Twilight finale tipped to dazzle at Razzies

THE Twilight finale has been nominated for a Razzie - singling out Hollywood's worst films of the year.

THE Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 led the line-up last night 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 Battleship, The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure, That's My Boy and A Thousand Words.

A spoof of the Academy Awards, the Razzies announcement came just before tomorrow's Oscar nominations. Winners for the 33rd annual Razzies will be announced February 23, the night before the Oscars.

The final instalment 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 -- Stewart and Pattinson and Lautner and 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.

Razzies founder John Wilson said: "This is our equivalent to The Lord of the Rings. It's our members' last chance to razz Twilight."
