Hollywood: January 11, 2013
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 earned a whopping eleven RAZZIE NOMINATIONS in Hollywood this week. Stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson will compete for individual Razzie Awards as well as the Worst Screen Couple title.
Right behind Twilight, Adam Sandler comedy flop, That’s My Boy was lavished with eight nominations. Action flick Battleship received seven, including one for Rihanna, who faces stiff competition from Jennifer Lopez in the Worst Supporting Actress category.
The famous gold spray-painted Razzie statuettes – said to be worth $4.79 (£2.93) each – will be given out at a ceremony in LA on February 23, the night before the Oscars.
If the public had their way, many would have put the new film, Les Miserables on the Razzie list.
The Golden Raspberry or “Razzie” Awards were founded by Hollywood publicist John JB Wilson in 1981 and have been held every year since on “Oscars eve”. Madonna has won an impressive nine Razzies over the years, while Sylvester Stallone has received a record 30 nominations.
