'Twilight' Leads Razzies With 11 Nominations

8:03 PM PST 01/08/2013 by Aaron Couch

"That's My Boy" and "Battleship" were close behind in the contest for Hollywood's worst of 2012.

The final Twilight film may have torn up the box office, but the vampire flick also sucked the life out of cinema -- at least according to the organizers of the Razzie Awards. The annual fete celebrating Hollywood's worst actors and filmmakers released its nominees Tuesday, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II led the pack in total nominations.

Thanks to doing double-duty in the "worst screen couple" category, the final Twilight earned 11 nominations in just 10 categories. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were joined by Taylor Lautner and his disturbingly young love interest Mackenzie Foy in the category.

The largely panned Adam Sandler-Andy Samberg comedy That’s My Boy was close behind, with eight nominations, while Battleship rounded out the top three with seven nominations.

Other notables included Tyler Perry's nominations for both worst actor and worst actress (thanks to his gender-bending role in Madea's Witness Protection) and “any two” Jersey Shore cast-members appearing in The Three Stooges getting nods for worst onscreen couple.

The 33rd annual Golden Raspberry Awards ceremony will be held Saturday, Feb. 23, the day before the Oscars.
