The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

Story by Jack Foley

THE final instalment of the Twilight saga, Breaking Dawn: Part 2 leads this year’s Razzie nominations with a total of 11 nominations in just 10 categories.

The annual awards ceremony exists to single out the worst movies of the past 12 months and has shortlisted Breaking Dawn Part 2 as worst film and worst sequel, while also placing Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson among the contenders for “worst screen couple”.

Pattinson also gets shortlisted as worst actor, while Stewart gets a dual nod for Twilight and Snow White & The Hunstman. The film’s director, Bill Condon, is on the director shortlist, while Taylor Lautner features among the worst supporting actor nominees.

The film, which is still on general release, has so far made $814m (£507m) at the global box office.

Other films to secure multiple nominations among this year’s Razzie categories are summer blockbuster flop Battleship with seven, including a worst supporting actress nod for pop star Rihanna, while Adam Sandler’s comedy That’s My Boy picked up eight.

Actor-director Tyler Perry followed in Sandler’s footsteps by being cited for worst actor and worst actress, courtesy of his cross-dressing role in Madea’s Witness Protection.
