The 31st Annual Razzie Awards announced their choice in nominations. The "winners" will be awarded on Saturday, February 26, 2011 at Hollywood’s Barnsdall Gallery Theatre. These awards go to the movies they consider the WORST for the year. This is NOT an award anyone jumps and down to receive. Many of the movies were sequels, prequels or remakes. The Razzie Awards are announced the day before the Oscar nominations.

To the many hordes of Edward/Bella/Jacob fans in the Twilight Series, complete shock accompanied the screams of "What? No way!" echoed off walls this morning. The unbelievable announcement was made that the TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE had received 9 different nominations for Razzie Awards.
Local area resident Chris B., states, "Eclipse shouldn't have gotten all those Razzie nominations. There were many movies last year that were terrible and yet aren't listed under any of the Worst Categories."
The cast of the Twilight Saga: Eclipse shares the highest number of nominations for Razzie Awards for 2010 with M. Night Shyamalan's "The Last Airbender".
And yet, Eclipse was last year’s 4th biggest money-maker. Strange. It will be interesting to see what happens when the remaining two movies in the series are released. Even though these awards tend to be embarrassing, much attention is being given to the possible recipients. It may not be a bad thing for the all the people involved in the Twilight franchise. Attention can be a good thing.
Here are the categories Eclipse is nominated for:
WORST SCREEN COUPLE / WORST SCREEN ENSEMBLE
The Entire Cast of TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE
WORST SUPPORTING ACTOR
WORST PREQUEL, REMAKE, RIP-OFF or SEQUEL
Other Nominees for Worst Picture besides Eclipse include:
The Last Airbender
The Bounty Hunter
Sex & The City 2
