'Twilight,' Jennifer Aniston nab Razzie nominations
The Oscar nominees won't be announced until tomorrow, but in the meantime there are contenders for an even more eagerly anticipated prize: the Razzies, which honors the year's worst films and actors.
While "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" did big box office, it also made a killing with the Razzies, earning nominations for worst picture, worst actor (Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner each got a nod), worst actress (Kristen Stewart) and worst supporting actor (Jackson Rathbone).
"Sex & the City 2" was more fizzle than sizzle, earning a worst picture nomination as well as a collective worst actress nod for all four of its leading ladies.
Jennifer Aniston may have flopped in theaters, but she was a Razzies sweetheart, landing on the worst movie and worst actress list for "The Bounty Hunter," plus getting an additional worst actress nomination for "The Switch."
Jessica Alba fared even worse, getting a worst actress nomination for four of her 2010 films: "The Killer Inside Me," "Little Fockers," "Machete" and "Valentine's Day."
Will Alba follow in the footsteps of Halle Berry ("Catwoman") and Sandra Bullock ("All About Steve") and pick up her award in person if she wins? Find out when the Razzies are presented on February 26.
Until then, here is a complete list of this year's nominees:
Worst supporting actress
Worst supporting actor
Worst eye-gouging mis-use of 3-D (Special category for 2010!)
Worst screen couple/ Worst screen ensemble
Worst prequel, remake, rip-off or sequel (Combined category for 2010)
soundoff (145 Responses)

JENIFER ANISTON IS VERY GOOD FOR RAZZIE WINNER BECAUSE SHE HAS NO TALENT, UGLY BORING FACE AND MEDIA STIMULATOR
GOD DAM NIT!! I deserve much better than this. I make only quality movies youPHUCKIN haters. Its all you bloggers fault who wont support me and its Brads fault his wife fault. Im gonna bend over blow your way a MIGHTY MIGHTY FOUL BREEZE... *PPOOOOOOOTT*
so the girls in SATC were nominated Worst Actress as an ensemble? I disagree... Kim Cattrall saved the movie... and Liza too? She was in the film for like 5 minutes and actually was entertaining with her campy version of Beyonce's song
Worst everything was Shrek 4. Narnia was a close 2nd. Both had very bad screenplay. Luckily I had free tickets or I would have insisted a refund.
when is the movie industry going to get it???? Jennifer Anniston sucks,,,,I want to cut her hair off. and the smugness off her face. She belongs on TV........not in the movies,,,,,they just don't get it.
Haha the Razzies are the biggest troll I've ever seen. They just like to make people angry, and they're doing a pretty good job at it.
How the heck did Stallone get a nomination for The Expendables??? Best. Movie. Ever. Nobody makes movies like that anymore. Balls out action. How is that bad? Stallone for the win.
Robert Pattinson was AMAZING in "Remember me" they can trash him no matter what for "Twilight" so they can get ratings or whatever, but "Remember Me" was amazing and Robert Pattinson did a great job portraying the character.
wow! no mention of the tourist???
i'm surprised it took the Razzie committee this long to nominate Jennifer Aniston. ever since the end of Friends she's been churning out one bland, unforgettable performance after another. people have been giving her a pass because of the events in her personal life.
jessica Alba is a horrible actress. i don't think she has given one decent performance but she actually did a surprisingly good job in the killer inside me and her nomination is undeserved.
the last Airbender should be the nail in M. Night Shyamalyn's career.
jennifer aniston playing jennifer aniston playing jennifer aniston. how many times must we be subjected to her inability to act??
jennifer aniston playing jennifer aniston playing jennifer aniston playing jennifer aniston. she's the diane keaton of this generation. always the same role, always the same look, always the same dribble
I have a huge respect for acting,i have seen all those movies.yes maybe some were not good,but to call to get caLled terrible and many other things is just wrong.especially when half of the people who wrote these comments are not acTors yourself.so
You know the sad part about all of this BS is no matter who is nominated all these actors/actresses make more money than we do....think about that then ask yourself why do I bother posting on here...just saying lol
All rounds down to one thing ENVY people always criticize the rich because of envy....get over it!
