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

Say What!? 16

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?

I didn't like part two of breaking dawn.the first half was slow and boring and when it did pick up on action,we sit through it all to find out it was only a vision.reminded me of bobby ewing on dallas,when a whole season never happened cos they said he was dreaming.

Wow! Really! The critics need to have their heads examined or give it up to those who know what good really is.

That is the craziest thing I have ever heard....that was an awesome movie....I think the movie ended great...they know everyone luvs the Twilight Series and I guess they just had to be the haters on this one....people like that make me sick!!!

I don't know why they have to be jealous of the Twilight Breaking Dawn part 2 movie. I saw all the Twilight movies and loved them all. I guess they have nothing better to say about themselves, so they have to pick on the best Movie Ever!
All i am saying is GET A LIFE!!!!!!!
And Rob, Kristen and the whole Twilight cast are the best!

Just because people want to hump the cast doesn't make it a good movie.  They really are just as terrible as they are made out to be.

How the HELL can they win award after award Kristen was the highest paid actress at least before she had her huge lapse in judgement.... Breaking dawn 2 was pretty close to the best one I thought the ending was awesome made me cry.

My husband even liked the movies. Except Eclipse. Battleship was horrible! And I don't agree with Adam Sandler either! I think people just hate the hype of Twilight! And the want to "razzie" everyone! It was def not the worst movie!
