The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2

While many would like to think that snark was something born of the Internet age, the fact that the Razzie Awards for Worst Achievements in Film are now in their thirty-third year pretty demonstrably proves that to be untrue.  There’s an uncomfortable truth at the center of all this, which is, to snark, to pass judgment, to make fun of things that fail publicly and spectacularly—it’s all kind of fun, at least in a sick way. If it wasn’t, something like The Razzies wouldn’t be able to stick around this long. In recent years, however, the film industry’s laser focus on building franchises and sticking to the same formulas has taken a little bit of the fun out of seeing who gets picked on for being the worst of the year. A crop of usual suspects has developed, making the announcement that the latest Twilight movie and the latest Adam Sandler comedy have earned the lion’s share of the nominations something of a tedious formality.

So, here we are, having yet again sat through another Twilight movie and another Adam Sandler comedy, and, sure enough, it seems that they’ve once again gotten the bulk of the nominations. If there’s any new narrative going on, it’s that Madea’s Witness Protection seems to have annoyed the people who vote for the Golden Raspberries more than usual. Perhaps that’s due to Jack & Jill making men in drag a more contemptible offense after last year, or perhaps it’s because they’re trying to set someone up as Adam Sandler’s successor if something happens to him and he can no longer be the King of the Razzies. That’s hard to say, but what’s clear is that Tyler Perry really takes a pounding.

Take a look at all the nominations (with the original snarky misspellings and strange abbreviations left intact) for yourself and let us know what your favorites and least favorites are. Who are you pulling for (Rihanna in the Worst Supporting Actress category!)? Is there anything that’s on here unfairly (Vanilla Ice was the best part of that movie!)? Was there a real stinker that they’ve missed (Project X!)?
