The Razzie Awards: "The Last Airbender" is the best winner, er, loser


The night before the Academy Awards presents Oscars to the best achievement in films, the 31st annual Razzie Awards celebrated the  "Berry Worst Achievement in Film" for 2010

The big "winner" -- so to speak -- at the satirical ceremony presented by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation on Saturday evening at Barnsdall Gallery Theatre was M. Night Shyamalan's critically skewered 3-D fantasy film, "The Last Airbender."

The film took home Razzies for worst picture, worst director, worst screenplay, worst supporting actor for Jackson Rathbone, who also won for "Twilight Saga: Eclipse," and the new Razzie category, worst eye-gouging misuse of 3-D.

The evening's other major loser was "Sex and the City 2," which took home worst actress for all four of its stars -- Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon -- worst sequel and worst screen ensemble honors.

Worst actor went to Ashton Kutcher for two films -- "Killers" and "Valentine's Day" -- and worst supporting actress went to Jessica Alba for four films -- "The Killer Inside Me," "Little Fockers," "Machete" and "Valentine's Day."

Though the Razzie nominees rarely attend the ceremony, Sandra Bullock did show up last year, the night before she won her Oscar for "The Blind Side," to pick up her Razzie for the comedic dud "All About Steve."

'Last Airbender,' 'Twilight Saga: Eclipse' lead 31st annual Razzie nominations


M. Night Shyamalan may have received best director and screenplay Oscar nominations for the 1999 best picture nominee "The Sixth Sense," but more recently his films are being nominated for the Golden Raspberry -- Razzie -- Awards. His 2010 misfire, "The Last Airbender," makes him a threepeat offender in the Razzie world after 2006's "The Lady in the Water" and 2008's "The Happening."

His 3-D version of the popular animated TV series scored nine Razzie nominations Monday morning, including worst picture, director, remake, screenplay, worst screen couple/worst ensemble and a new Razzie category, worst eye-gouging misuse of 3-D.

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."

Battling it out for worst actor are nominees Jack Black for "Gulliver's Travels," Gerard Butler for "The Bounty Hunter," Ashton Kutcher for "Killers" and "Valentine's Day," Taylor Lautner for "Eclipse" and "Valentine's Day," and Robert Pattinson for "Remember Me" and "Eclipse."

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."

Those with the dubious distinction of being nominated in the supporting actress category are

'Twilight' eclipses rivals at People's Choice Awards

Despite rumors to the contrary, the public is not so fickle. The mass of humanity voting for the People's Choice Awards stuck with familiar faves when picking winners.

One year after Johnny Depp won two People's Choice Awards for favorite movie actor of 2009 and favorite movie actor of the decade, he returned to claim the trophy as the first favorite actor of 2010 too. The latest "Twilight" installment, "Eclipse," won favorite movie and favorite on-screen team just as the previous version ("New Moon") did last year.

Twilight saga eclipse people's choice awardsThat crowd pleaser Adam Sandler, past recipient of four People's Choice Awards, claimed yet another (favorite comedy star).

However, Angelina Jolie no longer reigns as a favorite action star, a prize she won twice in the past. This year she lost to Jackie Chan. In addition, she lost favorite actress to "Twilight Saga: Eclipse" lovebird Kristen Stewart. At least Angie still has Brad . and a house full of kiddies to console her.

Stewart's victory was a nice rebound, considering she lost the category last year to Sandra Bullock.

The "Iron Man" franchise finally flexed its muscle. Two years after the first version lost three People's Choice prizes, part two nabbed the laurel as favorite action film crushing Angelina Jolie's "Salt."
