(LOS ANGELES) — As Hollywood prepares for Sunday’s Academy Awards to recognize the best of the best, another set of awards will be handed out on Saturday for the worst of the worst.
The Golden Raspberry Awards, more commonly known as the Razzies, honor the worst actors and films of the year.
They are meant to be an Oscar spoof, as they are revealed the day before the big show.
This year’s nominees for “Worst Picture of the Year” are Battleship, The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure, That’s My Boy, A Thousand Words and the final installment of the Twilight series, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2.
At last year’s Razzies, Adam Sandler’s film Jack & Jill set a record by taking home 10 Razzies, causing many to wonder if his film That’s My Boy will sweep again this year.
The fifth and final Twilight movie, Breaking Dawn — Part 2, received 11 nominations. The film’s up for worst picture, and stars Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Ashley Greene are nominated in acting categories.