At the end of the day who's got more fame and money not us peons posting this BS but the ones being criticized
I can't believe The Expendables didn't get more awards. That has got to be the worst movies I've seen in a long long time, especially the script. Why, Bruce and Arnold? I expect more of you!
I still love the twilight series(if u don't get it by now, u never will)...i'm with it till the end! and i'm not a tween or lonely house wife!
Too bad there's no TV categories, Lost would sweep them. Foxy for worst/most overpaid actor; Terry O'Quinn, Evangeline Lilly, Josh Holloway, Elizabeth Micthell, et al for biggest waste of acting talent; Damon Lindelof for worst writer/biggest whiner; Josh Holloway and Elizabeth Mitchell for most horribly acted romance (sorry, guys); and of course worst series finale of all time.
I hope Twilight pulls all the winnings it was nominated for. When judging the films for the acting talents, screenplay, art direction, special effects, etc. that film series really is THAT Bad. Ever wonder why the only two awards ceremonies Twilight has made nominations into is the Razzies and MTV movie awards(voted for by teens and twitards, only reason Twilight pulled awards here)? cough...From a viewpoint judging Twilight as a film and not just because its "Twilight", it has all the right Fail to win these awards.
I Luv Twilight!!
The only way I could get through any of these movies was with the Rifftrax. Because of Rifftrax, I can proudly say I watched, nay, enjoyed all three Twilight movies.
I've learned if Jennifer Anniston is starring in a movie - she generally plays a certain type of character over & over again. Cable had a Jennifer Anniston movie marathon = I only lasted 3-4 flicks until I pulled the plug. Until then I never realized how similar many of her roles are since I would generally just see her once or twice a year in a current flick. Boring! Why doesn't she take any risks in the movies she chooses? Is it because she is comfortable that her characters have zero depth & that matches her skills?
Same goes for Jack Black, Will Ferrell, Michael Cera, and John Heder among multiple other "talents"....
Well, they certainly got it right when it came to the "Last Air Bender".
The 3 book series was great and told well though moral lessions. The movie taught of incompetence and greed of producers.
How did Gullivers Travels not end up as worst movie..i had to clench my teeth the whole way through...ok not the whole way through..i couldnt take it to the end..i had to leave..it was an insult to all the viewers, it was like having your movie theatre money robbed from you...they should have had someone outside apologys to everyone and give them their money back and a free ticket to something that wasnt paramount to torture
Again the Razzies shows they know NOTHING about the films they are giving Razzies to. The Razzies have become just as big a joke as the Oscars, congrats. As for the rest of the commentors, seriously go see these movies and form your own opinions! Stop being the sheep these idiots want you to be with their blatantly biased opinions based on misconception and public opinion that is largely uninformed.
How the heck did The American not get nominated for worst picture or any nominations whatsoever? It was by far the most boring movie of all time! Not even George Clooney's presence could save that steaming pile of you-know-what.
Killers should win it all.worse than elektra,and thats freaking hard to pull off.worst.movie.ever.
These people failing at work still make 90% more then I do!
I agree with all the nominations except Eclipse – I don't think it belongs on the list. An why wasn't Jennifer Lopez's truly awful The Back up Plan nominated?
I meant to say NOT nominated.
Aniston is a very capable actress, and solidly reliable in her comedic talent, as well as in dramatic roles. Razzie Schmazzie. We love you, Jennifer.
The Last Airbender was the worse. M. Night Shyamalan obviously never bothered to actually LOOK at the original Nicktoon series (which is really a quite good series). He chopped up the plot, the cast was horrible, and he had the nerve to try to set it up for a sequel (which given how badly this film was panned probably WON'T happen. Thank goodness), well if he was going to try to mimic the original it would be two sequels.
What happened to M. Night Shyamalan? He had a few decent movies then he started putting out heaping piles of FAIL!
it's so sad that The Last Airbender did this well for razzie nods....i love the tv show so much but the movie sucked so much it made me cry.
