LOS ANGELES — The “Twilight” finale had better reviews than the franchise’s previous four movies, but you’d never know it from the Razzie nominations singling out Hollywood’s worst of the year.
“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2” led the Razzies lineup Tuesday night with 11 nominations, including worst picture, lead-acting slots for Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson and supporting-acting nominations for Taylor Lautner and Ashley Greene.
Other worst-picture nominees are the naval action tale “Battleship,” the family flick “The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure,” Adam Sandler’s raunchy dud “That’s My Boy” and Eddie Murphy’s comedy flop “A Thousand Words.”
A spoof of the Academy Awards, the Razzies announcement comes a little more than a day before the Oscar nominations. Razzie winners will be announced Feb. 23, the night before the Oscar ceremony.
