Twilight Saga installment 4: The Razzies | January 10, 2013

The Razzies are out.

The golden raspberry of shame has its eyes set on the worst of what Hollywood offers up as apparently, movies.
It makes me laugh to say, that out of the ten categories for nominations: including; Worst picture, Worst Director, Worst Actress, Worst Actor, Worst Supporting Actress, Worst Supporting Actor, Worst Screen Ensemble, Worst Screenplay, Worst Remake Rip-off or Sequel and Worst Screen Couple. Twilight Breaking Dawn, Part 2, scored 11 nominations. Yep, twice in one category for Worst screen couple. Because it/they are just that bad.

That would be because Taylor Lautner who plays Jacob the wolf, is paired up, so to speak, with Mackenzie Foy, the baby of Bella and Edward with the stupidest name ever imagined, who he imprints on when he first sees her. Yeah, that was almost as boring to type out as read. And far more creepy in a ‘don’t touch me’ kind of way.


Taylor also got a Razzie for worst supporting actor in the same movie. So clearly, he really didn’t give all that much support as the category of his nomination would suggest. Maybe it just came down to who had the better abs and a whole lot of Jealousy. Maybe R-Patz is a secret voting member of The Golden Raspberry Foundation and rigged the votes to stack against Taylor because he was just soooo jealous. And because he’d been nominated for so many other things himself because of his association in the Twilight Saga.

Maybe I have too much of an active imagination in that being the true story behind this. Either way, it’s hilarious.
The media release from the Razzies made their feelings on Twilight Breaking Dawn Pt 2 and Taylor Lautner and co, pretty clear when they said “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.”

The worst part of this is, when I look down the Razzie list of nominations, it’s like a perfect list for “hate-watching” as opposed to B-grade movies (there’s a big difference). You know, “hate watching” is when you watch a movie or a tv show that should by alights have all the potential to be amazing and brilliant and somehow fails miserably despite it’s pretty production and casting.

The success of Twilight I have to admit has baffled me for a long time. I could never wrap my head around how girls think it’s okay to be walked over and used and made to change who they are. But I put that down to just me being well, better than Twihards.

Maybe that’s why the Twilight saga movies (and books) have been so successful, because it’s actually about the hate-watching and the addiction of it. Which actually makes more sense to me than saying Twilight is about an Epic Romance (please, I think I was just a little bit sick in my mouth) – because Jacob seems to be addicted to wanting Bella from what I can gather. So does Edward. And Bella him. It’s like the perfect formula for hate-watching/reading.

Oh my god, my blog post on twilight is turning into hate-watching-reading-posting. It’s brilliant! The winners of the Razzies will be announced the day before the Academy Awards. I would love it if the Twilight cast turned up in person to accept their awards. Like Halle Berry did for Catwoman.
Now that, would be the ultimate in hate-watching-blowing-raspberries.
We can only hope.