I HOPE IT WINS EVERYTHING IT WAS NOMINATED FOR! THE MOVIE NEEDS A REBOOT WITH A BETTER DIRECTOR!!!
Or maybe it's just time to let the franchise die.
Why isn't 'The Tourist' on this list?
It would've been on that list, but it was nominated at the Golden Globes. So I believed that they use The Tourist to get nominated at that award so they can avoid the razzies.
Who cares!? These actors/directors are laughing about it all the way to the bank! It is sad though that they make millions for such terrible work! The general public loses their jobs when they do a bad job at work!
Most critics said that Eclipse was the best of the three, so I was surprised by this. I just saw New Dawn on TV and it wasn't that bad. My gut feeling is that the Razzies want to make a name for itself by going after 'hot' movies. And I do think the most of Kristen, so calling her the worst is ridiculous (even though I didn't see the movie).
Jen is in the top 5 of all time worst actress's – but i'd still let her give me BJ!! LOL
how do you think she still gets movie roles? On her knees that is her one and only talent
I think they need to overlook what they are writing up there because Robert does not suck...
Amen to that!
We enjoyed the Aniston movie, who picks the razzles, team Jolie?
Don't like the nominations? Next year, actually join the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation and have a vote! Just visit their website at http://www.razzies.com.
I vote for poor little Jennifer Anniston to win as she is never going to take home any other award for being in movies.
Of course there would be an Anniston lover commenting on this putting Angelina Jolie down....get over it. Angelina is a better actress and not just better than Anniston; she is a good actress. Anniston will continue to make the same movie over and over until hopefully she gets it right. Maybe once she grows out of her "Friends" role at 50 or so.
The Twilight Saga Eclipse nods 9 nominations? Granted, not the best movie of the year, but I can name at least 10 movies as far worse. Some include such notables as Jonnhy Depp, Angelina Jolie, Robert Downey Jr., Julia Roberts, get my drift?
Ok, so Kristen Stewart is terrible as Bella, but Robert Patterson, though not his best work, was not so bad. I guess I have bad taste, because I thought Vampires Suck was pretty funny.
Say what you will about Jen Aniston, but to say that she "flopped" in theaters is just dishonest and and lazy reporting.
Bounty Hunter had a $40m budget and earned over $150m worldwide.
Along Came Polly had a $42m budget and earned over $170m worldwide.
Marley and Me had only a $10m budget and earned over $250m worldwide.
And there are many more with similar lines (He's Just Not That into You, Bruce Almighty, etc.).
These aren't Citizen Kane. But they made a lot of money.
Do people here really wonder why she keeps getting big roles? Really?
Truth is – as long as Jennifer's movies haul in the mega bucks per cost, why wouldn't she still get the parts? I did see Bruce Almighty, but don't recall any others so I don't know much about her acting. I do know that hauling in the box office bucks guarantees her more films to come, if she wants them.
Woot for The Last Airbiscuit
Must be a male that puts this list together... 🙁
Aniston has such a killer body
Well maybe there is another Dave on here. Then again, maybe you should take a look back at "Jeremy" at 11:46 and
the reply from "Dave" at 12:01.
congratulations luna youve realized there is more than one dave in the world. learn how to attach your comments to the right posting using the "reply" link and you wont put your foot in your mouth. youre welcome.
Jen. A. should concentrate in trying to find a good movie script for a change, she has been making these very silly comedies, and put them out as if they were a bunch of confetti.
She needs to prove that she can act. and not just make movies for no reason whatsoever.
If you are going to slam people on their incorrect spelling just because you don't agree with their point of view, you should probably get a dictionary and check your own grammar.
When you wrote "site", the correct word in your sentence should have been "cite", as in "to give an example or quote".
The word site refers to the scene of a specified event.
