Twilight Breaking Dawn 2

2012 wasn't lacking in terrible films, but it seems for the folks at the annual Razzie Awards – celebrating the very best of the worst – it was time to honor one franchise for delivering consistently schlocky films to massive box office success.

Last night, the organization "honored" "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2" with eight awards, including Worst Picture, Worst Actress, Worst Supporting Actor, Worst Screen Ensemble, Worst Director, Worst Remake, Rip-Off Or Sequel and Worst Screen Couple. Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner in particular were singled out for terribleness, though Robert Pattinson got off the hook, and it wasn't the only movie to get a stamp of disapproval.

Adam Sandler, who dominated last year's awards with "Jack & Jill," earned Worst Actor for "That's My Boy" and the movie itself nabbed Worst Screenplay. Meanwhile, Rihanna's screen debut in "Battleship" earned her Worst Supporting Actress.
