The Playlist By Edward Davis | The Playlist January 8, 2013 at 6:33PM

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 categories. The Bill Condon-directed film even managed the feat of 11 nominations in only 10 categories, including Worst Picture, Director, Lead Actress, Lead Male and, well,... every other category.
