Just as Hollywood gets set to honor the best of 2010 tonight, the Razzies paid their own tribute to the worst and topping the "winners" was certainly one the year's most egregious entries.

M. Night Shyamalan's post-converted, woodenly acted and dreadfully boring "The Last Airbender" swept many of the major categories, earning Razzies for Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst Supporting Actor, Worst Screenplay and Worst Most Eye-Gouging Mis-Use Of 3D -- no argument from us on any of those counts. While we can argue about other terrible films that deserved "recognition" (for this writer, "Grown Ups" was offensively bad on a level even 'Airbender' failed to reach), Shyamalan did himself no favors with a picture that was misguided on nearly every front. The other big "winner" was "Sex And The City 2," all four leads took home the distinction of Worst Actress, the rest of the cast didn't escape notice either helping to land the film Worst Ensemble while the film itself was labeled Worst Sequel.

So before tonight celebrates the best, here's a reminder of the dreck that Hollywood is also capable of serving up. Full list of "winners" below. [Razzies]

    I would tend to agree that the Razzies have lost their luster, but they were the first, and when they put out the list, it gets reported on. Maybe they should televise it?
    Also, it seems to me that they go for popular-bad movies, like they don't watch EVERY movie and go from there.
    But I guess poking fun at popular films is kind of the point.

    The Razzies tend to have one movie that wins most of the categories in any given year, which does make them less interesting than they should be. Granted, the Oscars are less fun when one film sweeps them too, but they have more categories and it seems to happen every year for the Razzies. A rule that a movie can only be nominated in two categories would help immensely.

    Every week releases a contender for "worst movie of the year." The Razzies are just too small-scaled.

    Is anyone else totally bored with the razzies? They were pretty funny when I was a kid, but now there's a trillion lists and blog posts about awful movies, so once this show comes around, all I can think is, "Yeah, we know." For some reason, despite all of the lists about BEST movies of the year, I'm still inclined to catch the Oscars, but the Razzie results are pretty boring to read.
