The night before the Academy Awards presents Oscars to the best achievement in films, the 31st annual Razzie Awards celebrated the ‘Berry Worst Achievement in Film’ for 2010
The big ‘winner’ -- so to speak -- at the satirical ceremony presented by the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation on Saturday evening at Barnsdall Gallery Theatre was M. Night Shyamalan’s critically skewered 3-D fantasy film, ‘The Last Airbender.’
The film took home Razzies for worst picture, worst director, worst screenplay, worst supporting actor for Jackson Rathbone, who also won for ‘Twilight Saga: Eclipse,’ and the new Razzie category, worst eye-gouging misuse of 3-D.
The evening’s other major loser was ‘Sex and the City 2,’ which took home worst actress for all four of its stars -- Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon -- worst sequel and worst screen ensemble honors.
Worst actor went to Ashton Kutcher for two films -- ‘Killers’ and ‘Valentine’s Day’ -- and worst supporting actress went to Jessica Alba for four films -- ‘The Killer Inside Me,’ ‘Little Fockers,’ ‘Machete’ and ‘Valentine’s Day.’
Though the Razzie nominees rarely attend the ceremony, Sandra Bullock did show up last year, the night before she won her Oscar for ‘The Blind Side,’ to pick up her Razzie for the comedic dud ‘All About Steve.’
