‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2’ leads Razzie nominations, color me surprised.

Who’s surprised that ‘Breaking Dawn Part 2’ leads the Razzie nominations?? Not this girl! That movie sucked SO BAD….I had serious doubts for people I knew who said they liked it. It’s beyond bad. The only likable thing about the final Twilight film – is that it’s the final Twilight film. It’s over. DONE. No more of this nightmare.

The “Twilight” finale had better reviews than the franchise’s previous four movies, but you’d never know it from the Razzie nominations singling out Hollywood’s worst of the year.

“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” led the Razzies lineup late Tuesday with 11 nominations, including worst picture, lead-acting slots for Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, and supporting-acting nominations for Taylor Lautner and Ashley Greene.

Other worst-picture nominees are the naval action tale “Battleship,” the family flick “The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure,” Adam Sandler’s raunchy dud “That’s My Boy” and Eddie Murphy’s comedy flop “A Thousand Words.”

A spoof of the Academy Awards, the Razzies announcement came a little more than a day before Thursday’s Oscar nominations. Winners for the 33rd annual Razzies will be announced Feb. 23, the night before the Oscar show.

The final installment in the supernatural romance involving vampires, werewolves and a moody schoolgirl, “Breaking Dawn – Part 2” also had nominations for worst director for Bill Condon, plus worst sequel, screenplay and screen ensemble. It picked up two nominations for worst screen couple – for Stewart and Pattinson and for Lautner and child co-star Mackenzie Foy.

Stewart’s worst-actress nomination came for two performances in 2012, her Bella Swan of “Twilight” and the title role in “Snow White and the Huntsman.”

Earlier “Twilight” movies have been regular nominees for the Razzies but have not come away with any key worst-of awards. But the finale seems to be the one Razzies voters have been waiting for, the way Oscar voters were waiting for the last “Lord of the Rings” film, the one that finally won the big prize.

“That’s the analogy we’re making, that this is the Razzies’ flipside,” said Razzies founder John Wilson. “This is our equivalent to `The Lord of the Rings.’ It’s our members’ last chance to razz `Twilight.'”

Here’s how Razzies organizers describe the “Twilight” finale in the nominations announcement: “The ultimate installment of the inexplicably successful series focuses on Shirtless Werewolf Jacob and his creepy relationship with the daughter of Sparkly Vampire Edward and Gloomy Goth Gal Bella. Together, the four face a final showdown that will determine the fate of Romantic-But-Boring Monsters everywhere.”

Couldn’t have said it better myself!

Honoring the Twilight “love story”. How sweet.

I think we already know who will buy this.

‘Breaking Dawn 2’ misses the Twilight box office record!

The final installment of Twilight hit theaters this weekend, and in the meantime scored the eighth biggest opening of all time with $141.3 million. ‘Breaking Dawn Part 1’ hit theaters last year with $138.1 million, and ‘New Moon’ opened with $142.8 million in 2009.

Impressively, “Breaking Dawn — Part 2” also earned $199.6 million in its international debut this weekend, giving it an early global total of $340.9 million. When all is said and done, the film will likely finish just above $700 million. After all, the last three Twilight films — Breaking Dawn — Part 1, Eclipse, and New Moon — earned $712.2 million, $709.8 million, and $698.5 million, respectively. Like I said, it’s a remarkably consistent franchise.

That consistency may be why Breaking Dawn — Part 2 didn’t experience an expected box office boost, despite being the grand finale of the popular franchise. Other finales have earned substantially more on their opening weekends, drawing in casual viewers who want to be part of the pop culture moment. In 2011 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 opened 35 percent higher than its predecessor with $169.2 million. In 2005 Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith (which was thought to be the final Star Wars film at the time) started with 36 percent more than its predecessor with $108.4 million. But it appears that The Twilight Saga is a different beast. Fans are either in — and they’ve been in for a few years — or they’re not interested.

Fortunately for Summit (a Lionsgate company following their acquisition earlier this year), who spent about $120 million to produce Breaking Dawn — Part 2, that cult of loyal fans is still gigantic. The film scored a blazing $34,717 per theater average from its 4,070 theaters — the best average at the entire box office. Twihards are known for rushing to the theater at the first possible moment, so Breaking Dawn — Part 2 is expected to fall quickly from here, but with the lucrative Thanksgiving frame coming up, it should enjoy at least one more massive weekend and climb to about $300 million total.

Did you see it over the weekend? I think I’m going to have to see it tonight. I’ve heard it’s not as bad as many expected it to be. So far I haven’t heard many people upset with the “twist” ending….so that’s a good thing. What did you think of it? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Here are new pictures of the cast at the Berlin premiere. They have to be so excited all this is finally winding down!

Kristen Stewart wears a bizarre lace suit to the UK premiere of ‘Breaking Dawn 2’

I don’t really understand this pantsuit that Kristen wore to the UK premiere of ‘Breaking Dawn 2’ yesterday. Part of me really wants to love it (because I absolutely LOVE black lace), but I’m finding myself thinking it is just strange.

The pantsuit is Zuhair Murad. It’s just all sorts of wrong. Sorry, I can’t get over it.

So here are more pictures of the crew. Kristen, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner (does he wear the same suit to every premiere?). In Touch weekly is reporting that Kristen and Robert are going to break up as soon as promotions for Breaking Dawn is over.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have reconciled their relationship since she cheated on him, even having been caught kissing at her house! The two are reunited on the red carpet, but it may not be for good, if a new report is to be believed.

In Touch magazine claims that Rob, 26, is planning to dump Kristen, 22, for good once their obligations to the Twilight Saga are complete.

“He’s been waiting for all the promotion for Breaking Dawn — Part 2 to be over, and then he’s going to move on fully,” a source tells the publication. “He won’t have a tie to her after all this is done, and then he won’t be forced to see her.”

It seems that Rob’s broken trust in Kristen hasn’t fully healed, and no matter how much he cares for her, he can’t get over it.

“Rob loves her; he always will. But it’s over in his mind,” the insider says. “For any relationship to survive, there has to be trust. And Kristen lost Rob’s.”

I have always thought that the only reason why the two of them got back together after Kristen was caught cheating….was because they had this movie they had to go out and promote. Once Twilight is behind them, I do see them going separate ways. And I would know, right? Years of expertise? 🙂
