The 33rd Annual Razzie Nominations have been announced. In case you've been living under a rock, the parodic award ceremony (dis)honors the worst films each year, usually just a few days before the Academy Award nominations are announced. This year is no different and "Twilight" fans will be receiving a little painful raspberry in the eye. "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part II" has been nominated in every single category. The Bill Condon-directed film even managed the feat of eleven nominations in only ten categories, including Worst Picture, Director, Lead Actress, Lead Male and, well... every other category.

Trailing not far behind are Adam Sandler's "That's My Boy" with eight nominations and "Battleship" with seven nods. Sadly, there was no special shaming mention for "Atlas Shrugged: Part II," but the film did earn itself two nods in total. The nominees are below.

    Twilight got in but Alex Cross and Red Dawn didn't? Hell, even That's My Boy deserved a bit of a reprieve over those films

  • Gorda | January 9, 2013 2:49 PMReply

    Congrats Twilight, you deserve it. Is not fair though Cosmopolis should have been nominated.

    It's great to see that a series like Twilight gets the honor it deservs. It's one of the worst series to ever make this much money. It makes Transformers look like Rashomon, and females should be as ashamed of it as guys are of Transformers. Even more so I hope.

  • gert | January 9, 2013 4:59 AMReply

    Cosmopolis should have been nomited as well.

  • gert | January 9, 2013 5:01 AM

    oh and another contender just came to mind. hunger games - hands down, the worst blockbuster of the year ( i haven't actually seen any movies that got these razzie nominations so yeah )

  • gert | January 9, 2013 5:00 AM

    nominated*

  • Craig mc | January 9, 2013 2:35 AMReply

    "Guys loved it" You did not watch that movie with any guys. I'm certain of that. What guys get excited about seeing bad CG fight scenes and listening to terrible actors flatly recite poorly written dialogue? Not me, and not any of the "guys" I know.

  • AS | January 9, 2013 12:17 AMReply

    I can't believe The Dictator got shutout.

  • CC3 | January 9, 2013 12:01 AMReply

    Prometheus got snubbed big time.

  • Meh. | January 8, 2013 10:45 PMReply

    Look, I'm not a big fan of Twilight, I wouldn't even call half of them "good", but come on razzies, this is a pretty lame choice. The Watch, One for the Money, Total Recall, Alex Cross, Madea's Witness Protection, Playing for Keeps, Rock of Ages, House at the End of the Street, The Apparition, Resident Evil: Retribution, and Atlas Shrugged II were all more deserving for the top spots, but the didn't make nearly as much money as Twilight did. This is just a cheap attempt to get a bit more attention. I used to enjoy the Razzies because they used to nominate the shitty films that truly deserved, but now I'm just dissappointed.

  • Tamara | January 8, 2013 10:12 PMReply

    Twilight films are embarrassing. I can't believe any girls would like this. I would never let my daughter read or watch this crap.

  • DJ | January 8, 2013 10:01 PMReply

    Alex Cross got robbed! Should've been nominated in the Worst Pic category.

  • BULLIES | January 8, 2013 8:51 PMReply

    "By (@luacheia99)" - TO: @raysubers The Twilight Saga will enter the history of the cinema as the most bulied and prediscriminated series of all times. Just because it is a female driven movie. A bunch of chauvinists think that women are dumb and ridiculous childish. It is fun to make jokes about it and its fanbase. It is a shame and will be analize in the future as the most misignost time period where growing men drowling about a ridiculous Iron Man or Jack Reacher or every comic book and trash what million of women in the world has the right to like without be discriminated as dumb and infantile. Never in my life saw a so dark period. Where haters, bullies and jerks are incetived by "serious" intelectual people with their predijuced opinion. Everything Twilight is a good joke... include serious actors, with years of praised performances and huge body of work forgotten, being just labelled as trash. What I did read and saw these last years is a shame. So... Twilight will not scape the Razzies this year because it is the last opportunity for one more bully and ignorant joke. I can assure you The fans of the Saga will get this one more insult as they did every other one in the last years. Doesn't matter for them because they know that in reality it just not say anything about them or of the movies but say a lot about the persons that are doing the bully or the bad and insulting joke.
    That said... I want you to know that, first I am not young, not American and not a "twihard", just an old female movie goer who is a fan of a lot of movie actresses and a young actress named Kristen Stewart, who I think is very gifted, very talented. It has been very interesting to watch her to grow as an artist, a person and a woman. Who I think has a bright future if she continues to do good choices.
    Just one more thing... look at the stats of all the Saga movies and all SWATH in your site Mojo and will see that 60 to 65 % of the audience IS NOT AMERICAN! It does say something, don't you think?

    By the way Indiewire, putting BD2 on your worst list was not a good move. You "honorable mentioned" it. Sorry, it made over $800 million as compared to the rest of your honorable mentions and NO it was not even close to being one of the worst films this year.

