Final 'Twilight' film sweeps anti-Oscar Razzie awards

The last "Twilight" film won the dubious honor Saturday of being awarded seven Razzies, Hollywood's anti-Oscar Golden Raspberry prizes, handed out on the eve of the real Academy Awards. "Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2" won worst film, worst director for Bill Condon and worst actress for Kristen Stewart, as well as worst supporting actor, worst screen couple, worst screen ensemble and worst remake/rip-off or sequel.
The film fell short of last year's clean sweep of all 10 categories for "Jack and Jill" starring Adam Sandler -- who won this year's worst actor for "That's My Boy," which also took the worst screenplay. Worst supporting actress at the 33rd annual Razzies show -- held just down the road from Hollywood's Dolby Theatre where the 85th Academy Awards take place Sunday -- went to singer Rihanna, making her big screen debut in "Battleship."
The winners of nine of the 10 categories were chosen by emailed ballots from 657 voting members in the United States and 19 other countries. The worst remake/rip-off or sequel winner was decided by a poll conducted on movie review website RottenTomatoes.com, where nearly 70,000 votes were cast, according to Razzie organizers.
Nominees who failed to win a Razzie included veteran diva Barbra Streisand for worst actress in mother-son road movie "The Guilt Trip," while Sandler beat rivals including Nicolas Cage and Eddie Murphy to worst actor. Besides "Twilight," the other films shortlisted for worst movie of 2012 were "Battleship," family movie "The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure," "That's My Boy" and "A Thousand Words" starring comedy veteran Murphy.
