Not quite sweeping the ceremony, but still handily leading the pack among this year's Razzie choices is Razzie Repeat Offender M. Night Shyamalan's "re-imagining" of the faux-anime' TV series The Last Airbender into a jumbled, jump-cut mess of a movie that fans of the TV show hated even more than critics did (if that's even possible!). In addition to Worst Director and Worst Picture, The Last Airbender also "won" Worst Screenplay, a brand-new Razzie category for 2010, Worst Eye-Gouging Mis-Use of 3-D, and Worst Supporting Actor Jackson Rathbone (who had the misfortune to appear in both The Last Airbender and 2010's other most-Razzie-nominated title, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse).
The other big "winner" (if that's the right term when speaking of these awards) was the bling-obsessed superslick chick flick Sex and the City 2, which took gold-spray-painted statuettes for Worst Sequel, Worst Screen Ensemble (for its entire cast) and Worst Actress (presented jointly to the film's four principles, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis).
Rounding out the field of this year's sorriest cinematic losers were King of the Twittering Twits Ashton Kutcher as Worst Actor for both Killers and Valentine's Day, and Jessica Alba, finally "winning" a Razzie with her fifth nomination. Alba was named Worst Supporting Actress for her "performances" in four films, The Killer Inside MeLittle Fockers, Machete and Valentine's Day.
The Razzies were created in 1980 as a logical antidote to Tinsel Town's annual glut of self-congratulatory awards by John Wilson, author of The Official Razzie Movie Guide and Everything I Know I Learned at the Movies. "Winners" were determined by mailing ballots to 637 voters in 46 U.S. states and 17 foreign countries. Electronic voting and certification of this year's Final Razzie Ballot was handled by Vote-Now.com.
