‘Twilight’ Finale Sweeps 2013 Razzie Awards
The Twilight finale swept the 2013 Razzie Awards in a ceremony held on Saturday night.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 walked away with seven Razzies, although the accomplishment is not a cause for celebration. The sole purpose of the Razzies, presented by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation, is to shine a spotlight on the worst movies of the year.
Traditionally held the night before the Academy Awards, the Razzies serve as an amusing alternative to Hollywood’s biggest night of cinematic appreciation.
In previous years, big-name stars such as Halle Berry have even turned up at the ceremony to cheekily accept their award.
The Los Angeles Times writes that the last film in the Twilight saga dominated the Razzie Awards this year. Breaking Dawn – Part 2 won in the worst picture category, towering above films such as Battleship, A Thousand Words, and That’s My Boy.
Breaking Dawn – Part 2 also took away awards for worst screen ensemble and worst remake, rip-off, or sequel. Bill Condon was given the honor of worst director for the film.
Kristen Stewart was deemed worst actress, winning for her work in both Twilight and Snow White and the Huntsman.
Taylor Lautner topped the worst supporting actor category, in addition to his win alongside co-star Mackenzie Foy for worst screen couple.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Adam Sandler was one of the few non-Twilight winners of the night, taking the top spot in two categories. Along with his worst actor win for That’s My Boy, Sandler and the film also netted a Razzie for worst screenplay.
