(Newser) – A nice bit of schadenfreude for Twilight haters: Breaking Dawn Part 2, the merciful final installment in the vampire saga, leads this year's nominations for the Golden Raspberry Awards (aka Razzies), which honor the year's worst films. It managed to grab a nomination in each of the 10 categories, plus an 11th nomination because it was nominated twice in the Worst Screen Couple category, E! reports. Lead actress Kristen Stewart scored a second Worst Actress nomination too, for Snow White and the Huntsman. Other much-dishonored films: Adam Sandler's That's My Boy, with nine nominations, and Rihanna's Battleship, with seven. Awards are handed out the day before the Oscars, Feb. 23.

On a more serious note, BAFTA nominations also came out today, and Steven Spielberg's Lincoln dominated that field with 10 nominations, the Los Angeles Times reports. Tom Hooper's Les Miserables and Ang Lee's Life of Pi came in second with nine nominations each, followed by James Bond flick Skyfall with eight. All of the above except Skyfall were nominated for best film, along with Ben Affleck's Argo and Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty. Those five best film nominees also made up the five Director's Guild of America Award nominees that were announced yesterday, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The DGA Awards will be held Feb. 2; the BAFTAs are Feb. 10.

If you have watched any of the cast interviews you know they panned it themselves as a piece of crap. But a piece of crap that got each of them paid into the $100'sM. So they literally laughed all the way to the bank. You have to give it to them that none of them will have to work again.

the razzies might mean something if the oscars weren't such a joke already.

The Razzies are getting to be rather pretentious themselves. They nominated Liam Neeson this year. Come on he trained Obi Wan & Batman, fought wolves, killed his families kidnappers and saved Jews, but he can't play a believable battleship captain fighting aliens? That being said, ripping on Twilight has become old and boring. All films did quite well at the box office, some smashing previous held records. Obviously it is more than well liked by quite a few. I understand it may not be some peoples thing or choice of movie, but it apparently is a lot of peoples as it sold more tickets than most movies released. It was made for those fans and to make a butt ton of money. I can honestly say there were several worse films out there that should have been picked on before this mega money maker that has a huge satisfied happy audience. Most of them are from Tyler Perry and Adam Sandler or directly from formulated scripts that are predictable or remakes. I am tied between Avengers and the Hobbit as my favorites from 2012. ( I know I am a sci-fi/ fantasy nerd.) I loved Chronicle too and I am still trying to figure out what the hell Prometheus was supposed to be. Very rarely do the movies I actually like get nominated for Oscars and when they do some other movie usually wins or they are nominated for a crew or tech category.
