"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2" is bringing the franchise to a close not with a bang, but with a slew of nominations in an awards ceremony that celebrates "the berry worst" in film.
The final installment in the "Twilight" series leads the pack of 2012's Razzie Award nominees with nods in all 10 categories, including worst picture.
For that award, "Breaking Dawn - Part 2" will have to edge out other poorly received films like "Battleship"; "The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure"; Eddie Murphy's "A Thousand Words"; and Adam Sandler's comedy with Andy Samberg, "That's My Boy."
"Breaking Dawn - Part 2" also picked up a worst director nod for Bill Condon; a worst screenplay nod for Melissa Rosenberg; and entries in the worst supporting actor (Taylor Lautner) and worst supporting actress (Ashley Greene) categories. Romantic leads Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are nominated in the worst actor and actress categories, respectively.
In the latter field, Stewart is a repeat entry with another worst actress nomination for her work in last summer's "Snow White and the Huntsman."
The film's stars will compete against one another for the worst screen couple award, as Lautner and child actor Mackenzie Foy will face off against Stewart and Pattinson.
It's tough competition in that category overall, as those two pairs are up against "any two cast members" of "Jersey Shore" in the "Three Stooges," Adam Sandler and "multiple actors" in "That's My Boy," and Tyler Perry and "his drag get-up" in "Tyler Perry's Madea's Wit[n]ess Protection." (The press release actually calls the film “Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Witless Protection."]
"Breaking Dawn - Part 2" is also nominated for the worst remake, rip-off or sequel award as well as the worst ensemble (dis)honor.
For any potentially offended "Twilight" fans, look at it this way: The odds are in "Twilight's" favor that it'll sweep the ceremony.

Well this was a no-brainer.

I'm not sure what flashdance clothes are, but pretty sure they would stand out in the bars I go to. There have been a few pearl necklaces found in the parking lot though
Really? Then I suggest you put your money where your mouth is. Throw away your tv and don't go to any movies.
and not wash my hair not shower so i smell llike a red snapper–instead of pearls i'll wear those stupid
spike necklaces and those stupid flashdance clothes they wear at the bar.
