'Breaking Dawn: Part 2' Sweeps Razzie Nominations but Doesn't Deserve Worst Movie of the Year

Breaking Dawn: Part 2Everyone gets all hyped up for the Golden Globes and the Oscars, but personally, I'm always excited to see who gets nominated for the Golden Raspberry Awards, AKA the Razzies. Come on, you've heard of 'em right? Essentially they're the awards for the worst films of the year, and I'm sorry for all you Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Twilight fans out there -- but it seems that Breaking Dawn: Part 2 REALLY rang in the nominations this year.

Yup, the film landed 11 nominations in categories including Worst Picture, Ensemble, Director, Actor, and Actress, among others. Come on, guys! As a person who never caught onto the Twilight series until the end because I'm not into that sort of witches, wizards, and vampires sorta thing, I didn't even think it was that bad.

In fact, I think that compared to its dishonorable competition, it's actually pretty good. Here, let's take a look at the list of the 2013 Razzie nominees, and you can see what I mean:


Worst Actor

  • Nicolas Cage -- Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance
  • Eddie Murphy -- A Thousand Words
  • Robert Pattinson -- Breaking Dawn: Part 2
  • Tyler Perry -- Alex Cross, Good Deeds
  • Adam Sandler -- That's My Boy

Ghost Rider HAS to own Breaking Dawn in this category. According to critics, the film was a massive snoozefest. Instead of riding off blazing into the night, all Nicolas Cage did in this movie was recite horrible cheesy lines.

Worst Actress

  • Katherine Heigl -- One for the Money
  • Milla Jovovich -- Resident Evil: Retribution
  • Tyler Perry -- Madea's Witness Protection
  • Kristen Stewart -- Breaking Dawn: Part 2
  • Barbra Streisand -- The Guilt Trip

Another classic example of Katherine Heigl playing herself. At least in Breaking Dawn: Part 2 Kristen Stewart exhibits some sort of skill with all those extra powers.

Worst Picture

  • Battleship
  • The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure
  • That's My Boy
  • A Thousand Words
  • Breaking Dawn: Part 2

You mean to tell me that when pinned against The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure, Taylor Lautner's abs wouldn't give Breaking Dawn a leg up on the competition? Ha, there's no contest.

Do you think the critics are being too hard on Breaking Dawn: Part 2?