I am assuming that you are one of those people who likes to be corrected since you're so good at correcting others.
i dont know who youre talking to since i never said anything about any ones spelling nor would i since it would be juvenile to complain about misspellings in a blog like this.
i pray jennifer win
Ashton Kutcher, Rob Schneider, and M. Night shouldn't be allowed to be qualified. The stuff they do is so bad...
I love the Razzies - formal recognition that you can make a celebrity out of anyone, but an actor? Not so much.
Bounty Hunter was FARworse than Twilight. It was just all around awful in EVERY category. Twilight delivered on what its targeted to be....Last Airbender more or less so , I don't fault them. Bounty Hunter could actually be the worst movie since the 70's I've paid to see. Definitley the worst romantic comedy I ever paid to see.
Jennifer Aniston, couldn't have happened to a more deserving person. I have never understood the hype about her.
where is the last exorcist ??? the movie with no ending. they ran out of film and called it a day !!!
razzies have no credibility at all.
Oh ya, don't get me started on Jennifer Aniston...I didn't even like her when she was on that "friends" show:p
I personally love the Twilight movies, I'm currently reading "Breaking Dawn" and I can't wait for the movie to come out this summer. The actors in the movies are great! I didn't know what the hype was in the beginning until I actually watched the movies:D I can't believe it's actually in this category....what a crock:/
Why does Jennifer Aniston keep making pictures? She is one of the worst actresses – no range at all. All her pictures are "throw away" and are hardly remembered 15 minutes after one leaves a theater. I actually feel sorry for this woman.
I agree. Hollywood, do us all a favor & stop giving this woman a job!
I don't feel sorry for her. I actually envy her. She gets paid to do nothing but play the same Rachel character over & over & oooooover again. I feel sorry for those people who shelled their hard-earned money to watch her lousy movies.
I agree as well. She did show at least some range and decent acting a few years ago with "The Good Girl" but pretty much ever since it's just one bad 'romantic comedy' disaster after another.
She was pretty good in "Management" with Steve Zahn.
But that is about it. She needs to get out of those awful and worthless romantic comedies if she wants to show her range as an actress, but I guess the loads of money she gets for those are enticing enough.
Where are all of the artsy-fartsy, suck-the-life out of you movies? There were plenty of 'well-reviewed' movies this year that left me with a burning desire to see if I could have them surgically removed from my brain with a claw hammer. Surely it could not hurt more than watching some of that drivel. It's easy to pick on the low hanging fruit, but come on, Razziers, aim higher and give us some of the 'loved by critics' movies to make your list semi-legitimate.
Dennis, thanks for the laugh, I love the claw hammer reference.
I'm right there with you on that - in fact, I no longer pay money to see the critically acclaimed so-called "high brow" films that win film festival prizes in places like Toronto or Venice. If they make it to cable, I might tune in if I'm having trouble sleeping.
Okay, Dennie: which movies in your opinion?
I used to enjoy the Razzies when they actually went after the terrible film makers and actors out there. They used to come up with the best stuff. Unfortunately, they realized there is no money to be made going after films people never heard of, so all the Razzies do now is the exact opposite of what they were intended to do. All the Razzies do is confirm who the most popular actors are of the year. If you win a Razzie, there's a very high chance you raked in a lot of money that year. Doing it this way just means the Razzies get a lot of exposure, since you can't make fun of high profile people to the masses and get ignored. Razzies are a great idea that had to go mainstream in order to survive and now they are just a place for failed actors and people who go out of their way to be "different" to make fun of those who are successful.
i totally agree. they want to pick on known actors to sensationalize their own agenda. "switch" for example was not a bad movie. also last air bender can no way be called a bad movie. visually i dont know what else you could ask for. they site "eye gouging 3d" well what else is 3d supposed to achieve ? are you not supposed to notice it was in 3d ???
@ Dave and Humtake
Clearly you guys are offended on being called out for your terrible taste in movies. Sorry, but every movie that was nominated was god awful. Some movies are just objectively bad and are only worthwhile to people with subpar IQ's. You guys fall into that category.
And yet they keep paying Jennifer Aniston to make one bomb after the other. When will Hollywood wake up? Never!
