With the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences set to reveal this year's nominations for the Academy Awards shortly, the 31st Razzie Awards have unleashed selections of their own. As is the case with every year's nominees, the following selections are what that group believe to be the "best of the worst" from 2010. Check out the press release below and sound off with your thoughts.

The 31st Annual RAZZIE Awards announced their nominations, with sequels, remakes, and rip-offs dominating. The so-called "winners of the worsts" will be awarded on Hollywood’s Barnsdall Gallery Theatre on Saturday, February 26. "RAZZIE repeat offender M. Night Shyamalan 're-imagined' the faux-anime TV series THE LAST AIRBENDER into a jumbled, jump-cut mess of a movie that fans of the TV show hated even more than critics did (if that’s even possible!). In addition to Worst Director and Worst Picture, the film is up for Worst Remake, Worst Screenplay, Worst Screen Couple/Ensemble (the entire cast) and a brand-new RAZZIE category for 2010, Worst Eye-Gouging Mis-Use of 3-D." TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE also received 9 nominations. All three of the principal characters of ECLIPSE are individually nominated for their acting, and the entire cast is also up for Worst Screen Ensemble.

I think most of the nominees deserve to win especially the talentless luckiest woman in the world Jennifer Anniston. But  I'm dumbfounded not seeing Katherine Heigl nominated here as well

jedibanner 1/24/2011 8:57:03 AM

Wow, Sylverster as worst Director for the Expendables???

Nuts....

JediBanner, that's exactly why I can't stand the Razzies. Rather than nominating the actual worst films (and there's far worse than the ones listed above), they use their ceremony to take pot shots at people. In this case, they took one giant shot at Sylvester Stallone there. Notice how they didn't nominate The Expendables for any other category?

Not sure what their reasoning is here..Maybe they think it's humorous to target Sly..but it all seems childish on their parts.

The only movies on this list I've seen were Clash Of The Titans and Sex And The City 2.  I guess I've missed some truely awful cinema.  Not sad about that.

 If only the Razzies had SOME credibility. They are just a bunch of no-talent critics who rag on the unpopular films, rather than the bad films that deserve it. For example, even though im not a fan of Twilight, Eclipse was not a bad movie by any means.

It's like their 12 year old hormonal boys, or comic-book guy from the Simpsons :)

"Josh Brolin's face?" Actually, that was the best part, and they are nominated for a make-up award. 

Bah. Dumbasses.

Although I have yet to see the sequels, I just recently saw the first Twilight on youtube...man and I was even more deeply disappointed than I thought I'd be and even using the word disappointed is a great understatement!  I was going in expecting Twilight to be just an average teen romance horror drama but it's even far below average to my surprise!  Poor acting, a badly written script, misguided direction, boring characters, and uninspired action make Twilight easily one of the worst genre movies I have ever seen! Twilight is sh$t, no doubt about it and if it's sequels are no better than I hope they win as many Razzies as they can take!

Keith...Look at Peak's comment above...Even if you thought the first Twilight was god awful (and I thought it was..), don't judge others by the same cover. Even if you hate the franchise, there's no way, IMO, that director David Slade deserves to be mentioned for Eclipse...Not for direction anyway. It's sappy, it's a love story, etc...but bad directing? Yeah...right...Nice try, Razzies...

How the heck can piranha 3d not be anywhere on here?  I did a one dollar redbox rental on that and felt I got ripped off. 

wallyrus 1/24/2011 1:25:14 PM

 What's wrong with "The Expendables"?

Butchman 1/24/2011 1:56:38 PM

Eclipse was awful, extremely poor acting and so-so effects
