TWILIGHT: BREAKING DAWN – PART TWO Sweeps Razzies With Seven Wins

BreakingDawnLosersTwilight: Breaking Dawn – Part Two has swept last evening’s 33rd Annual Golden Raspberry Awards, winning seven prizes in the annual recognition for the year’s worst films and performances. Demonstrating that just because a film is a moneymaker doesn’t necessarily mean that it is any good, Breaking Dawn – Part Two earned wins for Worst Picture, Worst Actress (Kristen Stewart) Worst Supporting Actor (Taylor Lautner), Worst Screen Couple (Lautner and 12 year-old Mackenzie Foy), Worst Screen Ensemble, Worst Remake/Rip-Off or Sequel and Worst Director for Bill Condon.

Amazingly, the film’s seven category win didn’t manage to eclipse last year’s eight time win for Adam Sandler’s Jack & Jill. Snadler did manage to repeat a win in the Worst Actor category this year for That’s My Boy. Sandler’s screenplay for That’s My Boy also managed to beat out Breaking Dawn‘s script for Worst Screenplay by one vote.

Rounding out the 10 award categories was Rhianna earning Worst Supporting Actress for her work in last summer’s Battleship.

According to the press release released by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation –

Nominees and “winners” for 9 of this year’s 10 RAZZIE categories were determined by ballots e-mailed to 657 Voting Members throughout 47 U.S. states and 19 foreign countries. For the 10th category, Worst Remake/Rip-Off or Sequel, both nominees and “winners” were decided by conducting a poll at RottenTomatoes.com, in which nearly 70,000 votes were cast.