The Last Airbender was horrible if you have ever watched the cartoon. They took an overall smiling, happy kid and turned him into this brooding... whatever. Supporting characters were, well okay so theoretically they shared the same names, even if the pronunciations were horrid.
Shamalamadingdong needs to stop messing with movies. Seriously. The Sixth Sense was good. Signs was not bad. Unbreakable didn't even suck. But lately... someone needs to take away his camera or something.
they didnt mispronounce the names, they used the traditional Asian pronounciations. the cartoon doesn't
hey!! zagiba. how dare u, she's a nice lady!!!
I know a lot of nice people who can't act.
my children should have been nominated. i took them to visit grandparents over the weekend and they acted horrible
Nice work Nancy, very nice
Are you sure they were just acting?
It's about time Jennifer Aniston has been recognized as the worst actress.. Why do they continue to give her money.
Oh I know practice makes perfect, but, not with her. Spare us all the pain..
I have to agree with previous comments that the The Last Airbender was not that bad. For taking 20 episodes of a TV show and trying to cram it all in to one movie, character development is going to suffer a bit. The actors could have been picked better, for sure (perhaps a Zuko who was actually bald), and the acting wasn't great, but it was a MUCH better movie than most of these others on this list.
It's ok Jen, i'll take you in and provide for you!
Some of the movies on this list I thought were very good, while some I agree were terrible. I think a clean sweep by Twilight is going to happen.
sorry Jen it was an awful movie....it just was...I hope you get better roles and you pass on the garbage movies.
It was better than "Management" which is not saying much......
i never understood the uproar over last air bender. it was not a bad movie. people were basing their opinions of the movie against an entire series of videos or books, not the same and cannot be compared fairly. keeping in mind its audience is young people i cant see it being panned the way it is. people who thought this was a terrible movie havent seen enough bad movies.
I still liked The Last Airbender. Granted, the acting was bad, but if you've seen all the cartoons (which I, unfortunately have numerous times thanks to my 5 year old), the plot was pretty spot on. So, the movie plot/scenery/etc was good. The acting... not so much.
I agree also.
I'm with you. Saw it with my kids and found it to be enjoyable.
My wife and I enjoyed the SatC series and the first movie, but the second movie was the worst. The writing and acting was gawd awful. It deserves to win the Razzie for worst picture because it really disappointed fans. No one expects much from Twilight, I mean come on, nor does anyone expect much from M. Night anymore. Also if Jennifer Aniston ever leaves Hollywood then so does the romantic "comedy" genre. She's got to give it a rest. Jason Bateman is a great comedic actor/straight man and he didn't deserve The Switch.
My feeling about SATC 2 is that they've already invested the money and it became the point of no return. Half way into the movie I'm sure they saw how large of a disaster it was going to be.
Is this the first time Jennifer Aniston has been nominated for a Razzie? Not that she hasn't deserved it in the past...I'm just wondering what took so long?!
She failed miserably as an actress after FRIENDS. Her personal relationships have all been failures, including her marriage to Brad Pitt. Lately she's been on magazine covers barely dressed (you may have a cute body but you should leave this for Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift). She needs to re-invent herself or find another career. Gerard Butler, as her closed friend tell her the Ugly Truth about men/women relationships.
M. Night Shyamalan has not made a good movie since the Sixth Sense, who keeps giving this guy money to make movies?
I keep wondering the same thing. Must be people who need a huge tax write off ... or maybe there's a way to launder drug money that way.
Its more like each movie he makes is worse than the one before...6th sense was obviously teh best.. Signs wasnt as good but it was ok....the Village wasnt horrible but not as good as signs.. etc etc....I dont know how much worse it can get though because teh last couple were brutal
I agree. The Sixth Sense was the only one worth watching. I was able to guess the whole plot of The Village 20 minutes in because he ripped it off from a book called Running Out of Time that I read when I was a kid. The book was written in the mid 90s so it definitely came first. Seriously if you don't believe me read this: http://www.helium.com/items/1189215-running-out-of-time-plot-summary-margaret-peterson-haddix
I like M. Night – but yeah, I wasn't totally happy with The Last Airbender. But then again it was a fun movie for kids. I don't see why people hate on M. Night so much.
you mean you didnt like the happening? haha worst movie i have ever seen.
yeah twilight sucks balls just a dumb movie about a human chick and a gay vampire that are uptight and wont shut up and stop wining soo dude dont watch in warning you go watch the town
Don't you mean the gay werewolf?
