Sometimes it's an honor just to be nominated – but not when it comes to the Razzies.
The nomination ballots for the awards celebrating the worst movies of 2010 have just been mailed out, and "Burlesque" leads the pack, with nods for worst actress (Christina Aguilera), worst supporting actress (Kristen Bell and Cher), worst supporting actor (Cam Gigandet), worst screenplay, and worst director.
The glitzy musical was not, however, considered for worst picture, reports the L.A. Times. That distinction went to "The Bounty Hunter,” “Clash of the Titans,” “The Expendables,” “Grown Ups,” “Jonah Hex,” “Killers,” “The Last Airbender,” “Little Fockers,” “Sex and the City 2,” “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” “Vampires Suck” and “Yogi Bear.”
While Angelina Jolie got a Golden Globe nomination for lead comedy actress in "The Tourist," the same film also got her onto the Razzies' worst actress list. Jessica Alba made the cut for worst supporting actress thanks to her work in “The Killer Inside Me,” “Little Fockers,” “Machete” and “Valentine’s Day," joined by Emily Blunt for "The Wolfman" and "Gulliver's Travels."
Worst supporting actor contenders include Mickey Rourke for "The Expendables" and "Iron Man 2," and triple threat George Lopez for "Marmaduke," "The Spy Next Door" and "Valentine's Day."
Thanks to the 3-D craze, a new category has been added to the Razzies this year: worst eye-gouging misuse of 3-D. Among the movies that made their way onto the ballots: “Piranha 3D,” “Resident Evil: Afterlife," and “The Nutcracker in 3D.”
The official Razzie Award nominations will be announced January 24.