    There's a riot going on. You may want to just keep your list hush hushed before you have no credibility along with the Razzies. Oh, you may have done that already with your list. Indiewire on the same level as the Razzies. Not good.

  • Karl Doblin | January 8, 2013 8:40 PM

    Your "screenname" fits you perfectly, L for LOOOOOOOSSSSEEEEERRRRRRR

  • steve call | January 8, 2013 8:22 PMReply

    all horrible movies that deserve to be dishonored. Especially the Kstew/Rpatz garbage film. Those two kids are robots who run on batteries.

  • L | January 8, 2013 8:19 PMReply

    Collider and a lot of male critics and bloggers are saying that the Razzies are WRONG for nominating BD2. When guy bloggers are coming out against what the Razzies just did, they just may have put the knife in their own backs. Everyone is defending BD2 especially the twist to the ending with the fight. Guys loved it. "@colliderfrosty: agreed RT @misterpatches: Fact: Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 does not deserve any Razzie nominations." "@Sam_Strange: The Razzies deserve to be made fun of." "@EricDSnider @misterpatches Oh, I'm definitely on board w/mocking terrible movies.The Razzies just go after the popular,low-hanging fruit" "@EricDSnider Fact: 97% of people who would describe BREAKING DAWN PART 2 as one of the worst movies of 2012 did not see it."

    Sorry Razzies, if you wanted attention, you're getting it but not the kind you think.

  • To Be Fair... | January 8, 2013 8:23 PM

    you gotta mention people that are respectable though.

  • Tee | January 8, 2013 8:02 PMReply

    Anyone who ACTUALLY saw Breaking Dawn Part 2 said the fight was awesome. You cannot have that much positive reactions by fans in the theater, it make their biggest box office to date to SUCK that much to make EVERY CATEGORY. It is so obvious that the Razzies are attacking the franchise. People are really tweeting their anger and the kicker is that it's guys who are defending Breaking DAwn 2! They really liked that fight.

    The Razzies are being slammed by CRITICS too for picking on Twilight! LMAO! I thought I never thought I'd see the day.

  • George | January 8, 2013 7:49 PMReply

    Really? Someone actually felt self important enough to think this deserved a press release? Sadder still, someone here thought it was worth posting? Where is the courage and satirical bent in these noms? Didn't these guys used to take risks? So mundane and trivial. Why not include truly horrible, manipulative titles such as 'Ted'? That would have taken balls and been on point. The omissions are actually more telling than the inclusions which indicate laziness and settling for the cheap hits by trying to elicit reactions from teeny boppers.

  • Sad | January 8, 2013 7:37 PMReply

    It's a hatred of women. They did this to tarnish the franchise plain and simple. This is so sad that they had to do this. To hate a film so badly and the fans of the film and the hatred of women, why did Indiewire even give them the time of day? Just like "Making Money" said, Breaking Dawn 2 was not the worst film of the year. Pirannah 3D wasn't worse than BD2? Or how about The House at the End of the Street? Or Guilt Trip?

    This was a slap in the face to Twilight fans. Everyone who hated the franchise, this is their revenge. But the Razzies are just making money. Their no good whores for doing this. But you won't have these fans to push around anymore. So get your kicks off now while you can.

  • LOL | January 9, 2013 10:31 AM

    A hatred of women? Really? Go fuck yourself.

  • Liz | January 8, 2013 7:36 PMReply

    I think this is so funny. There were more films that deserved to be on the list but aren't. I get that Twilight isn't everyone's favorite movie, but to be honest, it was a fine movie. Now, That's My Boy on the other hand, definitely deserves to be on the list.

  • Jane | January 8, 2013 7:30 PMReply

    Congrats to all the nominees! The Twilight franchise definitely legendary at the Razzies.

  • MAKING MONEY...BOGUS LIST | January 8, 2013 7:28 PMReply

    NOW HERE THIS: THIS IS THE LAST TIME THE RAZZIES CAN MAKE ANY MONEY OFF OF THE VOTING FOR A TWILIGHT FILM SO THEY WENT OUT WITH A BANG!

    OMG ARE THE RAZZIES EFFING SERIOUS?!! Where's The House on the End of the Street?!!!! Breaking Dawn 2 was not the WORST FILM OF THE YEAR!!!

    This is absolutely so sad of them, it's crazy that they would use a loyal fanbase so they can make money. To vote for a razzie you have to pay them. So that's how they make money. I do not understand why the press even gives them credibility because if THE HOUSE ON THE END OF THE STREET isn't even nominated, then the list is totally about making money off of Twilight fans. It's a darn shame they're getting away with this.

  • Alex Thomas | January 8, 2013 7:05 PMReply

    What a joke, Breaking Dawn Part II was a decent movie, nowhere near the bottom films of the year.

    I can't really fault any other nomination though, but still feel that people have predetermined opinions about the Twilight films and just love sinking the boot in.

  • Shaniqua | January 8, 2013 6:50 PMReply

    I am so outraged because I loved these movies.
