Los Angeles: Shunned by the Oscars and BAFTA, ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2’ has finally got the much-needed recognition it deserves, getting 11 nominations for the immensely parodic ‘Golden Raspberry Awards’.
The 33rd edition of the awards that crown the ‘worsts’ will announce its winners one day before the Academy Awards on February 23.
Twilight’s final cringe-worthy installment that goes under the guise of ‘a movie’ racked up 11 nominations within the 10 categories, with 2 nominations for the ‘Worst On-Screen Couple’ section. The miserably expressionless Kristen Stewart also garnered two nominations for ‘Worst Actress’ as both her performances in 2012 – Bella in ‘Twilight’ and Snow White in ‘Snow White and the Huntsmen’ – made it to the top 5 (or bottom 5) list.
Pointless bearer of abs Taylor Lautner has received a nomination for ‘Worst Supporting Actor’ and Robert Pattinson has bagged his Razzie nomination for ‘Worst Actor’ as well, a title that Sylvester Stallone has won multiple times in the past.
The award ceremony rarely sees anyone receive the dishonor, but some A-list celebrities have, in the past, been sporting enough to receive it in person.
Halle Berry, famously, received her Razzie for ‘Worst Actress’ (‘Catwoman’) and got on stage with her Academy Award (‘Best Actress’ for ‘Monster’s Ball’). With the two contrasting awards in each hand she went on to parody her Oscars’ speech saying: “Thank you so much. I never in my life thought I would be up here.” Thanking her manager, she joked: “He loves me so much that he convinces me to do projects even when he knows that it is shit.”
Let’s hope the cast of ‘Twilight’ are as sporting. At least it’ll make the existence of a movie-series like ‘Twilight’ minutely more acceptable.
