The nominations for the 31st Annual RAZZIEÂ® Awards are out.Â Two films are at the top of heap in this year’s best of the worst.
RAZZIEÂ® Repeat Offender M. Night Shyamalan â€œre-imaginedâ€ the faux-anime TV series The Last Airbender into a jumbled, jump-cut mess of a movie that fans of the TV show hated even more than critics did (if thatâ€™s even possible!). In addition to Worst Director and Worst Picture, the film is up for Worst Remake, Worst Screenplay, Worst Screen Couple/Ensemble (the entire cast) and a brand-new RAZZIEÂ® category for 2010, Worst Eye-Gouging Mis-Use of 3-D. Neck-and-neck with Airbender in the RAZZIEÂ® race (while taking a decidedly bigger bite it at the box office) is last yearâ€™s 4th biggest money-maker, Twilight Saga: Eclipse, also with 9 shots at taking home spray-painted gold. All three of the principal characters of Eclipse are individually nominated for their acting, and the entire cast is also up for Worst Screen Ensemble.
The 31st Annual RAZZIEÂ® Awards will be announced at Hollywoodâ€™s Barnsdall Gallery Theatre at 7:30pm/PST on Saturday, February 26th.
