much as mean-spirited but simply nonsensical.

And really, a Worst Actress nomination for Barbra Streisand in "The Guilt Trip"? Sigh.

I've been over the Razzies since they nominated the entire Bush administration and Britney Spears for Fahrenheit 9/11. You give out goofy awards guys, don't get ahead of yourself. Also didn't they used to have fun categories? Or did they exclude fun categories this year just so they could take a stance against Twilight?

However, Tyler Perry deserves to win worst actor for Alex Cross. He is so amazingly terrible in that.

And I'll say it to anyone, including the whiny writer who wrote the piece- Battleship was worse than Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2.

Totally earned just by virtue of the fact that it's Tyler Perry.

Like I did with the Oscars, I went through to see what movies I need to see for a complete collection.

"The Oogieloves in Big Balloon Adventure"
"Good Deeds"
"Madea's Witness Protection"
"Atlas Shrugged Part II"
"One For the Money"
"Resident Evil: Retribution"
"The Guilt Trip"
"Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance"
"Seeking Justice"
"Playing For Keeps"
"What to Expect When You're Expecting"
"Pirannha 3-DD"
"The Three Stooges"

So 13 compared to 10, but they nominate people for multiple movies, which is bullshit. I was also planning on seeing Oogieloves the during its second weekend, but they rushed that out of theaters toot sweet. I would have needed to go to the suburbs to experience that, and I'm lazy.

Here's the thing about Battleship... It's schlock, but I didn't hate it. It was ridiculously ham handed and awful, but it wasn't terrible while watching it (old people slow motion walking montage). It was a big budget B movie. Brooklyn Decker was terrible. The guy who had no legs was abysmal. Taylor Kitsch is a schmuck. Rihanna is a moron, but it wasn't a bad movie to watch. Does that make sense?

I don't need to watch Twilight to know it's terrible. And that's because Kristen Stewart is one of the worst actors I've ever seen. Everything she's in is shit. I've seen high school actors with better acting chops. Hell, every actor in Battleship is better than that vapid bore.

Yes. I was expecting (and hoping) that it would be way worse than it was, but it ended up being an unironically enjoyable movie.

.

I think you are right. The fix is in as by them trying too be hip by trashing Twilight by having it sweep the awards.
