LOS ANGELES: 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 e-mailed ballots from 657 voting members in the United States and 19 other countries.
