Razzies 2013: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 sweeps board

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

Story by Jack Foley

THE final Twilight, Breaking Dawn Part 2, has swept the board at Hollywood’s Razzie awards, which highlight the year’s worst films.

The film picked up seven prizes, including worst picture, worst actress for Kristen Stewart and worst supporting actor for Taylor Lautner.

It also won the worst director prize for Bill Condon, worst re-make, rip-off or sequel, worst screen ensemble and worst screen couple for Lautner and Mackenzie Foy.

Stewart combined her worst actress prize with her performances in Snow White and the Huntsman.

In ‘handing out’ the prizes, which take the form of a gold-coloured raspberry trophy, Razzies founder John Wilson said the worst thing about the franchise was that “people take it so seriously”.

The five films have made a total of $3bn (£1.9bn) at the box office.

Incredibly, the only main award for best actor was the only category in which Twilight ‘missed out’, with Adam Sandler beating Robert Pattinson to the trophy for his performance in That’s My Boy. That film also won worst script.

And pop star Rihanna picked up the worst supporting actress award for her debut role in Battleship, based on the board game.

The singer has just 68 lines of dialogue in the action movie and was described by Wilson as “Rambert – a female Rambo”.

“She’s following in the footsteps of Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and Madonna – singers who really can’t act but get paid millions of dollars anyway,” he said.

The Razzies were this year restored to their usual slot of being handed out on the eve of the Oscars having been moved to April Fools’ Day last year.
