Not Jessica Biel!! Couldn't they have put Kristen Stewart in there for On The Road?

Who saved Taylor Kitsch's sorry little ass? "Battlefield" speaks for itself, and he was consistently the weak link in "John Carter" and "Savages".

They should start a new category for Worst One Week Box Office Horror Success. By the time the audience figures out they've been duped (go to our website!), the money's already in the Caymans.

Unfortunately The Razzie's have become as predictable and pointless as anything they mock these days. Seriously, there are far worse movie's than Twilight this year, but because it's popular to hate that's what the Razzie's go with. This is like using the BO returns to determine what the best movie of the year is. Yeah in general they'll be pretty good films, but in the end it's just lazy.

Quite possibly the only comment with common sense in here.

I think twilight got it simply because all of the other in the franchise were awful, and the newest one certainly wasn't good so due to its history it ends up nominated again.

And hey the Oscars do things like that too.

It's been the case with the Razzies for quite a while sadly. They're more about jumping the hate bandwagon than anything else. I mean TF3, Eclipse, the first two Star Wars prequels weren't great films, sure, but they were far from being in the bottom five worst films of their respective years. Also, how is it that not a single spoof movie won a worst picture or worst director razzie? I mean at least Michael Bay can shoot impressive action sequences, can anyone name anything reedeming about Disaster Movie or Epic Movie?

Even more questionable are their worst actors and worst actresses awards. Just because an actor is in a bad movie does not mean he gave a bad performance. I haven't seen Battleship, but I have a hard time believing that Liam Neeson put in one of the worst performances of year, given that even in awful movies I've yet to see him give a bad performance.

Unfortunately, even in the worst sequel award Twilight got nominated, despite that being an online voting poll. Shows you that you can never leave it up to internet nerds either (I keep getting images of Comic Book Guy typing furiously "worst movie ever!")

I wouldn't recommend Battleship, it sucked badly, but regardless of that, Liam did NOT give a bad performance in there, let alone in any other shitty movie he's come out in from that same year.

Took a while for the inevitable edgy hate-it-because-its-popular snide blogger comment, I'm surprised.

Meh, it's nowhere near being the worse film of the year. Worst of the series? Most likely, but not on par with the likes of such films as these.

Let's hope Twilight eats it this time. A final f-u to one of the worst franchises in history. And sorry, but Murphy is more deserving of Worst Actor than Sandler this year. A Thousand Words is four-year-old crap that should've just stayed on the shelf. At least That's My Boy had a couple funny moments. Words had jack s#!+.

Liam Neeson getting nominated is kind of sad, he should choose better movies, but he wasn't bad in Battleship (didn't see Wrath of the Titans)

What about "The Apparition", "Chernobyl Diaries", "Gone", "House at the End of the Street", and "Silent Hill: Revelation 3D"? Razzie, you missed those out! X-L

Not to mention another five more including, but not limited to "ATM", "The Babymakers", "The Cold Light of Day", "The Devil Inside", and "A Little Bit of Heaven". X-O

The only one that I have any remorse for is Liam Neeson, because he is such a great actor.

Indeed. The greatest day of my life will be when Adam Sandler is either fired or retired.

Liam Neeson has been pretty horrible in everything he has done recently, a dramatic fall from playing Oscar Schindler. He is quickly becoming the new Nicholas Cage.

I'll admit, I actually liked Battleship, but most of these are well placed otherwise.

Seriously?! It didn't even make sense. Battleship was always 2 battalions of sea-faring ships fighting each other, NOT the freaking NAVY trying to get recruits and saying "Oh look, if aliens were to invade, we'll get Rhianna and Liam Neeson to save us!
