The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 won in seven categories at the 33rd Golden Raspberry Awards in California last night. The vampire series - whose stars Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Mackenzie Foy won solo prizes - dominated at the annual ceremony, which celebrates the worst movies in Hollywood.
As well as being named Worst Picture and Worst Prequel, Remake, Rip-off or Sequel, the entire cast picked up a gong for Worst Screen Ensemble. Individually, Kristen Stewart was awarded with Worst Actress (also for her role in Snow White and the Huntsman) while Bill Condon picked up the Worst Director prize.
Meanwhile, Taylor Lautner was recognized individually with Worst Supporting Actor and collectively with Mackenzie Foy as they were named Worst Screen Couple.
Elsewhere, after he swept the boards with every award at last year's ceremony, Adam Sandler won Worst Actor for his role in That's My Boy, which beat The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 for Worst Screenplay.
-Sandra Bullock may have earned her Razzie, but she’s now willingly returning it. Apparently the actress walked away with the prototype award, not the $5 knockoff she was supposed to receive.
-Speaking of the Razzies, we’ll now get a chance to see the worst of the worst honored live. The ceremony’s producers hope to telecast the awards program beginning with the 31st annual event in 2011.
-Box-office champ Avatar is already breaking records in the home entertainment department. Approximately 1.5 million Blu-ray copies were sold on Day 1, besting The Dark Knight’s previous high.
-The Green Hornet has flown to a new release date. The Seth Rogen film, originally scheduled for December 22, will now open on January 14, 2011 (the MLK holiday weekend). Why? Because Sony wants time to covert the movie into 3D, of course!
Sandra Bullock said she would gladly accept any Razzie that might come her way, and last night, she honored her promise.
On the eve of her potential first Oscar win, The Blind Side actress took time out of her busy schedule to thank those who hated her work. The winner of two Golden Raspberry Awards - one for Worst Actress and Worst Screen Couple - said those who honored her clearly didn’t watch All About Steve.

“Oh my God, how fantastic is that?... I’m showing up if I win… Hell, yes! I do everything 100 percent. With All About Steve, we were trying to do something different. And if it gets some kind of award, that means people are talking about it. I’m more comfortable with criticism than I am with goodwill, because I’m more familiar with it, and I’ve made friends with it. And the Razzies are a great honor.”
-Oscar nominee Sandra Bullock talking about her recent Razzie nomination for Worst Actress.

While Mickey Rourke was busy offending viewers, Paris Hilton and Mike Myers were awarded for offending audiences.
At yesterday’s 29th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards presentation, the two nominees were both (dis)honored with three wins each. Myers’ The Love Guru earned a Razzie for Worst Picture along with awards for Worst Actor and Worst Screenplay.

What do Paris Hilton, Jessica Alba and Cameron Diaz have in common? They might not get dates with Oscar anytime soon, but they still have shots at an award.
Early Wednesday, the three ladies became the latest actresses to contend for a title previously owned by Halle Berry and Lindsay Lohan. Come February 21, the trio - along with the cast of The Women and Kate Hudson - will all by vying for the Worst Actress category at the 29th Annual Razzie Awards.
At today’s announcement, Hilton was named for a total of three acting categories: Worst Actress (The Hottie and the Nottie), Worst Supporting Actress (Repo!: The Genetic Opera) and Worst Screen Couple (with either Christine Lakin or Joel David Moore from Hottie). Meanwhile, Mike Myers’ comeback film, The Love Guru, could walk away with the most honors this year. The “comedy” - with help from Alba and Verne Troyer - was nominated a whopping seven times.

The long-anticipated, still-not-released WWII flick Valkyrie is already getting buzz on the award circuit. The Razzies are looking forward to featuring Cruise in their 2009 ceremonies.
Last year’s Razzie event ended with a series of stills from movies which are expected to be offered awards in the future. A shot of Tom Cruise in his Nazi uniform received a huge reaction from the audience. As the date of the movie’s release draws ever-nearer, Valkyrie is getting attention from reviewers as well.
“This is not his Oscar moment,” states one reviewer. Another calls a would-be intense scene “funny” - not at all what the flick is going for with its tense drama about a plot to murder Adolf Hitler.

Lindsay Lohan - the recent focus of a nude pictorial - has just now earned a heap of awards for her turn as a stripper. Unfortunately, it’s not the kind of merits she was hoping to achieve.
While Hollywood will be celebrating the Best of the Best today, Lohan will have to deal with being this year’s Worst of the Worst. Her last completed film, I Know Who Killed Me, garnered a record eight statues at yesterday’s 28th Annual Golden Raspberry Awards. Up until now, the most any film had attained was seven. (Both Showgirls and Battlefield Earth have reached that mark.)
Lohan, like Eddie Murphy, earned three awards yesterday for their acting work. Lohan tied herself for Worst Actress while also scoring one for Worst Screen Couple (since she played two characters). Murphy snagged his trophies for his three roles in Norbit. (Dreamgirls seems oh so long ago now.)
Congratulations to this year’s winners…

The Razzies, which is sort of a tongue-in-cheek antithesis of the Oscars, recently released their nominations for the worst of the worst. Celebs who topped the list include recently wed - no wait, unwed - Eddie Murphy and Lindsay Lohan.
Alright. Lindsay has taken a lot of flak for her multiple roles in I Know Who Killed Me - the film which received a Razzie nom for Worst Movie in 2007 - but let me say again that I liked the film. (But then, I’m a Lohan fan.) Meanwhile, Murphy picked up several nominations (okay, eight) for his duplicity in Norbit, giving him a record-breaking number of Razzie nods for 2007. No one’s ever received that many before.
Bratz, I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry and Daddy Day Camp also received nominations while Jessica Alba was included in the Worst Actress category for three movies (though rumor has it Lohan will give her stiff competition for that particular award).
Winners will be announced February 23, a day before the Academy Awards.