I believe all listed should earn Razzies because they each earned it!
dang. i never saw twilight or had any interest with the teen-vampire-romance genre. was it THAT bad?
Twilight was horrible. Horrible teen angst acting, slow and dull, with almost no plot at all. It was advertised as the best of the three, but it seemed by far the worst to me.
I have only seen eclipse...on my wife's birthday... I promised I'd hold my tongue through it, and did pretty well (though it was torture) until the last 10 minutes... needless to say no fun time for me that night. 🙁 STUPID ECLIPSE!
@Jeremy – Your one horrid movie with your wife will reap rewards for years. 😉
I tried to watch the first one when it came to cable, got about 40 minutes in and gave up on finding any redeeming qualities. Some of the actors look nice when you see them in other work where they actually crack a smile now and then, but in this series, everyone is so serious and so unhappy. Boring.
You know Peeps.. if you have the word spouse, wife, husband in your comment more than likely you are not the target audience for Twilight...
YOU IZ LAME YOU DONT HAVE AN INTEREST ON ANYTHING, OKAY? YOU IS LEIK, SQUARE. MORE LIKE A TRIANGLE. NOW HIT ME BABY ONE MORE TIME
@ Mike Maz–
You're so right. Why would anyone past puberty give a rat azz about Twilight? Adults wearing Team What-his-name t-shirts just look creepy. Grow up.
I've only seen the commercials, but my girlfriend and I always make fun of the one where Kristen Stewart's character goes "Jake....Doooooonnt." Anyone know which commercial/scene I'm talking about? Where that mentally-challenged looking wolf is attacking that vampire that looks like he has cancer?
So now you named off every movie made this year what are we sopossed to look at for winners. I think the only movie you didnt bash on is the tourist jesus christ dude....
That's pretty pathetic if you think those stinkers were "the only movies made this year". You really need to broaden your scope. The word is "supposed", by the way, but maybe that kind of explains why you think those were the only movies made this year.
Don't be mad because you like terrible movies. All these films are atrocious.
Yes, I completely agree with the Razzies list of worst actors and movies. Please, get a real job and stop wasting your life making these silly movies.
Then stop wasting your life and writing these silly comments.
For all the actors named, you all are not too old to enjoy acting lessons perhaps for the first time. I am not kidding. Start at the beginning. Yes, we are talking about YOU.
hmmmm, just a few weeks ago, they announce Angelina Jolie for worst actress in The Tourist. Now, she magically disappears and is replaced by Jennifer Anniston? Can you really buy these guys off? Wonder how much it cost Jolie/Pitt?
i know what you're talking about ldean. i think you're talking about this article: http://marquee.blogs.cnn.com/2011/01/04/burlesque-in-the-lead-for-upcoming-razzie-noms/?iref=obinsite
They sent out the ballots to the members & they pick who gets nominated. Coz I dont see Christina Aguilera's name here either and she was mentioned in that article.
She is a definite winner!
I agree, the Tourist was horrible. Nobody nominated Xtina because she's not famous enough. They don't care enough to nominate her. If you look at the nominations, they are big stars that have had otherwise incredible success. Xtina has sucked for years, her last album flopped. Cher is an icon that's why she's on the list. They only pick of the most famous people. Razzie people are mostly just jealous of these people IMO.
Funny how Eclipse is listed as one of the worst movies but it is the second most profitable movie of 2010. It took in over $440 Million.
@ Jason: Just because something sucks doesn't mean people won't buy it. Case in point–Taylor Swift.
I certainly hope that was an attempt to troll.
