Twilight

Before we say anything else, there's something that must be said. Yes, we are MTV, the same MTV that, for the past five years, has heaped Golden Popcorn onto "The Twilight Saga," an otherwise award-less franchise. (Hey, sorry for giving our audience what they want, right?) We've been a home for wayward Twi-hards from the very beginning, but before you dismiss what we have to say, hear us out.

"Breaking Dawn - Part 2" simply did not deserve the public shaming at the hands of the Razzies, who officially announced their Worst Achievement in Film nominees today.

The anti-Academy Awards, which traditionally announce their nominees a day before their unironic counterpart, unleashed 11 nominations for Golden Raspberries onto the fifth "Twilight" film, despite there only being ten categories. The closest contender, "That's My Boy," only managed to fail to the tune of eight nominations.

Adam Sandler

"The Artist," the schmartist. Adam Sandler was the real winner this weekend. Or at least he is if you consider more than doubling the record number of Razzie nominations an individual has ever received in a single year to be an accomplishment.

The actor's three films in 2011 -- "Just Go With It," "Jack & Jill" and "Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star" (which he helped produce) -- earned Sandler a grand total of 11 Razzie nominations this year, including Worst Picture and Worst Actor. That's pretty impressive, considering there are only 10 categories to be nominated in.

Paris Hilton in 'The Hottie and the Nottie'Is it just me, or was 2008 one of the worst years for movies ever?

Lindsay LohanArticle by Gil Kaufman

Our own Larry Carroll gave us a preview of the 2007 Golden Raspberry Award nominees a few weeks ago from his insider perspective as a Razzies voter, tipping us off to the fact that the 28th annual awards might be the only chance for Lindsay Lohan to get any hardware this year. With the official nominations now out, Lohan leads with nine, thanks to the box office mega-bomb “I Know Who Killed Me,” not to be outdone by Eddie Murphy, who was close behind with eight nods for his latest we-get-it-you’re-funny-in-a-fat-suit-and-drag snoozer, “Norbit.”

Lohan, who scored the first-ever twofer in the Worst Actress category (one for each twin she played in the movie), will face off against Murphy for Worst Screen Couple (each playing opposite themselves), and her flick also notched nods for Worst Excuse for a Horror Movie, Worst Screenplay, Worst Director and Worst Remake or Rip-off.

Lindsay LohanOne of the best parts of being an entertainment journalist is getting a vote in the annual Golden Raspberry Awards, and this year's nominees once again offer a welcome opportunity to strike back at all the really, really bad movies we had to sit through in the past year.

The 28th annual nominations are led by free-falling film star Lindsay Lohan, whose "I Know Who Killed Me" landed her nominations as both Worst Actress and Worst Screen Couple (since she played twins in the flick). Topping her, however, is Eddie Murphy in "Norbit," nominated for Worst Actor (as his character Norbit), Worst Supporting Actor (as Mr. Wong), Worst Supporting Actress (as Rasputia) and Worst Screen Couple. Could Murphy follow up last year's Oscar nomination with a sweep of acting Razzies? Read More...
