Also scoring nine thumbs down was the box-office giant "Eclipse," the third installment in "The Twilight Saga."

Joining "Airbender" and "Eclipse" in the worst picture category are "The Bounty Hunter," "Sex and the City 2" and "Vampires Suck."

Worst actress nominees are Jennifer Aniston for "The Bounty Hunter" and "The Switch," Miley Cyrus for "The Last Song," all four gal pals from "Sex and the City 2," Megan Fox for "Jonah Hex" and Kristen Stewart for "Eclipse."

Speakers included her filmmaker brother Larry Cohen, who recalled to mourners how he gave his sister "my little companion" her first celebrity encounter when he took her to see Roy Rogers and Dale Evans at a rodeo in New York City where Chasen briefly met Evans. On their subway ride home, Evans bragged to strangers, beaming, "I touched the queen of the West! I touched the queen of the West!" L.A. TIMES

Modern family? Now that his TV show has won the Emmy as best comedy series, Jesse Tyler Ferguson wants to host the Tonys. He says of his wish, which he tweeted last week, "I'm not joking around.

Basically, everything Neil Patrick Harris does I want to do." NEW YORK POST
