Final Twilight film gets 7 Razzies

The last Twilight film won the dubious honour Saturday of being awarded seven Razzies, Hollywood’s anti-Oscar Golden Raspberry prizes, handed out on the eve of the real Academy Awards.
Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 won worst film, worst director for Bill Condon and worst actress for Kristen Stewart, as well as worst supporting actor, worst screen couple, worst screen ensemble and worst remake/rip-off or sequel.
The film fell short of last year’s clean sweep of all 10 categories for Jack and Jill starring Adam Sandler — who won this year’s worst actor for That’s My Boy, which also took the worst screenplay.
Worst supporting actress at the 33rd annual Razzies show — held just down the road from Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre where the 85th Academy Awards take place on Sunday — went to singer Rihanna, making her big screen debut in Battleship.
The winners of nine of the 10 categories were chosen by emailed ballots from 657 voting members in the United States and 19 other countries. The worst remake/rip-off or sequel winner was decided by a poll conducted on movie review website RottenTomatoes.Com, where nearly 70,000 votes were cast, according to Razzie organisers.
Nominees who failed to win a Razzie included veteran diva Barbra Streisand for worst actress in mother-son road movie The Guilt Trip, while Sandler beat rivals including Nicolas Cage and Eddie Murphy to worst actor.
Besides Twilight, the other films shortlisted for worst movie of 2012 were Battleship, family movie The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure, That’s My Boy and A Thousand Words starring comedy veteran Murphy.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
